"Interesting see that the one who is bored contributes with nothing, just wants the info flow their way! What ever"
Personally, I find the ongoing discussion about the origins of the hot Giulia engine to be relatively esoteric, limited to a few, although not boring. It is interesting, and fitting to be in the BB.
We are free to express an opinion (clearly based on your own stated), which is felt by many just as you are to express yours. No dissing intended or necessary.
Just saying, it would seem that most potential customers of the new Alfa are likely waiting for a midpriced, midpowered version, that ultra high powered versions are limited by finances or desires to just a few customers, just as the 4C has been, although I admit that in it's 4 door configuration, it can be more practical in that respect. Most of those desired customers would most likely deem their purchase versions as pretty sporty and fun.
Thus, the big engine is interesting in design and output but not likely the reason for most of the potential sales for a sporty sedan.
