Alfa Romeo left our market back in 1995 and mostly every car obsessed Canadian has felt something lacking in their lives ever since.
Alfa’s are traditionally quirky cars that never start, always break down and make you want to bludgeon it with a bat by the end of the day. BUT, they are such amazing high spirited cars, that most are willing to put up with all the problems. Afterall, a true petrol head doesn’t let something silly like reliability affect their car buying decisions, that would be way too sensible.
On top of that, they are achingly pretty, with the prettiest being the 8C you see pictured above.
So, when will we be able to find ourselves at a local Alfa dealer? Find out after the jump.
The CEO of Fiat, Sergio Marchionne said Alfa’s will be back in North America in 2012 as he made the announcement to a crowd in Toronto for an earthquake fundraiser.
“I’m a lot more confident now that Alfa Romeo will reconstitute a product offering that is acceptable globally, and more in particular in the United States and Canada” said Marchionne.
We really need to be grateful for Marchionne. Not only is he bringing Alfa Romeo back, but he’s also bringing Fiats to our shores and lending a much needed hand to Chrylser.
Alfa’s four year plan is expected to be revealed in April where more details are expected to be released.
