Alfa Romeo to launch a Duetto roadster in 2010

Alfa Romeo is seriously considering launching a small roadster on the American market in 2010. Dubbed Duetto, the Italian roadster will try to spearhead a revival of the eponym model launched in the sixties.

The future roadster would share its underpinnings with the 149 compact model which will be launched next year. Thus, the future Duetto would be able to offer a large choice of engines from a 150bhp 1.4-litre to a 185bhp 2.2-litre units. The roadster is said to be 4300 mm long which is longer than the Mazda MX5. However, the Duetto might be a front-wheel drive roadster which would betray the original Duetto.

Duetto evokes a lot of memories for all car maniacs. The 1966 original car is said to be the last work of art on wheels Battista “Pinin” Farina has taken part of.
