Almost 2 decades into its ownership by Fiat, the near future has rarely looked as bright since it does today with this Italian institution. Inside a world filled with homogeneous cars Alfa Romeo continues to tread its own path, creating a selection of sporting saloons and coupes that epitomise Cuore; heart. They've even managed to create that apparent oxymoron, an outdoor diesel engine family offered over the entire range. New for 2005 may be the GT, a coupe variant in line with the highly-acclaimed 156.

The organization has additionally shown a brand new sports vehicle which, it is rumoured, can make it into production like a flagship for that brand. This is actually the 8c Competizione, designed and made by the Alfa Romeo style centre in Arese, and created being an icon of the trademark.

Its name is evocative of Alfa's great motor sport tradition, and also the styling from the close-coupled two-seater exudes power and suggests driver enjoyment. Having finally shrugged off its track record of poor quality. Alfa Romeo is on the roll.
