Alfa Romeo
at the 2001 Frankfurt Motorshow
The main news on the Alfa Romeo stand was the release of the new 156 GTA and Sportwagon GTA. One of each of these cars were displayed on two angled, rotating glass platforms. The 147 was present in three and five-door forms, whilst the standard 156 and Sportwagon were also present. The range was completed (No GTV present) by a single 166 and Spider.

The GTA was presented in both versions. The windows were blacked out, preventing any view of the interior, rumoured to be significantly facelifted.

Wandering around the suppliers stands, it was interesting to note an ageing Alfa Romeo 6-cylinder engine being used to demonstrate an engine stand !
Elsewhere in the Motorshow there was a reproduction of the 1951 show. On the Alfa Romeo stand there was a 1900 berlina (below).
