Latest News: The Quadrifoglio badge once again lives up to its name, amassing two more accolades for the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2019. Judged by the expert team at What Car?, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio took home ‘Performance Car of the Year’, following its ‘Sports Car’ category win in 2018, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio fought off stiff competition to take the crown for ‘Best Sports SUV for more than £60,000’. The Giulia Quadrifoglio came in for praise from Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car?, saying “It’s often said that getting to the top is easier than staying there. So by that reckoning, the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s second Car of the Year category win is arguably a greater success than its first. But it should be no surprise – after all, we’re talking about a comfortable, spacious, well-equipped saloon that’s more fun to drive than rivals costing tens of thousands more”. Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: “The hottest version of the Stelvio SUV is outrageously fast, but still feels light and responsive thanks to steering that's super-quick without making the car feel nervous. Add in great body control and four-wheel drive traction and the Quadrifoglio continually encourages you to make the most of its performance”. Both the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio are powered by a 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, which allows them to reach a top speed of 191mph and 176mph respectively, while reaching 62mph from zero in just 3.9 seconds in the Giulia and 3.8 seconds in the Stelvio. Arnaud Leclerc, Managing Director, FCA UK, commented: “Alfa Romeo cars have always appealed to the heart with their Italian passion, flair and dynamics, but these awards show that the latest models also appeal to the head. To see the pinnacles of the new Alfa Romeo range lauded by the experts at What Car? makes these wins even more rewarding.” To coincide with these wins, Alfa Romeo UK have secured further right-hand-drive allocation of the limited edition Giulia Quadrifoglio NRING and Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRING models, priced from £82,500 OTR and £89,500 OTR respectively. Just 108 editions of each model are available for the whole EMEA region, celebrating the records achieved by Alfa Romeo at the legendary Nurburgring. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is available now priced from £63,500 OTR, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio starts from £69,990 OTR.  To find out more about the award-winning Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio ranges, speak to our Sales Teams at Bedford, Northampton and Kings Lynn

HYUNDAI MOTOR UK IS OFFICIAL CAR PARTNER TO WALES RALLY GB FOR THIRD YEAR RUNNING : 

Hyundai Motor UK is delighted to announce that, for the third successive season, it will partner Britain’s round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Building on the successful affiliation of the past two years, Hyundai Motor UK has been reappointed as the prestigious event’s ‘Official Car Partner’ – a move that reinforces the company’s growing presence at the forefront of the WRC.

Hyundai Motorsport’s ambitious team returned to the World Rally Championship at the start of 2014 and made an immediate impact by winning in Germany. Stepping up its challenge, a second-generation i20 WRC was introduced at the start of this season and has already proved to be a winner with a stirring victory in Argentina.

The partnership between Wales Rally GB and Hyundai Motor UKonce again will see the rally-winning i20 WRC car featuring prominently on all of the 2016 event’s promotional materials including posters, ticketing leaflets and publicity flyers as well as on the walesrallygb.com website and the cover of the official programme.

Hyundai Motor UK will also provide a fleet of 34 liveried vehicles for use on the event (27-30 October) by key members of the organisation team and FIA dignitaries.

“It has been a pleasure to join forces with Hyundai for the past two years and we are delighted the company is extending its role as ‘Official Car Partner’ to Wales Rally GB in 2016,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Wales Rally GB. “The logistics and demands of staging a major world championship event are enormous, and we couldn’t possibly overcome these challenges without the support of major partners like Hyundai. Its fleet of impressive cars and SUVs have proved absolutely invaluable to the successful organisation and running of Wales Rally GB and will do so again come October.”

The Hyundai Motorsport team enjoyed an encouraging Wales Rally GB debut in 2014 when Thierry Neuville just missed out on a podium with a highly creditable fourth position – a positive result that Dani Sordo replicated in 2015. Moreover, with team-mate Hayden Paddon finishing fifth, there were two Hyundai i20s in the top five.

Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK’s President and CEO, commented: “Rally sport is in Hyundai’s DNA and we are delighted to be supporting Wales Rally GB for the third consecutive year. There couldn’t be a better environment for us to showcase the robustness of our road and rally products than over the tough forest rally routes of north and mid Wales in late October.”

He continued: “Competing in the World Rally Championships allows us to transfer technology and learnings between our competition and showroom models – and this will be even more prevalent as we develop and bring to market our motorsport-inspired high performance sub-brand ‘N’. We hope that through our continuing support of the event, we can not only raise the awareness of our current range but also underline its dynamism to what is always an engaged and enthusiastic audience. The latest i20 WRC has already proven its capabilities when winning in Argentina and, having come so close for the past two years, it would be fantastic to see the Hyundai Motorsport team on the podium here in the UK.”

This year’s exciting rally route – including some significant new elements – will be revealed on Wednesday 1 June. In the meantime, spectators can pre-register their interest for ticket information – and enter a special prize draw – via the official www.walesrallygb.com website.
