Total Production: 53,047 1983 - 1987 The Alfa Romeo Arna was introduced at the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show and would be produced from 1983 through 1987. In total, there were 53,047 examples produced. The car was a partnership between Alfa Rome and Japanese manufacturer Nissan.
The Arna was not an economical success for Alfa Romeo, and remained in production for only four years. It was initially a 3-door L version and a 5-door SL version. In 1984, a 3-door TI version was introduced fitted with a 1.3-liter boxer engine that made a top speed of 170 km/h possible. In 1985, a new more powerful 1.2-liter engine was available.
The Arna was succeeded by the Alfa Romeo 33. By Daniel Vaughan | May 2010
