Alfa Romeo to Launch Range Topping Giulietta Quadrifoglio
|   Monday, June 16, 2014
The latest Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde is expected to sport a price tag near $28,120, insiders reveal. This variant is placed right on top of Alfa Romeo Giulietta's base model and was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show this year. His vehicle draws power from the 4C's engine block, which lends the Giulietta Quadrifoglio, greater power to weight ratio.

The four cylindered, direct fuel injected turbo charged, 1.4 liter petrol engine, displaces 237 BHP, along with 238 ft lb of torque, which enables it to accelerate from 0 – 60 MPG, within 6.
seconds. It is based on a front wheel drive train, while being mated to a dual clutch automated six-speed transmission system. Peak power is achieved at the 6,000 RPM mark, while 80 percent of it is achieved near the 1,800 RPM mark.

Alfa Romeo currently uses a heavier, 232 BHP displacing petrol engine on their present generation Giulietta Cloverleaf, which is the present generation range topper. This vehicle is also mated to a heavier version of the six-speed transmission system that is currently used. Alfa Romeo has been working on different variants of their 1750 TBi engine block, which powered their entire Giulietta range.

The 1750 Turbo Petrol, is an updated version of this block, which was first successfully introduced in the 4C. The Giulietta Quadrifoglio features a new fuel intake system, with upgraded engine note, along with a range of exhausts systems. Its transmission system can be adjusted between manual and automatic, for greater power generation. Steering wheel mounted paddles are also available, in certain cases, while drive modes control power surge.

This vehicle has the sporty DNA of Alfa Romeo's senior creations, which is activated, by the simple push of a button. Some of the most prominent exterior upgrades on this vehicle include oversized 320 mm disk brakes from Brembo, rear exhaust pipes, bespoke body kit, 18 inch rims and special interior settings. Alcantara trim, leather seats and upholstery, aluminum parts, upgraded infotainment system, with an embroidered finish, are part of its standard kit.

Use of lowered sports suspension, tinted windows and upgraded infotainment equipments enhance general aesthetics, while Alfa Romeo confirms that this vehicle is a limited edition. Just 500 units of it are to be manufactured in total, out of which, just 100 are to be sold in the United Kingdom. Base prices are to start from £30,280, which is value for money, considering the different trim levels and other details.

Performance upgrades have been made, along with a minor boost to fuel economy. Their latest 1.4 liter MultiJet engine block is mated to a range of six speed TCT transmission system, which will be available for a lesser premium than its top spec model. Details regarding performance aspects and on street figures are yet to be ascertained, which can be possible, only after a comprehensive drive test. We are currently waiting for the official unveil at Good Wood this month, post which, official images and details are to be revealed.
