The storied Italian performance brand, Alfa Romeo, just turned 110. To mark the occasion, fans of the brand, known as “Alfisti” paraded modern and classic vehicles around the track at the Alfa Romeo Museum, which reopened for the special event following all Coronavirus safety guidelines.
Located in Arese, on the outskirts of Milan, the Alfa Romeo Museum, curated by Lorenzo Ardezio, is home to more than 200 historical vehicles and Alfa’s Documentation Center, where they have preserved production and historical notes on the vehicles dating back to its founding on June 24, 1910 in Milan, Italy.
Alfa Romeo used the anniversary celebration to also celebrate the brand’s success here in the US with their Stelvio and Giulia models. In fact, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is arguably the fastest five-passenger SUV in its class in the United States, having achieved a world-record Nürburgring lap time of 7 minutes and 51.7 seconds when it launched back in 2017. And, for 2020, Alfa has introduced a slew of new enhancements to their four-door compact luxury sports sedan, the outstanding Giulia. So, pop a bottle of Champagne and toast to Alfa sometime this week!
