The 90th anniversary of the ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ (green four-leaf clover), the legendary symbol that has identified some of Alfa Romeo’s sportiest models, is being celebrated this year. That refers not only to the cars which have taken to the world’s race circuits, but also to certain special production versions.
