Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS We’ve barely met the Alfa Romeo Giulia – and it’s certainly made a stellar first impression – but Alfa has already broken our hearts.That’s because, according to Car and Driver, Alfa Romeo won’t sell the Giulia Quadrifoglio with a six-speed manual transmission which, incidentally, is standard fare in Europe.Alfa is chalking this one up to generally low take-rates for manual transmissions in North America as a whole, meaning the only way to experience the Guilia Quadrifoglio’s 505-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 is through an otherwise slick eight-speed automatic. Still, the BMW M3 and Cadillac ATS-V – two of the Gilua Quadrifoglio’s main competitors – offer a six-speed manual. They might not sell a lot, but perhaps Alfa is missing out on a slice of that pie. However small it may be. center_img We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information.
