    One thousand cars a day sounds like something from the past, but in Fiat Melfi it is today’s reality. The European market is still not in good shape, but sales have been improving for the last few months. […]

    This boot lid of a Fiat 500L is an extraordinary demonstration of Italian technological knowhow. It is made from a new kind of fiber with a vegetable basis and will, according to its manufacturer, be used by […]

    Fiat’s giant van factory Sevel (Società Europea Veicoli Leggeri) in Atessa has achieved a major milestone yesterday with the production of its 5.000.000th unit. The van in question was a white Fiat Ducato […]

    The local government in Turin has succeeded at finding a buyer for De Tomaso. The Italian sports car brand ceased to exist at the beginning of this century and then went through a restart that turned into a […]

    The development of a Fiat can evolve quickly, especially when the platform is already in existence. This is their new C-segment sedan in its proper bodywork being tested in icy conditions. This four-door […]

    The Italian tire giant Pirelli will soon be a multinational led by the Chinese ChemChina. Is it the end of a glorious chapter in the Italian industry’s history? It might be if you think that Volvo is no longer […]

    • Always nice to see new posts on this site! Although seeing the contents of this one doesn’t make this post nice at all. Should have stayed Italian.

    A completely renovated museum plus a new commercial center specifically for Alfa Romeo clients. That’s what the picture above will grow into amongst the debris of the ancient Alfa-factory in Arese. It took a […]

    One might think the recently presented 4C Spider is being tested here, but what’s really being tried out might be something that doesn’t meet the eye. Proof is the centrally located exhaust system. The current […]

    Mail from Maserati. “We would like to invite you on Sunday January 18th to have a glass and a bite in an enjoyable Italian atmosphere. You can also admire the Ghibli, Quattroporte and GranTurismo in all their […]

    Design chief Lorenzo Ramaciotti has given his meaning on the name of Alfa Romeo’s upcoming D-segment model. That one which most enthusiasts have been calling ‘Giulia’ all this time already. An Italian […]

    • I can imagine very well that the name won’t be decided until June. Just remember the last-minute name changes for Mito and Giulietta! On the other hand it could be some PR games, to make the car happen in the media already. :wink:

      Whatever the outcome will be, it would be good to keep the names over a very long time instead of changing with…[Read more]

    • For me Alfa Romeo should stick to names for their core models – Giulietta for the entry level cars (Giulietta Cross for the SUV perhaps and Giulietta Sprint for a small coupe), Giulia for the mid-range cars (with Giulia Cross again for the SUV and Giulia Spider for the sportscar and then either Alfetta or something new for the top of the range…[Read more]

    • Personally I prefer the Giulia name since we Alfisti understand and know the brand. However I am concerned that the US market may not like the sound and may mispronounce it. I would guess that they would prefer a more macho name for a sports sedan. Giulia might sound too feminine.

    It might very well be Fiat’s most important commercial moment in years; the introduction of the 500X in Italian showrooms. Something that hasn’t happened since the long-gone 2007 when the 500 was launched. Now […]

    Lancia has not died out entirely yet as here is the first proof of a facelift for their Ypsilon being in the making. The small Lancia – introduced in 2011 – is the last sparkle of hope for brand enthusiasts […]

    It must be frustrating to the gents of VAG to have noticed that FCA has suddenly started using the indication ‘Q4’ on Maseratis, whereas this used to be for four-wheel drive Alfa Romeos only. The Germans have […]

    Time to zoom in on Lancia in our La Grande Storia-series. It’s a rather remarkable story this. In a manner that ‘The American Dream’ once nearly became reality for Lancia, but that that very same dream now […]

    We already know the Giulietta’s successor is going to sport a rear-wheel drive chassis, but for now we still have to make do with the front wheels putting down the power in Alfa’s pretty hatchback. Not much of […]

    People would declare you mad if you were to claim that Mirafiori will be hiring extra staff in the next few years. But that’s exactly what Sergio Marchionne insinuated in Detroit yesterday, even though he also […]

    Sergio Marchionne thought it time to shake things up for people like us (and in fact the entire press in Detroit) by stating a few things on possible mergers in the future. The CEO mentioned something that is […]

    As you have been able to read on this website already, the Fiat-factory in San Nicola di Melfi is going through busy times. A few days ago it was announced in Detroit that Fiat will need to anticipate by […]

    Maserati ended their Centenaire-year 2014 with tremendous figures. The ultimate Italian luxury brand did remarkably well all over the entire globe and even better in its home country. Throughout 2014 the […]

    The date we already knew from Marchionne, but Reid Bigland has now also announced the location where we can expect to see Alfa Romeo’s new D-segment sedan for the very first time; Arese. He said so during the […]
