Paris 2016: Alfa Romeo lineup led by Giulia Veloce

Alfa Romeo has announced its lineup for the 2016 Paris Auto Show, and the new Giulia Veloce will be the star.

As you may know, "Veloce" is a name steeped in Alfa Romeo tradition, established in 1956 with the Giulietta and ever since illuminating the Italian brand's sporty models.

There will actually be two new Giulia Veloce variants in Paris, both with an 8-speed automatic transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive technology: The first model sees the debut of the Blue Misano livery and is fitted with the new 280-horsepower 2.0L turbo gas engine, while the other displays a Silverstone grey body and uses the new 210-horsepower 2.2L diesel engine.

Two Super versions of the Alfa Romeo Giulia plus a Quadrifoglio will also be showcased in Paris, not to mention the redesigned Giulietta and Mito.
