Alfa Romeo 159 - The best looking sedan in the world.
The all-new Alfa Romeo 159 has beaten the new BMW Three Series to take the title of the most beautiful sports sedan in the world in the annual 'L'Automobile più Bella del Mondo' awards presented by a jury of leading artists, car designers, architects and stylists.
The Alfa Romeo 159 is the latest in a long line of beautiful cars produced by Alfa Romeo that have stirred the soul as well as the heart. It is both a natural progression of the styling motifs that produced such acclaim for its processor, the Alfa 156, and it is also very much its own design and shape.
Longer and wider than the Alfa 156, the Alfa 159 has a more aggressive shape, broader shoulders, a more pronounced nose and is more of a traditional sedan than the enhanced coupe shape of the Alfa 156. Like its predecessor, the Alfa 159 is blessed with not just a superb overall shape, but also countless exquisite details to catch the eye and engage the mind.
Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro in collaboration with the Alfa Romeo Styling Centre, the essential, sober and clean lines are underlined by superb materials: quality fabrics, precious fine grain leather, aluminium that is cool to the touch and exquisite craftsmanship with the appeal of artisan handcrafted materials. It is this unique combination of classic styling, with modern influences and inspired application of materials that has lifted the Alfa Romeo 159 above its German rivals' cold and clinical approach that often confuses the quality of coolness with coldness.
