MOST RECENT

Turbo i.e. is a little red tag you can find on some of the grilles of sporty versions of Fiat group cars from the mid 80s - mid 90s decade. It was often pairing the Scorpio logo on wheel caps to celebrate #abarth #heritage. Another pill of icons in italian car design by italian designer #guidobottazzo So interesting yet to notice how those simple yet boxy design lines seemed out of date ten years ago. Until you realize that most of today's grilles have become horizontal again and they link with headlights the same way they used to thirty years ago.
Much respect and admiration for the inspiring design work of #giorgettogiugiaro #giugiarodesign for having once again marked design principles to the future generations of designers. Try to sketch the Uno Turbo of the '85 year with correct proportions and I dare you to get it right easily.
Some designers are masters of their crafts. Giugiaro is one of them. Soon my homage to the italian designer.

Nothing new for the old gal, she blew a brand new tyre the other day. Got put on 40mm springs yesterday but time to look for smaller wheels for the fake lows ⬇️⬇️

Lancias had previously been sold in the U.S. though the late 60s, through Hoffman Motors in the 1950s and Lancia and Fiat later, but the 1975 launch of the #Beta was the first real attempt to mass-market the brand in North America.
-
Ultimately, Lancia’s U.S. adventure didn’t work out thanks to a combination of a high price, unfamiliarity, quality issues, and a patchy dealer network. Only 1,011 cars were sold that first year and U.S. sales peaked at 5,500 in 1977, sliding back to 1,600 cars in 1979. It was around this time that quality issues began to seriously erode Fiat’s reputation with American consumers, and these modern #Lancias were inextricably linked to Fiat.
-
One way of reinvigorating sales was to bring in a fancier, sportier Beta despite the shortcomings of the by-then-withdrawn mid-engined Beta Scorpion (which had been sold in 1976 and 1977 only). The Beta Spyder, styled by #Pininfarina but actually constructed at #Zagato (sort of, the cars went back and forth between Lancia and Zagato during assembly) had been introduced in 1975 in Europe and came to the U.S. in 1979 as the #BetaZagato.
-
The Spyder/Zagato was basically a Beta coupe with a new roof perfect for the “safety regs” era, with a big rollover bar integral to the design, a soft top out back and a targa hatch up front. From the A-pillar forward it was a standard Beta, front-drive with a sideways fiat twin-cam and five speeds. The Beta was an excellent design, if one let down by quality control. -
Earlier Euro versions had the 1600 and 1800 twin cams, but because the North American model only arrived in 1979, it came only with the 2-liter - and it had an optional Automatic.
-
The Zagato was quite nice - a good driver if more of a tourer than an out-and-out sports car, but it was also pricey - just under $11K in 1979, nearly Coupe DeVille territory; so it didn’t really help sales, which were so poor that Lancia imported no cars at all in 1980, selling leftover ’79s.
-
The coupe and Zagato returned in 1981 with updates and new trims - and improved quality - and carried on for another two years before Fiat withdrew from North America entirely in January, 1983.

Alfa Romeo Spider (Typ-939)
.
The Alfa Romeo Brera and the Alfa Romeo Spider (Type 939) are two sports cars manufactured by Alfa Romeo respectively between 2005-2010 and 2006-2010. The Brera is a 2+2 coupé, while the Spider is its roadster version. Both models were built by Pininfarina.
.
12,488 units of the Spider and 21,786 units of the Brera were built. Production of both models ended in late 2010.
.

.
Perhaps more interesting than the car itself, was the underpinning architecture, on developed and paid for by General Motors, the GM / FIAT Prermium platfom. Oddly, no GM production cars ever used it. It is also reported to have added 100kg to the mass of the FIAT group cars that used it owing to unutilised technical features.
.
In the end of the relationship, FIAT forced GM to pay $2.0 billion in 2005, not to buy the company.

From the series "Rome 2010, the Marta birthday". Sub series, Roman law enforcement.
My previous post was the Carabinieri and now I share a Polizia photo. The Carabinieri have the stile and elegance of an Alfa Romeu. Here's a Fiat Stilo from the Polizia. And a non staged Police pose. Always alert to his surrounding, protecting the others.
Around Rome, near by the Vatican.
Rome, a city to return!
