The bad news: because of emissions problems, Alfa Romeo had to drop a project for two new V6 engines (3.0 and 3.5-liter) that were rumored to make 100 horsepower per liter. The good news: there are rumors that a new V6 family is in the works for Alfa, and its headed by Paolo Martinelli - former engine designed for Ferrari’s F1 team.

Since 2005, Alfa Romeo has been trying to get rid of a General Motor’s sourced V6. This latest project may create a 2.7-liter and 3.3-liter V6. Output will be 300 and 350 hp respectively. Variations on these engines may also include a smaller version with a turbo making 250 hp, and a 3.3-liter bi-turbo churning out 430 hp. There may also be a top of the line tri-turbo 3.3-liter making 500 hp.

So with Alfa’s return to the U.S., all we can say is, bring them on!
