Alfa Giulietta becomes YouTube hit

Alfa Giulietta becomes YouTube hit

A stunt video of an Alfa Giulietta on ice has become a YouTube sensation, attracting almost half a million hits.

The video, which was filmed on an iPhone, sees student driver Paul Swift take the car onto the Coventry Skydome ice rink for tricks with Britain's best ice hockey team, Coventry Blaze.

Showing off the Giulietta's all-weather D.N.A. system, Swift manages to get the car to strike a hockey puck from inside the end zone, past the goaltender and into the six-feet wide net.

"This demonstration of control and agility on the ice using the all-weather setting highlights the hidden technology in our cars, and shows how the Alfa Giulietta can cope with adverse driving surfaces at the flick of a switch," commented Damien Dally, head of brand at Alfa Romeo UK.

"Of course it also proves that an Alfa Giulietta can, in fact, play ice hockey!"

Alfa Romeo's all-weather D.N.A. system is also available in the Alfa MiTo and heightens all safety features on the car, improving control and handling for any adverse weather.
