So as the new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia makes its American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Italian car maker releases further details and specs of the car, along with a bunch of awesome new photos. They have also revealed what the entry-level Giulia is going to be like, and we can sum it up in one word: superb!
The Alfa Romeo Giulia every body is going to want in their garage is, of course, the Quadrifoglio version which is powered by a Ferrari-tuned 05-horsepower bi-turbo V-6 engine. The M5-rivaling Alfa is capable of making 100 km/h from zero in 3.8 seconds, has top speed of 191 mph, and has just banged in a Nurburgring lap time of 7:39. And yet it starts from just $70,000 in America. The QV can be ordered with carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes and active aero front splitter.
As for the entry-level Giulia, if you can call it that, the American-spec model comes with a 276 horsepower all-aluminum four-cylinder turbo engine with direct injection, fuel-saving and emission-reducing MultiAir2 technology. Rear-wheel-drive is standard on all models, but all-wheel-drive will be available on select models. Suspension-wise, you get double wishbone front suspension with semi-virtual steering axis and Alfa-link rear axle design with vertical rod.
As for the looks, well, Alfa Romeo Giulia is quite possibly the sexiest four-door sedan of this still very young century. We let you make up your own mind about it after seeing the new pictures, but before you do let us remind you the car is available in these colors: Rosso Alfa (Red), Vulcano Black Metallic, Silverstone Gray Metallic, Montecarlo Blue Metallic, Vesuvio Gray Metallic, Trofeo White Tri-Coat, and Rosso Competizione Tri-Coat (Red).
