International Motor Show 2001
Frankfurt, Germany
September 13  -  23, 2001

Fiat Group
  • Alfa Romeo

The place of honour on the Alfa Romeo stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show is reserved for the saloon and Sportwagon versions of the Alfa 156 GTA

The Alfa 156 GTA and Sportwagon GTA are two thoroughbred sports vehicles that offer something extra: more performance, more handling, more braking capacity.

Two Alfa 147s wil be introduced, with  the 3-doored 2.0 T. Spark with Selespeed sequential gearbox and the 5-door 1.9 JTD. These cars are joined by an Alfa 156 2.4 JTD, an Alfa Sportwagon 2.5 V6 24V and an Alfa 166 3.0 V6 24V Distinctive.

The Brand's niche models are represented by an Alfa Spider 2.0 T. Spark with a new option: a navigation system built into the car radio.

  • Fiat

The Fiat space is dominated by the new Stilo. Six Stilo versions are on show, with two positioned on rotating platforms: a 3-door and a 5-door. Both are in the Dynamic specification and both are equipped with a 98 kW (133 bhp) 1.8 16v power unit.

The other four range versions include a 3-doored 125 kW (170 bhp) 2.4 20 valve Abarth with Selespeed robotised gearbox and a 5-doored 1.8 16v in the Dynamic specification.

DoblÚ, a model with two spirits - multipurpose car or commercial vehicle, can be see as a brand new version equipped with the tried-and-tested 1.9 jtd Common Rail turbodiesel engine.

Two Puntos are displayed: the lively 5-doored 1.2 16v in HLX specification and the youthful, sporty 'Punto Go!'. The Multipla, the innovative Fiat six-seater, is displayed in a version powered by a JTD 105 turbodiesel engine. Last but not least comes the Naxos barchetta.

  • Lancia

The centrepiece is the Lancia Thesis. Three versions are on show, all in the LX specification: the first is equipped with the 170 bhp 2.4 20v petrol unit; the other two with the powerful 3.0 V6 24v automatic transmission.

The line-up continues with the Lancia Lybra. Two cars are on show, a saloon and a Station Wagon, equipped respectively with a 2.0 five cylinder 20 valve and a 2.4 jtd while the Lancia Y is represented by the youthful, bubbly 'elefantino blu' version.


  • Fiat Stilo

The new car is playing the high-tech card and offers highly innovative ideas and high quality standards to one very specific end: to become the new benchmark within the compact medium-sized car band.

Alfa Romeo

  • Alfa 156 GTA

The Alfa 156 GTA and Alfa Sportwagon GTA power unit is derived from the now classic three liter V6 24 valve unit fitted to top-of-the-range Alfa 166 and Gtv versions: a vigorous and, most important of all, well-rounded power unit.

  • Alfa Sportwagon

The sophisticated mechanical units had to be reflected by styling that conveys an impression of the model's greater strength and sportiness in a few tweaks that do not alter the original shape.




  • Lancia Thesis

The Thesis throws open Lancia's doors to the new Millennium and opens up a new chapter in the relationship between man and machine. New parameters are explored as part of a multisensory approach that involves using top-quality materials not merely for their good looks but also for the corresponding tactile and acoustic reactions they arouse.

  • Maserati Spider

The new Spyder is the first all-new model produced by the Modena sports car manufacturer since the company was absorbed by the Ferrari Group in 1997.
