Alfa Romeo 158 celebration may appeal to classic car insurance customers

Vintage and retro car insurance could be on the radar of motor enthusiasts this year, after Alfa Romeo launched a promotion of its various models - old and new.

The company has released a picture of the 158 edition alongside the latest Alfa vehicle to include the Cloverleaf motorsport-influenced badge.

In doing so, the automotive brand appears to be celebrating the best of its contemporary and classic offerings.

The promotion commemorates the 60th anniversary of a race in which Italian driver Giuseppe Farina finished in first position from behind the wheel of a 300bhp 158 race car.

Motorsport fans may already be aware that the 158 model was victorious in every Formula 1 race in which it took part in the 1950 session.

As such, it might represent the sort of vintage motor that gets drivers talking.

Meanwhile, buyers might be interested to learn that the new Giulietta edition is priced from £16,995 on-the-road.
