Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe rumoured to have late 2018 release

A two-door version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia has been making a lot of noise around the web for quite some time now. And now, new reports from Autocar have been going around that a coupe variant of the Giulia is actually in the process of development, though there haven’t been spy shots to prove this. Apparently, rumours come from an inside source close to Alfa Romeo, and the model’s official release is supposedly scheduled late this year before it hits the market in 2019.

The Giulia Coupe is said to carry the “Sprint” or “GTV” badge, and is meant to be a more powerful version of the Giulia Quadrifoglio sedan. It will inherit some of the body panels at the front half, except with a different nose to separate it from its four door sibling.

Needless to say, a more sloped roofline suitable for a coupe is being worked on, together with longer doors and a refreshed rear. According to our source, the Giulia Coupe’s rear end will have a trunk like the BMW 4 Series, Mercedes C Class, and Audi A5 coupes. But further rumours suggest that there might also be a five-door version that the automaker is looking into, to go after the 4 Series Gran Coupe and the A5 Sportback.

Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Nero Edizione packs have gone dark

During the 2018 New York International Auto Show, Alfa Romeo brought in the special edition models of the Giulia and the Stelvio. The Nero Edizione packages will now give the sedan and SUV a dark makeover to make them look a bit more stylish. Only the models with the 2.0 liter turbocharged models with 280 horsepower (209 kilowatts) will exclusively be getting the said upgrades.

Both Nero Edizione models will come now be getting a Dark Miron (as Alfa Romeo calls it) finished grille surround. The same colour can be found on the mirror caps and exterior badges too. Shadowy trim surrounds the headlight bezels, while gloss black pieces surround the windows. Moreover, Alfa gave the wheel caps a new monotone badge, while the brake calipers come in black, red, or yellow. Later, there will be a set of dark exhaust tips that will join the package, but they will not be available when the package is first launched.

The special edition Giulia and Stelvio Nero Edizione get a number of individual upgrades as well. The Stelvio gets a Dark Miron applique on the roof rails and the rear fascia. Also, the SUV now sits on a set of 20-inch aluminum wheels in Dark Miron. The Giulia, on the other hand, has its own set of 19 inch wheels that are finished in the Dark Miron colour.

Alfa Romeo exec cites missed software updates in response to bad review of Giulia

Everyone seems to know that the Alfa Romeo Giulia has been recently experiencing problems. Turns out, the blame goes to Giulia’s software. Reid Bigland, big time executive from Alfa Romeo and Maserati, finally responded with an apology after Sam Smith, Road & Track’s editor-at-large published an article bearing the headline “Alfa Romeo Is Its Own Worst Enemy”.

Under the main title, Smith had written “How one of the greatest brands in automotive history might squander what goodwill it has left”. Apparently, the issue began after the media publication’s test car struggled to make it through one lap at the Gingerman Raceway earlier this week.

According to Bigland, the problem was caused by the vehicle’s software, saying that the car was shipped directly from the factory without going through the standard dealer inspection procedure. As a result of this, several software updates must have been missed in the process. If Bigland’s statement is later proven to be correct, then we have found the answer to the malfunctioning engine lights and sunroofs that used to plague Alfa Romeo Giulia in the last two years.

Alfa Romeo dangles $299 a month lease deal for Giulia sedan in the US

For motorists in the United States who think that driving a new Alfa Romeo is worth it, here comes some very good news. Alfa Romeo is slashing $100 off the usual monthly lease for the new Giulia. More specifically, Alfa Romeo is offering US drivers a 24-month lease deal that entails a down payment of just $3,299 and a monthly payment of $299.

This seemingly sweet lease offer comes as the Italian premium carmaker seems to be having some trouble to meet its expectations for the Alfa Romeo Giulia premium mid-size sedan in the US. Although the Italian carmaker has seen sales of the Giulia increase month by month since January 2017, it has yet to breach the 1,000 monthly sales barrier. From a measly sales number of 70 units in January 2017, the Alfa Romeo Giulia crawled its way up to 992 examples in June 2017, for a total of 3,475 units in the first six months of 2017. The increase seems encouraging, but it falls short of the expectations that the Giulia would be a big seller.

For $299 a month, this lease deal is enticing for customers looking for a gorgeous car with Italian design and heritage, state of the art technologies as well as great handling and sprinting capability. This offer refers to a base, rear-wheel drive version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia (with 22L package), with the pricing based on an MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) example of $38,990.

There are more ways than one to make an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio’s photo generate more likes (or angry reactions) on Facebook. It only goes to show how different folks have different tastes.

But if you’re a fan of Photoshop, there’s a Facebook account under the name KhyzySaleem that you can follow to see how an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio could turn out if it swallowed one of its siblings.

In this photo for example, the Giulia has turned into a massively wide monster. Look at the big hips and how it has been enhanced by placing a new set of larger than life fender flares along with ludicrously wide set of wheels to match. To complete the monstrous look, the designer has added a 6-pack exhaust pipes ---enough to put any of its rivals to shame.

How much do you need to shell out to buy a new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia? Well, it depends on the chosen variant and specs of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, although all versions of the premium mid-size sedan represent a fusion of Italian craftsmanship, performance and state-of-the-art technology.

The Italian carmaker is offering the Giulia sedan in three variants – base, Turismo Internazionale (TI) and the range-topping Quadrifoglio. The differences between these models are dictated by the specs, features and equipment found in each variant. To help interested customers in the United States better decide on how to specify their own Giulia, Alfa Romeo has launched an online configurator for the premium sedan. This online configurator also specifies how much each feature would cost the customer.

The base version of the Giulia has a starting price of $37,995, and when the destination charge of $995 is taken into account, the overall price is set at $38,990. What a customer gets is a rear-wheel drive Giulia sedan powered by a 2.0-liter inline-4 direct-injection engine -- paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission -- that delivers 280 hp of max output and 306 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

Italian carmaker Alfa Romeo has its own proud history of classic wins in the world of motorsports. In the 1990s, the Italian carmaker fielded its Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI racer, which in turn grabbed race victories and even championships in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (German Touring Car Championship, or DTM). Thus, Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI racer has been considered as one of the racing icons, even though DTM already folded in 1996.

Now, Rc-workchop -- a visual artist specializing in automotive rendering – has recently posted a rendered image of a modern Alfa Romeo Giulia wrapped in the classic Martini Racing livery that draped the 1996 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI racer. Of course, Rc-workchop implemented a number of visual modifications on the Alfa Romeo Giulia to make it graphically suitable for the DTM. To note, the 155 V6 TI only started donning the sponsorship livery from Martini Racing in the 1995 season of the DTM.

Covered in white finish, the rendering – dubbed as Alfa Romeo Giulia DTM Concept by Rc-workchop – features similar graphics and colors as the 1996 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI DTM. The Alfa Romeo Giulia DTM Concept features the red and blue visual scheme -- with heavy purple line – that starts from the inner edges of the headlamps and partly flows on the bonnet, continues to the sides and ends on the rear lights. The red-blue-purple scheme is also found on the lower section of the Giulia’s sides.

When Alfa Romeo unveiled the new 2017 Giulia Veloce at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October it presented two power options. One is a 2.2-liter diesel engine that provides 210 hp of output at 3,500 rpm and 470 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm. The other is an all-aluminum 2.0-liter powerplant which develops 280 hp of output at 5,250 rpm and 400Nm of torque at 2,250 rpm.

While the 280 hp of output that the 2.0-liter four-cylinder, turbocharged GME T4 engine generates is already a handful, it would not allow the 2017 Giulia Veloce to compete against the likes of the 2017 Audi S4 quattro, 2017 BMW 340i xDrive and 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic. But it seems Alfa Romeo, or parent FCA, would not let it go by without making sure that its Giulia Veloce could properly compete against the aforementioned cars.

This was discovered by Squadra Tuning, a Netherlands-based tuning shop that managed to push the power up on a 2.2-liter diesel-powered Giulia. Browsing through the FCA parts Web site for the Dutch market, Squadra Tuning discovered a more powerful variant of the GME T4 is currently in the works and will be up for fitment on the Giulia Veloce. Squadra took a screenshot of its discovery and posted it on its Facebook page. The image show terms like “CC2.0” which refers to the GME T4, while Vermogen is a Dutch word that could mean “power” or “engine.” The image shows two versions of the GME T4: a 280 PK or hp unit, and a 350 hp variant.

Prices for the new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Quadrifoglio in the US have been officially released. The Giulia sedan starts at $38,990 while the Quadrifoglio is priced at $73,595. Alfa Romeo’s mid variant, or the Turismo Internazionale, comes with a price tag of $40,990.

Only this year, the Quadrifoglio production sedan set an impressive new record at Nurburgring finishing with a total of 7 minutes and 32 seconds lap time. The Quadrifoglio features a 505hp 2.9 litre V6 twin turbo engine that can go from 0-60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds. Meanwhile, both the Turismo Internazionale and the standard Giulia come with a 280hp 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder turbo engine capable of up to 306 lb-ft of torque. This allows the TI and the Giulia to sprint from 0-60 miles per hour in as short 5.1 seconds.

Alfa Romeo’s base model sedan will also feature bi xenon for its headlights, a 6.5-inches infotainment display, 10-way power seat adjustments and leather interior. There is also a Sport Exterior Package that can be bought for an additional $1,250. This package includes colored brake calipers, black trims for the windows, an 18-inch set of wheels along with a “more aggressive" front and rear bumpers.

It was 1956 when Alfa Romeo established the first Veloce. After almost 60 years, customers still crave for Veloce’s same old glory. It looks like they will finally see it all come true. Alfa Romeo comes out with a special version of the Giulia model that goes by the same name. The sporty saloon will be featuring 4WD and a choice between diesel or petrol engines with up to 280hp.

Alfa Romeo will be showcasing the new Giulia Veloce at the 2016 Paris Motor Show happening this week. The exclusive Misano blue colour will appear with the latest 280hp 2L turbo petrol engine while the Silverstone will be presented with the new 210hp, 2.2L diesel powertrain. Basically, the diesel variant is the enhanced version of the sedan’s 2.2L everyday engine. As it turns out, the standard variant is now capable of delivering 347lb ft of torque with an increased horsepower.

These changes go with the new Q4 four-wheel drive system while both engines will be paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. On the other hand, the 280hp 2.0L turbo gasoline is more intense given the high performance saloon’s upgraded design and exceptional handling.

Italy has been home to some of the most prominent names in the automobile manufacturing business. It has seen the growth, struggles and success of some of the world’s biggest car manufacturers – the likes of Lamborghini, Maserati, Ferrari, Pagani, Alfa Romeo and Fiat. So it wouldn’t be surprising if Italy’s streets are dotted with cars bearing the insignias of these world renowned manufacturers. All the more, it wouldn’t be surprising if we find some of the rarest models from any of these manufacturers parked across the Piazza del Popolo.

For citizens of a country where a Lamborghini Aventador or an Enzo Ferrari are usual attractions, it’s not too surprising for the Italian State Police to go on patrol in cars that not many in the world can afford to own. Here are two of Italy’s most trusted police cars, all with complete Italian police livery and gizmos.

The Italian State Police once had a Lamborghini Gallardo fleet which was later replaced by the newer Lamborghini Huracans. The Huracan LP 610-4 Polizia is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine with seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It can produce about 602 horsepower on all-wheel drive. It is embellished in blue and white livery and equipped with four sirens and an LED light bar. Unlike Dubai’s supercar police fleet (which are just for show), the Italian Huracan police armada is fully equipped for duty.

Here comes the first Alfa Romeo model underpinned by the carmaker's new Giorgio lightweight platform – the MY2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio premium sports sedan. This ultra-high performance model blends superb power, remarkable handling and advanced technologies with Italian styling – truly embodying Alfa Romeo’s La meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion).

It also boasts of having the best-in-class power-to-weight ratio from its ultra-lightweight carbon fiber shell. Featuring muscular proportions and a near-perfect 50/50 weight balance, the 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio is really a sight to behold – imposing and menacing.

Reid Bigland, Head of Alfa Romeo Brand at FCA - North America, described the 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio as a new benchmark that represents the next chapter in the brand's 105-year heritage.

Alfa Romeo recently showed the public its latest offering -- the Giulia Quadrifoglio. The unveiling was done at the start of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show held from Sept. 17 to Sept. 27. Created on the rear-wheel drive platform, the Giulia puts its focus on being agile and lighter. The Giulia’s shape is defined by its sporty foundation which also influences the design.

Most of the other parts like the engine, suspension, and brakes, to name a few, are composed of aluminum. Finally the rear crossmember is made from a composite of aluminum and plastic. But that’s not all. The ceramic disc brakes are made of carbon while the Sparco seats are composed of light carbon fiber.

This extra attention given to the materials is the same attitude that was applied on the Giulia’s interior, which is aimed at providing the best in comfort, equipment, quality, and safety.

Next year Alfa Romeo is planning to launch the Giulia sedan, a rival for the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4. Still, it appears that Alfa Romeo wants to take things even further and add a GTA version of the Giula and take on the BMW M3 Sedan.

Just like the other GTA models from Alfa Romeo, the Giulia GTA will arrive with a more aggressive design consisting in a front bumper with big air intakes, the well-known arrow-head front grille and new telephone-dial wheels.

The big surprise will be found under the hood, where the sedan will use a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, an engine derived from the one used by Maserati. The total output delivered by the engine will be between 480 hp and 520 hp.

Replacing the Alfa Romeo 159 is the all-new model, Giulia. Expect the Giulia, which is seen here in its conceptual illustration, to arrive within the next two years. The new model will be based on a new platform developed by Fiat Auto called the C-Evoluzione (C-Evo), which underpins the Bravo.

The platform, which improves handling and ride comfort, is characterized by a longer wheelbase, shorter overhangs and more sophisticated suspension that enable it to be used in more expensive and upmarket cars than the Bravo.

Engineered to be extremely adaptable, the C-platform can be used in multiple new cars with various mechanical configurations.

Later this year, Alfa Romeo's Giulia is expected to arrive. The new model, which will replace the aging 159 range, appears to be a larger version of the Giulietta. This new car will use a modified form of Fiat's C-Evo platform that's used in the smaller Giulietta (and other upcoming midsize Chrysler models). The platform, which will be longer and wider, is set to make the Giulia a true D-segment sedan.

The car will use the same suspension arrangement, with MacPherson struts in front, two-link setup in back, as the Giulia. For now, the C-Evo is a front-wheel-drive architecture, but the platform was designed to accommodate all-wheel-drive setups.

This configuration is seen to be useful for a few high-performance variants under consideration. A Giulia GTA, which has reportedly been approved for production, combines all-wheel-drive with a 300hp, 3.0-liter V-6, and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
