Alfa Romeo has just made their public debut with the all-new Giulia Quadrifoglio high performance saloon at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt. The first of a new generation, the new Giulia is pulling out all the stops with lightweight and advanced technologies, class-leading emissions, 510 horsepower from a 2.9 litre V6 twin-turbo engine developed in collaboration with Ferrari and rear-wheel drive.
The heart of the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is the
state-of-the-art innovative six-cylinder turbo petrol engine worked by
engineers with Ferrari background. This has resulted in an engine that
delivers 510 HP and a torque in excess of 600 Nm, along with a top speed
of 191mph and a 0-62mph time of just 3.9 seconds.
Even with its impressive speed the unique engine is also best in class
in terms of emission levels at just 198g/km, largely thanks to its
aluminium covered cylinder and excellent aerodynamics.
The short overhangs, long bonnet, muscular haunches and the longest wheelbase in its class are based around the technical design of the entire car with 50/50 weight balance and rear wheel drive. At the front, a new double wishbone suspension with semi-virtual steering axis has been developed to guarantee rapid, accurate steering. The new Giulia Quadrifoglio also debuts an advanced multi-link set up, with electronically-controlled Torque Vectoring on the rear, a new Integrated Brake System (IBS) resulting in a stopping distance from 62mph of just 32m and a new Actice Aero splitter.
All of the Alfa Romeo Giulia's advanced systems are controlled by the Chassis Domain Control (CDC), a technology which acts like the car's 'brains' and co-ordinates all the on-board electronics. Using the new Alfa DNA Pro, users can manage the actions of the various features and can choose from four driving configurations: Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficiency and Race (on high performance versions).
The exquisite attention to detail has continued on the interior offering a combination of quality, safety, equipment and comfort. With the central focus on the driver all main controls, including the start button are incorporated into the steering wheel. The connect 3D Nav of Alfa Romeo Giulia offers a number of features and functions, including next-generation HMI (human-machine interface). The machine is mainly controlled by the Rotary Pad but it can also be controlled via a superior voice recognition system and a gesture recognition system. Connect 3D Nav is also compatible with all mobile devices, whilst the navigation system employs high-resolution 3D TomTom maps and Dead Reckoning technology for areas with poor GPS reception.
UK sales for the all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio will begin in Autumn 2016 with pricing to be announced at a later date.
