Alfa-Romeo Engines

Alfa-Romeo was started in Italy and was known for auto racing and high-end luxury cars. The Alfa Romeo is one of the first cars to be produced was a dual overhead cam (DOHC) engine. A major setback for the company had to retool the factory for military benefit. They built aircraft engines, munitions and other hardware that was needed at the time. Because of the government contract the factory had to be enlarged. Once the war was over and the contract expired Alfa Romeo almost went out of business.

After Alfa-Romeo got back into racing, they soon became the car to beat in Grand Prix events. The 158 Alfetta won the first Formula One Championship back in 1950. In 1952 Alfa-Romeo began working on its first front-wheel drive automobile. That did not go into production for a few more years. By the 70’s the automakers was in trouble again and this time Fiat stepped in. They began to build Alfas and Lancias into the 1990 era developing a new car, the 147 GTA and other high performance vehicles.

In 2005 more changes came about when Fiat bought back Maserati from Ferrari and formed four new automobile companies by 2007. They planned to build sports cars and luxury cars combining the two platforms. This division would share the drivetrain including the framing and would offer both makes in the dealerships. The market Alfa was competing in was tough, Honda , Mitsubishi and Toyota were a dominating force.

Alfa-Romeo has still seen a decline in sales. The parent company Fiat had a target of 300,000 units to be sold globally for the year 2010 but only delivered 112,000. This was a major setback but sales did improve for the year 2011 with sales of 130,000 units. Fiat still has a target of 500,000 units to be sold by the year 2014 which does include the US market and a prediction of 85,000 vehicles for North America.
