Who Owns Alfa Romeo?
Who owns Alfa Romeo? FCA, or Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles, has owned Alfa Romeo since 2007. Although it’s been more than 10 years since FCA acquired Alfa Romeo, the automaker still maintains its Italian flair within its lineup of vehicles. Automobiles like the 4C Spider and Giulia showcase just what Alfa Romeo is all about. Since Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is one the world’s biggest automotive manufacturers, their Alfa Romeo takeover expanded the lineup to include sleek, luxurious vehicles that are a thrilling drive around Barrington.
The History of Alfa Romeo
When Cavalier Ugo Stella decided to purchase shares of the Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili in 1910, Alfa Romeo was born. The company’s acronym comes from its original name above and later was used as an integral part of the name (A.L.F.A).
Between 1932 and 1986, a state holding company in Italy owned Alfa. During these years, Alfa Romeo became part of the very popular Fiat group. This merger took another step in the right direction in February of 2007. Alfa Romeo became Alfa Romeo Automobiles S.p.A, which was adopted as a subsidiary of Fiat. Fiat then was known as Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), and after 2007, was responsible for making Alfa Romeo vehicles. Now, Alfa is known as an extension of FCA and has been for more than a decade.
The Alfa Romeo Distinction
FCA acquiring Alfa Romeo didn’t mean that it would diminish the quality or reliability of its Italian roots. On the contrary. Drivers from Mount Prospect to Itasca have witnessed many amazing automotive achievements like the introduction and upgrades to the vehicle lineup, including the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio in 2017 and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio in 2018. Both of these astounding vehicles deliver the performance expected of an exotic Italian vehicle, and the Alfa Romeo Premium Care plan preserves that performance years after the vehicles have been purchased.
