Alfa Romeo Guilietta to star in Fast & Furious 6 [w/video]

We wanted to play this one straight, but since it involves Fast & Furious 6 we just couldn't figure out how. Alfa Romeo is touting the role of the Guilietta in the next episode of car guys and gals versus bad guys and gals, and the now-Europe-inclusive franchise is using the post-stunt vehicles in its advertising. Well, we might add.

We'll let the breathy, exclamatory press release below speak for itself, along with the trailer in which you get to see the "modified" Giulietta demonstrating the textbook technique for pulling down an Antonov cargo plane at take-off speed. You'll find a very Italian set of high-res images above.

06 Maggio 2013 -- A new star of international cinema, taking the leading role in a surprising advertising campaign: it's the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the compact saloon that has been cast in the latest, eagerly awaited sixth instalment of 'Fast&Furious' which will be presented in a world preview on 7 May in London, and released internationally starting from 22 May.

The sixth instalment of the successful series, the film is directed by Justin Lin and stars actors Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Luke Evans, Elsa Pataky and Gina Carano.

London is precisely the chosen setting for 'Fast&Furious 6' - this is the first time that a film in the series is shot in Europe - and the location of one of the most thrilling scenes, an incredible drive that sees the films stars on board a potent Alfa Romeo Giulietta. First, the car 'debarks' from an enormous Antonov during take-off then it attempts to interrupt the cargo aircraft's take-off run in a breath-taking chase sequence. In the end, it's the Giulietta who comes out on top, thanks to the model's outstanding performance and the bravery of the two stars, driving the aircraft disastrously off the runway.
