Motor1.com reports that Alfa will introduce in the upcoming Paris auto show a Giulia Veloce model. The Veloce trim will be an all wheel drive model with a 2 liter 280hp gasoline or with a 210hp diesel engine. The article sadly claims that the only available transmission will be an 8-speed automatic. Beside the Veloce Alfa will also introduce a high efficiency version.

The Veloce is a great news, but I am disappointed with the lack of manual options. What will be the difference between the Veloce and the US Ti trim? Both supposed to have a 2 liter 280hp engine. Does it mean that the Ti will be rear wheel drive only and the Veloce will be all wheel drive? Will there be any other differences? Does it mean that the chance of the Ti being available with a manual just got even slimmer?

I've decided to give up hope for having the Ti with manual. I would rather be pleasantly surprised than be disappointed. The Misano Blue paint is gorgeous though!

according to autoblog "We're not getting the Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce" - disappointing: http://www.autoblog.com/2016/09/20/alfa-romeo-giulia-veloce-not-coming-to-united-states/

I really hope this blue is an option! Although the rest of the "Veloce" and its aero kit were on display during the NYC auto show in normal Ti Super trim with the Q4 option so I think we are getting most of this package: http://fcauthority.com/2016/03/firs...new-york-international-auto-show-live-002.jpg


Good observations! I have compared the two models, and you are right, most of the aero kit elements were in fact on the NYC auto show model. The only difference I was able to spot on the Veloce was a slightly lower ride height and more aggressive lower body kit. If these elements will make it to the Ti Super, that will make it a very attractive package.
