Unfortunately it’s indeed surreal – as in a rendering provided by a digital artist – but it still reveals how great the new Giulia would look if the company decided to take on the competition from Audi, Mercedes and BMW.
Alfa Romeo was highly successful back in the 1990s in touring car racing, and the classic Martini Racing never gets old when viewed on Italian performance machines – oh how we love the Lancia Delta as well. The modern Giulia has been reworked with the classic Martini Racing livery from the 155 V6 TI – and also given all it needs to compete in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM). The 155 V6 TI was a touring car racing hero in Europe back in the day – using a high-revving 2.5-liter V6 and an all-wheel drive system it achieved victories against competitive rivals from Mercedes and Opel.
In case we remember correctly, the first units of the 155 TI V6 were raced in a bright red Alfa Corse livery with the brand’s famous emblem in white on the hood – and then Martini came in as a sponsor, thus the cars were adorned with the legendary red, white, blue, and purple livery, as seen in this render. For now chances are slim that Giulia will make its predecessors proud and reach the tracks – even though its Quadrifoglio version has been capable of claiming not once, but twice the record for the fastest production series sedan around the iconic Nurburgring.
