The Alfa Romeo Alfetta (Tipo 116, or "Type 116") is a front-engine, five-passenger sedan and fastback coupé manufactured and marketed by Alfa Romeo from 1972-1987 with a production total over 400,000.
The Alfetta was noted for the rear position of its transaxle (clutch and transmission) and its De Dion tube rear suspension an arrangement designed to optimize handling by balancing front/rear weight distribution, as well as maintaining a low polar moment of inertia and low center of gravity. The interior of Coupé models featured a then unusual central tachometer placement by itself, directly in front of the driver.
The Alfetta name, which means "little Alfa" in Italian, derived from the nickname of the Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 Alfetta, a successful Formula One car which in its last (1951) iteration paired a transaxle layout to De Dion tube rear suspension like its modern namesake.
