Yeah, earlier Alfa was building their 'own style' cars, which were perfect and nice, not like now - Giulietta and MiTo - women's toys. Why not to make at least a proper saloon? I'm so missing the GTA series... Hopefully, they're going to introduce the 4C sport coupe, but 200 hp for an 8C Competizione successor? Are they kidding?

Great sounding car. Faster than the 320i Beamer. But keep in mind that's an italian car! If it had passed the 100'000kms then it'll go past 250'000kms. The dangerous zone is about 80-100'000kms. In this window, the piston rod bearing will break. Also high consumption 11l/100kms! and much wear and spare parts needed! like suspension arms etc.

Love my 156 2.0ts veloce it keeps up, out runs and out handles most in its class(my opinion but have owned bmws and audis, depends on spec but 2.0s from experience is true), have done lots of field research. Get one, its fast and handles like nothing else for the money.

Great handling, better than the new fat 159. In 1997 no other saloon had its feeling on the road.
