Alfa
Romeo has announced that it expects to sell about 800 vehicles in the Brazilian
market in 2001. The ambitious target represents a 128 percent increase on 2000
sales (350 units) writes Rogério Louro Alves.

To help boost sales, the automaker has this week started to sell the 156 Sportwagon
in Brazil. "We plan to sell about 250 units of the Sportwagon until the
end of the year", said Nivaldo Nottoli, director of Alfa Romeo in Brazil.

The 156 Sportwagon is imported to the Brazilian market from Italy only with
the Twin Spark 2.0 engine.

Alfa Romeo also sells the 156 and 166 models in Brazil.
