The Alfa Romeo Arna was a series of hatchbacks first introduced in 1983. The product of a collaboration between Alfa Romeo and Nissan, Arna stands for "Alfa Romeo Nissan Autoveicoli," or Alfa Romeo Nissan Automobiles. Built in Italy, the Arna was powered by a range of four cylinder boxer engines. The Arna is regarded by large parts of the motoring world as a strangely executed collaboration, with Alfa Romeo largely providing the mechanicals, and Nissan creating the design and body, which is the opposite of what an automotive enthusiast would imagine (Japanese reliability and Italian style). The Arna was in production until 1989.
