The all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia has been unveiled to the international media on the 105th anniversary of the founding of A.L.F.A. (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) at a special event in the newly refurbished Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, Italy, on June 24, 2015.
A range of state-of-the-art engines power the new Giulia, with a bespoke unit created for the top-of-the-range Quadrifoglio version. Tuned by engineers from a Ferrari background, the flagship V6 turbo petrol powerplant delivers 517ps, propelling the Giulia Quadrifoglio from 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds, while also offering surprising fuel efficiency thanks to an electronically controlled cylinder deactivation system. The six-cylinder unit is made entirely of lightweight aluminum and also, its makers insist, delivers the distinctive Alfa Romeo sound to complement the performance.
