No it’s not an event we are aware of, but we shouldn’t think Alfa Romeo will mind as their new Giulia picked up another award to add to their ever increasing collection. This time the all-new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti (Turismo Internazionale) took the top award in the “Affordable Panoramic” category at the seventh annual Topless in Miami Presented by Haartz competitive car event hosted by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA).
“The all-new Giulia Ti equipped with the dual-pane sunroof is an exciting addition to the Topless in Miami Competition and we’re thrilled to have Alfa Romeo back in North America with a truly competitive luxury sedan,” said Jaime Florez, SAMA president. “SAMA judges were impressed by the highly-contended vehicle’s dynamic performance and beautiful Italian craftsmanship that make the new Giulia a serious competitor among luxury sedans.”
More than 40 journalists attended the event and drove more than 25 vehicles from various manufacturers. Journalists voted for their favorite vehicles after driving scenic routes in Key Biscayne, Florida.
Crafted by Alfa Romeo artisans at the Cassino plant in Italy, the all-new 2017 Giulia is a testament to Alfa Romeo’s perfect balance of engineering and emotion, creating a premium sports sedan for driving enthusiasts that stands out in the segment, and is luxurious and comfortable on the inside.
Built around the driver, Alfa Romeo Giulia designers focused on simplistic elegance, with an emphasis on incorporating the essential elements for performance. The designers did this while taking a top-down strategy – starting with the halo high-performance 505-hp 2.9L twin-turbo V6 Quadrifoglio model – ensuring top performance, impeccable handling, and luxurious design and trickling that technology and craft down throughout the Giulia line-up today.
