Few have dared to modify the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione partly because it's such a rare find and partly because it's such a masterful piece of art. Wheelsandmore however, quite ambitiously, have taken up the challenge to spice things up. But even they are cautious about it liking the “Senza-Cromo” (that's how they called their project) to “delicate surgery.” The power is up, the suspension is new and the wheels are big – an ordinary formula for an extraordinary car. Applicable on the A

Touring Superleggera has announced the staggering Disco Volante Concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It is inspired by an old Alfa Romeo and features two seats and powerful V8 engine at the front.
The Disco Volante shares a lot of details from 8C Competizione like the engine, suspension and some other elements.
The mighty 4.7 liter V8 delivers 450PS (331 kW) and 470Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to an electronically controlled 6-speed sequential gearbox with paddle-shifters on the steering wheel. All
That gorgeous looking thing, adorning the halls of the Geneva Motor Show hides an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione engine inside. It even has an 8C chassis. And despite that it has all the necessary looks to be an Alfa, it isn't. Say hello to the Carrozzeria Touring Disco Volante 2012 – a tribute to the 1900 C52 Alfa Romeo concept from the fifties. It too was made with the help of the same company and now it's back in a different form. Carrozzeria Touring was (and still is) all about lightness and agility - “supperle
Alfa Romeo might not have much cars to show on the 2012 Geneva Auto Show (they have only two production vehicles at the moment) but they are betting on technology and choice. There will be four Giulietta models and three Mitto cars taking the stand. Some of them will feature the Fiat group 0.9 TwinAir Turbo “International engine of the year 2011”, many will be coupled with the Alfa TCT (double clutched transmission) and will also feature Distinctive and Quadrifoglio Verde trim levels.
Attenders at this month's Qatar Motor Show are in for a treat because a Pininfarina Alfa will be taking part as an exhibition. It is the truly delightful Alfa 2uettottanta concept – a familiar face not only because it has been around for a while (barer of the 2010 Car Design of the Year Award) but also because it is
A beautiful car needs a powerful engine, that’s why the Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris take the stunning Brera and put a supercharger kit under the hood. Furthermore, the stylish vehicle received a nice exterior package.
The supercharger kit includes a compressor, an intercooler, special piping, an ECU re-map and new full sport exhaust system including a 200 cell catalytic converter. The result is very nice – additional 98PS (72 kW) and 120Nm (89 lb-ft), so the total power of the supercharg
Alfa Romeo has announced their new twin dry clutch semi-automatic transmission called “Alfa TCT”. The gearbox is now available to order on the five-door Alfa Giulietta hatchback. This transmission can be opted with shift paddles behind the steering wheel.
Available with either the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170BHP petrol or the 2.0 JTDM-2 170BHP diesel engine, the ALFA TCT range increases the Giulietta’s appeal in both the fleet and consumer sectors.

Alfa Romeo 4C Concept was firstly introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and now the manufacturer has brought it in Frankfurt.
Actually, the model 4C will hit the US market somewhere in 2013, but Alfa Romeo didn’t release any further information.
The engine is the well-known 1750 TBi petrol engine delivering 200PS (147 kW). The vehicle also boasts extremely low weight of around 850kg, which means power-to-weight ratio lower than 4kg/hp.
The results are thanks to a superbly light chassis supporting a bo

4C Concept has a total weight of 850 kilos and a power unit with more than 200BHP, which means less than 4kg per HP, not bad at all.
The Alfa 4C Concept uses technology and materials derived from the 8C Competizione – carbon, aluminium, rear-wheel drive – and technology from Alfa Romeo
