Last year, Automotive News Europe’s sources claimed that the Alfa Romeo Giulia was delayed for “extensive reengineering” after the car “failed to pass internal front, side and rear crash tests.” Fiat Chrysler then outright denied this to Road & Track, and while we may never know the truth, we do know this: the…
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.
Apparently, you can get an Alfa Romeo Giulia stuck by just trying to drive up a normal driveway, Motor Trend’s Jason Cammisa proved on his Instagram. That is not encouraging.
If there is anything that could make the face of the Alfa Romeo Giulia even more appealing it would be sticking it on the front of a wagon. But before you get too excited, I’m going to shut down those hopes and dreams real quick: this is for EUROPE only.
Alfa Romeo’s upcoming crossover, likely called the Stelvio, is supposed to have a big reveal party at this year’s LA Auto Show in November, and yet, here it is—leaked in a factory tour video from Alfa Romeo themselves.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia QV once lapped the Nürburgring in an unofficial seven minutes and 39 seconds, making it quite possibly the quickest production sedan to lap the Green Hell. And then a Porsche Panamera beat it. Not by much, but numbers are numbers. And now it seems like the Giulia QV just stole the title back.
Not only is the new 2017 Porsche Panamera impressively pretty with a wing straight out of a comic book, it’s also really flipping fast. According to Porsche, the new Panamera Turbo beat the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio as the fastest luxury sedan to lap the Nürburgring with a time of seven minutes and 38 seconds.
While the new Alfa Romeo Giulia is off to a rough start with quality issues, the performance seems to be more than praiseworthy when operational. That’s better news with new rumors that the current 4C roadster may be replaced with a Giulia-based coupe to take on the likes of the BMW M4.
If you didn’t already have a weird thing for police cars like I do, you will now. Alfa Romeo has revealed their 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio for Italy’s Carabinieri police force—a 500 horsepower manual Alfa Romeo police car. Somebody fan me.
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?
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.
A camouflaged 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia was spotted testing on the Nürburgring this week, and it looks good and sounds better.
Pete Vack of Veloce Today wrote this compelling summary of one of the coolest books written about Alfa Romeos. We love Alfas, so we couldn't resist. Hell, even if you don't love Alfas, you should probably buy it. —Ed.
The dude that owns this thing calls it the "Alfamino." Cool conversion, lame name. (We prefer "Giuliamino" — it doesn't match the sticker, but it doesn't sound quite as dorky.) eBay, your wonders never cease.
