This photo is for Pierre Langlois (pierrefonds). I have been enjoying his classic car photos recently and I wanted to return the favor. Besides, I need to upload some 2013 Pittsburgh International Auto Show photos now that the 2014 event is only a week away (high time, isn't it?).
Here is what I found out about Alfa Romeo from Wikipedia: Alfa Romeo was founded as A.L.F.A. (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) on June 24, 1910, in Milan. The company has been involved in car racing since 1911, and has a reputation for building expensive sports cars. It was owned by Italian state holding company Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industriale between 1932 and 1986, when it became a part of the Fiat Group, and since February 2007 a part of Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A.
The quadrifoglio emblem (also called the 'cloverleaf') has been the symbol of Alfa Romeo racing cars since 1923. Following WWII, it has also been used to designate the higher trim models of the range (comparable to BMW M Performance or Volkswagen GTI models). The quadrifoglio is usually placed on the side panels of the car, above or behind the front wheels. The symbol consists of a green or gold cloverleaf with four leaves, contained within a white triangle.
Bu fotoğraf Pierre Langlois (pierrefonds) içindir . Geçenlerde onun klasik araba fotoğraflarının zevkini alıyordum ve iyiliği iade etmek istedim. Ayrıca, 2014 olayına sadece bir hafta kala şimdi bazı 2013 Pittsburgh Uluslararası Auto Show fotoğraf yüklemek gerekir (zamanı gelmiş, değil mi?).
İşte benim Wikipediadan Alfa Romeo hakkında öğrendiğim budur: Alfa Romeo ALFA (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) olarak 24 Haziran 1910'da Milanda kuruldu. Şirket, 1911 yılından bu yana araba yarışlarına katılır ve pahalı spor arabalar yapma ününe sahiptir. 1932 ve 1986 yılları arasında, Fiat Grubu'nun bir parçası olana kadar, İtalyan devlet holding şirketi Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industrialee aitti ve Şubat 2007'dem beri Fiat Group Automobiles SpAnın bir parçasıdır.
Quadrifoglio amblemi (ayrıca 'yonca' denir), 1923 yılından beri Alfa Romeo yarış otomobillerinin sembolü olmuştur. İkinci Dünya Savaşından sonra, aynı zamanda, dizimin daha yüksek modellerini belirlemek için kullanılmıştır (BMW M Performansı veya Volkswagen GT modelleri ile karşılaştırılabilir ). Quadrifoglio genellikle ön tekerlekler üstünde ya da arkasında, arabanın yan panellerine yerleştirilir. Sembol beyaz bir üçgen içinde bulunan dört yapraklı yeşil veya altın yoncadan oluşur.

Hello Murat Bey,
As a high school student I used to doodle by drawing and designing sleek cars, and from a variety of angles. I like this shot of the Alfa Romeo, unusual that the pyramidal structure above the seats may be. Your note reveals the source of the "Alfa", and I am grateful for that. The Romans of Antiquity and the Italians of today often used "Alpha" as a double entendre, the "First." For example, in Classical Antiquity, there was a brilliant astronomer named Eratosthenes. His friends called him "Beta," suggesting he was second best in everything. The truth, however, was that he was "Alpha" when it came to astronomy. He successfully measured the radius and circumference of the earth.

very nice the view of PROVA in the exhibition center,with the lot of people to enjoy its presentation there.Really Alfa Romeo is a very well known company in Greece,but not recently,because of the lot of its mecanical problems.Never mind, is a well presented old car that shine with an excellent maintence from its owner.

Good rear view of a nice racing car. I like the bright yellow paint on the car, gives it a toy car look. I think the triangle shaped structure is not a part of the original car, but a safety cage for the driver right? Nice bright and clear photo, thanks for sharing.

You're capturing well this Prova 55 by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Alfa Romeo with an innovative design and yellow body in Auto Show. It looks like a powerful sports car, although I am not knowledgeable about a car. And, it is also impressive that people who are in the hall are checking the car eagerly.

Excellent car detail photo. Beautiful yellow Alfa Romeo, a car of my dreams, but newer owned one (because of not the best suitability for low ambient temperature conditions).
Perfect POV and nice diagonal arrangement.
Very well done.
