Electrified, strong as a bear: 8C and GTV back

Balocco, 1. June 2018

Long have we waited to FCA Boss Sergio Marchionne and his various Roadmaps for the restructuring of the group. Now we know: For Alfa Fans to break rosy times. Seven new models with the Cuore Sportivo is to give it until 2022. Yes, of course, including new SUVs and Plug-in Hybrids and all of that stuff. But in this Moment, the Alfisti will have only eyes and ears for two names: 8C and GTV. You come back. And how ...

700-HP mid-engine Supercar

Last we saw the 8C in the year 2010 as a stunningly beautiful sports coupe with a V8 front engine. The new model is born as a two-seater mid-engine super sports car. Velvet Carbon fibre Chassis, a hybridized all-wheel drive and an Output of more than 700 HP. Mamma Mia, Alfa has it in for McLaren 720S and Ferrari 488 Pista. With its own Supercar exotics. The new 8C is set to start in 2022 and a Biturbo gasoline engine (presumably a further development of the 2.9-Liter V6 from the Giulia Quadrifoglio) with an electric motor on the front axle combine. Alfa has confirmed that their new flagship can accelerate in under three seconds to 100 km/h. In addition, the trip into Hybrid-Land is not unique to the PR-trick for the in-house flagship.

GTV is back with 600 HP

Yes, dear Alfa Fans, it is actually even better. Because in addition to the 8C yet another legendary shortcut is allowed to rise again. The speech is from the GTV. A two-door coupe based on the Giulia. The future of GTV gets the 510-HP V6 in the Giulia Quadrifoglio. In addition, provided with an electrical Boost to the front axle. Alfa speaks of 600 HP, a 50:50 weight distribution, and Torque-Vectoring capabilities. The GTV has space for Four and probably a huge amount of potential, C-63, M4, and co. the day.

Six Plug-ins, zero MiTos

Phew, after all of the hot sports car fabric it's time to put down a bit. With the Rest of the Alfa's four-year plan reads quite pleasing. We'll see an Update for the Golf-opponent Giulietta. Although one can only hope that with the "Update," "Complete new model" is meant to be. Furthermore, we can expect Facelifts for Giulia and Stelvio. Similarly, there will be both models for China with long wheelbase. The current Trend, the Italians are also bringing two all-new SUVs. One below and one above the Stelvio positioned. All of this was more or less in sight. More surprising is the announcement effect to each Segment for electrification. A total of six Plug-in Hybrids, want Alfa to 2022 in the Showrooms. In addition, all vehicles on Level 2-or Level 3 - autonomy. Finally, a bad news for all the small Fans: car-The B-Segment remains in the future, apparently, vacant. The somewhat hapless MiTo will be deleted.(sw)
