With high-performance cars comes high-stakes driving, and it looks like somebody’s talent boiled off into tragedy behind the wheel of what had to have been one of the first 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulias sold in America. Hopefully they’ll recover, but the car almost certainly will not.
If I found myself in possession of a 505 horsepower, rear-wheel-drive Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the first thing I’d do would be to take it to a track day and powerslide the living bejeezus out of it. And apparently that kind of behavior would get me triple black-flagged in a single day. Update: The organizer…
It is the time, friends. Yes. You have sensed it. It has called to you, distant, across the water. The Alfa Romeo 159.
A little over a year ago I bought a somewhat oddball old film camera from a British dude off Craigslist trying to unload his collection of, worryingly, the same kind of cameras I was buying up. Along with the camera, he gave me a free lens and a 1998 World Cup commemorative roll of FujiFilm. I’d been saving this…
This isn’t the Alfa Romeo that your dad had in college, the Spider that was great on sunny days but wrecked his bank account over and over again with its repair bills. This isn’t the Alfa Romeo of the 1990s, after it left America and turned out one dismal Fiat-sourced front-wheel drive hatchback after another.
I still have a copy of The World Of The Automobile by Ralph Stein by my desk, a prewar red Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 spread across its full cover. So has my Alfa Romeo experience been largely limited over all these years.
The East Coast is about to get hit with some kind of nightmare blizzard, but before it did, we had a lot of fun with this 505 horsepower Italian bad boy. Full review coming soon.
Hey did you hear? Alfa Romeo is back in America! And not just with a low-volume sports car, but with stuff normal people might actually buy, like the Giulia sedan and the upcoming Stelvio crossover. These seem to be awesome cars to drive, but I’m not so sure you should actually buy one.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a perfect car in my dreams. In this perfect dream world, Alfa claims the Quadrifoglio boasts 505 horsepower from its twin-turbo V6 and max torque of 443 lb-ft out of the box. But how does it hold up in the real world?
Back in October we caught wind that Alfa Romeo was going to sculpt the new Giulia into some sort of mystical Italian wagon. It was probably only destined for Europe, and now it apparently isn’t happening at all.
I’m not saying the Alfa Romeo Carabo is the best concept car ever. I’m merely saying the case could be made.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
What are the odds of me seeing one of these at Cars & Coffee in the morning? Maybe I’ll just sleep in and enjoy it in my dreams.
I’ve always been excited at the prospect of a concept car or design study. Heck, I was excited when Ford revealed the new Fiesta a few weeks ago. There’s just something about the reveal of a new look that’s fun, and what Fiat Chrysler has these college students working on is what I’m all about.
The all new Alfa Romeo Giulia will face serious competition from other European sports sedans. Alfa hopes that by bringing more style, more power at a lower price point, it will steal buyers away.
Has history absolved the front-wheel drive Alfa Romeo Spider?
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is an otherwise ordinary car with a massive 510 horsepower six cylinder engine. Let us briefly look back at this stately inter-war 6C 1750, also a fairly plain old car, only with an equally brilliant straight six for its time.
Mysteriously, outside of Alfa Romeo’s packed press conference end-of-the-world-show was this: a gigantic dumpster labeled Porsche.
