Alfa Romeo Reviews
Alfa Romeo started out as Anonima Lombardo Fabbrica Automobili (ALFA) in 1910 in a factory bought from Darracq was taken over by Nicolo Romeo in 1915. Its most successful era was the 1930s, when Alfa Romeos were among the best cars money could buy.
Post-WW2 survival drove the company downmarket, but the spirit remained with fine ranges of coupés and spiders to complement the saloons. Sadly that wasn’t enough and when financial losses piled too high in the '80s, Fiat headed off a bid from Ford to take control in 1987. These days, Alfa Romeo retains much of its character, using shared components with Fiat and - formerly - General Motors.
