Benjamin Franklin wrote in 1789 that nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes, but now, 229 years later, we'd like to add one more item to that listing.

Alfa Romeo, the Italian brand built (and rebuilt) on 1960s sex appeal, posted the biggest surge in US sales in 2017, an anachronistic result in an industry currently mesmerised by battery packs and self-piloted transportation pods. The carmaker won its bragging rights the oldfashioned way — through performance. Alfas have curb appeal, powerful engi...
