Alfa Romeo GT

Alfa Romeo GT is a sports car produced by the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo between 2004 and 2010. The GT was introduced in March 2003 Geneva Motor Show and it came for sale in Italian markets January 2004.

Like the 147, the GT was based on the platform of Alfa’s outgoing mid-size 156 estate (Sportwagon in this case) car, with the coupé body styled by Bertone.[4] Most mechanicals are taken directly from the 156/147 using the same double wishbone front suspension and multilink rear setup as those two cars. The interior is based heavily on that of the smaller hatchback 147 and utilises many common parts. The GT utilises the same dash layout and functions as well as having a very similar electrical system. The engine range includes 2.0 petrol engine, a 1.9 MultiJet turbodiesel, and a top-of-the-range 3.2 V6 petrol. Read more of this post

Alfa Romeo 159

The 159 was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro in collaboration with the Alfa Centro Stile. The nose features a traditional Alfa Romeo V-shaped grille and bonnet, and cylindrical head light clusters. A high waistline broadens until it reaches the rear “C” pillar. The interior also features styling treatments familiar from earlier cars, including the 156, such as deeply recessed instruments which are angled towards the driver. However, the 159 is larger than its predecessor at 4660 millimetres (183.4 in) long (some 225 mm (8.9 in) longer than the Alfa 156), 1828 mm (71.9 in) wide and 1417 mm (55.7 in) high.
