Alfa Romeo has confirmed prices for the all-new Giulia Quadrifoglio will start at £59,000 OTR.
Powered by a new 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, with an eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission as standard, the Giulia Quadrifoglio is capable of sprinting to 62mph in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of more than 190mph.
Standard specification includes 19-inch Quadrifoglio alloy wheels; sports front bumper with Alfa Active Aero; sports rear bumper with functional diffuser; sports exhaust with four outlets; Alfa Active Suspension and bi-xenon headlamps with LED DRL. Safety spec includes advanced Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Monitoring (DSM), Alfa Romeo’s new Integrated Braking System (IBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and a rear-view camera with guide lines.
Interior highlights include special sports seats trimmed in leather and Alcantara with front seat heaters, steering-column mounted paddle shifters, a seven-inch TFT instrument cluster, Alfa Romeo’s new Uconnect 3D Nav 8.8-inch infotainment system, DAB radio, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers and cruise control with speed limiter.
Built around Alfa’s new rear-wheel drive architecture, the Giulia features short overhangs, a long bonnet, muscular haunches and the 'longest wheelbase in its segment'. Alfa says careful management of weights and materials has resulted in ‘perfect’ 50/50 weight distribution across its axles, while the four-arm Alfa Link rear suspension and new double-wishbone front set up have been specifically tuned to ‘maximise its dynamic abilities and enhance driving comfort’.
Also debuting on the Giulia is a new semi-virtual steering axis which optimises the filtering effect and guarantees rapid, accurate steering by keeping a constant caster trail in corners, while a Torque Vectoring double-clutch rear differential system controls the torque delivery to each rear wheel to improve traction in low grip conditions without having to run up against an invasive stability control system.
A carbon fibre bonnet, roof, front splitter, rear spoiler and body inserts, as well as aluminium for the doors and wings helps reduce weight. The braking system has been tweaked using aluminium elements, while carbon ceramic brake discs and front seats with a carbon fibre structural frame can also be specified as options.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio will be available to order shortly.
