It was June 24, 110 years ago when the engineer Nicola Romeo became the owner of the ALFA factory, an acronym for “Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili”, joining his name to the brand. And it is a great celebration at the Arese Museum, which celebrates the anniversary with its reopening, but also with the presentation of the Giulia GTA (a limited production of 500 examples) and a busy calendar of events that will see the participation of clubs of alfisti and enthusiasts from all over Italy that on Sunday 28th will give life to the writing “110” during a flashmob. In addition, upon reservation, it is possible to access the backstage where the Collection area is set up, which houses a sanctuary of memorabilia and models never exhibited before. We warned you, then don’t say you didn’t know!
But if it’s undeniable that 110 years is a very long time, that’s not the only thing that makes it a special birthday. Each year of the Biscione is an indelible piece of history and a heritage to be jealously guarded and preserved.
We too at Garage Italia want to celebrate Alfa Romeo and its 110 candles in our own way with a project we are fond of.
We are talking about the Alfa Romeo 4C La Furiosa, presented at the Dubai Show at the beginning of the Garage Italia adventure. Do you remember it?
A model, the 4C, which has won acclaim left and right, characterized by sinuous shapes and an aggressive look, with an “Accursio red” livery, which fades from the black of the carbon roof to the pearly matt red of the car body. A result achieved by the perfect synergy between the Alfa Romeo Style Centre and the creativity of Garage Italia in terms of personalisation.
The Furiosa’s gritty DNA also emerges from details such as the carbon fibre weave that can be seen in the visible components such as the side mirrors, front light clusters and air intakes. Finally, that extra quid in terms of sportiness is undoubtedly given by the matt gold alloy wheels.
The interior is a blaze of red Alcantara covering the dashboard, the tunnel and the door panels. Black Alcantara for the seats with red contrasting edges, with the steering wheel in the same colour scheme.
So… Happy Birthday Alfa Romeo!
