What most people can answer the question: "What associations do you have Italy?". With a probability of 100%, the words “pizza”, “spaghetti” or “pasta” will be called. Neither the Colosseum, nor even Rome, for some reason, do not recall or recall fewer respondents. And only very few mentioned Italian cars. But without exaggeration this is already a legend!
True, in Italy itself, local automakers are not as popular as, for example, German. It turns out that the average resident of the Apennines would rather choose a small car than an Italian supercar.
The reason is not only the high cost of these luxury cars. The small Italian streets of most cities do not allow to turn around to powerful “steel horses”. And the fuel consumption of Italian cars is high for Italy, where gasoline is one of the most expensive in Europe.
But this is theirs. We have a special attitude to Italian cars. The legendary models of Ferrari and Lamborghini are the favorite toys of domestic moneybags. However, the automakers of Italy offer cars and more affordable price range: Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, which can easily compete with cars from Germany. Now we will briefly tell you about the famous models of the Italian car industry.
