Any auto enthusiast who wants to go from zero to the status of celebrated collector can do so in 11 cars flat, as long as they bid furiously at the RM...

Rumors of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s death may be greatly exaggerated: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recently filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the long-running Italian car nameplate.

Around the halfway-point on the drive along the infamous Stelvio Pass, we encounter a meteorological metaphor. In Bormio, the town where we start the drive, the weather is clear and sunny. At the summit, some 20 kilometres up the highest paved road in the Alps, the sky is bright again. In between these two altitudinal extremes, we discover a thick...

For some of us of a certain age, at least in North America, our first exposure to Alfa Romeo was probably seeing one on the screen, likely The Graduate, the 1967 now-classic dramedy starring a young Dustin Hoffman and his character’s 1600 Duetto Spider. Personally, I was too busy immersing myself in the minutia that was Detroit’s wild and wonderful...

Some people buy a new car, some buy a used car. Nicholas Gallman buys an interim car. That’s what Gallman called the Audi S4 he picked up two years ago. It was just a $50,000 placeholder until he could get his hands on the Alfa Romeo Giulia that hit U.S. dealers a few months ago. “From the first time I saw the concept, I just fell in love with it,”...

The reintroduction of Alfa Romeo into the United States market was gradual, calculated and effective. FCA decided to reacquaint U.S. drivers with the iconic Italian brand first as a high performance nameplate with its first model before adding a strong luxury vibe for the American motorist with the second. Now, the third and latest import in this v...

Steve McQueen famously said: “Life is racing. Everything else is just waiting.” In June, more than 100 drivers and their crews of the Italian motoring club proved the actor right. The Modena Cento Ore, an annual road rally race through the Northern Italian “Motor Valley” that lies between the Adriatic Sea and the Mediterranean, ended as per traditi...
