Jaguar designs Alfa Romeo 169

AutoCar reports the upcoming Alfa Romeo 169 model could have its design by the next owner of Land Rover and Jaguar. Sergio Marchionne, the dynamic CEO at Fiat said the new owner could very well be providing the key ingredient missing for creating a `stunning` model rear-drive Alfa 169.

"We have a stunning design for the 169, and we know how to build a rear-drive platform for it” explained Marchionne. “But we would rather buy a suitable platform from one of our competitors to be more cost competitive. We have talks under way with different manufacturers, and I expect a final decision in January".
