Most of you do not necessarily like Alfa Romeos but can appreciate the beautiful designs of these Italian cars.

It does not take a genius to know that Alfa Romeo produces stunning cars. Respect.

No matter how beautiful the cars might appear, the buying public needs assurance from manufacturers that they will be well looked after even after the car has left the showroom.

In the South African context, this is where Alfa has failed.

We are hoping that the Italians will work towards regaining their former fame.

If the manufacturer does not take drastic steps to instil public confidence in them, then most of these striking machines, like the newly launched Alfa GT Q2, will not leave the showrooms.

The GT Q2 was launched in Tshwane last week. This is a member of the GT family.

Like any Alfa, one cannot fault the design and appearance of the car.

The Alfa GT Q2 is cosmetically distinguished by specific 18-inch rims, dual-chromed exhaust terminals, a satin finish grille complemented by front "whiskers" and mirror housings, a lower stance and a Q2 logo on the tailgate.

The main element of the Q2 system is a limited slip differential of the torsen mechanical type. This differential splits torque between the front-drive wheels dynamically and constantly, according to driving conditions and the road surface. Combined with the exclusive double wishbone front suspension, the system allows for effective fine tuning of the car.

The styling of the interior underlines Q2's sporty character: an instrument panel with a red background and white lighting, black leather seats with red stitching and the Alfa Romeo logo, the steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake gaiters, special Q2 heel-high scuff plates, grey anthracite facia trims and aluminium pedals.

Radio controls on the steering wheel, radio with CD and MP3 player, and a Bose hi-fi system with sub-woofer are all standard.

This 1,9 JTDm engine produces power output of 110kW at 4000rpm and torque is an impressive 305Nm at 2000rpm.
