Alfa Romeo at the 2015 Dubai International Motor Show
The new Giulia steals the show, in her new top of the line version marked by the legendary Quadrifoglio, which represents the new Alfa Romeo paradigm and the utmost expression of "mechanics of emotion".
On display for the first time at a Middle-Eastern and African exhibition, the new Giulia had her world début on the 24th of June-on the brand's 105th anniversary-with a performance by Maestro Andrea Bocelli and held at the renovated Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese (Milan). The brand's home has thus reopened its doors to the public, showing some of the most famous and innovative creations by Alfa Romeo.
Powered by a V6 cylinder 2.9-litre turbo-petrol with 510 HP, and inspired by Ferrari's technology and technical expertise, the Giulia Quadrifoglio guarantees a thrilling performance: a maximum speed of 307 km/h, a 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 3.9 seconds and a maximum torque of 600 Nm. Excellent performance, and always the greatest respect for the environment: the Giulia has proven to be the best in class where emissions are concerned as well, with 198 g/km of CO2.
In the limelight, there's also the captivating Alfa Romeo 4C, in Coupé and Spider versions, a modern icon of the brand and representing the sports soul written into to the Alfa Romeo DNA: optimum performance and excellent engineering designed for ultimate pleasure to drive in breathtaking style.
At their side, a Giulietta sporting the legendary Quadrifoglio, a green cloverleaf, an emblem that since 1923 has marked the highest performing Alfa Romeo models.
Gracing the stand, there's also a special 4C Coupè, the result of a collaboration between Alfa Romeo and Garage Italia Customs. Lapo Elkann's company creates tailor-made projects focusing on the unique personality of each type of client. The external finish of the 4C on display features a matte pearl gradient effect paint that goes from a black carbon fibre roof to "Accursio" red in the lower part. The engine cover has the same shading, thus completing the effect, thanks to the clear rear window revealing the colours and mechanics. The extensive use of Alcantara gives the car an additional exclusive feel: in black and red, on seats, door panels, roof rack and dashboard, with a special shading on the windshield pillars. The 4C Coupè, by Garage Italia Customs, therefore represents the modern evolution of the excellence of Italian craftsmanship in the world: the incredible experience at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo 4C is unique and unparalleled.
