Now Alfa Romeo has an SUV, and we have so many questions

Alfa Romeo may not be the first automaker you associate with an SUV, but the crossover craze waits for no-one and the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the result. Launched today at the LA Auto Show, the luxury SUV takes the styling of the Giulia sedan and inflates it for the elevated driving position crossover fans lust after. Of course, since this is an Alfa we're talking about, there's a performance option for those with speed in mind.

2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Review – Italy’s bad-attitude baby supercar

2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Review – Italy’s bad-attitude baby supercar

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider has a secret. It's not particularly good at keeping it either. You see, this is a car that honestly doesn’t care if you have a problem with its 'lack' of power steering (demanding strength beyond strength when parking), or its ultra-wide door sills (that require you to fold your body like a jackknife to slide behind the wheel), or even its miniscule trunk (truly just a plastic bin tucked behind the motor that's barely big enough to store the fussy fabric roof that you need to snap-and-tug on and off all on your own).

Alfa Romeo is coming for your 5 Series

Look out, Germany: storied Italian automaker Alfa Romeo is coming for your 5 Series, E-Class, and A6 with a bigger version of the Giulia sedan. The new car isn't likely to show up until 2018 at the earliest, but it may very well be worth waiting for over the usual midsize luxury options from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi.

This 505hp Alfa Romeo Giulia is only for Italy’s police force

Italian car-maker Alfa Romeo has just unveiled a special edition of its latest 4-door sedan: the 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio (QV). But not just anyone will be getting behind the wheel of this hot ride, no matter how deep their pockets are. Alfa Romeo has given two of these QV models to Italy's Carabinieri, the country's national and military police force. Not only does the sedan get 505-horsepower from a 2.9-liter, twin-turbo six-cylinder engine, but it comes with a manual transmission. Oh be still my heart.

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: Ferrari heart, furious face

Some cars you suspect want to maim you when you get behind the wheel; the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio telegraphs that intention right from the parking lot. Intensely aggressively styled, Alfa's new sports sedan dips a greedy paw into stablemate Ferrari's parts bin, and it's well worth it: the flagship Giulia Quadrifoglio musters a heady 505 HP.

This is Alfa Romeo’s stunning Giulia

This is Alfa Romeo’s stunning Giulia

What happens when you give a skunkworks team of engineers, designers, and stylists the chance to create an Italian sports sedan? The new Alfa Romeo Giulia is the answer. Unveiled today, the compact four-door packs up to 510 HP from a turbo V6 borrowing tech from stablemate Ferrari, a choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and an aggressive - and distinctive - body with plenty of carbon fiber and aluminum to keep curb weight down.

Alfa prices up its stunning 4C Spider

It's the price-tag fans of droptop Italian exotica have been waiting for. Alfa Romeo has finally slapped a sticker price on the windshield of the 4C Spider, the convertible version of the aggressively-styled two seater shown off back in January at the Detroit Auto Show. Whimsical European-style motoring doesn't come cheap, though, with the 4C Spider carrying a hefty $10,000 premium over its hardtop sibling.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Review

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Review

The Alfa Romeo 4C is spectacular, an exotic “baby Ferrari” that has taken me from point A to point B with more than the normal diversions in-between, and with a permanent grin from ear to ear. First astonishing US drivers in rarefied (and, at nearly $70k, more expensive) Launch Edition form, but finally available with a base price starting at $53,900, it's Alfa’s triumphant - and niche - return stateside. Achingly pretty but as demanding as a thoroughbred, only 1,200 Alfa 4C's will be imported from Maserati’s Modena plant. Should one be on your driveway?

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider ditches roof, cranks up exhaust

Chopping the top off an existing car is one of the easiest ways to expand your range, but when you're starting with the Alfa Romeo 4C, a Spider version is still plenty interesting. The Italian marque brought a bright, custardy-yellow 4C Spider along to Detroit today, giving the convertible its first showing (and, perhaps ironically, with snow and sleet figuring significantly outside in Wintery Michigan) as well as its carbon fiber trimmings, ahead of its arrival at US dealerships this coming summer.

Alfa Romeo unveils 4C Spider

Alfa Romeo unveils 4C Spider

Alfa Romeo has rolled out a new version of its sexy sports car called the 4C. When the 4C first launched it was a coupe only and the new version of the car is a Spider. It is a targa top more than a full on convertible with a roof section that appears to be made of cloth of some sort that can be removed when you want to let the sun in. A carbon fiber hard top is available as well.
