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.
