    I thought the manual was for Europe only. Either way if one exists it would be possible to convert the car to manual

    It was for Europe only, yes. But after the automatic version debuted, sales of the manual one went off a cliff (in 2017, they built an average of less than 13 manual Quadrifoglios per month). Alfa stopped taking orders for it in December 2017, and the very last manual Quadrifoglio rolled off the line in March 2018.

    I believe manual diesel still exists, true statement?

    I suppose you're referring to the 350hp with the additional 48V battery I've talked about in the past; at this point, frankly, I no longer have any idea. I haven't heard a single peep about it in a long time, and I suspect it may have been shelved in favor of some other hybrid version.

    Yes, the manual gearbox is still available on the 136, 160 and 190hp diesels.

    That's to bad, I think it would have made the lineup more interesting. Well I hope they come up with something even better(Any rumors :))

    I saw this during Cavallino...I cant wait to move south and buy one. Really stunning. I dont care if the interior is not as nice as a BMW or Audi or MB, the ext is on another level.

    Just purchased this beauty. A new 2018 (only had 32 miles on the ODO), tri-layer red, Sparco seats, interior is black with red stitching.

    Coming out of a 2008 Lexus ISF this was a great replacement as a family car!! So in love with this thing, now I just need Wisconsin "spring" weather to cooperate!

    Super nice. I'm considering one, finally---been on the fence, hoping for a manual. So what's this about a 4-cylinder 350HP version possibly coming?

    Great choice! Enjoy it, you will need a rear "tire fund" though.
    I sold my 13 Maserati GT, ordered the Guilia new. I haven't looked back.

    Thanks all for the well wishes! For sure this initial set of rear tires aren't going to last long, haha. She is an absolute joy to drive, I'm told it has a nice stereo too, though with the car in race mode I don't know why anyone would need a stereo!

    The color is fantastic and looks so different depending on how the light hits it. It was probably my third preference after the dark blue and volcano black but I wouldn't change anything now. Not too many on the roads in these parts (haven't seen another QV on the road here) and it is funny seeing people turn and look when I drive by.
