I find it beyond hysterical that people gush over the Alfa Romeo, but in review after review magazines can’t keep them running. Sign me up for a new one today!!!

Among others, IIRC they also offered a NA 345 (5.7L) and SC option also.

I thought the 5.7 only came supercharged?

It`s been a long time since I`ve raced at or gone to a drag strip and I`m sure the rules have changed since then so what class at the drag strip does it run in that only allows for one seat and not a passenger seat? The reason I ask is because it is being advertised as for "Grassroots Drag Racers". Most classes require a passenger seat.

It might now, yeah.

I know when the DragPak's first came back there was a NA 5.7

I've not kept up with the Sportsman classes as much as I normally do lately.

Interesting offering but I think they could have done much more. The car doesn't need all of the Demon's features its not running 9s, how about a bump in HP to 515 and the DRs and upgraded axles, maybe some LC features.

I wonder if this could be setting the stage for a 426-Hemi drag pack offering in 20?

The 426 50th anniversary edition has been confirmed by a long time & reliable source on the Challenger forum.

A lady I work with that has a Giulia. Her husband is retired Chrysler so she said she got a “steal” on it. We talk a lot because we’re both car enthusiast!

Hers is in the shop more so than not. Her main issue is the rain triggers her collision alert or something to that affect. She’s says nobody at the dealership can work on it and they have to use phone support where there is a language barrier. This is at a Fiat dealership. So with her car being in and out of the shop week after week, nothing really gets fixed.

Every few weeks I see a different color Giulia (loaners for her) in the parking lot.

I’m not sure if she got a ‘steal’ or ripped off.
