Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

Alfa Romeo Giulia officially unveiled

June 26, 2015

The Alfa Romeo Giulia has been officially unveiled in the renovated Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, near Milan, in Italy. The company unveiled the range-topping model of the luxury sport sedan, bearing the legendary ‘Quadrifoglio’ badge. The unveiling took place on the Italian car maker’s 105th anniversary. The car’s interior still remains a mystery, as the company has released only its exterior.

The Quadrifoglio version is powered by a Ferrari-tuned 510-hp six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that allows it to do a 0-100 km/h speed run in just 3.9 seconds. Power is sent to the rear axle as standard, but all-wheel drive can be opted.

The company has done everything it can to offer best performance on the Giulia – The sport sedan has a 50/50 weight distribution; the weight-to-power ratio is lower than 3 kg/ hp and the Active Aero Splitter on the front manages t0 improve downforce for improved performance and control even at high speeds.

Lightweight components have been used optimally to save weight. The propeller shaft, bonnet and roof are made of carbon fibre, while the engine, brakes, suspensions, doors, front and rear wings and many other body components are made of aluminum. The braking system’s weight has also been kept to the minimum with the use of aluminum elements and carbon fibre ceramic discs.

There’s a multilink suspension for the front axle and a new double wishbone suspension with semi-virtual steering axis for the rear axle. A torque vectoring system with a double clutch is also present, to allow the rear differential to optimize the torque delivery to each wheel individually.

The driver-focused cabin, although only left to imagination for now, is said to offer the best in terms of quality, safety, equipment and comfort.

  1. Any chance of that Demon ‘ Quadrifoglio’ coming to NA?

    • Yes. You see, Alfa Romeo wants to establish itself in the position of the German Big Three. The Quadrifoglio variant will be a perfect start for that. Moreover, you can’t compete the German Big Three without a high performance variant, not in NA at least. The Quadrifoglio variant is said to go on sale in NA in H2 2016.

  2. Disgustingly beautiful, those Italien Designers…bravo, bravo! But, what about quality build, durability, ergonomics, mileage, motor life, suspension character, and so on? Are the Italiens price competitive to the Germans and some of the Japs? If the largest Fiat, the 4dr 500c is having quality issues, will NA trust the Alfa brand? Sochiro Honda made Alfa a foundation for many models, yet the Alfa 164 seemed to have mechanical issues; though not as bad as the Honda/Sterling (British). Curious.

    • The German brands have been global players for years now. It will take time to get par with rivals in terms of the aspects you mentioned for the Italian brand, but not too long because it’s an FCA brand after all. FCA is well established in North America.

    Alfa Romeo Giulia is a beautiful car. I hope it is the first car of the rebirth of Alfa Romeo. For a long time, Alfa Romeo has produced beautiful cars. Many years ago he did. 35 years with return receiptHe produced beautiful cars. Now I hope it starts producing beautiful cars. After Julia, I hope to build SUVs and even car “premium” to compete with the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6!
