Alfa Romeo: Automotive Art

Updated on April 4, 2014

Alfa Romeo: Classic and Modern Alfas

Alfa Romeo have made some of the most beautiful cars over the years and still make some very fine cars today. The company has been around since 1910 and have been involved in motor racing since 1911. They are now part of the Fiat group (including other car companies: Lancia, Maserati and Ferrari) since 1986, but originally the company was called A.L.F.A. (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili or in English: Lombard Automobile Factory, Public Company)

Alfa Romeo has been involved in motorsport since the shorty after the company was formed, as a constructor and an engine supplier, but most famously, in 1929 Alfa Romeo employee, Enzo Ferrari founded the Scuderia Ferrari racing team for Alfa Romeo, later forming his own independent team in 1939.

Here is a selection of Alfa Romeo articles and photographs on Squidoo: Alfa Romeo Spiders, GTVs, 156, 159, 8C, Mito etc...

If you have created an article about Alfas of any sort, please add it here. Classic Alfa Romeos or brand new ones expensive or inexpensive all are welcome. We have articles about classic alfa spiders and classic cars in general so far.

There have been many classic Alfa Romeos over the years, some designed by Alfa Romeo, some by the likes of Pininfarina and even when Alfa became part of the Fiat group (along with Lancia, Ferrari and Maserati) the cars retained much of the passion and style. Even small Alfa Romeo engines sound special. The famous boxer engines from the Alfasuds, glorious sounding V6s from GTVs and the twin-spark 4 cylinder engines in many modern Alfas are all classics in their own right.

Here are a few books featuring various classic Alfa Romeos:
