The 2016 Alfa Romeo comes from a strong upsurge of benevolence from the Alfa Romeo brand. The brand has kept a lot of fans over the years as drivers and car enthusiasts have enjoyed the excellence that is its brio and handling. Fans have kept the flame for the Italian brand alive; even though the automaker’s factory has still done quite little in order to keep those flames blazing. However, all is about to change with this 2016 model.
The 2016 Alfa Romeo is About to Shake Things Up
Under the hood of the 2016 Alfa Romeo is a brand new engine which is apparently inspired by the V8 engines found within the cars of the Italian automaker’s sister company Ferrari. The 2016 model is now powered by a 2.9-liter V6 of which has twin turbos and is able to deliver 503bhp and 443lb-ft of torque. If those figures won’t tell you that this automobile has already got a lot of things going on right off the bat, then you might already be missing out.
This kind of power is then mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission towards the rear wheels through a torque-vectoring module. Which can make you think if its chassis is good enough to support all of this, and for that, it is.
The chassis is that of a modular design so you would be able to see more of it other models and not just the 2016 model of the Alfa Romeo in the future. Its body panels are primarily made out of aluminum. As for the bonnet, it is made out of carbon fiber. Therefore, with these materials, you can tell that the car is light and that the automaker is serious about thinning it out.
Because of the new powerful engine along with a new modular chassis is a recipe for pure bliss. For fans of the Alfa Romeo brand, this is a big, happy sigh as the car manufacturer may have extinguished doubts lingering within the minds of their consumers and enthusiasts. When it comes to handling, the automobile really delivers in this department. It gives out a great combination of firm body control, delicate control, and a boost in confidence. These properties mean that you can throw the vehicle around with much glee in your heart.
Overall, the 2016 Alfa Romeo makes for a grand comeback for the Italian brand. This is a sports saloon that truly deserves every letter in its name. It gives off an absolute delight from its exteriors, to its interiors, and towards its overall driving experience.
