It just doesn’t get better than this… And for once, the journalists (well, those with some balls anyway) agree. It’s so much soul in new Giulia, it’s almost too hot to handle. Which, if you wondered, is the way it should be.
So now, who needs a kidney or few? I’ve got one to spare…
Inautonews – Report – Alfa Romeo’s SUV might get Stelvio nameplate
The latest rumor flying around the mill puts Fiat Chrysler Automobiles chief executive officer Sergio Marchionne reportedly confirming Alfa Romeo’s upcoming crossover would be badged as the Stelvio. Apparently the loose lip episode took place while Marchionne was visiting the Cassino factory to reveal the much anticipated Alfa Romeo Giulia […]
I would want one even if it had the slowest sedan lap time on Nürburgring. So next year it’s finally time to get a new car… Damn. Or maybe I should just move somewhere where I can have two cars parked?
Anyway… Just come and take my money already!
Oh I would definitely love that… Back to premium sporty segment would be nice. It's too bad the brand has got really bad reputation during the fwd years. So let's not talk about Suds. And Arnas… and…
But I really hope Alfa can stand alone… And they should definitely invest in new tech and alternative fuels/engines, it should be the way forward. They will probably need a good partner for something like that, but it should definitely remain Italian.
And, yes… I'm still patiently (passionately?) waiting for Giulia, whenever she decides to come along ;)
Alfa will become stand-alone company, sources say
Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne will turn Alfa Romeo into a stand-alone company — like Maserati and Ferrari — as part of his latest plan to revive the brand, sources told Automotive News Europe.
Can't wait to read that article in MotorsPort mag… Good to know it's still a proper Alfa… "the car is often adorable, occasionally irritating, sometimes frustrating but always interesting. In other words a proper Alfa Romeo"
So where do I get that mag? Ahh, digital edition… Great. Can't wait for it ;)
Ok, this is so much better review than one the guys from +Top Gear did the other day… It's not really a competitor to Cayman S as I see it, even tho the price range is similar… This is a bit more modern (albeit not very eco-friendly ;) 4-cylinder car that can't really feel like Porsche's 6-cyl engine. Not that I wouldn't love to fit one heavily tuned Busso V6 in it and take it home with me ;) And just why would anyone compare Alfas interior quality to a German car?! It's still an Alfa, and it can't be perfect in that way guys…
Nice test drive +Road & Track it's good to see what the car performs on a racetrack, because that's what you are buying it for… And some nice driving by Chris Harris there too ;)
I also wanted to love the 4C very much. And I still want one, of course, but from the first time I've seen it I wanted to have one with Busso V6. The one from GTA. Slightly tuned… Like the one that those nice chaps at Autodelta are creating. And a manual stick. And those lights… ugh.
Oh well… There's still hope for a V6-powered Giulia QV. Or, better yet, GTA. What else will they do with that nice engine from Maserati. Just power that poor, heavy Ghibli? I hope not…
