The Alfa Spirit
Established in 1910, Alfa Romeo has formed a longstanding history and tradition in technology and sports. The Alfa Romeo brand embodies the values of premium Italian engineering, styling, sports performance and elegance. Over the years, the brand has cultivated a legacy for its design, technical prowess and unique character of its automobile. Embodying the unrivalled “Alfa Spirit”, which for over one century has typified the cars made by Alfa Romeo, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is light and efficient, resulting from the choice of materials and the correct weight-to-power ratio. It is the perfect expression of the care for details, typical of only the very best Italian designs.
“An Alfa Romeo delights the senses and the Alfa Romeo name evokes the passion. The spirit of competition and racing is in the Alfa Romeo DNA,” remarks Joshua Goh, Assistant Manager of EuroAutomobile. “The ‘21KM Alfa Romeo Competizione’ is a half-marathon like no other, where ‘YOLO’ is a state of mind. It will be interesting to see who makes the mark.”
In light of Singapore's national record of 1hr 7mins 8secs for the men’s category and 1hr 23mins 16secs for the women’s category, the incredible winners of the 21KM Alfa Romeo Competizione will be the fastest male and the fastest female who can finish the race under the times of 1hr 9mins 0secs and 1hr 25mins 0secs respectively - a feat that must be achieved without the assistance of illegal drugs and steroids.
