I realize this is not an Alfa Romeo forum, but I figure being a Fiat enthusiasts site there has to be a lot of affinity with Alfa Romeos.

This car is hawt!

We've been chatting about this over at the Giulia Forum. I also thought I signed in to the wrong forum...

3.6 second 0-60 time! Also love the two-seater approach with the shedded weight.

I really like the looks of the front. Really mean looking. Not the biggest fan of that wing though...

I'm not a fan of the rear wheel fender extensions. It makes the car look shorter and stockier, not long and lean. Also don't like the additional triangle decal below the four leaf clover. Clutters the look.

I'll be replacing my wife's/our main car with a QV this spring/summer. 503 hp should be enough.

Speaking strictly from a luxury brand marketing perspective, Alfa Romeo is doing the right thing by adding a flagship sedan at the top of the lineup.

A common mistake struggling luxury automakers make is add lower priced models and versions to try to boost sales. While that approach usually works for a year or two, eventually ends up cheapening the brand.

Adding a flagship vehicle, on the other hand, heightens the desirability of the brand and, by extension, of all the models on the portfolio.

The luxury market is the only place where we have evidence that the “trickle down” effect actually works.

that wing is awful. But the front/ profile looks awesome. Love the Giulia.

Will be swapping my 124 for a 280hp Giulia Veloce sometime this year once the right one pops up!

It must be good to be worthy of two triangular fender badges. I suppose one like the below would be too heavy to find a home.

At least I know how to properly pronounce "Quadrafoglio" and "Superleggera" now. Also to say "GT (ah) rather than GT (ay).

The final quote is poignant, "Thanks for your passion that drives our dreams". I always considered it the other way around, without their passion I wouldn't be able to dream.

Would be more interested in two door GTV, but modding Giulia was definitely reasonable and simple to execute idea for Alfa Romeo
