ItalianCar is just about to take delivery of a 2002 Alfa 147 Selespeed – dark metallic blue and 5 door – on ‘long term test’. Look out for our updates on how things go – we’ll keep you informed of how it drives, how much it costs to run and other things you might be interested in. We are also about to make wholesale changes to the way ItalianCar works – to your benefit we hope.

The first change – which we hope you’ll appreciate – is that we will move to as close to real time reporting as we can ie when a news story breaks we’ll get it to you pretty quickly, not at the next update.

More info to follow shortly.

So much to say. so little time. Or should that be space. You might have noticed a small button appearing at the top left of the home page called ‘Premium’.

Click on this and you enter a new world of Italian cars. We only have two articles up in the Premium section right now but plenty more are to come – and we will have some really great cars featured!

And in other news. latest info from Targa Tasmania shows 20 Italian marque cars registered to take part – 2 Lamborghini Gallardos, a Lancia Delta Integrale and a Beta HPE, a brace of Fiats, a herd of Alfas, a few exotics – a Bizzarrini and a Maserati 3500 Vignale ( a’Masserati’ according to the Targa website) and. hang on a minute this can’t be right. only one Ferrari! And we thought Ferrari was motorsport. Come on Ferrari owners – where are you?

At the Greenfleet inaugural environmentally friendly technology trial at the Grand Prix a Mercedes fuel-cell bus and a few turbo-diesel engined cars were shown off. Holden Astra and Honda Accord are now available in diesel variants – 13 cars took part this year, in an event that will be held every two years.

We hope to raise awareness about cars available for motorists who want to reduce their impact on the environment, he said. With these new technologies, driving a fuel-efficient vehicle does not have to compromise our lifestyle choices. Greenfleet Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that offers a tax-deductible $40 donation for planting and maintaining 17 native trees on behalf of a car owner.

It claims that 17 is the number required to absorb the greenhouse gas emissions that the average car produces in a year (based on 4.3 tonnes of CO2).

Peter Brock – a patron of Greenfleet – was at the trial driving the 1.9-litre turbo-diesel Astra due to go on sale in June. Mr Brock’s vehicle delivered fuel economy of just 4.35L/100km over the event route, which took in about 200km of peak-hour city and country driving around Melbourne. The Astra’s fuel economy was close to the new Alfa Romeo 147 JTD, which delivered 4.39L/100km and, although driven mostly under 1500rpm, was one of the most fuel efficient of the bunch.

We’ll be reviewing our test drive of the Alfa 147 JTD soon in the Premium section.
