While everyone and thier mum was jumping up and down as Alfa introduced the Giulia QV to the American market, more significant news slipped by quietly.
The Giulia will offer shoppers class-leading performance from a 4 cylinder turbo. With a MultiAir2 2.0L Turbo, Alfa says they “will deliver a class-leading 276 horsepower and world-class levels of performance, efficiency, and refinement.” Ok deal.
For the sake of context BMW’s four-cylinder makes 240, Benz’s 241, Audi’s 252, and Cadillac’s 272.
But that's about all Alfa had to offer on the non-QV Giulias. They would much rather we focus on the fact that this is the most powerful Alfa Romeo ever built, ever.
Besides the Ferrari-fiddled-with 2.9L V6 Alfa also made a point to brag about some of the more mundane features of the QV.
Your 500+ pony family sedan will come standard with forward-collision warning, autonomous braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alerts and parking sensors.
Alfa announced that the 2017 Quadrifoglio begins production for North America in the second half of 2016 and will start around $70,000.
