Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has major ambitions regarding its soon to be resurrected Alfa Romeo brand and it all comes down to the expected success of one model – the Giulia midsize sedan.
But the brand needs more than one model to survive the highly competitive luxury segment and the Italian-American parent has planned a massive offensive. Even more interesting would be to have a model above the Giulia – which competes with the likes of the BMW 3 Series – to serve as a true flagship and impose the brand among the high rollers. Even better would be to top that out with a Quadrifoglio performance model that could ultimately compete against the BMW M5. That’s exactly what flamed the imagination of renown renderer Theophilus Chin, which has used the Maserati Ghibli as the basis for a hypothetical Alfa Romeo Giorgio in Quadrifoglio livery – a successful competitor for the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG and Audi RS6.
We can see the base Maserati Ghibli has morphed into a true Alfa Romeo here based on inspiration coming from the Giulia Quadrifoglio for an end result that looks really promising. It would tick all the boxes in our mind: stunning Italian design, lightweight chassis (with expertise from Maserati and maybe even Ferrari) as well as the elegant rear-wheel drive setup. Alfa Romeo’s upcoming plans include the launch of a crossover, a full size flagship sedan, an even larger SUV, a new GTV as well as a new Giulietta compact. The smaller MiTo appears at this point to be doomed while the sporty 4C appears to have a somehow undecided future.
