Alfa Romeo’s 510hp Giulia Quadrifoglio Priced From 79,000€ In Italy, Laps ‘Ring In 7:39

Alfa Romeo unveiled more details about the Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde, including the price and the specs of its latest model.

The basic-spec version of the new, twin-turbo Alfa is set to cost 79,000€ (about $89,000) in Italy with sales starting during the last quarter of the year. Customers who wish to get first in line will have the opportunity to place their order online shortly after the Frankfurt Motor Show but only for the top-of-the-range version which comes equipped with carbon brakes and the ‘ultra-light’ carbon fibre seats, all for the price of 95,000€ (about $107,000).

Alfa Romeo has also announced that the Giulia Quadrifoglio has lapped the Nurburgring in 7:39.0, claiming the record for a saloon car, a time that’s 13 seconds faster than the lap set by the BMW M4 (7:52).

The new Giulia QV is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 ‘inspired by Ferrari technology and expertise’ which makes 510hp and 600Nm (442 lb ft) of peak torque. Top speed is rated at 307km/h (190mph) with the classic 0-100km/h (0-62mph) taking just 3.9 seconds. Alfa also announced best-in-class CO2 emissions at 198g/km.

With a dry weight of just 1524kg, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde claims the best weight-to-power ratio of its class apart from a perfect 50-50 weight distribution between the axles. Other bold statements include the most direct steering ‘on the market’ while the chassis setup uses a Torque Vectoring system and an Active Aero Splitter which generates 100kg of downforce at top speed.

Inside the cabin there is a 8.8inch TFT display for the Connect 3D Nav which is controlled by a rotary pad which recognizes the finger movement and an advanced voice recognition system. Alfa promises full connectivity with all mobile devices while the navigation features high-resolution 3D maps.

While Alfa Romeo still didn’t show us the more down-to-earth models, it seems that they are trying their best to make the Giulia QV the king of its class. A class which includes cars like the BMW M3/M4, the Mercedes C63 AMG and the Cadillac ATS-V. The new Alfa is expected to reach the UK and the US shores in 2016.

I am not quite sure on the stub nose, but it is worth a look based on the numbers.  I reckon it would be pushing $200k here though.

Starting around $140k and Jan 2017 delivery was what my dealer quoted.
