The Giulietta is currently being aggressively marketed across Europe with the gawky beauty of Uma Thurman behind the wheel. That she is slightly jolie laide makes her the perfect ambassador for a car that is stunning from the right angles, slightly odd from the wrong ones. But the Cloverleaf, presented to us in the same rich metallic red that adorns Alfa's super-exclusive 8C supercar, looks utterly glorious. Dark, multi-spoke alloys, modest twin exhaust pipes, subtle aero, a smattering of honeycomb in the airdam - if it weren't for the clumsily slapped-on Cloverleaf badges below the A-pillars, the Giulietta would be the very model of racy restraint.
