    Robert De Niro is often found spending his elderly days in Italy and has now announced – from the peninsula – that he’s been given the honor of playing Enzo Ferrari in a new movie. None other than Clint […]

  • That’s correct spiko. I’ve been delaying replacing my Delta until the ‘Giulia’ comes out, but I hope they will be able to start deliveries early next year. Otherwise I’ll have to look elsewhere as well, I’m afraid.

    Just for a moment it seemed like the sales numbers of Maserati were stagnating or even decreasing, but the short-lived dip early this year is perfectly explainable. The production was ceased for a moment in […]

    CEO Sergio Marchionne was in the FCA engine factory in Termoli yesterday and talked about a new 4 and 6 cylinder engine, both specifically developed for future Alfa Romeo models. Marchionne was actually in […]

    The Alfa Romeo ‘Giulia’ – though it seems more and more like that won’t be its name – will sport astonishing numbers and will amaze the public. That’s briefly summarized what Reid Bigland had to say at the New […]

    • Huh? The Giulia IS the D-segment Alfa! 5-series, A6 and E-class are E-segment.

    Italy as an important basis for the export and Alfa Romeo as one of the ideal trademarks. That’s how Alfredo Altavilla expressed that the home country will remain FCA’s most important location for innovation […]

    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 […]
