Hard to go past this...



It's one of the few cars that doesn't have a bad angle on it, might start saving , 5 years from now we might find a point where the numbers match , a guy I used to work with died last week, 62, heart attack , enjoy it while you can

I agree, it's a beautiful design of intercepting ellipses that manages to also appear squat and menacing. I cannot think of a prettier saloon, you have to go back to the Quattroporte to get close.

Love the QF. Have been trying to add it to the family, but wifey likes her SUVs too much. Before 1st son was born tried to get her into V10 RS6! That didn't work either! :f7:

Medium SUV’s are very popular nowadays, people like to sit up higher. If they’re Macan or Stelvio sized then the body roll is to nowhere near the extent it is in a full sized SUV.
One of my best mates is picking up a 70 plate Stelvio QV today and I can’t wait to have a go in it; personally think they look fantastic.

This is true but I just can't get over the looks. Just not Alfa enough for me. GTV, Brera, 156, 8C, 4C, GT, Guilia these are all gorgeous cars, the Stelvio just isn't.
I think in isolation they look fine but once you have seen a Giulia it's then hard not to see them as anything but an overbloated Giulia. It's good they exist as I suspect they may outsell the Giulia QF, such is the way of the world these days.

First one I saw was white Dicky and didn’t think I would like it but it certainly had presence and looked good.

This. I was looking at a Giulia QF next to a Stelvio in my local dealer while the Fiat was being serviced, The Stelvios looked shite in comparison, the Giulia svelte, purposeful and elegant.
