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.
