Vilner has transformed the interior of an Alfa Romeo Brera, equipping the car with Nappa leather and tapestry in Alcantara, all in red and black, with the roof and the back of the seats designed.Many carbon fiber components were also used, contrasting with the alloy wheels.


The first “test-mule” of the Alfa Romeo Giulia is what can be seen in the images. Alfa Romeo has begun testing its new car that will be unveiled between late 2015 and early 2016, with the “mule” prototype using a reconfigured Maserati Ghibli body. From what can be understood, the design of the Giulia has small rear doors so as to improve its coupe appearance.From the photos, it seems that the Giulia is a bit shorter than the Ghibli, with the rear being significantly smaller. The model that appears to be codenamed “Type 952” will be manufactured at the Cassino plant, where production of Fiat Bravo and Lancia Delta stopped last month, while Giulietta production started to share the same production line with Chroma .The Giulia will be produced on Alfa Romeo’s new rear-wheel drive platform and will weigh 1.5 tonnes. It will be available with the 1.75-liter turbocharged 4C petrol engine developing near 240 hp, the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine with power between 105 and 170 hp and lastly the 2.0-liter diesel engine charging between 105 and 175 hp. The Giulia will also have a GTA version that will be equipped with the Ghibli twin-turbo V6 engine producing something between 480 and 520 hp. The engines will be coupled to a manual or automatic TCT transmission, and the Giulia GTA will have a dual-clutch transmission, both bringing power to the rear wheels. The GTA version will have a limited slip differential.
