Are Alfa Abondoning Numbers?

For years now Alfa Romeo’s non-sports cars (think Spyder and GTV) have been identified be their numerical nomenclature. Perhaps it was a way of banishing names with associations like the Alfa Sud.

Well, it looks like that’s now a thing of the past thanks to a leaked document from Chyrsler (following their merger with Fiat) which sees the new Mito being joined by models named the Milano and Giulia. 

This is the document which formed part of Chrysler’s viability plan submitted the US Treasury: 

alfa namesTo be honest I’m not too sure about the names. While when things are leaked early they often get changed, naming cars takes forever and I doubt Alfa will come up look at coming up with replacement. The Mito is fine and cute little motor – even if its ads to wind me up – but I’d love to know what other people are thinking about the proposed new names?
