Italian car manufacturer team up with Ducati to celebrate Australian's MotoGP glory
TO CELEBRATE Casey Stoner's victory in the 2007 MotoGP World Championship, Ducati and Alfa Romeo have announced the Ducati Corse special edition version of the Alfa 147.
The Ducati Corse uses a 170bhp 1.9-litre turbo diesel engine and has its own design of 18" alloy wheels, along with red brake calipers, satin-effect mirrors, a rear spoiler, black leather seats, dual-zone climate control air-conditioning and cruise control. It's available in three colours - Giulietta Red, as pictured above, Etna Black and Ghiaccio White.
In three-door form the Ducati Corse costs £17,495, and there's also a five-door at £17,995.
Nice work lads - if a bit on the late side.

It's a 170bhp car, why is the fuel type significant?
One thing is for certain, it does have traction control.

Because I have a diesel car and it revs to about 5k. It is not sporty at all. And why would you be more likely to to be swayed by a Casey Stoner special eddition Ducati hatchback? Wouldn't it make youy want to buy a Ducati instead?

I've got a diesel powered car and that isn't sporty either but then it's the size of a small planet.
Audi won at LeMans this year with a diesel powered car. Is that not sporty enough?
Diesel cars compete and win in Touring cars. What determines whether a car is sporty?
