It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so if you’ve forgotten to do anything nice for your partner, here’s your warning. Get your ass in gear. If it helps get you in the mood, consider this: was one of the loveliest cars ever made, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, named for Juliet? You know, Juliet Capulet?
Ferrari chairman and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne thinks a standalone Formula One team would be the best way to boost Alfa Romeo’s image, per Motorsport.com. Not a mere decal on the Ferrari car as they have now, but an entire Alfa team, likely powered by Ferrari power units.
FACTS: The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint is pretty much the most perfect car ever built, and Charles Morgan should get his own TV show, preferably on Channel 4 instead of BBC Two.
Last year was the first year since 2009 that I didn’t attend the Washington Auto Show; ironic because I skipped it to go out and actually buy a new car (the most valid reason you could give, if you ask me). Needless to say, even though I was content to fall absent last year given my reason, I was excited to explore…
Most wallpaper shots we feature on Jalopnik contain cars in their entirety, but this fraction of an Alfa Romeo is pretty mesmerizing on its own. Plus, it looks prettier from this angle anyway.
Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, revealed a revised North American strategy for the brand, finally inverting plans after months of diverting rumors. The plan includes more trucks and less cars, a new partnership, and fewer Alfa Romeos—oh, and it’s based on the belief that cheap gas will last…
A rev-happy 2.0 Alfa Romeo engine sending all the power to the rear wheels and a stunning Pininfarina body in a special shade of green nodding respectfully to mother nature. This is a perfect picture.
Unfortunately, since you don’t live in the 1970s, you can’t buy a Lamborghini Countach, a Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 or a DeTomaso Pantera brand new. But you can buy an Alfa Romeo 4C, which is probably the closest thing to a modern version of those exotics. What do you need to know before you buy an Alfa Romeo 4C? Don’t…
We bought so many cars, you guys. We bought like, more cars than we have ever bought before. Millions and millions of them! As Automotive News reports, we bought no fewer than 17,470,659 cars and trucks, beating out our previous record in the year 2000.
Wikipedia defines the 4-53T as the single most delectable engine to ever be devised by human hands. I’m not one to argue, though I will get a little bit salty once that jerk bot reverts my edit again. You could say I had a long running love of the Detroits, but that love was about to be put to the test.
Alfa Romeo wants to expand its brand in the United States, so what better way than through sportscar racing? According to Racer, multiple sources claim that Alfa has met with IMSA officials about joining in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s revised P2 class after the 2017 rules go into effect.
Hauling your race car with a truck and trailer is one of the biggest mental and financial costs of motorsports. Things are just better with a street-legal machine.
While Alfa Romeo hasn’t quite gifted us the what-if build generator of our dreams just yet, the company has updated its US website to include a color generator and a full list of available options and features for the Giulia sports sedan. Why make a Christmas list when you could just print this out?
Bad news: We got lost looking for the new Giulia reveal so we had to sit in the nosebleed section.
It has 505 horsepower from a Ferrari-developed, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. It does zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. Alfa Romeo claims a Nürburgring time of just 7:39, supposedly the quickest ever for a sedan. Yes, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is going to kick all the asses.
As Alfa Romeo plans to definitely (maybe) make a comeback Stateside, so far it has only shown off the 4c roadster and the hot Quadrifoglio Verde specification of its M3-fighting Giulia sedan. If this supposed leaked document is anything to go by, we now have a better look at Alfa’s American plans.
Look, we’ve been here before. Alfa Romeo gets that look in its eye, starts playing the music, and then right when its about to deliver the goods and finally sell cars in the States again, something “comes up” and enthusiasts all across America are left wanting. Well surprise, folks, it looks to be happening again.
Much like IndyCar, Formula One has also threatened to split multiple times, but for one crucial moment - ahead of it American counterpart - it did go separate ways for a few races. This is the story of the F1 series that never was.
