The very first and so far only Spy Shot of the new Alfa Romeo Giulia testing in China. One black car was seen on the road, only slightly camouflaged and with a temporarily license plate behind the rear window.

Better late than never, an Alfa Romeo 166 in Shanghai.
Hello everyone! Haven’t posted in a while, but today I have something VERY special for you all. But first, I want to take you back to almost exactly three years ago, when this car appeared on this site:

A wondrous white Alfa Romeo 156 Selespeed, Spotted in China just outside the Fourth Ring Road in central Beijing, looking very clean and shiny for its age. The beautiful 156 was manufactured from 1997 until 2007 with facelifts in 2002 and in 2003, this particular car is an original pre-facelift example.
The 156 was never officially exported to China so how this Italian beauty ended up in the capital is somewhat of a mystery. It is a very rare car on Chinese roads, this is in fact the very first one we have seen.

A fantastic Alfa Romeo 166, Spotted in China in the Beijing Tuning Street, looking absolutely stunning in Alfa Red. As it happens, I was just there when the vehicle arrived, its beautiful lines playing with the early summer sun. And out came a Chinese man looking so incredible extremely utterly cool, wearing black trousers an all, that I almost disappeared.

Alfa Romeo has applied for patent on the Alfa Romeo 4C in China, indicating the speedy two-seater might be launched on the Chinese auto market. Alfa Romeo currently doesn’t sell any cars in China. The brand launched with much fanfare on the 2011 Guangzhou Auto Show but didn’t follow up with any actual cars.

Here we have a mellow yellow 916 series Alfa Romeo Spider, seen on a cold winter day in my very own street in Beijing. This great discovery comes only weeks after reader Ali Khalili met a red 916 GTV in the Capital. The Spider was made from 1995 until 2006 and never officially exported to China, but a very few cars made it to Chinese shores via the grey market or diplomatic channels. Read more »

A very clean and very black Alfa Romeo 166, seen in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing by reader Ali Khalili, thank you for the pictures! The Alfa Romeo 166 was produced from 1998 until 2007 but it was never officially exported to China, so how this stylish Italian sedan ended up in the capital is a bit of a mystery. The 166 however has a strong Chinese connection…

New spy shots from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta testing in China, it will be launched on the Chinese car market next year. The Italians take their time, Alfa applied for Chinese patent on the Giulietta back in November 2010 and the Alfa Romeo brand officially debuted in China at the 2011 Guangzhou Auto Show, since then not a single Alfa Romeo has hit the market.

A very red and very beautiful Alfa Romeo GTV, seen in Beijing by reader Ali Khalili, thank you for the pictures! The Alfa Romeo GTV was made from 1993 until 2004. It was never exported to China so how this Italian sportmachine ended up in the capital is a mystery.

The first spy shots from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta testing in China. We knew that is was coming; Alfa applied for Chinese patent on the Giulietta back in November 2010 and the Alfa Romeo brand officially debuted in China at the Guangzhou Auto Show in November last year.
