    It may or may not out perform it's rivals, but I do not doubt it will turn heads with it's looks - knowing Alfa Romeo. Sticking with Fiat group of manufacturers, wish Maserati had a crack with their version of the LaFerrari as they did with MC12 to the Enzo, even though Maserati aren't in the healthiest of postions. And don't even get me started on Lancia.

    I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing more about these. There aren’t many dull Alfa’s and I doubt these will be.

    Does the G in in the GTV for this one stand for "Giulia" by any chance?

    ...Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

    From what I've been reading, the new GTV will basically be a Giulia Coupe.

    Never got that Giulia wagon. :( Stupid SUV-driven market environment!

    I suspect it's still short for "Gran."

    As far as I know (big Alfa fan and owning one my self), GTV means Gran Turismo Veloce...

    Cheers...

    It's basically the same idea as the Honda NSX.

    The use of the vague "axle" means they don't have to commit to a specific technology - single motor and single one-speed gearbox, single motor driving dual in-wheel gearboxes, or dual motors - at this point.

    I think GTV stands for Gran Turismo Veloce.

    Looks like it's keeping the 4C resemblance from that picture, but even better, looks super damn close to a certain other alfa....
