After nearly 20 years, Alfa Romeo returns to America Published: April 18, 2014

Following a nearly 20 year absence Alfa Romeo is returning to the United States market with the 4C, an exotic-looking two-seat sports car that made its American debut at the New York Auto Show, says CNN Money.

Alfa's return has been seriously discussed ever since the brand's parent company, Fiat, rescued Chrysler from bankruptcy in 2009. Strictly speaking, Alfa did make a minor U.S.-market re-entry with the pricey Alfa Romeo 8C in 2008.

Only about 100 of those cars, with prices starting around $260,000, were ever sold in North America.
