Alfa Romeo

ALFA (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) was founded in 1910. The brand originated from the French Darracq. Nicola Romeo joined the company in 1915 and took over the business. He added his own name to the brand name in 1920; the Torpedo 20-30 HP was the first Alfa Romeo.

Alfa Romeo car racing

Alfa Romeo established a great reputation in motorsport after the First World War. The team was led by Enzo Ferrari. Alfa Romeo has always been active in racing and even in Formula 1. Even before the crisis years, Alfa Romeo was dependent on state aid and in 1933 the exclusive car manufacturer was incorporated by the Italian government. The Alfasud was developed in the late 1960s as an employment project in southern Italy. In 1986 Fiat Alfa Romeo took over from the state. In the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, Alfa Romeo produced the sporty mid-sized cars Giulia, Giulietta and Alfetta, with the famous four-cylinder engine with two double overhead camshafts, which Alfa Romeo continued to use until the 1990s.
