Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
By Akeem Pierre Johnson
BOASTING RECORD-BREAKING STATS IN BOTH PERFORMANCE AND SAFETY, COUPLED
WITH A BEWITCHING DESIGN, THE ALFA ROMEO GIULIA QUADRIFOGLIO RELIES ON MORE
THAN THE LUCK OF A FOUR-LEAF CLOVER TO BLOW AWAY THE COMPETITION.
There are many reasons why the Alfa Romeo Giulia is at the top of everyone’s list. For starters, it’s front-mounted all aluminium twin-turbo V6 engine and rear-wheel drive system create the best power-to- weight distribution in its class. The Giulia’s body is made of high-strength steel, its fenders and doors are made of aluminum, and its roof, hood, and drive shaft are crafted out of carbon fiber. All of these features contribute to the Giulia’s perfect balance.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio new all-aluminum 90-degree 2.9 litre twin-turbo V6 engine builds on Alfa Romeo’s legacy of innovation, as it delivers 505 hp, propels the sedan from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 191 mph. With a performance such as this, the Giulia Quadrifoglio beats the competition and is undoubtedly the top four-door production vehicle in its class.
This version of the Giulia marks the return of the legendary Quadrifoglio, a symbol of high performance and good luck that dates back to 1923. With this iconic rebirth comes simplistic elegance and seductive styling. Some of the Giulia’s standout features are the 19 inch aluminum wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights, active aero front splitter, four chrome exhaust tailpipes, and leather-wrapped dashboard laced with carbon fiber inserts. Its instrument panel has been asymmetrically-styled, keeping the focus on the driver.
The Italian automotive manufacturer has introduced a new efficient active safety system. This system includes an autonomous emergency brake with pedestrian recognition, forward collision and lane departure warning, all of which come as standard. These safety features have landed the car a five star Euro NCAP rating by reaching a 98% protection result for adult occupants: the highest ever achieved by a car.
