Giugiaro Alfa 156 contribution

For some time there was a rumour that Mr Giugiaro had something to do with the Alfa 156 design (pre-His-facelift of course)
And I did found something:
“In actual fact, Giugiaro contributed to the 156 during the initial stage of the project.”
Maybe it was a bit like an initial design of Gallardo, later finished by Mr Donckerwolke; or a wind-tunnel contribution to MC 12 project?

And more
“Eng. Bandiera also touched upon the styling contribution driven through by Giugiaro in the realization of the ongoing 156 model.”

Both from december 2002, so pre-Giugiaro-2003-156-facelift

8C relation to 4C

Someone was constantly trying to ‘update’ wikipedia with his opinion that an Alfa 4C is a successor to an Alfa 8C Competizione. After a long struggle to keep the vandal away, person in question tried even to find a ‘half-pint’ source to his ‘half-pint’ factual opinion.
Just because some journalist called a 4C half-pint successor to 8C Competizione does not make it so. Also an argument that some car is indirectly related to other just because they are both Alfa Romeo’s is a bit too weak.
My reply on wikipedia’s corresponding talk pages:

“Alfa 8C Competizione is not a predecessor to the 4C, directly nor indirectly. 8C is a V8 front engined, 2 seater, gran turismo, limited production. 4C is a carbon-tub, mid engined, 4 cyl, 2 seater sports car, mass produced. No reltion. And ‘indirectly’ every car is related to every other car. Please don’t change it again. ”

Hope You all agree with this, factual, opinion

Maybe it’s just an aftermarket tuning. Original edition should have a 230PS engine.
