What's Your Favorite Non-Italian Italian Car?

The reveal of the Volkswagen Scirocco Studie R, celebrating non-violent Italo-Germanic alliances, is a reminder Italian designers and companies have almost made more cars via alliance than through domestic design and production. So what's your favorite non-Italian Italian car?

There are a lot of choices. There's the Italian-American Chrysler TC by Maserati. What about the German-Italian Volkswagen Karman Ghia or Polish-Italian Polski Fiat? There are almost too many choices.

Maybe it's because we've been on a Volvo kick lately or because we felt bad about putting the Volvo 262C Bertone on the Turkey list, but the Volvo 780 Coupe is perhaps our favorite Sweedish-Italian meatball. There's something about combining Swedish safety and Italian sexy we find appealing. Safexy? Sexty? Either way, it's gold.
