Alfa Romeo, returned to the U.S. marketplace following a nearly 20 year hiatus, having long been the heart and soul of the European auto industry. The first model to return to the North American marketplace was the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Sport Coupe followed by a convertible version – the 4C Spider. Both were two-seaters that were inspired by the timeless 33 Stradale. Next came the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia, a luxurious ultra high performance four door sedan with the capability of challenging the likes of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz in their respective categories. The Giuilia stable consisted of three models: the base Giulia; the Giulia Ti; and the halo model and flagship hot rod Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
