New render Alfa Romeo 169

Posted in Alfa Romeo

After much request from readers to our colleagues at autoblog.it, we publish this rendering from Omniauto of the future Alfa Romeo 169. We’re not all agreed on the design proposed here as we were expecting a coupè-sedan more marked in its agression, with a greater link to the 8C Competizione style.

Creating an heir to the 164 and the 166 will be a heavy task: keeping the Alfa sedan up to German competition won’t be easy. Various strategies and rumours are keeping our hopes afloat for the future of this vehicle, with a drawing proposed of the possible Jaguar platform for the 169, possible Maserati roots and talk of rear wheel drive. 2011 is a long way off, though.
