Having an Alfa Romeo Giulietta and a Spider I was just curious about the RCZ I read about. I found one for sale nearby and after an admiring glance I was invited for a test ride. I was lost within a few kilometers. The 200 pk engine has the force and the sound you wish for. Some minor problems have just been solved by my (Alfa Romeo) garage in the village. I don't go there to sit and wait. We have an active conversation about any parts that might need improvement or maintenance. My RCZ has not been used for some time and the turbo has to burn off some dirt (coal) with the help of a special additive in the petrol tank. New spark plugs mounted by a specialist and a reset should do the job. I can only subsribe the RCZ lovestories I found on the internet. Yes, my Spider is raw and beautiful and a feast for an open drive in the sun. The RCZ is the mean animal looking for a road trip being tame as long as I hold her quiet. Slowly we become man and machine and we take the country roads to speed up to the limits. This is pure happiness! A long time ago I thought this was a funny car by looking at it. People think it is a Peugeot. Yes, it is, but designed by a special team and built in Austria by Magna/Steyr. It has a perfect builling quality, to my opinion not less than any expensive sportscar. And there it was at an affordable price. Not heavily consuming. A poor man's sports car? Pride and prejudice!
