The Hot Two-Seater Sports Car will be Turning Heads again in the Central Florida Area
Alfa Romeo CEO Michael Manley is planning to relaunch in the United States to get the two-seater sports car back on the road here while it introduces its new model, the Guilia. Currently being sold in 59 American countries, the company sees this as an expansion opportunity.
Americans should be pretty familiar with the car that was once sold in the U.S. back in 1995, the famous sports car has been a co-star in many popular American films over the years.
Some may remember Dustin Hoffman tooling down the road in a red Duetto Spider – a popular car in 1966 and 1967 – in the film “The Graduate.” The movie ranks 21st all-time high in box office gross when adjusted for inflation.
With many appearances in James Bond movies, fans may remember in 1983 when Bond (played by Roger Moore in these years) steals an GTV6 as he heads towards Octopussy’s circus troupe on an air base in West Germany. To take this a step further Bond was chased by two cops in BMWs and a motorcycle on Germany’s highways and streets. Then again in the 2008 movie “Quantum of Solace,” James Bond, driving an Aston Martin in Italy was being chased by two black Alfa Romeo 159 TI cars.
In the 1974 flick “The Destructors” Michael Caine drives the speedy Alfa Romeo Montreal next to a Porsche 911 in France in a story where a U.S. intelligence agent is trying to bring to justice a drug baron. With a 2.6-liter V8 engine, the car was discontinued in 1977.
In perhaps another very well-known scene an Alfa Romeo 6C blows up from a car bomb in “The Godfather” in 1972. It happens right after Michael Corleone – played by Al Pacino – marries Apollonia while hiding in Sicily. Corleone hears about the death of his brother in New York and as he prepares to hide his family, his wife is killed from a car bomb that was meant for him.
