Very few manufacturers have the panache to sell both a $300,000 exotic sports car and a budget compact city car. Although its most expensive offering is the only model currently being shipped to the United States, we can anticipate more offerings from Alfa Romeo in the future.
The name Alfa Romeo came about in 1920 after the original name, Società Anonima Italiana Darracq (SAID), was changed. This Italian manufacturer is known for producing vehicles that fit in every income bracket but is probably best known for building expensive sports cars. Alfa Romeo has many vehicles to choose, offering a little something to everyone.
Here are some of the offering that Alfa Romeo has to choose from: the Giulia, 1750 series, 1900 series, 2000 series, 2600 series, and the 8C Competzione, just to name a few. The Giulia sedan has ceased to be available in the U.S and was replaced by the 1750 Berlina Sedan. The 1750 series was eventually replaced by the 2000 series, but both of their costs fall somewhere in the median price range for the Alfa Romeo vehicles. As history has proven, the 2000 series was replaced in time with the six-cylinder Alfa Romeo 2600.
The 1900 Alfa Romeo sport sedan was the first vehicle produced by Alfa Romeo to not only be offered with the option of left-hand drive but also was the first car built entirely on the manufacturer’s production line. The 1900 Alfa Romeo also came in two-door and four-door models.
The most recent vehicle added to the Alfa Romeo family is the 8C Competizione sports car. Its name refers to the eight-cylinder engine found underneath its hood. The word “competizione” is Italian for competition. The name is well suited for the car and is obviously an inspiration that blossomed from the Alfa Romeo racing background.
