When Alfa built the original flying saucer — the Disco Volante — in 1952, they were on top of the world. Now there's a new Disco Volante — and while completely different from the original, it's just as gorgeous.
Jeremy Clarkson has famously contended that you cannot be a true "petrolhead" until you've owned an Alfa. For those of us in America, this presents an issue as old Alfas are increasingly few and far between.

Dodge will resurrect the Dart name for its new Alfa Romeo-based compact car, set to debut at next month's Detroit Auto Show. The Dart will be the first Alfa Romeo-based Chrysler production car introduced in the United States. Arrivederci Caliber!
When the Alfa Romeo brand returns to the U.S. somewhere around 2013, it'll be a version of the Giulietta hatch leading the way. Naturally, before they get here, they'll have to stand up to Michigan highways.
The number 33 appears, unexplained, on the side of Rolling Rock beer bottles. It's also the name of both Alfa's gorgeous 33 Stradale and today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe 33 Sportwagon. The latter can better the Stradale in carrying home cases of Latrobe's finest, but should it also carry a lower price?
What are these models arguing about? Probably the heat. Did I mention it was about 375 degrees F in that hall? It was so hot the models were getting cranky. But still, the Alfa Romeo 4C concept looked promising, even in its new silver-hued skin.
This Sunday will mark the 75th anniversary of the Hungarian Grand Prix, an event held since…1986. Fifty years before Formula One came to the Hungaroring, there was a Grand Prix race in downtown Budapest with 100,000 people in attendance. The Silver Arrows came. Scuderia Ferrari came. Three-quarters of a century later,…
Toiling away will never be like flogging a classic GT at 11/10ths, but a line of seats inspired by classic sports cars' butt-buckets may make doing that presentation just a bit less sucky.
Connoisseurs of vintage Top Gear clips will know that parallel parking a big, mid-engined Italian supercar—say, a Lamborghini Countach—is a chore.

After being somewhat unappreciated in the collector car world for decades Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciales have skyrocketed in value over the past few years. One look at this beautiful red example currently on Ebay and it isn't hard to see why.
If like us, you'd lost track/hope/interest in exactly how Alfa Romeo would return to the United States, here's a handy graphic version. The 4C arrives in 2012, then we get some Giulietta and...a crossover SUV. How Italian.
Had the Lamborghini Miura not been invented, Franco Scaglione’s Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale from 1967 would be the sexiest car ever built. Here, in this 5-photo series, we attempt to find an angle on it that sucks. Sadly, the Alfa is semi-obscured by a tarp and a McLaren F1 on the first photo. In our search for design…
