According to the great Jeremy Clarkson, you can’t be a true petrol-head until you’ve owned an Alfa Romeo. That always posed a problem for many American car enthusiasts. See, Alfa Romeo hasn’t really sold any cars here since the 90’s and even then they were very few and far between. Sure, we got the beautiful 8C Competizione, but that was only for a handful of lucky millionaires. The 4C has already come to the U.S. but even that is too expensive and exclusive for the average buyer. Fortunately, though, for us average ’Mericans, Alfa hasn’t forgotten us. The Giulia is coming in 2015 and it’s a rear-wheel drive sedan, most likely powered by one of Fiat’s turbo four cylinder engines, and a GTA version will follow it across the pond.
The Giulia is going to be the car that Alfa Romeo uses to reintroduce the brand to the US. It should be sized and priced to compete with the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C-Class . The big news however is the announcement of a "hot" version, called the Giulia GTA. The GTA’s main focus will be to take on the M3 and upcoming C63 AMG .
