Guanzhou Auto confirmed that production of the Trumpche will start at September 28. It is based on an old Alfa 166 platform and powered by an Alfa/Fiat 2.0 Twinspark engine. Guangzhou Auto is working on other engines, including a 1.6, a 2.4 and a 2.4 diesel. At launch however, it will be the Twinspark alone.
First shot of the interior shows neat but slightly boring, just as the exterior. Note manual. A 5-speed auto will be available as well.
There’s a light error in this info: the basis of above mentioned car is Alfa 166, not 66 🙂
[Edit: thanks very much…]
Alfa fans in Europe will be happy the Twin-Spark engines live on… Although no chance of selling in Europe because of new emissions regulations
the design stayed interesting…
