Every year the Alfa Romeo pavilion claims the attention of those who crave for cars. At the 2012 edition, the Alfa Romeo range will be sided by the Giulia and the 8C Spider, that will show how tough it is at the Supercar Paddock.
An icon was born,
half a century ago.
When the first Alfa Romeo Giulia rolled out of the factory in 1962, it was nicknamed as "designed by the wind".
Its aerodynamic outline was instantly recognized and became the distinctive mark of a car that has “dressed up” in many ways – from sporty to city car – has stood out both on raceways and on the road, and reached in 1977 the major milestone of one million units manufactured.
A Giulia Sprint Speciale will side current-range models at the Alfa Romeo pavilion in Goodwood, symbolizing the ties between legends of the past and legends of the future.
