Hello everyone,
Out of curiosity, does anyone know the top speed of the 2.0 Giulia Ti (17-18-19 models). Ive heard mixed answers ranging from 146 mph to 160 mph but still unclear. Also I heard the madness and EC performance upgrades can increase the max speed as well. Any answers are appreciated! Thanks!!

The service info I have seen says 2.0 is ECU limited to 149 MPH... not sure about the 2.9
I've had the 2.9 up to only 165. I don't believe it's electronically limited, the drag limited top speed is supposedly somewhere between 190 and 200. I've also read the 2.0 is ECM limited to 149, only 6mph slower than the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima.

Speed limited to 149 MPH in NAFTA cars. EC P2 tune can remove the speed limiter if requested.

Yes it’s limited to 240 km/h which is 149 mp/h. The EC tune lifts that limit, if you have the guts to try it in the United Police States of America.
and you keep an eye on the speed rating for your tires ;)

I wonder if I could get over 149 at my local track (BIR). I believe it is the longest straight in the US at about 1 mile long and fairly flat. Won't find out until September though.

I have a 2017 Giulia Ti Sport Q4 with 225/40 19” Pirelli all season runflat tires. My Alfa has every option, including the Performance Package, and I hit 150 mph until the cpu shut it down with about 500 rpm left until red line. Sooo, without any modifications my Giulia did 150mph and I estimate, if I could bypass the limiter and take it slightly into the red, the car would do close to 160 mph!!! I absolutely LOVE my Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti Sport Q4!!

so you hit about 146-147 mph since speedometer reads high.

I don't care that you hit that speed. I definitely applaud your sensibility in having an appropriate song playing at that time as PROVEN by the profile pic ;)

I applaud you all.

I've never been in these speed territory here in the US. The northmost I came is about 125, was on an up-incline in WY recently when a California 20-30 somebody tried to tail me in a Toyota of some sort. I floored and it went up and up and up and till it seemed like the car was going to peak out, but again, I was running up a hill on West coast 91 gas. My personal top speed has been in completely legal space near Hamburg, Germany in a rental BMW. But that was still short of this @ 224 kph.

Open flat road with swamp on both sides so no deer, no cars, no side roads, no driveways. There's a time and a place, you just have to be smart and safe about it.
