Like Fiat, many American consumers who aren’t automobile enthusiasts have little knowledge of Alfa Romeo, but that is all about to change. Alfa Romeo officially began importing its sports cars to the U.S. in 1961, and became a division of Fiat when it was acquired in 1986. After pulling out of the U.S. market in 1995, Alfa Romeo returned 20 years later with the launch of the sporty Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and later the open-air Alfa Romeo 4C Spider.
These two sports cars bring a lot of excitement to the brand with a visceral, bare-bones design that seems to have more in common with a race car than a production car. The pint-sized two-seaters provide plenty of excitement with its mid-engine 1.75-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a carbon fiber monocoque.
For now, the 4C Coupe and 4C Spider are the only cars available in the Alfa Romeo lineup, but the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan will soon be joining the mix. This car goes on sale in 2016 with a Ferrari-sourced 505-hp twin-turbo V-6 and an aggressive design to back up the engine’s performance. Down the road, Alfa Romeo is also expected to add a crossover, and it should offer a similar focus on performance as the existing models do.
The reinvigorated Alfa Romeo brand will focus on attainable performance with the 4C’s $55,900 starting price representing a great value when you consider the type of car this is.
