Fiat Diesel Brasil S.A.,
Avenida Presidente Vargas, 542-20. °, Caixa Postal 90, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The former Fábrica Nacional de Motores (FNM), launched by the government in 1942, went to Alfa Romeo in 1968. In 1973 Fiat increased its shares to 43%. Now the company is called Fiat Diesel and produces trucks, but also the Alfa Romeo 2300. A transfer of production to Fiat Brazil (see front page) is thought, but meets with the resistance of local authorities. The car production would be summarized then. 12000 Alfa Romeo 2300 (Rio) should lose Alfa Romeo Germany, but sees itself more in the role of a distributor for Europe and less for Germany. Here is finally expected the big Alfa (2.5-liter V6, 165 hp) in early 1979. From the Alfa Romeo (Rio) 2300 currently three variants are built: Normal and B with 2.3 liters of 141 hp, Ti with 149 hp.
