Latest News: In an evolutionary year for Jeep, the new plug-in hybrid Renegade and Compass will make their Italian debut at the Salone dell'Auto in Turin. Visitors to the Parco del Valentino will be able to admire these new models while listening to the sights and sounds of the natural world around them, as the Renegade takes its first on-road appearance. International on-road debut of the New Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid The Turin event marks the first on-road appearance of Renegade with plug-in hybrid technology (PHEV). The new SUV will set off from Piazza Vittorio Veneto on a parade around the city centre. Both the Renegade and Compass emit less than 50g/km CO2 and are even more fun to drive courtesy of the smooth acceleration and engine response. They are both fitted with plug-in hybrid propulsion systems, and batteries which can be recharged by the internal combustion engine or from an external power outlet and, as a consequence, can store an impressive amount of electric energy. This combination translates into a pure electric range of approximately 50km and a top speed of approximately 130km/h in full electric mode for both Renegade and Compass. The electric units work in synergy with the new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engines to increase efficiency and power overall. The combined action of the two propulsion systems produces up to 240hp. The off-road benefits of hybrid propulsion The high torque of the electric motor, and the ability to adjust it with extreme precision during initial acceleration while driving on the most challenging terrain, will further improve the legendary capability of the Jeep range. Thanks to the new electric all-wheel-drive technology (eAWD), traction to the rear axle is not provided by a prop shaft but through a dedicated electric motor. This allows the two axles to be separated and to control the torque independently in a more effective way than a mechanical system.

“La Macchina del tempo” lights up in red for Alfa's 106th anniversary : 

To celebrate the 106th anniversary since the brand was established, the historic 24-metre tall sycamore tree planted in front of the historical Museum lights up in the brand's most representative colour. Visitors can admire its trunk and foliage throughout their visit, observing how both the brand and its designs have developed over time, along with its major victories.

Alfa Romeo celebrates its 106th anniversary today. To celebrate, the massive sycamore tree that stands proudly in the square in front of the "La macchina del tempo" Historical Museum in Arese has lit up in red. 24 metres tall, the tree was planted in the early 1970s when the complex was built. When the building was renovated, special attention was given to the sycamore tree: indeed, visitors can admire its base through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the foyer, and its foliage from the upper floor, in Piazzetta Alfa Romeo.

The Historical Museum underwent intensive restoration work which was concluded on 24th June 2015 - during the world preview of the new Giulia - when "La Macchina del tempo", a modern museum that illustrates the story of the brand, opened its doors to the public. During its first year of activity, the Museum has seen over 100 thousand visitors originating from all over the globe, who have enjoyed the "Alfa Romeo experience" thanks to the spectacular cars on display, the documentation from the historic Archive, the 4D cinema, the test drive track dedicated to historic cars and the Arese Motor Village showroom, in the perfect bond between past, present and future.

The architectural project redesigned its functionality, adapting the facility to new activities and to the flow of visitors. The key element in the design is the red structure which crosses the entire complex: from the projecting roof over the visitor entrance, through the entrance and right up to the start of the display route with the new architectural feature of the escalator. This last architectural addition, which can clearly be seen from the motorway owing to its bright "Alfa red" hue, is the symbol of the Museum's rebirth: a modern feature, set within a 1970s architectural context, which provides the necessary link between past and present.

Inside, the museum's layout emphasises the identifying features that belong to Alfa Romeo DNA; depicted through a charming luminous installation that stretches across the building vertically: lights, words and signs of style that come to life in a display with a descending helical motion, symbolising stylistic continuity and technological consistency in time.

The display exhibits 69 models, chosen as those which most marked not only the development of the brand, but the very history of the car itself. These include the first A.L.F.A. model (the 24 HP), legendary winners of the Mille Miglia races such as the 6C 1750 Gran Sport driven by Tazio Nuvolari, the heavyweight 8C Touring, the Gran Premio 159 "Alfetta 159" (Formula 1 World Champion with Juan Manuel Fangio) the Giulietta, icon of the 1950s, and the glorious 33 TT 12. The very essence of the brand has been condensed into three principles: "Timeline", which represents industrial continuity; "Beauty", which teams style with design; "Speed", summing up technology and light weight. Each principle matches a floor of the Museum. Visitors can therefore admire as they proceed through the exhibition both the development of the brand and of design as well as the major victories achieved by Alfa Romeo.

The journey through the legend ends with a playful and spectacular finale: the "bolle emozionali" (emotional bubbles) dedicated to the experience of the Alfa Romeo world, with 360° virtual reality film footage, and a full-immersion room where visitors sit in interactive armchairs and watch 4D films dedicated to the legendary successes of Alfa Romeo.
