Spyshots: Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spotted in America!
text size: A- A+
Since diesels are unlikely to be the engines used for Alfa Romeo’s return to the US, we have to look at the gasoline range. In Europe, this starts with a 1.4-liter 120 hp, but we can forget about that. This only leaves the 170 hp version as the likely candidate. There’s also a 1.750-liter turbo with 235 in the hot QV version of the car. This would allow Alfa to put its best foot forward when it’s reintroduced in the US next year.
Fiat Group CEO Sergio Marchionne has made it clear that Alfa will be built in the US and exported back to Europe. So they might introduce the two Tigershark units from the Dordge Dart.

This is some test mule.. the 235bhp model has twin exhausts, side skirts, chrome wing mirrors and a darkened head light treatment. This car doesnt match the description of the top of the range Giulietta QV. If it was the QV it would have QV badges on the car too.

yster: Yes, I know what a QV looks, like, we tested it after all. This mule does look like it has twin exhausts, but yes, the sills are missing and the suspension is high. Bodges don't belong on a mule: this doesn't even have the alfa badged on it

Saw a pair of these in Kingman, AZ on Route 66 yesterday. One of them was having mechanical problems in the NAPA parking lot.
