There are no up-coming events

First Alfa teased us with the 8C but they only made five hundred and it was a bit on the expensive side.  Then they showed us the 4C concept which they intend to put into production in 2013.  It's mid-engined and rear-wheel drive, so possibly the nearest we'll see to the X1/9 experience, but Alfa only intend to make 2,500 a year and it's still a bit pricey.

But good news may be on the way.  Fiat are teaming up with Mazda to develop a new roadster platform.  It will underpin the next generation MX-5 and also a new Alfa roadster.  Both cars will have their own individual engines and designs, but will share a common platform.  Both the Mazda and Alfa variants will be built in Japan.

So, the first affordable, rear-wheel drive roadster from Fiat for many a year, but would you be prepared to drive an Alfa with Japanese DNA?

Bertone's latest design masterpiece, the Nuccio (named after Giuseppe "Nuccio" Bertone) has been making a stir at the Geneva motor show in March this year and more recently at the Beijing Motor Show.  In fact a Chinese collector has taken such a shine to the car that they are in negotiations with Bertone to buy it for a cool $2.7 million.

Well, it actually ended production in 1974, but Lada have been turning out variants of the model ever since, with 18 million sold over 40 years.

The new Panda is due to go into production in November with a view to launching across Europe in Febraury 2012.  We hear that Fiat are looking to follow this up with an Abarth version in 2013.  Featuring a tuned 110hp version of the Twin Air engine, it should be a practical, fun, environmentally friendly drive.  Sounds like a fantastic package to us.
