Any car with a horse, bull, or trident emblem on it should do.

Your're going to Italy and you're going to be looking for cars & not girls? Well, if you must, at least look for cars with girls in them! :)
:lol: I am going with my girlfriend so "I was looking at that hot car" sounds a lot better than "I was checking out that hot chick".

Ahhh, Roma. Was there in October it was 80F, the women where amazing.

Didn't see any hot cars and way too many scooters trying to occupy the crosswalk at the same time I was.

You don't plan on DRIVING in Italy, do you? They are insane. Lanes mean NOTHING to them, especially at stoplights. They line up 3 or 4 cars across a 2 lane street and drag race through the intersection.

You'll see alot of German cars in Italy. If you see anything particularly sexy (be it sheetmetal or otherwise) we'd be happy to look at your pictures and identify it for you. Have a great time!

Hi all!

Have to say that you Americans are sometimes strange ;) .

You really ask which cars are sexy in Italy?

Every little boy on the planet knows Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini. But their cars tend to be a bit expensive :( .

BUT of course there are other cars that are achievable.

Have you never heard of Alfa Romeo???

If you ask me, they're building some of the nicest cars today. Watch out for the Alfa GT, the 147 and the 156. I don't like the 166 but that's a matter of taste.

The last time I looked at Alfa's line they had switched most of their cars to front wheel drive. Is this still the case or are they bringing back rear drive cars? I had an 84 GTV-6 by the way.

Currently Alfa offers no new RWD vehicles.

But take a look at this link:

http://www.alfaromeo.de/cgi-bin/pbrand.dll/ALFAROMEO_GERMANY/design/[email protected]@@@[email protected]@@@&BV_EngineID=ccceaddekjhemhecefecejgdfiidfho.0&categoryOID=-1073756165&contentOID=1073898214

it shows the Alfa Romeo "8c Competizione". It is a concept car they've shown at the last IAA in Frankfurt in 2003. I've been there and I have really seen it :) !

If you ask me that's a car! It was so beautiful that I had to stand there for ... don't know how long but a minute longer and the guy with the feather duster would have started dedusting me ;) .

Of course the 8c had RWD but unfortunately it will NOT be built :( .

Yes, I've seen photos of it. Great looking car.

If they ever brought a rear drive Alfa Spider back to the USA I would give it some consideration.
