First it was the Alfa Romeo 156, next came theAlfa Romeo 159, and now plans for the Alfa Romeo Giulia are full speed ahead. Based on a longer and wider platform than the 159, the Giulia will have a McPherson front axle with a twin-link rear suspension and will feature the new Multiair V6 engines. This engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and will produce up to 300bhp. The vehicle will come as a front wheel drive, but will have the platform to support four wheel drive.

We are happy to hear that the Giulia will not come in a hatchback like its brothers, the MiTo and Milano. We are not big fans of hatchbacks and we can safely say that neither are most Americans considering Alfa Romeo’s decision to not offer the MiTo and Milano in the US. Instead Alfa Romeo has decided to make its US comeback with the Alfa Romeo Giulia being offered as a four-door saloon and a five-door sport wagon. Renderings, like the one shown above, show a more rounded, modern shape to the new Giulia as opposed to the boxier shapes of the previous Giulia models.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia will be introduced to European markets in 2011 with an American debut in 2012. Alfa Romeo has plans to sell 100,000 units per year and is even considering a lightweight Q2 350bhp Autodelta edition.

The Giulia GTAm was the winner of the 1970 European Touring Car Championship, driven by Toine Hezemans of the Netherlands.

I understand the 1750 being first, but the lack of Montreal and 33 Stradale is disturbing.

2010 is a very long time for its debut in the states. But I guess it can be worth the wait but one of the concerns would be, what are the possible competition for the car by that time? I’m sure that hybrids but supercars are available that time and I don’t know if people will still want Alfa Romeo by then.

Looks very aggressive and damn fast, a 300Hp is just reasonable but still Focus RS500 is wayu better.
