ALFA 100

1910 – 2010:

Alfa Romeo celebrates a century of wins and world records

Alfa Romeo will be celebrating its 100th anniversary on 24 June. Few automarkers have reached this goal, and the circle of those which have achieved the marketing successes and the racing wins of Alfa Romeo is even smaller. Celebrating Alfa Romeo's centenary means browsing some of the most important pages in automotive history. It means remembering cars and engineers, races and engines that put their mark on Twentieth century technological progress and car racing. The heritage of a brand like Alfa Romeo is all this and more, combined with the commitment and professional pride of thousands of people—engineers, factory workers, executives—who have followed one another over the years in the factories, in the offices and on the race tracks.

SAAB rolls!

The production lines at Saab Automobile’s state-of-the-art Trollhättan plant began rolling again today, heralding a new era for the Swedish premium car maker as an independent company. To mark the occasion, Saab Automobile CEO Jan Åke Jonsson, Spyker Cars CEO Victor Muller and Trollhättan Plant Director Gunnar Brunius took up positions on the line alongside assembly workers as the first batch of cars was built.

Production at the Trollhättan plant was originally halted for seven weeks. Now, following the purchase of Saab Automobile AB by Spyker Cars NV, the first cars to be built by Saab as an independent company will soon be delivered to customers.

“Today’s resumption of production is a milestone in the history of our company” said Jan Åke Jonsson. “We are up and running as an independent manufacturer and I am delighted to share the experience on the line alongside our workforce. They have shown tremendous commitment to the company and we are all now focused on ramping up production to meet customer demand.”

First on the line today was an all-new Saab 9-5 saloon, destined to join a test fleet prior to the model’s official launch later this year. Further down the line was a Saab Convertible, now also being produced in Trollhättan as part of the concentration of Saab operations in Sweden. With the introduction of the new 9-5 SportWagon next year, a total of five model lines will be produced at the plant.

“We have a highly flexible, world-class facility here at Trollhättan,” said Plant Director Gunnar Brunius. “Our ability to build so many different models in one location improves plant utilization and will deliver valuable efficiency gains.  With these state-of-the-art facilities and a dedicated workforce, we are in excellent shape.”

Victor Muller, CEO of Spyker Cars said: “Everyone at Saab has worked extremely hard to reach this important point.  Today production restarted with a new 9-5 first down the line – a fitting symbol that a new era has begun.”
