Alfa Romeo

alfa-romeo

One of Italy's most celebrated auto makers, Alfa Romeo was initially named after an acronym for the Lombard Automobile Factory, Public Company, in 1910. The company gained the second half of its current name in 1920 when it began producing cars under the guidance of Neoplitan investor Nicolo Romeo. Alfa Romeo's legendary motorsports history goes back to the 1911 Targa Florio and continues to this day, with the Alfa brand having graced some of the most storied race cars of all time, including the 158 Alfetta which Giuseppe Farina drove to win the inaugral Formula One championship. Owned by the Fiat group since 1986, Alfa Romeo continues to produce sporty enthusiast cars with beautiful, Italianate designs. Though its reputation in the US is based largely on the Spider two-seat roadster, which Dustin Hoffman drove in The Graduate, Alfa Romeo is also known worldwide for building fun-to-drive, soulful sedans and hatchbacks.
