Alfa Romeo was established in Milan in 1910 although its origins can be traced back a few years before. Initially the company was known as A.L.F.A and produced mechanical parts for the military, however, following the end of World War 1 the company began to produce cars and became Alfa Romeo in 1920.
Alfa Romeo began producing cars of the Italian racing circuit and had much success with Enzo Ferrari as the driver. It produced luxury cars throughout the 1930s and, like with many automobile manufacturers at the time, was seconded into military efforts during World War 2.
After the war, however, Alfa Romeo returned to the racing circuit and an Alfa Romeo 158 Alfretta won the inaugural Formula 1 championship in 1950.
The immediate post-war era saw Alfa Romeo achieve success in the domestic and international automobile market. Such classic and iconic vehicles as the Giulia SS which was revealed in 1959 as a two-door sports coupe. A larger engine version was also released in 1963.
The Giulia name was also used by Alfa Romeo on a series of executive sedans which were produced between 1962 and 1972. The Giulia range of sedans are seen to be classics in the Alfa Romeo range for their power and performance. Giulia also came in Spider and Sprint coupe editions as well as a Sprint Speciale edition which gave an increased sports prestige to the model.
A second Giulia range followed due to the original's success. The second series had 1.3 and a 1.6 litre versions and were an update to the original. The success of the Giulia model range for the heritage of Alfa Romeo has seen an updated version planned for a 2015 release.
It was the 1960s, however, that saw a golden era for Alfa Romeo. In addition to the Giulia the 2600 was a flagship of the Alfa Romeo range. The six-cylinder luxury car came in a sedan, coupe and a convertible. It was the 2600 touring version that gained the most attention, the Sprint, as it was also known, was feted for its luxury and its stability. The flagship 2600 models did not have the success in the 1960s that Alfa Romeo wanted but today they are judged as classics for their design and performance.
Many older Alfa Romeo models were updated in the 1960s such as with the GT 1300 Junior which was a revamp to the Giulia 1300 and the Giulia TZ which was a revamp to the Giulietta SZ.
Alfa Romeo has had success in each post war decade and there have been many iconic vehicles produced. The 1970s for instance is best known for the Montreal concept car that was a 2+2 sports coupe. The V8 engine and fuel injection system made it a popular and powerful sports car for the time.
Alfa Romeo has also produced a range of other vehicles, from hatchbacks to saloon cars. The Alfa Romeo 75 is a great example of the diversity of Alfa Romeo as a car producer. Made to celebrate Alfa Romeo's 75th anniversary in 1985 it was designed as an executive sedan that had many unique design features and a box look that proved very popular and was a great commercial success. Successful executive cars continued into the 1990s such as with the 155 and 166.
Alfa Romeo continued its tradition as a sports car manufacturerwith the release of the GT in 2003. The Alfa Romeo GT was created as a powerful and luxury coupe and was praised for its quality looks. The GT was popular across Europe and many special editions were made such as the Special Edition for the UK market and the Run Out Edition for the Dutch market.
Alfa Romeo continues to produces quality sports and executive cars today and shows no signs of slowing down in its second century.
