Imagine Italian operas as sung by "Men at Work", "INXS", Kylie Minogue (at least if they design a car like her, it will have cute rear end !)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What has come over Fiat? Why are they hell bent on committing suicide????? Imagine a car that looks as racy, mean and powerful as the Alfa and when you start to drive it...NOTHING HAPPENS! No excitement, no fun.....
Good looking car but with no soul...reminds me of Ashwariya Rai! Maybe Fiat can gift her one - call it Ash 159 or something

Consequently, I read somewhere that future engines will use GM blocks but Alfa designed heads - still - bit like Kylies bottom mated to Pavarotti's chest
