Art cars often end up in museums or automakers’ collections, but you can now enjoy an artistic sedan in your garage by picking up this vibrantly painted Alfa Romeo Giulia.
Artist Stephen Elliott Webb painted this Giulia during an event called "One Artist - One Car - One Night." The party helped benefit The Fisher House Charleston – a charity that provides temporary accommodations to veterans and their families while the veteran is receiving medical attention at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina.
The clip above shows Webb paint the Alfa Romeo. The wild streaks of color reflect the artist’s style that’s reminiscent of abstract expressionism. The mix of red, yellow, blue, and black is incredibly eye catching.
This Giulia has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder routes 280 horsepower (209 kilowatts) and 306 pound-feet (415 Newton-meters) of torque to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic. The powertrain offers enough performance to get the sedan to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 5.1 seconds. This model also includes amenities like an 8.8-inch infotainment screen and dual-pane panoramic sunroof. While there’s no mention in the listing, the model appears to ride on Alfa’s optional 18-inch Dark Turbine wheels, too. The car has just 55 miles on it.
The seller didn’t provide much more info about the car in the AutoTrader entry, but Motor1 has reached out to the person for more details. The asking price of $99,999 means that the person buying this car needs to see value in having a unique vehicle. The Giulia starts at $38,990 (after $995 destination), and the mid-range TI goes $40,990. Even considering the options on this one, the price is still more than double what a run-of-the-mill copy would cost.
