Default ITALIANS do it better!

I used various American specialists to process my car. Which are all of Italian origins!

- for the exhaust system I used the advice of Magnaflow. CEO of Magnaflow is Gennaro Paolone, Italian origins.
- I send my TB to MaxBore for boring it . CEO of MaxBore is George Pugliese, Italian origins
- For my new 4.8L engine I turned to RSR Jaguar USA. CEO of RSR is Antony Gentilozzi, Italian origins.

I am sadly thinking of trading in my XKR on a new Alfa Giulia. It is probably the most gorgeous sports sedan ever made and the test drive I went on was amazing!

Will miss the sound of a V8, though!

To each his own--I am not a fan of the looks of the Ghibli. But I can't afford it anyway!

You can get a new Giulia in the low 30s. They are sitting on dealer lots and nobody is buying them!

I've heard it said, that in Heaven, the cooks are French, the cop are British, the mechanics are Italian.
However, I can't personally speak to any of these points.

My ideal car would be designed in Italy, built in Germany and trimmed in England.

[QUOTE = amcdonal86; 1973703] Avevo i meccanici italiani per la mia Jag. Erano le persone pių LAZIE. [/ QUOTE]

write this way could lead to think that you are offensive with the Italians who are all lazy!
it would be like saying that the Americans I met are obese hamburger eaters or the British are drunk because they always drink beer from morning to night.

but is not so.

the Italians are famous for building the most fascinating supercars in the world
(Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Pagani), for fashion (Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Trussardi) for wine (Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Morellino) for food (Parmigiano Reggiano, lasagne,Pizza, Spaghetti: -) ) for art (Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci), for culture (Dante Alighieri, Manzoni), for jewelers (Bulgari, Damiani) and much more.
and we are quite well known also as sailors.... Cristoforo Colombo , Amerigo Vespucci.... :-)

As Americans are famous for Harley Davidson (which I have), Ford, Chevrolet and McDonald or the British for Jaguar, Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Morgan,William Shakespeare and for beer! (which I love)

you were unlucky to find a workshop with lazy Italians. You could find another workshop with even lazy Americans!

I would not take offense at someone saying Americans being obese burger loving idiots! It's pretty true!

When it comes to style the Italians have it nailed!
​​​​​​Cars, motorcycles, clothes, shoes, sunglasses...

Atm I'm besotted with a Ducati Panigale 1299 V4 in carbon fibre. It is beauty defined in engineering and with STYLE.
It's beautiful, stunning and it sounds gorgeous.

Pick this up at the 14m mark and hear it?

[QUOTE = Busa; 1974143] Quando si tratta di stile, gli italiani lo hanno inchiodato!
Automobili, motociclette, vestiti, scarpe, occhiali da sole ...

Atm sono infatuato di una Ducati Panigale 1299 V4 in fibra di carbonio. Č una bellezza definita in ingegneria e con STYLE.
Č bellissimo, stupendo e sembra magnifico.

Prendi questo a 14 metri e lo senti?

[/ QUOTE]

Sono assolutamente d'accordo con te!
questa bici č assolutamente INCREDIBILE. (Campisi č un cognome italiano ...) E visto che sei appassionato di motociclette, anche se il mio č un genere diverso, voglio presentarti il ​​mio:

Alcuni giornalisti di alcune riviste internazionali in cui č stata pubblicata la mia Harley, dopo aver visto questa foto hanno detto che questo dettaglio che ho fatto per la mia Harley sarebbe stato migliore in una galleria d'arte moderna.

hanno definito che ho impressionato lo "stile italiano" su una moto americana.

What I want is a supercar with Japanese electrics and mechnicals, italian exterior styling, british interior design and bridge of weir leather, built on Wednesdays in Germany.

It wouldn't sell well since you'd only ever need or want one and never get a different one.

I had show my Harley to JARET CAMPISI, the one that is on your video. See his answer:

Oh wow very nice man thanks for sharing!

 

You did a great job.  The design flows very well together which is not something you see all the time.

 

And yes Campisi is italian.  My grandfather grew up in Italy and my dad lived there a few years during his childhood as well

 

Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing!

 

 

Jaret
