Check out the amazing Alfa Romeo Giulia Grand Tour

And check out the headliner!

Good news doesn't sell as well as bad news, it's a universal truth, and this truism is constantly being exploited by media outlets that tend to over-dramatize news in order to sell it. In my humble opinion this can be, quite frankly, very annoying. I'm saying this because several newspapers and websites reported that Hertz had filed for bankruptcy back in May, which was both true and spectacularly misreported, because most media outlets made it sound like that was the end of it and from that point on, you couldn't find any Hertz cars anywhere in the world.

To cut a very long story very short, yes, Hertz did file for Chapter 11 in the US but they're still operational and, more to the point, they only filed for bankruptcy for their US branch. Hertz is also still active in most other countries including Italy where, among other things, you can hire this: the Giulia Grand Tour, designed for Hertz by Lapo Elkann's Garage Italia. The Giulia Grand Tour, which is based on the Giulia Veloce, costs around €60 per day, and that's not bad considering what you're getting.

Speaking of news, I've got good and bad. Bad news is, well, travelling is obviously quite difficult right now but the good news is Hertz is offering a 20% discount on all bookings, including for the Giulia Grand Tour, made before November 30 and don't worry, your booking is valid through March 31st.

But let's face it, I only wrote this post so that I could have an excuse to share pictures of the amazing headliner in the Grand Tour.

Gorgeous, isn't it?

  • James May had done that roof lining years ago with the Salfa Romeaab, a DIY streched limmo that he had bodged together from an Alfa Romeo 164 and a Saab 9000. It had fronts from each car at either end, and inside there was a sauna at the Sweddish end, and a Sistine Chappel at the Italian end
