Seen the same C43 outside Lush Lounge a couple of days back.It really has some character and looks really appealing.And those wheels are to die for.

Default Alfa Romeo

166, Silver Grey.

Whose is it? The person sitting inside looked a bit like our new Fiat chief. The driver was doing a very careful speed. Either he was scared of messing up the car or knowing Fiat's reputation with procuring spare parts was being extra careful. Either ways, car was stately, elegant and beautiful too. Made my day.

Had seen a 166 Silver Gray at Santacruz about two years back. Never seen it again. The car looks decent.

Mmmmmm.......saw an Alfa Romeo 166 here on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon road, a 3.0 litre V6. Checked out the site - the colour is Nuvola Blue, which actually seemed a light green shade on the car. Engine pumps out 220 horses. Looked very well kept. The back end looks gorgeous, and with those twin exhausts.....boy!

And the regn no:, of course is the 'exotic village' HR 18 ....

Nice spotting SRK. While on a visit to Fiat factory in Ranjangaon, I snapped a 166 Super and it is the same one that you have in the pictures above with a different registration. IIRC its a 3.0L V6 engine.

The Fiat bosses car was submerged in water for 3 days at the Fiat factory in Kurla and then restored back to pristine condition by the Fiat factory staff in Kurla itself.

See pictures here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...aon-fccci.html (Fiat Factory visit to Ranjangaon - FCCCI)
