Power-slides, tire smoke and a nice glass of wine. These are just a few of the things that /DRIVE Journalist Chris Harris experienced when he recently went for a test drive in the new Alfa Romeo 4C. It’s light, nimble and is hopefully the beginning of a new dawn for Alfa Romeo. Check it out after the jump.

Vintage 911

It goes without saying that the content produced by the guys over at Petrolicious is some of the best anywhere on the internet. Their stories are insightful, their production quality superb, and their choices of automobiles always gets our attention. “I Drive New York” is their latest video and I must say that I loved every second. You see I grew up in NY, which meant I used to drive my classic cars all over the city. I’d run my ’68 Charger through Times Square and take my ’69 Daytona into the Village for dinner. People would look, gawk and make comments and to be honest, I loved every minute of it. This is one of those rare videos that proves once and for all, that where you live doesn’t matter, only owning a great car does.

1957 Alfa Romeo 1900 SSZ

So here’s the deal on this episode of Petrolicious – it’s in Italian, something that’s actually quite appropriate since we’re looking at a 1957 Alfa Romeo 1900 SSZ. Step one – watch the video in its entirety without understand a single word (unless you speak Italian). Step two – turn on the English subtitles on Youtube’s control panel. Step three – watch it again.

Enjoy.

Dodge Daytona

It’s no secret that Dodge has had a long standing relationship with the Fast and the Furious movie franchise.

The new film, Fast & Furious 6 is no exception and continues this tradition by incorporating some new Alfa Romeos into the action. Ralph Gilles, SRT CEO sits down for the cameras to tell us about the ins-and-outs of this relationship.

Alfa Romeo

In certain ways cars are like cigarettes. They’re addictive, enjoyable and at days end everyone has their favorite brand. Manuel Leon Minassian is an Alfa Romeo nut, so much so that he’s not actually sure how many he owns. Collecting for almost 22 years, Manuel has mostly Alfa’s with a few Mercedes, Audi’s and Ford’s mixed in for good measure. His favorite though? His 1972 Alfa Romeo Berlina that he custom tailored to his taste.

El Salvador Part 3 of 3 : LIVE AND LET DRIVE

Live and Let DRIVE: El Salvador

It doesn’t really matter what part of the world you’re in when it comes to cars. You see a car enthusiast is a car enthusiast, regardless of the place. This is something Alex Roy found out on his recent trip to El Salvador. Now granted, a country like El Salvador may not have the wealth of other nations, but that in no way makes their car guys any less devoted to the hobby. One interesting point that came of this trip was that there is seemingly no automotive class system to speak of. Honda’s, Subaru’s, Ford’s and Fiat’s coexist with no drama, which is something that can’t be said for the United States. Regardless though, click through for the video as I think you’ll get a kick out of Alex’s next segment.

Bad News, Alfa Romeo Fans: Most U.S. Intros Delayed

Posted in Alfa Romeo, auto industry, Car Buying, News by Kurt Ernst | September 16th, 2011 | Leave a Reply |

Blame a European economic situation that’s rapidly approaching critical mass, or blame Fiat boss Sergio Marchionne’s obsession with details. Whatever the case, Alfa Romeo has announced that the U.S. introduction of the Giulia midsize sedan and the Giulietta compact hatchback will be delayed another year, and won’t make their U.S. debut before 2014. That leaves Fiat dealers with nothing to sell except the Fiat 500 for the next two or three years. Read More…

Carlisle Import and Kit Nationals 2011

Triumph TR4 and TR3

Recently, I attended the Carlisle Import and Kit Nationals show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania. Held every May, this show features a vast array of meticulously maintained classic British, European and Japanese cars, exemplary examples of their more modern kin, as well as a beautiful collection of kit cars.  As far as sheer variety in makes, models and years, hands down, this show can’t be beat.

This has become something of an annual treat for me as I can think of few better ways to spend a weekend than by gazing at a gleaming sea of jaw-droppingly stunning automobiles, many of which I guarantee you won’t find at other shows. Plus, participation is open to anyone with an import or a kit car – all you have to do is register, make your car pretty and show up. It’s a great opportunity to display your cherished ride and meet other aficionados of your favorite marques.

I used to come down to show my Saab and hang out with the Saab contingent that makes it out every year. But even though I have a Subaru now, it’s just so much fun that I continue to make the trip to Carlisle (my WRX was parked over by the lone DeLorean, if you happened to be there). Volvo, BMW and Audi clubs also traditionally have a large showing so the weekend is packed with the cars you love, cars you haven’t seen before, your friends from the forums, barbeques – it’s a good time for everyone.  So, if you’re not too far out from Pennsylvania, I definitely recommend heading out there next May to check out the Carlisle Import and Kit Nationals. To tide you over, provided for your viewing pleasure are some of my favorite cars of the weekend. Enjoy!
