ITALIAN FLAIR AND FIERY NATURE IN MANY GUISES
Alfa Romeo has a history going back to around 1910. The company was originally called A.L.F.A. (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) before the name was changed when Nicola Romeo bought into the company. Today, the Alfa Romeo Company is a wholly owned Fiat subsidiary alongside Fiat Cars, Fiat Commercials and Lancia.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia was one of the great cars of the 20th Century. It was only manufactured from 1962 to 1978. However, the name was reintroduced in 2015.
The Giulia was offered as a lightweight high powered executive saloon, as a spider and as a coupe. The reintroduced Giulia Quadrifoglio of 2015 features lightweight Carbon fiber bonnet and roof, rear wheel drive and front engine (FR) which was so designed to have a 50/50 distribution of power and weight. This improves handling of the vehicle.
Note the four leaf clover on the right-hand fender of the White Giulia TI Super. That was an indication that this particular Alfa was an upgraded model such as the “AMG” of Mercedes. That same logo appears on the 2015 Giulia Quadrifoglio below.
We hope to see a large number of Alfa Romeos on the 31st August 2019.
The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion.
