Alfa Romeo has officially unveiled the highly-anticipated Giulia.
Described as "one of the most brilliant examples of automobile excellence," the range-topping Giulia Quadrifoglio features an aggressive front fascia with mesh grille inserts and an Active Aero Splitter which "actively manages downforce for higher performance and better grip even at high speed." The model also has slender headlights, a ventilated hood and front fender vents.
Moving further back, we can see aerodynamic side skirts, prominent character lines and attractive alloy wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system. Other highlights include a trunk-mounted spoiler, a rear diffuser and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.
Alfa Romeo declined to release interior photos but said the model will have a relatively small steering wheel and premium materials including wood and carbon fiber trim.
Power is provided by a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that develops 510 PS (503 bhp / 375 kW) and enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive will be optional.
Alfa Romeo was coy on additional information but confirmed the model has a 50/50 weight distribution as well as a carbon fiber hood, roof and propeller shaft. The model also has a number of aluminum components as well as a torque vectoring system and the "most direct steering on the market."
