According to Automotive News portal, Alfa Romeo developed a new rear-wheel drive car, that would have received the name Giorgio.

Remember that at the end of October last year, Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat-Chrysler, said something about the future of Alfa Romeo and promised to provide further details at the end of the first quarter of 2014. Therefore, it is expected that the news be confirmed in May.

Apparently Alfa Romeo developed a new rear-drive platform flexible enough to allow its models also have full traction.

According to the publication, the structure, developed by a small team led by Philippe Krief Maserati, is expected to be used within Chrysler and Dodge models, since it would not create enough volume if it were used only for the brand Alfa Romeo.
