Alfa Romeo Has A Crazy Idea And Sticks The 4C's Heart In The Giulietta

It's lean times at Alfa Romeo, what with being down to selling a couple of aging hatchbacks and the very special 4C sports car. That means there's parts sharing going on between the three. Which is great if you're in Europe and want a Giulietta with a lot of turbo boost. » 2/27/14 10:00pm 2/27/14 10:00pm

BMW, Fiat Join Forces, Create Next-Gen Mini Platform

BMW and Fiat have signed a memorandum of understanding to co-develop the next-generation platform underpinning three different small cars — the Mini, the Alfa Romeo Mi.To, and the Fiat Grande Punto (which is desperately in need of help based on our experience).

Alfa Romeo Mi.To Meets 8C Competizione In Photo Studio, Wants Some…

Alfa Romeo Mi.To Shows Us Its Details

We just told you about the new Alfa Mi.To this morning, and already we've got close up footage of its cute little Italian details. While we would rather have a more traditional name for the car, we think Alfa's got a winner here with it's 8C Competizione-inspired styling in a Mini Cooper-fighting package.

Alfa Romeo Mi.To: A Furiosa Mini-Fighter From Italy

After the success of BMW's Mini Cooper ("you got them to pay what for that?") many companies have been anxious to offer their own alternatives to the pseudo-British hatch. Alfa Romeo is now one of the first to get in with the decidedly un-retro Mi.To., which looks more like an 8C Competizione than any hatch historically… » 3/14/08 9:20am 3/14/08 9:20am
