Some people will do anything to show their love for a particular car brand and if they set a world record along the way, then hey, even better!

In celebrating the 100th anniversary of Alfa Romeo, an Alfa dealership in the
UK, Allams Alfa Romeo in Epsom Surrey, called out as many Alfa Romeo owners as it could for a little show and parade over the weekend. With the record standing at a little over 200 cars, Allams Alfa Romeo parade shattered the mark after 312 cars heeded the call and showed up for the gathering.
Alfa owners from all over the UK showed up in droves with one owner even driving 862 miles just to be part of the festivities.

The new record is still subject to validation by the Guinness Book of World Records, which will perform an investigation regarding the Alfa parade. Since the organizers went through a great detail to ensure the event’s legitimacy – they had video cameras positioned along the route - we’re fully expecting to see the Guinness Book stamp their approval on this new world record.

I don’t want to be too critical, but I don’t think Alfa can be successful in the US. One thing is to attract enthusiasts but selling meaningful volumes outside the fan base is completely different.

"with one owner even driving 862 miles just to be part of the festivities."

More than 300 of those car can reach up to a kilometer or two stretch am I right? Or is it longer? That would have been a great parade to watch. Specially if the models were arranged in such a way that the older ones were at the beginning and the newest model is at the end.
