Alfa Romeo: no plans to expand GTA range

  Alfa Romeo: no plans to expand GTA range Italian maker has reintroduced GTA badge to Giulia but is unlikely to launch SUV variantsThe Italian maker hopes the renaissance of the GTA badge will help create a halo effect for the brand - especially in the absence of the GTV and 8C rebirths, for which plans were ditched last year - but product marketing boss Fabio Migliavacca said the ethos of GTA doesn’t fit with other cars in Alfa Romeo’s line-up.

The new Super 225 package boosts the third-generation 'NC' model to 224 bhp.

Tuning firm BBR has announced a new ‘Super 225’ package that applies modern tuning technology to the 15-year-old third-generation Mazda MX-5. The company, which is based in Brackley, Northamptonshire, says the new upgrade is “the ultimate no-compromise intake package” for “hardcore” enthusiasts.

The Citroën GS: glamour, gadgets and guilt

  The Citroën GS: glamour, gadgets and guilt For the latest classic car news, features, buyer’s guides and classifieds, sign up to the C&SC newsletter here For years after the GSA died in 1986, I felt guilty about my small involvement in the life and times of the Citroën GS. I never owned one, mind you, although I do regret not getting involved in the model’s heyday. Not quite so regretful now, of course, because without taking some very expensive precautions all I’d have today would be a great-looking pile of ferrous (or is that ferric?) oxide. No, my guilt has a different source. And it’s still here 50 years after the GS was launched. © Citroën Communication/DR The GS became a mainstay, with 1.

History. Romance. Passion. Three words that define more than 100 years of Alfa Romeo heritage, on display in Milan’s Museo Storico Alfa Romeo . Come behind

Home to the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo , or the Alfa Romeo Museum , it’s a six-story celebration of one of the most legendary automotive brands in the world. Alfas of recent memories have been somewhat lackluster, and that’s coming from someone who’s a self-confessed Alfisti .

Unlike many of BBR’s upgrades, the new Super 225 pack does not require the addition of a turbocharger to the MX-5’s normally aspirated 2-litre petrol engine. Instead, the package builds on the Super 200 conversion by improving the engine inlet efficiency, allowing an increase in power, torque and throttle response.

Under the bonnet, BBR has fitted a new exhaust manifold, new camshafts and branded tailpipes, as well as a few smaller additions. Together the tweaks deliver an extra 67 bhp over the standard 2-litre engine, bringing the total to 224 bhp, while an extra 36 lb-ft of torque takes the headline figure to 174 lb-ft.

Alfa Romeo reveals updated Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio

  Alfa Romeo reveals updated Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Alfa Romeo has unveiled its refreshed Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models. The update follows on from tweaks made to the standard Giulia and Stelvio models, which tweaked their appearance while bolstering interior technology levels. The revisions are much the same for these performance-orientated Quadrifoglio models. A larger 8.8-inch infotainment screen is now the focal point of the cabin, while its revised software includes race-orientated displays and functions.

The facilities of the Alfa Romeo historical museum in Arese are the perfect venue for exclusive events. Once the maximum number of people has been reached, the staff inside the Museum halls will ask all other visitors to wait while respecting social distancing of at least 1m.

BBR has retained many of the standard car’s features, with no changes to the engine bay, the engine electrical network or any of the safety systems, so BBR says the engine can be returned to stock specification if owners so wish. The car also meets the UK MoT emissions requirements, and can run on 95- or 98-octane fuel.

Despite the changes, BBR says the in-cabin noise is still “acceptable” for normal use, and the changes to the engine make the car suited to both track driving and urban environments. However, the company does suggest fitting its optional air filter for “everyday use”.

Those wishing to purchase the Super 225 kit can do so in a number of ways. Drivers with standard cars can spend £3,495 plus VAT on a DIY kit, or £4,295 plus VAT on a drive-in, drive-out installation at BBR’s Brackley headquarters. If, on the other hand, a customer already has the Super 200 kit installed on their vehicle, BBR will sell and fit the extra components for £2,495 plus VAT.

Matt Prior: Performance SUVs have the numbers but is this enough?

  Matt Prior: Performance SUVs have the numbers but is this enough? According to strict logic, cars like Audi's RS Q8 should be all-round winners. According to strict logicBut should I care? I mean, it is quite impressive, isn’t it? This is a hurdy great 4x4, after all. It must weigh two and a quarter tonnes and can probably also tow a horse box across a wet field. And as Aston Martin’s chief engineer, talking about the development of the new DBX SUV on these pages last week, said: “Developing these cars does make you a fan of them.

Since 2015, Alfa Romeo ’s sensational collection of heritage cars has been housed in a new museum truly befitting of their majesty. The museum instantly became a must-visit destination for Italian car lovers around the world, and while its closure in 2011, and ensuing four-year restoration, saddened

The kit is also compatible with the smaller 1.8-litre engine fitted to some third-generation ‘NC’ MX-5s, and can also be applied to vehicles equipped with aftermarket 2.3- or 2.5-litre engines. And BBR says it will eventually launch similar packages for earlier and later versions of the MX-5, which last year celebrated its 30th birthday.

“The main challenge for our development program was optimising the intake side of the engine by switching to bespoke independent throttle bodies (ITB’s,) while retaining the standard Mazda Denso engine management system and under bonnet layout,” said BBR’s Neil McKay. “Even the OEM front strut brace remains in situ (where fitted,) and the conversion is fully reversible to stock in future should the owner decide to do so.”
