Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale (Estimated 1.7-million euros or $2.497 million Canadian): Expected to enter production midway in 2024 is Alfa Romeo’s modern tribute to a classic 1967 33 Stradale. The all-new Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is a deeply alluring exotic supercar. The strong aesthetic beauty of the two-seat machine is both purposeful and artistic with incorporating tightly balanced aerodynamics, wraparound sunroof, active suspension and an interior control layout echoing back to 1960s race car cockpits. Each one of the 33 production examples of the 33 Stradale has already been sold with the future owners said to have intimately guided the vehicle’s final design through the Alfa Romeo Bottega creative department. Another standout quality of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is the availability of two powerplant options; a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine producing 620 horsepower and a fully electric powertrain generating an estimated 750 horsepower.

Product Lineup: 296 GTB, 296 GTS, Portofino M, Purosangue, Roma, Roma Spider, SF90 Spider, SF90 Stradale, SF90 XX Spider, SF90 XX Stradale Overall Brand Impression:  The devotion of the Italian artisans that has kept Ferrari as a premium sports car leader stretches right back to the company’s founder. However, while Enzo Ferrari believed in the construction of pure performance machines in disregard for creature comforts, today’s vehicles are assembled with more consideration of customers seeking luxury alongside supercar power.

What’s New for 2024:  The subcompact Fiat 500 returns to the United States and Canada for 2024 exclusively as a battery electric vehicle. Assembled within a tidy, elegant Italian-styled package, the 2024 Fiat 500e features a powertrain consisting of a 42-kWh battery pack as well as an electric motor generating 118 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque.
