Although not yet available and no price has been announced in Britain, Alfa Romeo have unveiled their rumoured small car which is being built in a completely new factory in Southern Italy. The car is called the “Alfasud” and has a front-mounted flat-four engine with a belt-driven single overhead camshaft per bank. Drive is through the front wheels, front suspension is McPherson struts and the rear is a live axle suspended on coil springs and telescopic shock-absorbers. There has been a lot of attention to safety and the body-shape is somewhat Citroën GS-like. We look forward to driving this interesting new challenger on the small-car market.
