Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE - Carmel Ste­wart

SOME­ONE once said that ev­ery­one should own at least one Alfa Romeo; if you haven’t done so yet, the Gi­uli­etta Collezione spe­cial could be the one for you.

The Gi­uli­etta in stan­dard form is pri­mar­ily a car for those who like to look good. The Collezione spe­cial – which is ba­si­cally a trim up­grade – con­tin­ues the theme, only more so.

It is avail­able in three sig­na­ture Alfa colours; Solid Black, Alfa Red and Ghi­ac­cio White, all fea­tur­ing a con­trast­ing roof as stan­dard. The Solid Black mod­els have a matt mag­ne­sio grey roof while the Alfa Red and Ghi­ac­cio White mod­els fea­ture a solid black roof.

In­side, new black and red com­pe­tizione cloth up­hol­stery – not a ref­er­ence to the 8c, say Alfa –with con­trast­ing stitch­ing and titanium fin­ish in­serts on the door in­serts, cen­tral con­sole and dash­board make for an im­pres­sive look as do 17-inch Titanium al­loys and wing mir­rors, dark­ened head­light sur­rounds and chrome door han­dles.

Prices start at £18,265 as com­pared to £17,760 for the ba­sic 1.4litre Turismo. There is no change to the set-up or en­gines which num­ber four – a 1.4litre 120bhp, a 1.4litre Mul­ti­Air 170bhp petrol plus 1.6litre 105bhp and 2.0litre 140bhp diesels.

LOOK­ING GOOD: Alfa Romeo’s Gi­uli­etta Collezione.
