Italian Antonio Giovinazzi will stay at Alfa Romeo for his second Formula 1 season next year. The 21-year-old will again partner veteran Kimi Raikkonen, who will be heading into the final year of his contract in 2020. The decision to retain Giovinazzi probably ends the F1 career of German Nico Hulkenberg, at least for a year. The only seat yet to b...

Okay, so the Maserati GranTurismo convertible rolling off the line today is the same body style that you would have seen debut more than a decade ago.

And in doing so, h...

It’s late on a summer Sunday evening in Turin, a city of one million people located in the northern region of Piedmont. I’m seated in a bar called Affini, in the San Salvario district, on a mission of sorts. I’m sampling the “Nuvolari” – a cocktail created by one of Turin’s foremost mixologists, Michele Marzella – in honour of iconic Italian racer...

Few car manufacturers are the same, with the exception of those directly based on another (Acura and Honda for example). Usually, each country has something special about their vehicles: Germany with their high-quality engineering, Britain for luxury, and America for their muscle. However, what about Italy?

Alfa Romeo builds some of the most interesting, attractive vehicles on the road today. They are true Italian sporting machines that are fun to drive, great to look at, and will easily set you apart from the crowd. Owning and driving an Alfa Romeo is akin to wearing a beautiful pair of Italian shoes. Or wearing a finely styled Italian suit. It is th...
