Watch a Kawasaki Undertake Alfa's New MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK


Read more

The arrival of the new limited edition Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK in the UK after its world premiere at last year's Paris Motor Show, sparked a promotional idea into the heads of the Italian brand; since the car is inspired and named after the Superbike championship, how about placing it together with a racing bike on the track?

Alfa Romeo called in precision driver Paul Swift and British Superbike rider Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker to perform a neat stunt at the Silverstone circuit. Swift drove the Alfa over a ramp tilting it on one side so Walker could ride under it in a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja British Superbike before speeding out to the other side.

New GS Hybrid "Heartbeat" Promo vs Older Alfa Campaign Shows Why Lexus Has it All Wrong


Read more

As a concept, placing potential buyers on the passenger seat and having a professional driver take them for a very quick spin around a course to see if they manage to keep their heart rate below 120 beats per minute to prove that that the Lexus GS450h is a dynamic and sporty hybrid model, sounds pretty interesting.

But then again, if you think about it, with the right driver and course, even a four-cylinder Toyota Yaris can satisfy a thrill seeker in the passenger seat.

And so while we started out writing about the new Lexus GS 450h promo from advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi in Milan, Italy, launched earlier this month, we were reminded of an older campaign from Drori Shlomi BBDO, for the market introduction of the Alfa Romeo MiTo in Israel in 2010.

Read more

Alfa Romeo Lays Out Product Plans Until 2014, Readying a New RWD Saloon with a V6 Engine


Read more

Out of all the mainstream brands included in the Fiat Group and Chrysler LLC portfolio, Alfa Romeo has the most potential to achieve a global reach and bring in some much needed cash and sales. The Italian company's boss Sergio Marchionne is well aware of this and that's one of the reasons he doesn't want to sell Alfa Romeo to Volkswagen, despite Ferdinand Piechs' persistent efforts.

However, one of the most pressing problems with Alfa Romeo is the constant delays, be that for the successors to models like the 159 series or the company's long-awaited return to the U.S. market.

Suffice it to say, there's no way of being sure that the Fiat Group has managed to sort out the time schedule-related problems when it comes to Alfa Romeo. Nevertheless, at a recent event for investors, the Fiat Group introduced an updated plan for the Milanese brand, which it hopes will revitalize Alfa Romeo through the presentation of new models.
