New E-segment Alfa Romeo in Paris next year?
Many rumors go around about Alfa Romeo every day, but one which returns regularly is that their E-segment flagship might be shown to the public way sooner than everyone expects. It is now the German magazine Auto Zeitung which announces an Italian offensive in this by Germans dominated segment. The Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte were the first models to introduce this offensive.
The editors of this German magazine say that a presentation of the 166-successsor might already take place in September 2014 at the Paris Motor Show. They also claim that mister Piëch can now really give up on his plans of Alfa Romeo becoming the thirteenth brand of VAG. Instead, the Milanese brand will be introducing an opponent of their Audi A6. Auto Zeitung also say that multiple variants will be introduced, such as a Shooting Break or, a little more Italian, ‘Sportwagon’. The engines would be the same ones as in the Maserati’s. We already reported a while back that Alfa Romeo is working on its very own technique in terms of suspension and transmission. The worldwide debut would follow in 2015 and expected is that this flagship of Alfa will especially turn heads in the US and pose a real threat to the Germans over there.
