Here was stolen from 155.org but either way its quite interesting.

I quite like the idea tbh.

As far as Im concerned VW can keep Seat!

i heard about this idea a while ago, i think its because alfa romeo want to sell cars in america, thats why there making loads of automatic cars now. think i wouldd prefer a bmw x5 unless they make some beasty motor inside it.
NaanBread
the x5 is a nasty car! not just to look at, but it cant actually do anything that its meant to. Also the X5 is what gave the range rover (a much more profound 4x4) the name of chelsea tractor cos idiot women drivers cant drive them as far as Im concerned.

I hate 4x4's but I wouldn't mind a 3.2 V6 Busso lump in anything...and jeep?

Brilliant. That's really gonna help Alfa's already awful reputation in the states, by sticking a few badges and a grille to some s**tty Chrysler no3.gif

Mercedes already tried, failed and promtly ran away! How can Fiat think they're gonna do any better?
NaanBread
well either Alfa Romeo move with the times...or go bust! or even worse get sold to the nazi's!

Im not convinced.. an alfa 4x4.. dodgy but they are all at it.. but near the bottom of the article..

An ALFA MINIVAN NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! dear sweet jebus h christ noooooooooo!

Dont do it Alfa!.. we already have the breadvan thanks
NaanBread
yeah but again they hav to move with the times...and old people like mini vans and if it gets them a few more car sales then why not! if they can raise the cash then maybe they can build something much better than the new Gulietta or however its spelt.

Its a harsh reality, but i believe it has to be done! like I said, anything better than been bought out by a none Italian company!
Tifosi1976
it's funny, some of these comments remind me of when Alfa switched to FWD...................

That just looks like a Porsche Cayenne to me, not much going on with it really. I hope they put the v8 from the 8c in there though. I don't think the 3.2 busso will be enough for the top of the range model.

I think it looks OK.

Two of my pals drive X5's and they are fabulous cars. Contrary to popular belief they will go anywhere and do almost everything you ask of them.

3.0 Diesel fully loaded with all the M sport trappings ...............yup I'd have one of them ! They go like stink, will return 30mpg and look the mutts nuts.

Then again I just woke up and realised I don't have 50K lying around the house sad.gif

I'm not!!!!

This is the replacement for the 166 apparently.


Tifosi1976
and the GT's replacement

Tifosi1976
Don't think this will replace anything in the Alfa range but hey, what the heck, it IS the American way. Big is better right? That's why they're all such fat b*****ds.

That'll be the Alfa BMWX3thatsomeonehasbadlygraftedanAlfagrilleonto. Looks like it might be the Sport variant too...

I like the wheels on the GT replacement..are they standard then?

No. Sadly those dumb ass yanks have gone down Ze German route and everything is an optional extra. Standard wheels are in fact square which can lead to a somewhat uncomfortable ride, in order to get you to spend a 1/4 of the cost of the 'car' on an 'upgrade' so the car can be driven in comfort.


As for suspension, sadly the dumb ass yanks haven't learnt from Ze Germans and as such cast iron Leaf spring suspension is the standard fayre.

Again for comfort, they are able to drag their fat revolting ignorant a**es at least into the 20th century. But only just. Want 21st century refinement? That costs LOTS more.

And unfortunately for Naan, none of the Alfaslers will be available in pink as they would not be able to open up a showroom in the deep south as it may offend some of the redneckunclefuckingniggerhatingtobaccochewing natives. Or 'retards' as we call them in the civilised world.

I'm Harvey Price and licking Windows was my idea.

Last time i checked GM was'nt an italian company????? hence the Chrysler/Alfa mess at the start of this thread.

That X3 was at the centenary celebrations in milan last summer, i was amazed that no one kick it in!

No, but they have a lot of ties with Fiat group sharing engine blocks and designs and floorpans/chassis etc...

That X3 is a f**king disgrace! I mean, the stupid fugly heap is made by some Canadian parts company and then slapped with a few BMW badges. This dreadful example goes one further with the grill though...









It's like putting a Sienna Miller mask on Cheryl Fergison!
Hybrd
GM own fiat group...........
Francophile69
are you sure? I thought they owned 20%...with an option to buy more later..and Fiat in return owned a smaller share in GM..
NaanBread
GM did own a share in Fiat about 10 years...they parted company not many years later. It would make sense where the GM blocks came from.
