A Look At Alfa Romeo

There are few entities that have made as strong of an impact on the automotive landscape as Italian automaker Alfa Romeo. The company was founded as “ALFA” in 1910, short for Anomina Lombardo Fabbrica Automobili. In 1915 Nicola Romeo bought the company and the Alfa Romeo name was born. Alfa Romeo quickly rose to prominence as one of the top makers of European racing cars in the early 1900s. Legendary race car driver and Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari got his start racing for Alfa Romeo during the 1920s, and enjoyed success as the manager of their racing team before founding Ferrari.
