General info about “Alfa Romeo”

Posted on October 23, 2010

With just a glance, Alfa Romeo allows us to discover a world of passion and engagement:

*Its sports essence is a result of a commitment born from competition and how it’s applied to production models. The fundamentals of sports car handling, performance and safety are carried over from competition cars.

*Their elegance is an expression of Latin creativity and personal style, and design which while attractive, promotes emotions no other brand can create.

Each person loves to be surrounded by the things which communicate their status and character.

The relationships between people are defined by a non verbal code made up of symbols and signals which are immediately recognisable. This allows us to identify and express the values that form the basis of our existence.

A car is therefore a vehicle in the most complete meaning of the term, because thanks to the unique characteristics, it becomes an instrument of the personal expression of those who chose to drive it. Alfa Romeo, in each model, is messenger of:

Sportiness

Sportiness as dynamic energy, pure driving desire in the full control of performance.

Emotion

Emotion as harmony of expressiveness and conscious self confidence.

Style

Style as spirited beauty, Italian elegance with timeless sensuality.
