In less than a year we will see the official Alfa Romeo 149 . Quite literally all we will do is see the new 149 until Alfa decides to sell in the U.S. again. For Europe, the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show will be the place for the 149’s unveiling. Untiil then we speculate! This latest rendering come from the Italian page OmniAuto.
The 149 will be built on an entire new platform, internally known as the "C-Evo". The chassis is taken from Fiat Bravo and Lancia Delta . Under the hood Alfa Romeo will place a 1.4 T-jet engine with output between 120 and 150 hp. The GTA version will be offered with either a 1.6 or a 1.8 liter engine with output up to 190 hp.
