The ALFA ROMEO 105 Series 50th anniversary celebrated!

Published on July 7th, 2013

Alfa Romeo has been in our country longer than most makes. They are one of the first few premium brands that hit the car market for Malaysians. It is no wonder that the car enthusiast of today has driven or owned at least one of these gorgeous Italian cars. I personally had owned two previously and looking forward to drive another if my money tree grows well. HAZ_8722-Edit

Here, the longest Alfa Romeo club, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club or AROC for short had gathered around more than 200 cars today from everywhere in the region. The club is also celebrating their twentieth year as a club since 1993 but the most importantly was the 50 years of the Alfa Romeo Giulia from 1962 to 2012. The 105 series here is actually the Alfa Romeo Giulia as the sports sedan with a powerful engine in a light-weight chassis for mainstream production. And it is one of the first in the world from Alfa Romeo to do that. The Giulia weighed about 1,000 kilograms (2,205 lb). The car was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, similar to that of the earlier Giulietta models range. Engine capacities offered were 1.3-litre (1,290 cc) or 1.6-litre (1,570 cc). Various configurations of carburettors and tuning produced power outputs from about 80 to about 110 bhp (55 to 75 kW). Almost all Giulias made had a 5-speed manual transmission. Giulias were noted for their lively performance among sedans of that era, especially considering the modest engine size. The popular Super version with the twin carburetor 1.6 litre engine had a top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph). 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) took about 12 seconds. This performance was better than many sports cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Back to 2013, the event also held with a little concourse competition with the other vintage Alfa Romeos over there. The rare classic Italian car displays seem to pull in the crowd on all sides of the venue.The Ferrari Dino 246 GTS and the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione displayed side by side brought the audience into a little bit of time travelling as the two were agelessly beautiful and seem to be the main attraction in the event.

At the stage area is packing with loads of attraction with fashion shows on the Alfa Romeo apparels, promotions on most things good for their Alfa Romeos, detailing demos, coloring competitions for the kids and also talks on how to be a better driver on the road and on the track by drivers who had tracked their rides on the circuits. Also, AutoConnexion Alfa Romeo took this opportunity in giving the visitors a free test drive on the newest Alfa Romeo car in their showrooms which is the Giulietta to let the masses know what it is like to drive an Alfa Romeo.

It was a day of fun to gather all of the Alfa Romeos owners, members and non members of the Alfa Romeo community as it was like a huge family day for them. Over the years as an Alfa Romeo owners, these guys had shown their love for the tradition that only the marque of an Italian car could create. And this is definitely what they had meant by Cuore Sportivo! Buon lavoro a tutti!
