If anything comes out of the Chrysler/Fiat partnership (and we doubt anything will) we're desperately looking forward to a range of Alfa Romeo products in the States. Right behind the Brera on our imaginary wish-list is this: the 2009 Alfa Romeo 159. Due to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the updated 159 boasts two new engines – a 200 hp, 1.8-liter TBi (turbocharged and direct-injected) four-cylinder and a 170 hp, 1.8-liter JTDm diesel – with the gas-powered variant equipped with a "Q2" electronic differential and a choice of either a six-speed manual or auto 'box. Unfortunately, these leaked images and minor details are all we have, so expect all the info to follow in the first week of March.
