It's hard to believe, but the long-awaited Alfa Romeo Giulia has officially hit the U.S. market. The Giulia is doing big things for Alfa too–it's already outselling the 4C sports car, and it doubled the Italian automaker's U.S. sales last month.
This information comes from , which states that Alfa Romeo sold a whopping 52 cars last month. The Giulia outsold the 4C by a pretty significant margin too–29 to 23, to be precise. Clearly, there are bright things ahead in Alfa Romeo's U.S.-market future.
Ok, we're being tongue-in-cheek. The 4C is one of the slowest selling cars in the States, with only 480 units sold in 2016, and December was the first month for Giulia sales. Given its niche appeal, the 4C will continue selling slowly, while Giulia sales should pick up significantly in the coming months.
Interestingly, the Dodge Viper outsold the entire Alfa Romeo brand in December . . . by a full seven cars. Yep, the Viper found 59 customers who presumably want to get their hands on one before Dodge ends production later this year.
Now that the Alfa Giulia is on the market, it'll be interesting to see if it can attract customers away from BMW, Mercedes, and the like. In 505-hp Quadrifoglio form, the Giulia is an impressive machine, but is that enough to attract those to a brand they might not have heard of? We'll find out in time.
