The Alfa Romeo 159 is one good looking mid-size sedan, but the Italians have decided that its days will be numbered. According to italian magazine Quattroruote, the model that will replace the 159 is going to be quite revolutionary, taking the famous name Giulia and marking the change in Alfa’s model naming strategy, replacing the numbers with names.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia was quite a car, but Alfa won’t borrow anything else than the name, as the new one will be built on the common platform with Fiat Bravo or Lancia Delta. The influence of the 8C Competizione will reflect on the front end of this car, as it did with the Mi.To. Tehnical details are really scarce, the only thing that is certain is that it will be available with front wheel drive of all wheel drive. Sources also report that this model will be unveilled around 2011. Scans of the magazine can be found below.
