So as promised Alfa Romeo unveiled the new girl Giulia last night and ended years of anticipation and speculation. As expected, the long-awaited Alfa Romeo Giulia is a totally hot sports sedan that makes Audis, Bimmers, and Benzes in this class look like shoeboxes.
Granted, the car does look a bit weird at the front what with those huge headlights, and there is way too much MiTo in that front bumper. But on the whole, as a package, Alfa Romeo Giulia is a very nice looking brod. It is not just about the looks though. The new Alfa also has a lot of substance, which is just as well, because this car is supposed to carry a lot of weight for the brand and head its relaunch in the American market.
The Giulia is designed from the scratch as a sports sedan with a rear-wheel-drive architecture and 50/50 weight distribution. What’s more, besides the usual range of petrol and diesel engines, it will get a range-topping Quadrifoglio version with a Ferrari-developed V6 engine developing 510 horsepower and providing a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds. We’re back in the care-free days of the 80s fellas!
What we mentioned above is enough to get every petrolhead hot in the pants for the new Alfa Romeo Giulia. But here’s some more cool stuff for the more nerdy car lovers among you: the Giulia makes use of carbon fibre in the propeller shaft, bonnet, roof and seat frames, while aluminium is used extensively for the engine, suspension. It also comes with an improved DNA system featuring Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficient and Racing mode.Alfa Romeo Giulia Officially Unveiled,
