Alfa Preview

The UK's Times Online reviewed the latest iteration of the Alfa Spider, and they liked what they saw. Bonus: includes a comparison with the '67 model. As expected, 40 years of engineering progress definitely show. This, by the way, is the type scheduled to appear here in 3 years.

Unfortunately it appears Alfa will be taking a big risk with these models by pricing them with their German and Japanese competition. The quality must be extremely good (for an Alfa, spectacular) otherwise they'll experience the same thing the last time they tried this: a boom in early sales to Alfisti, rapidly trailing off when the limitations of the type become apparent.

We'll see!
