Alfa Romeo Returns to North America Starting at $55k!

Alfa Romeo

North American fans of the luxurious Alfa Romeo badge may begin to jump up and down all around you…do not be alarmed. After a long hiatus, the Alfa Romeo brand will now be available stateside with a shockingly lowered starting price of around $55k. That makes the brand attainable both geographically and economically for an entirely new market.

The starting price of the next-gen, the Alfa Romeo 4C,  is the truly surprising aspect of this news. For less than a new Audi, one can own an Alfa Romeo. This will all be made possible through a new network of dealerships strategically located throughout the United States and Canada. The end result will be an astounding 82 Alfa Romeo dealers over 33 states. Those wielding the largest concentration are not difficult to guess, they will be California, Florida and Texas. Canada will only get 4 dealerships…because…eh, it is Canada and most of them end up in Florida and California anyways. read more

It is from a long line of similar hyperbeasts, and made a rare appearance at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, where the video below was captured.
