Latest News: Jeep features prominently in this year’s 4x4 Magazine ‘4x4 of the Year 2018 awards’, taking three of the honours’ top prizes. Among the magazine’s Special Awards, Jeep was crowned 4x4 Manufacturer of the Year and Jeep Wrangler scooped the Off-Road Award. Meanwhile Jeep Renegade was named Best Small SUV in the honours’ Class Awards. With the new Jeep Compass due on sale here in February and new Wrangler due later in 2018, it is going to be another important year for Jeep. 4x4 Magazine’s panel of experts recognised the company’s achievements in their awards. “The Wrangler will continue to be the dedicated off-road machine a brand like Jeep needs if it is to remain credible – which it clearly is,” said Alan Kidd, editor, 4x4 Magazine. “The arrival of the new Compass strengthens the company’s position still further. Jeep is absolutely getting it right.” On Wrangler’s Off-Road Award, the panel of experts said: “When a vehicle is still capable of winning awards when its replacement is already being built, that’s an indication of how far ahead it is. This Wrangler is more than 10 years old, yet demand is greater than ever and used ones are going up, not down, in value. More than ever, it’s the definitive off-roader.” And commenting on Renegade’s Small SUV win, they said: “Last year’s overall champion is still a winning proposition in its own highly competitive corner of the market. There are more refined options, but the Renegade has plenty of image, plenty of kit – and a set of off-road skills to leave the rest of the class standing still.” “’There’s Only One’ is what we say about Jeep, and millions of people all over the world will testify to that,” says Andrew Tracey, Country Brand Manager, Jeep UK. “So it’s especially good to see a panel of 4x4 experts agreeing that point too and not only recognising two of our models in their awards, but making us their top manufacturer. “With new Compass and Wrangler to come, and constant improvements being made to our entire range of cars, we are looking forward to 2018 and beyond.” The Jeep Wrangler range starts at £36,740 OTR for the 2.8 CRD Sahara. The Jeep Renegade range starts at £18,250 OTR for the 1.6E-TorQ 110hp Sport.

Alfa Romeo Rules at Mille Miglia 2016 : 

The 34th re-enactment of the Freccia Rossa, "the most beautiful travelling museum in the world" as it was aptly called by Enzo Ferrari, ended yesterday on the Finish Line of Viale Venezia in Brescia. Undisputed stars of the event were the classic Alfa Romeos: a 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato was followed by a 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 Gran Sport, which came third, while another 6C 1750 Gran Sport Zagato, this one from 1930 and belonging to the Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, came fifth.

It was a triumph for the 6C 1750 Gran Sport that won the 1930 edition of the race with Tazio Nuvolari and Giovanni Battista Guidotti as crew. That of 1930 was the race of the legendary "overtaking in the dark" episode when Nuvolari achieved the unprecedented feat of averaging 100 km/h over the entire course and was one of Alfa Romeo's eleven wins in the years from 1927 to 1957 of the Mille Miglia as a proper race: a record that was to remain undefeated.

Mille Miglia is a race - of which Alfa Romeo is "Automotive Sponsor" - with a vintage flair that still thrills drivers and enthusiasts worldwide. The legendary course was brilliantly completed by other invaluable cars picked by FCA Heritage, the new organisation that coordinates all the activities of the corporation on the classic car scene, from their collection. The line-up featured the other two official Alfa Romeo cars: the 1954 1900 Sport Spider and the 1956 1900 Super Sprint, both from the revamped Alfa Romeo Museum, dubbed "La macchina del tempo" (www.museoalfaromeo.com).

The finish line was also crossed by two exquisite vintage Fiat spiders - a 1934 508S, known as "Balilla Coppa d'Oro", and the 1955 1100 TV Trasformabile - and a precious 1939 Lancia Ardea, first series saloon, with the famous actress Kasia Smutniak onboard.

These rare vehicles were accompanied by the latest new FCA models to reassert the eternal link between the icons of the past and the vehicles currently produced by the Group. In particular, the Alfa Romeo 4C was given the prestigious task of opening the parade, while a fleet of New Giulietta was made available to the organisers of the event. Finally, staring on the roads of Mille Miglia 2016 were also the new Alfa Romeo Giulia, the one-of-a-kind Lancia Ypsilon Mya special series and the fascinating Fiat 124 Spider.
