ITALIAN CARS SOMEHOW look timeless and stylish at the same time. They are glamorous and racy and belong on the sun-drenched roads of the Sorrento coast.

Now you too can bring some of that Italian flair and style to your driveway with one of these five bellissimo motors from Italy.

The gorgeous Lamborghini Gallardo is a proper two-seat sports car, which is buckets of fun to drive. One of the best things about this baby Lambo is the glorious sound of the 5.0-litre V10 engine. Revving this thing sends tingles all the way through your body to the pleasure zones in your brain.

The Midas pearl yellow exterior and interior with two-tone Nero and Giallo leather perfectly match the engine in terms of loudness, and that is exactly what you want from an Italian supercar, right?

The F355 GTS is the best-looking modern-era Ferrari. This GTS model has a removable hardtop section giving you the security of a hardtop and the coolness and glamour of a convertible. This particular model is finished in the classic colour combo of Rosso Corsa red exterior and cream interior.

The car gets its F355 designation from its 3.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine.

The Maserati GranTurismo is an absolutely fabulous two-door, four-seat GT. Its extravagantly-styled bodywork and interior makes this a car for those who like to turn heads and stand out from the crowd.

Another show stopping feature of this car is the legendary sound that comes from the naturally aspirated Ferrari-built V8 engine under its long bonnet.

Alfa’s first ever SUV is racking up some impressive sales figures across Europe, and for good reason too – it combines sleek looks with engaging handling, and is one of the more exciting SUVs to drive.

The Stelvio is built on the same chassis as the Giulia saloon (read our review here) and boasts 50/50 weight distribution. This model features all-wheel drive and an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox.

2018 Fiat 124 Spider, €33,145

The Fiat 124 Spider shares its name and some of its styling inspiration with the original 1960s, model and a nod to this can be seen in the nose of the new roadster with the positioning of the LED headlamps and the hexagonal upper grille.

The bonnet takes inspiration cues from the 1969 second-gen 124 Spider with the twin power domes. This is the Classica version which comes well-equipped as standard.
