The storied Italian automaker, Alfa Romeo, has unveiled its all-new 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio for the first time in Canada at the 2016 Canadian International AutoShow.
The 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio is the first of a new-generation of vehicles built on an all-new platform and embodies Alfa Romeo’s mantra of La meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion), delivering race-inspired performance, advanced technologies, Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size sedan segment.
Crafted by Alfa Romeo artisans at the Cassino plant in Italy, the all-new 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio is the ultra-high-performance model in its lineup.
Incorporating next-level technologies, the Giulia Quadrifoglio features a Ferrari-derived 505-horsepower bi-turbo V-6 engine—Alfa Romeo’s most powerful production car engine ever—plus cylinder deactivation and a carbon fibre active aero front splitter for improved handling at high speeds.
Race-inspired performance is achieved courtesy of the Giulia’s extensive use of ultralight, high-strength materials, which include a carbon fibre driveshaft, hood, roof and more—all for a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio and near perfectly balanced 50/50 weight distribution, resulting in a 0-100 kilometre an hour (km/h) time of 3.9-seconds (0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.8 seconds) and a record-setting Nürburgring time.
And similar to all great Alfa Romeos, the Giulia features Italian design with proportions and attention to detail that enables a timeless Alfa Romeo style.
Alfa Romeo will also introduce the full-line of Giulia models for the premium mid-size sedan segment.
These Giulia models will include an all-new Alfa Romeo-designed all-aluminum four-cylinder turbo engine with direct injection, fuel-saving and emission-reducing MultiAir2 technology, and twin-scroll turbo technology for maximum responsiveness. The result of this impressive technology is a class-leading 276 horsepower on the entry-level Giulia.
In addition to rear-wheel drive, Giulia will also offer an advanced all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring for customers who require maximum traction and handling on all road surface conditions.
