Alfa Romeo recently revealed the special edition the Giulia Veloce, a model sitting between the Quadrifoglio and every other trim. There aren’t too many options for the Giulia when it comes to body design as they’re all saloons, but what if the Italian designers decide to come out with a hatchback version?
Alessandro Masera turned a Giulia Veloce into the glorious five-door hatch you see above. His rendering of a hypothetical Alfa Romeo Giulia GT Veloce prioritizes design and performance over interior space and practicality. We can see a steep rear window rake, a roofline that has been extended for that stretched hatchback look, and in place of the shark fin is a rear spoiler. Not much else has been changed from the original design in the front besides the new LED head lights.
A Giulia hatchback could be in the cards. If you take a look at the new Alfa Romeo product plan that was released last month, you’ll see a hatchback included in the lineup. We really don’t know when it’ll actually come, for all we know Alfa Romeo won’t unveil the five-door until 2020.
If a Giulia Veloce based hatchback is in the plans, Alfa Romeo probably won’t prioritize it in the foreseeable futures, especially when they have the more profitable SUVs like the Stelvio in the works.
