rough Translation:

CASSINO (FR)

Probably you will not be called Giulia. Meanwhile in Cassino it was born the first car of the new model Alfa Romeo, ready for the presentation of June 24 at the Museum of Alfa Arese.

Last Friday the car was completed - the red color chosen, according to initial rumors -. Yesterday the trial on the reels. This is the first of a series of eight sedans. After submission to Arese, will all be on display at Expo 2015.

The start actual production, with the ramping up of production lines and possible new hires, along the lines of what has already happened in Melfi, there will presumably from the month of September. Ten days ago, Fiat Chrysler has signed with the trade unions (all, including Fiom, albeit at a separate table) agreement for the one-year extension of the interventions of extraordinary layoff for the more than 4 thousand employees of Cassino.

In recent weeks we are setting up the lines in view of the start of new productions, Fca not made official the amount of investments in the pole Lazio, but should reach the billion euro, in line with the investment made in Melfi. Today in Cassino produces the Alfa Romeo Giulietta: 380 cars per day, down from last year, while the market expects the new models.

The pole of Cassino will therefore be the center from which the basis for the business plan to relaunch Alfa Romeo announced by Sergio Marchionne about a year ago. The new sedan of the snake and Juliet should alongside a mini suv Alfa Romeo, expected for the first half of 2016. The SUV Alfa Romeo, however, may be concerned the plant in Mirafiori. But the plan Alfa Romeo - eight new models by 2018 - could play a fundamental role Pomigliano, where today are produced Panda. The first was the establishment of the new FCA, the first to have absorbed the dictates of the World Class Manufacturing, might, near the end of the cycle Panda, accommodate new products to brand Alfa Romeo.

So we have the announcement in June, with, perhaps, production by the end of the year.

Allow about 2 years to iron out the teething troubles and it will be just in time for my next but one new car!:biglaugh:

My thoughts exactly. :evil:

More precisely, I was thinking "I need to get my S60 to last another 3 years, then I might be able to switch to a used Giulia... on which early prod issues have been solved." :smoker:

Then my follow-up thought was "Well there will be used Jaguar XEs for sale at that point too". Giulia better be good!!!

I guess that RHD versions would be slightly behind in terms of the schedule, probably arriving here early 2016. By which time I'll just have less than 3 years to go with this car before I can consider getting one. Ironically, that is exactly the same length of time I thought I'd be waiting for this model to arrive when I bought my then new Ti in late 2008! At least it should be on the market by then.



...............but you never know with Alfa!

Full marks to AR for seemingly keeping wraps on the design - I think it genuinely will be a proper launch.

On a purely selfish note I still harbour hopes that they'll make a late name change, just because the availability of a new Giulia will make searching for parts for the original Giulia much harder on internet searches.

And I just realised that (I think) this will be the first new Giulia launched since my Berlina in 1967, might take mine down to the dealers at UK launch just to reflect on that and get a photo next to a new one.

Ritardo has an appropriate ring to it.
