New details are starting to emerge about the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
Autoedizione reports Sergio Marchionne has confirmed a new model, most likely the Giulia, will debut on June 24, 2015 when the Italian brand will turn 105. The vehicle in question was spied for the first time during tests in a Maserati Ghibli mule two weeks ago.
Codenamed "Tipo 952", the model will be the first for the brand to be based on a brand new architecture. This is the Giorgio platform, which is being developed by Maserati and will be used also on future Chrysler and Dodge products.
The Giulia is expected to be offered with a range of 4-cylinder diesel and petrol engines. A range-topping GTA version is reportedly also planned and it could be powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine from Maserati which will develop 480 - 520 bhp (358 - 387 kW). The car is rumored to be a rear-wheel drive with a dual-clutch gearbox and a limited slip differential. This should enable it hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in less than four seconds.
