Two sexy new Italians are set to debut at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles when the LA Auto Show opens its doors on November 20.
Alfa Romeo will show the Giulia Quadrifoglio sedan, with its Ferrari-massaged 500hp V6 biturbo, and six-speed manual transmission with rear wheel drive.
The new Giulia range will be built in Frosinone, Italy, but few details of the lower range versions are available at the moment, except that the base model will come with a 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder, with either rear wheel drive, or optional all-wheel-drive.
Fiat will unwrap its 124 Spider sports car with a 1.4 MultiAir turbocharged four cylinder, and offered with either a six-speed manual, or six-speed automatic.
This is the car that is built entireley by Mazda, and is based on the latest Mazda MX 5. The two cars are built on the same line in Japan, with the 124 Spider getting a FIAT-derived engine.
