I've always liked the look of the Alfa Romeo, but have heard that it's not the most reliable car....

So true...I owned two 33's and a 155  Big thumbs up, and whilst engine/chassis and other mechanicals will never be a problem, the electricals are definitely something that lets to be desired  Sad

Looks very Japanese--front looks like an old Honda Prelude.
I'll pass.

Looks japanese!!!?????

Hey don't offend Alfa! An italian car will never look like a japanese one. Japanese cars may try to look like italians, but they will never be the same.

A front quarter shot does not do an Alfa justice. I have always felt that Alfa Romeo's are among the best looking mass produced cars out there. There is something about style that the Italians have seemed to have mastered.

As for the 4th generation Preluede that Greg alluded too, I also think that is a pretty good looking car... so no offence to the Italians.

It is one of the best looking cars ever...

Looking like a Japanese?! You haven't seen one in real yet I think... Big grin

No..on closer inspection..it looks like they lifted the headlamps right from the Prelude...and the body looks like an Accord.
The waterfall grill, however, is a nice touch.

Pictures seldom do justice to Alfa Romeo's designers.

I know it is just me, but I hate that Alfas don't have the front number plate in the middle but on the side. Looks very odd.

Bobrayner: It's a Fiat with nicer packaging.

And a Maserati, it's an Alfa with nicer packaging?  Nuts
