Alfa's car christening department has gone a little mad.

First, with their MiTo, now the Giulietta. Bringing back the illustrious and beautiful name from the 70s.

 

I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I think the name is brilliant! It's just a feeling that they were trying a little too hard with the Mito. But the Guilietta.. that sounds fantastico!

The 147's replacement will be showcased at the 2010 Geneva Motor show and this will only be available with 5 doors. So obviously it's meant for people like me who like hot hatches. This is definitely one. Just look at it! Its trademark Alfa triangular grille and those headlamps which are slightly reminiscent of the Alfa Romeo 8C (like the Mito), only better looking.

And those gorgeous rims... a la Mercedes SLR. This car in white is the current hatchback killer. Boring Golf step aside...

 

It's going to be available with 4 turbo engines, most notably the 170bhp 1.4l Multi-Air petrol engine. The car will also come with lots of electronic gadgetry: Electronic stability control, Dynamic steering torque and the new DNA selector from the Mito.

 

So that's quite a lot of kit for a car this size with a 5 star NCAP safety rating.

 

Can't wait for it.

 

Can you?

  • A time-wasting and selfish Suzuki Swift driver and passenger duo sends a cam car driver on full tilt

    The following incident is quite a handful, featuring an inconsiderate Suzuki swift driver, the Suzuki's 'guai-lan' passenger and a very angry cam car driver. Watch the it here: What Happened? The incident occurred at an open-air carpark. For some reason, the female Suzuki Swift driver decided to drive out of the parking lot to the middle of the road for her passenger (likely her son) to load groceries into the car.  Just then, the cam car driver that was parked oppo

    A lorry loses control and does a 180-degree spin on the PIE, miraculously missed hitting other vehicles

    I'm not saying there are supernatural forces behind this incident, but it's not improbable.  With the cam car travelling in Lane 1 and the lorry travelling on Lane 2, the video starts with the cam car diagonally behind the heavy vehicle on the PIE. As both vehicles manoeuvre around a bend, the cam car promptly overtakes the lorry.  This explains the change in perspective throughout the video. As if something had possessed the vehicle, the lorry sudden

    Honda Airwave gets engaged in a hot pursuit after rear-ending a motorcycle and attempting to flee

    This incident was so intense that it kept my eyes peeled on the screen for the entire duration of the video.  Watch this attempted hit and run here: What Happened? This incident occurred at Woodlands Avenue 1. While at a red light, a Honda Airwave emerged from behind but could not brake in time.  And as a result, he rear-ended a stationary motorcyclist. Another motorcyclist dismounted and came forward to check on the motorcyclist who had just been hit.

    Motorcyclist rear-ends a Renault Fluence and does an Olympic-worthy, perfect 10 flip

    This motorcyclist shows us why it’s important to always keep your eyes on the road! In this video, a seemingly distracted motorcyclist follows closely behind a white Renault Fluence as the pair navigates through roads filled with busy roadworks. Throughout the entire video, the motorcyclist could be seen tilting his head up and down multiple times. Upon approaching an underground tunnel entrance, the white PHV slows down to join the long queue of vehicles waiting to
