According to a recent report, the Alfa Romeo Giulia will offer a Quadrifoglio Verde variant with a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 that produces 300 hp.
New details are starting to emerge about Alfa Romeo's 2012 Giulia.
While rumors suggested the car would be rear-wheel drive, AutoExpress is reporting the Giulia will ride on a stretched version of the Giulietta's front-wheel drive platform. To make up for this handling faux pas, the Giulia will come with an Active Roll Control system that automatically stiffens the springs and dampers when the vehicle enters a corner.
Under the hood, a variety of engines will be offered. Petrol choices are expected to include a turbocharged 1.4-liter with 118 hp (88 kW / 120 PS) and 168 hp (125 kW / 170 PS) as well as a 1.8-liter with 200hp (149 kW / 203 PS). On the diesel side, there will be several JTDm options with outputs ranging from 104 hp (78 kW / 105 PS) to 200 hp (149 kW / 203 PS).
More interestingly, the Quadrifoglio Verde is rumored to adopt a modified version of Chrysler's Pentastar V6. It will reportedly displace 3.3-liters (instead of 3.6-liters) and feature MultiAir technology that will enable it to produce 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS).
The Giulia is scheduled to go into production in late 2012, so expect to learn more in the coming months.
