Is the visit got something to do with the Ranjangaon plant or is this some political meet? Instead of getting down an Alfa Romeo, shouldn't they just hire out a car for him?

Yes, it's beautiful alright. It's basically the Brera concept, which was voted the most beautiful car in the world. And this is a direct-injection engine, mind you.

yup that is the new 159 saloon which shares its face,interiors and probably the platform with the alfa brera.This one has the 160 bhp 1.9 JTS petrol engine.



probably he should test the car's fuel efficiency while at it and see if the alfa is good enough for india
