This is the one we’ve been waiting for the most from Alfa Romeo. Sure, the 4C is an absolutely wonderful two-seater, but it was never meant to be mainstream. Its production is limited to only 2,500 units per year. What we’ve been craving for is a proper Alfa Romeo return to North America with something that can truly turn up the pressure on the likes of theBMW M3. That car will be the all-new Giulia Quadrifoglio (QV).
Revealed earlier this year, the Giulia QV is, without question, the high-performance luxury sedan we’re most excited about this coming year. Why’s that? For starters, it’s an Alfa. That’s special right there. And second, there’s a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 tuned by Ferrariunder the hood. Total output is 530 horsepower.
The impressive Alfa Romeo Giulia
returns to our attention with a couple of images that show how the high-performance model might look like in a new body style.
The Italian answer to the BMW M3, Mercedes-AMG C63and others in the segment has received a few tweaks courtesy of Theophilus Chin. The modifications have transformed its body from a four-door sedan to a more practical five-door fastback. In order to achieve the more practical design of the Giulia, the roof has been elongated, increasing the rear headroom.
With BMW offering the 3-Series GT, such a version of the Giulia looks plausible, but keep in mind that the automaker didn’t announce any plans for it, so it’s just an exercise.
