Alfa Romeo is a name synonymous with top-notch Italian car manufacturing. Many of its cars have achieved iconic status, becoming popular in both the automotive industry and global pop culture. But of all the Alfa Romeo cars ever produced, one stands out as an icon everybody can recognize: The Spider.
This is a car that first took center stage for many car fans when the movie "The Graduate" came out, with Dustin Hoffman driving it into history as one of the most popular Alfas ever made. Even today, used Spiders earn a great deal of respect from car fans, being collected all over the globe as prized pieces of art. Their classic lines, sexy figure, and allure to car fans everywhere have changed little since the Spider was born in 1966.
And like the Spider, other models Alfa has produced, like the 147, and 156, are also eyed by fans and car collectors everywhere. The Alfa Romeo 147 may look like a typical hatch upon first glance, but like many works of art, the beauty slowly comes out as one looks at it more. It is a sleek and modern looking automobile, one that does not completely show topnotch engineering until it is fired up. Praised all over the world for its superb handling, the 147 is a car any Alfa fan can appreciate.
The Alfa Romeo 156 started out as an unassuming compact executive car. But over the years, it has gone to many aesthetic and engineering changes, turning it into a very popular choice for Alfa fans. Combining retro and modern on the outside, and traditional Italian sports car stylings on the inside, the 156 is a choice for the sophisticated Alfa Romeo fan who wants to let out an inner craving for speed every once in a while.
