Three more models to follow Alfa 8C Comptezione to America in 2009

A month after announcing that Alfa Romeo would finally return to the US market next year with the 8C Competizione, more information about further products is now coming out. Maserati North America will be acting as the US distributor for the Italian brand when three more models join the lineup in 2009. The gorgeous 8C will have very limited availability with only the final 99 samples of a 500 car production coming to the US at a steep $200,000.

The other models will be somewhat more accessible probably in BMW territory. The three car lineup will be topped by the 159 sport sedan in front and all wheel drive configurations. Joining the 159 will be the Brera coupe and the open top Spider. The Spider uses the Brera platform with a shorter wheelbase. Existing Maserati dealers will be the first to get Alfa franchises.

Not that being a Spider fan makes me biased, but that's a cool picture! ;)

Best regards,

There are numerous threads on this but I'll be lazy and reply to this one. I read today that Fiat was considering buying Jaguar and LR for access to their technology (mainly for Alfa). They also could have used Jaguar and LR dealers in the US for Alfas.

However, they didn't feel they could run the companies successfully. Except Tata seems to be leading the group of buyers for Jaguar and LR. Fiat is advising Tata on the bid and has a technology sharing agreement with them. So they may get parts of the deal anyways.
