Спортивная модификация Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce 2016 – это один из самых красивых и стильных хэтчбеков С-класса в мире. История модели насчитывает уже более 60 лет, и запомнилась тем, что стала первым массовым автомобилем итальянского производителя.
Экстерьер спорткара отличается от стандартной версии оригинальным задним диффузором, боковыми зеркалами, окрашенными в чёрный цвет, и соответствующими шильдиками на передних крыльях. Кроме того, у него немного обновлённые бампера и другие боковые «юбки».
Оптика осталась прежней – с теми же яркими ходовыми огнями. Ручки задних дверей также спрятаны в окантовках окон. Не изменились и колёсные арки, увеличивать которые любят многие производители при выпуске спортивной модификации. Однако хэтчбек получил новые 18-дюймовые диски.
Кузов лишён агрессивных линий. Передняя часть имеет обтекаемую и закруглённую форму. Привлекают внимание решётка радиатора в виде перевёрнутого треугольника и сужающиеся к бамперу выштамповки на капоте. Сзади автомобиль кажется меньше, чем он есть на самом деле. Во многом из-за узких фар, которые почти соприкасаются на двери багажного отделения.
Что касается технических характеристик, то новая Giulietta Veloce комплектуется турбированным 1,7-литровым мотором, развивающим мощность в 243 лошадиные силы и крутящий момент в 340 Нм. В паре с ним работает 6-ступенчатый «робот» с двойным сцеплением. Разгон до первой сотни составляет всего 6,3 секунды, а максимальная скорость равна 247 км/ч. Совсем неплохо для автомобиля весом почти 1,5 тонны.
Габариты не отличаются от стандартной версии. Длина спортивного хэтчбека составляет 435 см, ширина – 180 см. Высота кузова – почти 1,5 м. Багажный отсек вмещает 350 л, а топливный бак – 60 л.
Подвеска у спорткара получила другие настройки и ряд изменений. Это позволило улучшить управляемость, особенно на больших скоростях и при прохождении поворотов. Также на спортивную «джульетту» установили тормозную систему Brembo и другую выхлопную систему с двумя патрубками.
В салоне появились анатомические спортивные кресла, несколько изменённый селектор трансмиссии и модернизированное рулевое колесо с усечённым нижним ободом. Все кожаные детали интерьера украшены красной контрастной прострочкой. Передняя панель получила отделку из искусственного углеродного волокна.
В остальном дизайн новинки не отличается от обычной версии. Приборная панель с двумя «колодцами» и бортовым экраном с красной подсветкой. На центральной консоли всё тот же экран мультимедийной системы Uconnect с поддержкой Facebook, Reuters, Twitter и пр. Чуть ниже – блок управления раздельным климатом с тремя большими поворотными кнопками.
К отделке салона есть небольшие претензии. В основном они касаются жёсткого пластика и больших зазоров между деталями. Тогда как в плане эргономике и комфорта претензий к итальянскому хэтчбеку быть не может. Есть у «заряженной» версии Alfa Romeo Giulietta и все необходимые опции: электропривод и обогрев зеркал и сидений, электроусилитель руля, датчик дождя, люк, круиз-контроль и мн. др.
Едва ли спортивный хэтчбек будет официально поставляться в Россию. К сожалению, в нашей стране модели Alfa Romeo не пользуются большой популярностью.
Стоимость Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce на родине почти 35 000 евро. Довольно приличная сумма за топовую версию, которая обязательно придётся по вкусу многим любителям компактных спорткаров.
Update 8/27/18: Has anyone seen this car in the last 8 years? Side grills have a Wallace and Gromit feel I didn’t notice before.
Update 7/1/10: This car was sold for $7100 after 21 bids were placed. Not such a bad deal for what appears to be a very complete, original and solid project car with a bad nose job to fix.
Giulietta Sprint 10102 22315. This car is on eBay right now out of New York or possibly Montreal. Other than some unfortunate modifications it’s a pretty original solid example. Would be kind of fun to leave the modifications and use it as is for a few years to upset concours judges and the like.
Kind of has a Facel Vega feel or maybe something garish from Ghia on a 1900 platform -but interpreted by a drunk from a small picture in the back of a magazine. That Bertone badge placement next to the passenger side headlamp is really horrible.
7/20/2018: This car is back on eBay after nearly two years. Where is the market now? If I was, err, well, actually no – there isn’t much of a circumstance where I would buy this because I have a lot of projects I could do in 20 minutes I can’t seem to find time for. Seller has an 80% feedback rating. Does that matter? Not if you do the homework you should do regardless of the sellers feedback.
Someone is going to buy this and it will be a lot better car than it seems like it is in the pictures.
11/04/2016 (sorry euro-date folks): Giulietta Spider Veloce 10107 1495*11643, 00111*30278 (1960 TI engine). From the Daniel J. Rapley seemingly never ending stockpile of Giulietta projects and available now on eBay is this 1960 Spider Veloce. Original engine is missing, but a Veloce item is said to be available. Car is complete and straight enough to be a good candidate, but a chunk of change will be required to get the rockers in good shape. Why do I call it a long stalled project? That silver respray appears to be quite old, and yet never to have seen the light of motoring day.
One wonders where this has been hiding? I am frequently surprised by the continual coming-out-of-the-woodwork of Giuliettas. This car looks decent at first fluch, but the rockers are pretty bad, and when you dig into the rockers – you are starting from the bottom.
Giulietta Sprint Veloce Alleggerita 750E 1493*04159, 1315*30598. RM Sotheby’s will be auctioning this charming fellow at Monterey this year. I can’t say much except wow. I wonder when a Giulietta like this will break free of the “the last one sold for X, so this one should sell for X + 10%” thinking and sell for an unexpectedly large sum because two really rich guys just want it, value be damned. Any of you want to mentor me in starting a business? Being a Technical Program Manager in Semiconductor Capitol Equipment is just not cutting it if I can’t make a play for this.
When I was in Italy I kept an eye on the sky just after sunset. I can’t help but think that the Bertone palette was all about the evening sky. I’d be afraid to drive a car this low in the back. I like.
Giulia Sprint Speciale 10121*38XXXX. This car is on eBay right now. It is among the worst maybe sort of still viable cars I’ve had the pleasure of writing about. I saw this car in person maybe 8 years ago in southern California. I have some pictures somewhere from then, but can’t seem to find them. It is very rusty, and very crunched. Come to think of it I sourced the hood for this car that you see on it and I a few other parts. Netflix or Amazon should sponsor a show rebuilding a car in this condition. Anyhow.
Incomplete, rusty and crunched. Any one of those three is a challenge. Any two should give one pause, and three should cause one to run a four minute mile in the opposite direction forthwith. At least it has its drivers side marker light. Continue reading
Giulietta Sprint 10102 1493*22352. This car is available now on eBay from longtime classic car dealer Gullwing Motor Cars out of Astoria New York. It is a fine looking driver condition Sprint, with room for improvement – mainly little detailing jobs, especially in the engine compartment. The description says it has a Sprint Veloce engine installed but the picture of the engine compartment shows a single down draft carburetor, cast iron exhaust manifold and other normale spec items, so either the block is Veloce and the rest is not, the pictures are out of date, or they are confused. Asking price is $56,500. If it does have a Veloce engine installed, and includes the original as stated, this is probably a decent deal.
Good looking car. It looks like a recent European import to me based on the front marker lights and the overall appearance. Rims are Borrani – considered more desirable than Fergat rims.
The Borgo Di Carpiano is an Agriturismo inhabiting a restored castle/church/village in the hills between Gubbio, and Perugia. There was only one room open for one night while we would be in the area, and it was a bit of a drive from Gubbio, but we decided the drive was worth the experience – especially considering you typically have to book a year or more in advance to stay.
The buildings were impeccably restored over seven years from a ruin, and every detail is perfect. The owner Riccardo is a great car guy with a collection of Fiats. We talked cars as best we could, and I learned that the Borgo is a destination for lot of car enthusiasts from the US and UK. I am probably ruining my chances of being able to get another room, but then, you are probably going to go to Milan or Rome if you go to Italy, so we shall see.
Umbrian destinations all seem to be this evocative rough stone construction. You really feel like you’re somewhere else when you’re here. I love the ancient Italian door. I’ll be posting a big set of Italian door pictures when I get back.
We drove from San Sebastiano Curone to Gubbio yesterday – lot of driving, but worth the effort. Gubbio is a very old city in Umbria, it evokes a heavy sense of life and history I am not used to. A feeling of the small cycles, days, moons, seasons, lives, centuries, civilizations contained in many many many years, and what can be achieved by generations of hands altering the land. That clock still runs, sons and daughters take the places of mothers and fathers, over and over until whatever end if any there will ever be.
Not a lot of old cars on the streets of Italy, perhaps the message got around that they ought to be preserved indoors, out of the elements. What I have seen are well cared for drivers. I’ll post some here and… I am now, after years of probably stupid reluctance on Instagram. There is probably a link I can embed, but I haven’t figured it out. Search giuliettasdotcom and ask to follow!
Rufus thought this Citroen H van espresso bar was neat. Only really good coffee I got in Annecy. Not that the other cups were bad just nothing exceptional.
Inside the new Giulietta there are revised seat upholsteries, dashboard and door panel finishes, a Úconnect infotainment system now with smartphone-enabled LIVE services (music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news with Reuters, Facebook Check-In and Twitter, plus eco:Drive and my:Car services and traffic updates for navigation-equipped models) and, of course, the new Alfa Romeo logo on the steering wheel boss and upholstery (depending on version).Also debuting on the new Giulietta is Alfa Performance, a new service specifically created to enhance the driving experience. Úsing an array of digital gauges and instruments, drivers can control the main parameters of the car, measure their performance using special timers and see driving statistics on their smartphone, in addition to receiving real-time driving tips. The service is available on Úconnect 6.5' Radio Nav LIVE.
Únder the bonnet there's now the option of combining the 120hp 1.6-litre JTDM-2 turbo diesel engine with the Alfa TCT twin dry-clutch transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) Employing second-generation MultiJet technology with a variable geometry turbo charger, this engine produces 120hp at 3,750rpm and an impressive 320Nm of torque from just 1,7450rpm and, when paired with Alfa Romeo's quick-shifting and smooth Alfa TCT transmission, it can be used as a full automatic (with its responsiveness and shift patterns adjusted via the three-mode Alfa DNA drive selector, along with the power steering assistance, ESC and Q2 electronic differential settings and throttle and brake responsiveness) or as a full manual, either by slotting the gear selector into its sequential gate or by using the steering wheel paddle shifters.This engine and transmission combination has a top speed of 121mph and can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 10.2 seconds, while its official combined cycle fuel-economy and emissions figures matches those of the manual version, returning 74.3 MPG (3.8 l/100 km) and producing just 99 g/km of CO2.In the ÚK, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta's model range features five trim levels: Giulietta, Giulietta Super, Giulietta Tecnica, Giulietta Speciale and Giulietta Veloce.

The official debut of new Alfa Romeo Giulietta was staged simultaneously yesterday at an international event called 'Fuel your Instinct' in five cities across Europe. The central event was held in the Alfa Romeo Museum (La Macchina del Tempo / The Time Machine) in Arese, headlined by a special DJ set by British singer and songwriter Skin, with simultaneous musical events in Turin, Paris, Madrid and Frankfurt, all featuring high-profile local DJs, musicians and celebrities. More than 5,000 employees were invited to FCA's HQ in Turin to enjoy the preview reveal of the new car followed by an unforgettable evening of music and dance, while the videos employees made with the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta have taken Facebook and Instagram by storm and turned the employees into the faces of the new model.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta goes on sale on April 1 with prices starting from just £18,450 OTR. Full pricing details will be announced closer to the car's ÚK launch.Source - Alfa Romeo
The refreshed Alfa Romeo Giulietta hatchback has been revealed, and benefits from a light facelift, new trim classifications and the addition of the TCT dual-clutch gearbox as an option for the fuel-sipping 1.6 JTDm engine.
Cosmetic changes on the outside are focused on the nose, where there’s a new honeycomb grille, black bumper inserts and very subtle changes to the headlamp and fog light surrounds - all of which bring the Giulietta closer to the styling of the long-awaited Giulia saloon that’s expected towards the end of the year. Inside, updates include new seats and a matte black dash insert.
There are seven trim levels available on the Giulietta at present: Progression, Distinctive, Exclusive, Sprint, Business, QV Line and Quadrifoglio Verde. All are replaced in the new range, which references Alfa nameplates of days gone by. The entry-level model is now simply called Giulietta, with Super, Tecnica, Speciale and Veloce above it.
All benefit from the newly upgraded Uconnect infotainment system that now includes smartphone integration for online services such as music streaming, news, social media and traffic updates for cars equipped with sat-nav. A leather steering wheel becomes standard, while 16in alloys, Bluetooth, air-con and the Q2 brake-based front differential are carried over from the existing basic kit list.
Super trim adds dual-zone climate control, cruise control, front fog lights and upgraded seats, and an optional Lusso pack adds leather upholstery, aluminium kick plates and a larger infotainment screen (up from 5.0in to 6.5in) with sat-nav.
The old Business Edition trim is replaced by Tecnica to include practical touches such as sat-nav and front and rear parking sensors, while sporty Speciale brings stiffer suspension, Brembo brakes, aggressive exterior styling touches, 18in alloys, sat-nav and interior embellishments such as leather and Alcantara seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.
