Alfa Romeo car began in 1906. Near Milan, an assembly company for French passenger cars Darracg was organized. But this brand did not receive recognition and was not in demand among motorists. Therefore, in 1910, the Italian brand Alfa Romeo was born. In 1986, Alpha was absorbed by the Fiat empire.
In 1906, Societa Italiana Automobili Darracq was established near Milan, specializing in the assembly of French passenger cars Darracq. The head of the company was Hugo Stella. French cars were not in demand among the inhabitants of Italy, so it was decided to assemble the Italian cars. In 1910 A.L.F.A. was born.
Stela invited an engineer J. Merosi to work, who created the first brainchild of the company - a five-seat open convertible 24CV (42 hp). This model has become the main pre-war product of Alpha. On the basis of a successful model, sports models of racing modifications were produced. In 1915, Alfa was headed by Nicola Romeo, who gave the current name to Alfa Romeo.
The impetus for the successful development of the company was the complete victory of the Alfa P2 car at the first world-class racing championship. It was in the mid-20s that Alpha brand cars became known around the world. In 1950, the engineers of the company were asked to create a new car that combines comfort for the whole family and racing performance.
It was with these characteristics that the new Alfa Romeo TI and the improved Ti Sprint Super Sport and Ti Coupe Sprint rolled off the assembly line.
At the company's new plant in Arese, the Julia model - a convertible - was born. The appearance of the new flagship Alfa Romeo 164 makes a splash at the Frankfurt Motor Show (1987). The model was distinguished by its unsurpassed originality. Although there was a hint of streamlined forms of involvement in the joint development of 8MB, Fiat and Alfa Romeo, the late Alfa Romeo 164, was recognized as the most successful in design and characteristics.
