Alfa Romeo To Supercar...?

Survey Says : Toyota


Absolutely a current Camry front bumper and headlight...the running light in the bumper has been removed, but that bumper cut is unmistakeable.

Not even close. Bonnet shut line is different, headlight washer under the headlight and the location of the panel line from the headlight to the arch.

I think you'll finds its an Alfa Giulia and the article will be on the new Entertainment Car contract.

Pretty hilarious when you have marques scrambling over being the entertainment car when they are dropping like flies from the actual races.

Not the Entertainment Car according to their FB post - it's about a racing entry:

In today's AUTO ACTION, our own Paul Gover reports that ALFA ROMEO is seriously studying a start in Supercars.
AUTO ACTION can report that the program is built around the all-new Giulia QV road car that lands in Australia in February.
The Giulia QV will be an ideal platform for Supercars as it's fitted with a new-age V6 twin-turbo engine that was inspired by sister company Ferrari and could be tweaked to suit the upcoming Gen2 regulations, just as Holden is doing with the powerplant it will fit into the NG Commodore for Supercars competition from 2018.
“We are looking at all the available opportunities for Alfa Romeo that would fit the brand DNA. It is a racing brand and it’s got a racing heritage,” says the newly-appointed CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in Australia, Steve Zanlunghi.
“No news to report but we are looking at a lot of different things.”
But FCA is well past looking, and AUTO ACTION can reveal there were secret meetings during the Sydney 500 that included a briefing from Supercars’ managing director Matt Braid on the entry requirements and set-up costs for a front-line touring car program.

I LOVE Alfas and would love to see a Giulia on the track but if they end up in V8 supercars, I'll dance the funky chicken on the grid at Bathurst in a tutu.

I'd love to see it happen, but I'm not convinced it will.

Promise

Will be interesting if the Alfa happens.

Good brand to be trying to participate, genuine opportunity to promote a brand that need promoting

every body should own at least 1 Alfa in their life
