This past Saturday I had the chance to not only see the new Giulia on a showroom floor but test drive one!
I have not driven a "new" Alfa in over 40 years and it was quite an experience!
Is it all I expected? Yes and more!
Is it a drivers car? Yes, even with the paddles.
Does it feel like an Alfa Romeo? That's subjective but being it's almost 1,000 lbs. heavier than my Spider, I still would have to say Yes.
Is it over priced? With a base of $42,000 I don't thinks so, because even in that trim its so much more than a BMW, Audi, Volvo, Mercedes or any American car in its price range.
Do you need 505 Hp instead of 275? Nope, the 2L is just fine!
Was I a Happy Camper? Like a kid in a toy store!!!!
Get out there and DRIVE !
