Exciting times ahead for Alfa Romeo
It was recently announced that Alfa Romeo would be utilising their unique relationship with Ferrari (both brands owned by the Fiat group) by obtaining a Ferrari V6 for one of their future models. But, unfortunately, not much more than that is actually known about this particular car. However, it does make for exciting reading, and makes you wonder what else can be expected from the iconic Italian car manufacturer in the near future?
Back in 2014 Harald Wester, the CEO of Alfa Romeo, promised to bring the Italian brand back to the forefront of popular culture with a new product range that would rival that of some of the leading German brands as early as 2018.
Following that, the word through the grapevine was that the next product to come off the Alfa assembly line would in fact be the Giulia (pictured above) a mid-sized sporting saloon to rival the ever popular BMW 3 Series.
There is also talk that Alfa Romeo will be launching a flagship full-sized saloon to rival the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E Class.
And according to a few online sources, Alfa Romeo’s first-ever crossover will soon debut at a major auto show with a planned 2016 release. The new crossover doesn’t currently have a name, but there are a few spy images knocking about on the internet of the supposed vehicle.
At this stage, however, all we can do is speculate as nothing has officially been confirmed by Alfa Romeo. But one thing is for sure, an Alfa Romeo with a Ferrari powertrain will no doubt wet the appetite of not just the hardcore Alfaholics, but the masses too. You can rest assured that Jordans of Hull, East Yorkshire will communicate any developments as soon as anything concrete is heard from the manufacturer.
