Top Gear tells us that every self-respecting petrolhead will own an Alfa Romeo at some point in their life, even though they aren’t renowned for their reliability, they aren’t always the fastest cars compared to their competitors, and they have a horrid tendency to get very, very rusty.

Saved from the scrapyard, Manuel describes the Berlina as being ‘extremely ugly’ when he first got it, in white and covered in stickers. However, with a lot of work, the Berlina became one of Manuel’s most cherished cars in his collection.
