This is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and it is bite the back of your hand beautiful! One of the most anticipated cars of this year, it will take on the likes of the Mercedes-AMG C63 and BMW M3.
Underneath its beautiful curves that are pure Italian style sits another Italian masterpiece. A 2.9 litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine that has been breathed on by Ferrari. This produces a rather exciting 503 BHP and 443 lb ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an 8 speed automatic gearbox and a carbon fibre propshaft. There is a manual option for left hand drive cars but sadly the UK will only receive cars donning paddle shifters. 0-62 MPH takes just 3.9 seconds and it will continue to accelerate up until its top speed of 190 MPH. Optional carbon fibre brakes are available. The car weighs 1,524 KG full of everything it needs making it one of the lightest in its class. Not that it matters much on a car like this but the Alfa Romeo Giulia claims 33.2 MPG combined.
The interior brings the handsome nature of the exterior inside with a smattering of carbon fibre.
This is the next step in the Alfa Romeo resurgence and it certainly appears to have all of the correct ingredients. We are driving the Giulia Quadrifoglio in the coming days with a written first drive road test hosted on the website.
