Lancia Thema 8.32: the most Italian performance saloon

  Lancia Thema 8.32: the most Italian performance saloon As Rowan Atkinson's Lancia Thema 8.32 heads to auction, we pen a love letter to the ultimate Q-car Instead, let us celebrate the fact that Lancia – the self-proclaimed ‘Most Italian Car’ company – had the vision to build it.

An Alfa Romeo spokesman described the claims as speculation, but didn’t rule out the possibility of a sports car in the future. I forgot just how stunning the 8C was. They should just put that body back into production on a lengthened 4C chassis with the V 6 engine .

The Alfa Romeo 6 C name was used on road, race, and sports cars produced between 1927 and 1954 by Alfa Romeo ; the " 6 C " name refers to six cylinders of the car 's straight- six engine . Bodies for these cars were made by coachbuilders such as James Young, Zagato, Touring, Castagna, and Pininfarina.

The 8C was the last time Alfa attempted a supercar - the Ferrari V8-engined model was limited to 500 units globally © Autocar The 8C was the last time Alfa attempted a supercar - the Ferrari V8-engined model was limited to 500 units globally

The Alfa Romeo 6C - a V6-engined rival to the Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 911 - is due to arrive in early 2020 following a motor show debut in the next 24 months, says tuning company Pogea Racing. 

Following in the footsteps of the 8C, the 6C will be named after the number of cylinders under the bonnet, indicating that the 503bhp V6 from the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio will be used.

Electrification isn’t ruled out, but an all-electric powertrain would likely be sidestepped - Maserati will bring the all-electric Alfieri to market in the same year, so the two would likely clash.

Rebellion to continue with ORECA for 2018-19 super season

  Rebellion to continue with ORECA for 2018-19 super season Rebellion Racing has renewed its partnership with ORECA as the team returns to LMP1 for the 2018-19 World Endurance Championship. Having won the LMP2 class last season, Rebellion is aiming to build on its 2017 success this year by will keep the same chassis and engine manufacturer moving forwards. The Rebellion R13 will be built by French manufacturer ORECA and will be powered by a new Gibson engine, an update on the one the team used last season. “To design this new LMP1 prototype is a wonderful challenge,” said ORECA Group CEO Hugues de Chaunac. “When the design bureau began developing the Oreca 07, we really wanted to move up to the next level, one step higher compared to the Oreca 05. “The successes achieved last year really motivated and convinced us to now tackle the highly competitive main category. “Fitted with an atmospheric engine, this LMP1 will face a hard task against the hybrid cars. But the Rebellion R 13 will be a very determined challenger.” The car, which will be based on the LMP2 winning machine, will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Rebellion has already confirmed its super season driver line up. Bruno Senna and Mathias Beche will continue at the team and will be joined by Andre Lotterer, Neel Jani, Gustavo Menezes and Thomas Laurent.

According to German Alfa Romeo tuning outfit Pogea Racing, Alfa Romeo is set to introduce a new 6 C sports car in 2020. The Alfa Romeo 6 C will slot above the 4C in the automaker’s lineup, serving as its new halo model. Under the hood will be the 503 hp 2.9-liter

A notable racing use of the V 6 engine was the Alfa Romeo 155 V 6 TI, designed for the 1993 Nissan also has a quite successful history of using V 6 's for racing in both IMSA and the JGTC. Development of their V 6 s for sports cars began in the early 1980s with the VG engine initially used in the Z31 300ZX.

It’ll sit above the four-cylinder 4C and act as a halo car in the brand’s range of sporting-oriented mass-market models - a rival to the upcoming Toyota Supra. The 4C is also due a refresh next year, with improvements to the suspension and steering.

Although the source of the information is not revealed by the German tuning outfit, it’s claimed that they are working closely with the project, and are enthusiastic about the car, suggesting a high-level Alfa Romeo executive. An Alfa Romeo spokesman described the claims as speculation, but didn’t rule out the possibility of a sports car in the future.

Alfa Romeo’s new push is also giving birth to a Formula One outfit - the brand confirmed its partnership with race team Sauber, and it’s likely that the road-going model will at least be marketed with a claimed influence from the motorsport. 

The 6C will sit above the 4C (pictured), and will likely have six cylinders, hence the name © Autocar The 6C will sit above the 4C (pictured), and will likely have six cylinders, hence the name The last time Alfa Romeo entered such a market was in 2007, when it produced the Ferrari V8-engined 8C, which was limited to 500 units worldwide. It’s not yet known if the 6C would be produced in limited number, or as a fully-blown production model. 

How Formula 1 engine rules are tightening for the 2018 season

  How Formula 1 engine rules are tightening for the 2018 season Last year's intense Formula 1 title fight between Ferrari and Mercedes meant boundaries were being pushed and rules clarifications called on - and there are more in store for 2018 .Oil burn was the main regulatory controversy of the 2017 F1 season.A spate of clarifications on this matter coincided with an ebb and flow of Mercedes and Ferrari's performance - even though there was never a suggestion either of them had outright broken rules.One consequences of the oil burn controversy was a push by teams and the FIA to impose new rules for 2018 to stop any grey areas of the regulations being exploited.

More concretely, according to Auto Express, in Alfa are working development of 6 C , which will be Alfa Romeo Gloria - Продолжительность: 1:19 auto motor und sport 208 955 просмотров. BMW Engine Plant in China - Продолжительность: 15:17 Car TV 995 945 просмотров.

Alfa Romeo 6 C sports car under development with V 6 engine . Diesel hit hard as January car sales fall by 6.3%. Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce costs from £37,935.

In the wake of FCA’s Mazda MX-5 spin off being badged the Fiat 124, the brand is said to be exploring the idea of a successor to the Brera coupé and Spider, albeit with more power and less weight to address the criticisms of those models. Being a V6, it’ll likely bridge the gap between the entry-level 4C and the supercar-baiting 8C of last decade.
