Alfo Romeo must be one of the team sponsors
..and alfa is owned by fiat.Le Pirate said:just curious...i had never heard of a connection between them. i know ducati and fiat teamed up for the monster ed. panda.
As is Ferrari, and if you look at the sponsor packages for both teams (Marlboro, Bridgestone, Shell, etc) you'll find them strikingly similar.derby said:..and alfa is owned by fiat.
this is just a co-marketing relationship. italian companies taking advantage of each other's global awareness.

b) the drooling might be because of the hot model
c) hasn't alfa been "coming to the US" for 4 or 5 years now...i keep hearing about it, but they've never made the jump into the US market
Info like this is the reason I love the diversity of this place. We have people in just about every profession here!Randimus Maximus said:a) +1
C) as a car company, would you be overanxious to jump into this market? The market has been relatively flat for the last 3 years or so @ ~17million new units per year. Look at the number of additional makes, models and segments that have been introduced here in the States over the last few years, and I can understand their apprehension.
