Giuliaq2, ci sono molte belle strade di montagna negli Stati Uniti occidentali. Alcuni sono tortuosi, ripidi con molte forcine per capelli. Grande divertimento nella nostra Giulia.Yes...or Q4 AWD. All USA Giulias are 280hp, except Quadrifoglio of course.
And yes, we have lots of good road for driving fun. Not so many narrow, tight, hairpin, mountain roads as in some places in Europe, for example, but the extra width and gentler curves really raise the speeds.
There are nice mountain roads in the East, too, and one of America’s most famed drives, the Tail of the Dragon, is located there. If you get lucky enough to hit it without traffic, it’s challenging at pace.Giuliaq2, ci sono molte belle strade di montagna negli Stati Uniti occidentali.

That might be true in the virtually flat state of Michigan. However, out in the Western area of the US we have many large mountain ranges. In my state of Washington we have three National Parks (see below), with very high mountain ranges. There are hundreds and hundreds of winding, climbing roads with hairpins turns. Our mountains here are very similar if not more spectacular than the Alps. This goes for the mountain ranges in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and California, there are others too. Paradise Lodge at the 5400 foot level of 14,480 foot Mt Rainier receives an average of 53.6 feet/16.3 meters of snow each year.
Last Summer we took our two month old Giulia Q4, AWD, 2.0L, 280hp to Mt. Rainier. Our final climb was about 15 miles (24km) of many steep hairpin turns with an elevation gain of 3300 feet (1000m) up to Paradise Lodge at 5400 feet (1650m). Giulia was in the dynamic mode all the way up, what a blast! Superb handling and tons of instantaneous power.
