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...

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...

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio performance crossover follows the 4C and 4C Spider two-seat sports kart and the Giulia midsize sedan in the Italian brand’s return to the U.S. after a nearly 25-year absence.
