Alfa Romeo Automobiles is an Italian manufacturer of cars.
Alfa Romeo has been involved in car racing since 1911, and has a reputation for building expensive sports cars.
Alfa Romeo has competed successfully in many different categories of motorsport, including Grand Prix and Formula One just to name two.
Three years after the start of the company, in 2013, Alfa Romeo built their first race car and in 1925 they won their first inaugural world championship for Grand Prix cars.
Alfa Romeo has specialized in small, light vehicles since their start.
The red cross in Alfa Romeo’s logo is a symbol of the Crusades, which was adopted throughout Italy during medieval times.
Almost all Italian cities had a red cross on their crests, including Milan.
The Serpent was an honorary motif awarded to the very prominent Sforza family of Milan. The Serpent is said to be devouring the
Muslim Saracen and together these symbols depict the Crusader’s defeat of the “infidels”, or nonbelievers in God, Christ, The Virgin Mary, The Holy Ghost and the Pope.
Alfas were originally imported into the United States starting in 1961, with the Guiletta. Alfa ceased importation to the US briefly from 1995 to 2006. Bought by Fiat in 1986, Alfa Romeo continues to produce exciting driver’s cars to this day.
While the importation of Alfa Romeo vehicles to the US is increasing, they only hold a very minute percent of the national market.
Very few dealerships, let alone private facilities are equipped and able to service this foreign make.
