  • Alfa Romeo Racing Editions makes their UK debut at the motorsport mecca
  • Tonale Concept offers glimpse of the Alfa Romeo brand's electric future
  • Alfa Romeo Racing F1 car to take to the hill at the hands of Italian F1 driver Antonio Giovinazzi

This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed will see Alfa Romeo showcasing a range of current production models, including the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio, alongside a glimpse into the future of the brand with the hybrid Tonale Concept and the pinnacle of motorsport with the Alfa Romeo Racing F1 car.

Alfa Romeo Racing Editions
This year's Festival of Speed will see the UK debut of the limited edition Alfa Romeo Racing models.  Sporting the legendary Quadrifoglio badge, these exclusive models celebrate the return of Alfa Romeo to the F1 grid with a livery that pays tribute to this season's C32 racing car, driven by former F1 world champion Kimi Raikkonen and Italian Antonio Giovinazzi. 

Fans can get up close to the cars on the Alfa Romeo stand and experience the raw emotion as the Giulia Quadrifoglio Alfa Romeo Racing Edition takes to the famous 1.6 mile Goodwood hill climb for its inaugural UK dynamic first glance.  Visitors will hear the sonorous sound of the 2.9-litre V6 Bi-Turbo engine as it flies past Goodwood House, enriched by the addition of the titanium Akrapovic exhaust, while the Alfa Romeo engineering team have tuned the engine to increase the power output to 520hp.

Alfa Romeo Tonale Concept
Offering a glimpse into the future of the brand will be the Alfa Romeo Tonale concept car, seen for the first time in the UK at Goodwood Festival of Speed having just been awarded the coveted "Car Design Award 2019".  This Alfa Romeo is the first model from the brand to use the latest plug-in hybrid technology as well as being their first mid-sized utility vehicles. It rewrites the rules of today's fastest growing segment using the Alfa Romeo trademark combination of unique Italian style and unrivalled handling, together with state-of-the-art electrification for the first time.

Alfa Romeo Racing F1
Alfa Romeo's illustrious history in F1 will be celebrated with the "Alfa Romeo Racing" team running the C32 up the infamous Goodwood Hill on Saturday and Sunday, driven by Italian driver Antonio Giovinazzi.  Fresh from winning the Trofeo Bandini trophy and scoring his first point in F1, Antonio will also be making an appearance on the Alfa Romeo stand alongside the team's C32 F1 showcar.
