Each year, Hagerty attempts to identify cars that may be future classics or collectibles with its ‘Hot List’. Hagerty says cars named to the list “must deliver the joy of driving today, along with continue to foster every gearhead’s love of driving and become collectible in the future,” and it’s safe to say the new Giulia QV covers those bases rather well.
“The Giulia is a true expression of La Dolce Vita,” said Hagerty CEO McKeel Hagerty. “It’s the kind of car that makes you want to spend your time looking for twisty roads. The car has the ingredients to become a future classic.”
The Giulia QV will be a future collectible for a number of reasons. If the Giulia and Stelvio SUV do begin the renaissance for Alfa that FCA is hoping for, the Giulia QV will be seen as the car that started it all. It’s also a high-performance Alfa Romeo with a Ferrari-derived engine that set a Nurburgring lap record for production sedans and is, subjectively, one of the best looking cars on sale today. It’s hard to see how it couldn’t be a future classic.
Other vehicles included on Hagerty’s Hot List for 2017 include the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, Ford Raptor and Mazda Miata RF.
