Alfa Romeo: Giulia is a well-formed Italian hottie

Alfa Romeo: Giulia is a well-formed Italian hottie

Alfa Romeo – returning to what Sergio Marchionne correctly asserts are ‘real’ Alfas – delivers the goods with Giulia.

Light, lithe, packed with power – and the key spec, rear-wheel drive. Say ciao to the lovely Giulia.

The most eagerly-awaited – and soon, most lusted-after – piece of shiny new Italian metal on Euro showroom floors has been presented to press in its full glory…and Giulia is, quite frankly, glorious.

There are three spec levels – Guilia, Super and Quadrifoglio; three new engines – a 2.2-litre diesel (with either 111kW or 134kW; AlfaRomeoGiuliamanual or eight-speed auto); petrol is served v8ana tasty 2-litre direct-injected twin-scroll turbo petrol with 149kW with an eight-speed auto.

Finally, the one we care about the most: 380kW/600Nm of rorty Italian goodness, only for the Quadrifoglio, 2.9-litre, all-aluminium biturbo V6 that’ll hurl this toned Italian beauty to the legal limit in 3.9-seconds, hit the wall at 307km/h and with just 198g of C02 per km.

Plenty of detail about this smoking hot Italian bella has been released, and we’ll reveal the full-spec glory – hopefully with some confirmation/informed guesstimation of the Kiwi offering – early in the week.
