To celebrate its 60th anniversary, Giulietta is also available in a new Quadrifoglio Verde version, a true expression of Alfa Romeo’s DNA.
With respect to the other versions in this range, the new Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde is characterised by a decisive look and a strong personality. In addition, it features the exclusive engine inherited from the Alfa Romeo 4C supercar: the new 240 HP direct injection 1750 Turbo Petrol aluminium-block engine combined with state-of-the-art ‘Alfa TCT’ 6-speed twin dry clutch transmission.
To mark the launch, Alfa Romeo will present a special ‘Launch Edition’ Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde in a limited edition of only 500 vehicles featuring specific components such as: carbon spoilers and mirror fairings, front and rear sports DAMs, side skirts and 18" alloy wheels with five holes and glossy Antracite finish. The Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde ‘Launch Edition’ will be available in Alfa Red or in Competizione Red (triple coat) in addition to the exclusive matt Magnesio Grey livery.
Outside, the car is distinguished by a ride typical of a true sports car and by the legendary ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ emblem located on the left side panel, near the direction indicator. Furthermore, a glossy ‘antracite’ finish for mirror fairings, front grille, door handles and fog light frames distinguish even further the new Quadrifoglio Verde within the Giulietta range.
The new version’s aggressive look is highlighted by specific large exhaust tail pipes and 17” or 18” alloy rims that reveal the braking system ‘by Brembo’ with 4-piston fixed red brake calipers and discs oversized by 320 millimetres.
Attention was paid to details and high quality materials were chosen to represent the ultimate expression of Italian style. In particular, the black sports arrangement stands out and is further enhanced by the new instruments with QV logo and by the new leather and Alcantara trim wraparound sports seats with built-in head restraints. The new moulded steering wheel with leather trim and contrasting white stitching is supplied as standard. The gearbox boot and the parking brake lever are leather coated with white and green stitching. Aluminium sport pedals, a black roof and special mats complete the new version’s interiors.
After its introduction on the Alfa Romeo 4C, the range’s top performing engine is now fitted on the new Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde: the new direct injection 1750 Turbo Petrol aluminium-block engine delivers 240 HP at 6000 rpm and has excellent specific torque and power values for its category, namely: 194 Nm/l and 135 HP/l. Extraordinary elasticity and sportiness are ensured by the 340 Nm max torque that remains stable between 2100 and 4000 rpm, but is already 80% available at only 1800 rpm.
The 240 HP direct injection 1750 Turbo Petrol engine implements an innovative aluminium block and specific intake and exhaust systems which have been optimised to enhance the sports appeal of the car even further. In addition, it boasts cutting-edge technical solutions including direct fuel injection, dual continuous variable valve timing, a turbocharger and the revolutionary scavenging control system that gets rid of any turbo lag.
With this engine, the Giulietta’s flagship can exceed 240 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 6.6 seconds, that is 2 tenths of a second less than the previous version with manual gearbox. The driving emotion is further enhanced by a roaring sound produced both by the new fuel intake unit magnifying the low frequencies and the Alfa Romeo engine typical roar.
This impressive level of performance has been achieved with minimum impact on the environment: thanks to multiple injection control and advanced anti-friction and energy loss reduction systems, the emissions of the ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ version meet the strict limits of Euro 6.
As the Quadrifoglio Verde is launched, the ‘QV Line’ pack is added for the Giulietta. In this way, the ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ flair is also made available to the Distinctive and Exclusive trim levels fitted with other engines (with the exception of the 105 HP 1.4 Turbo Petrol and the 120 HP 1.4 Turbo Petrol LPG engines).
The ‘QV Line’ Giulietta is identified by a special external badge and by a ride typical of a true sports car, the braking system ‘by Brembo’, the front headlights with dark finish, the Privacy rear windows, side skirts and special glossy ‘antracite’ finish sports elements for door mirror fairings, door handles, front grille and fog light frames. The same sports feel can be found inside the vehicle, as shown by the black dashboard, the aluminium sports pedals, leather and Alcantara upholstery for the sports seats, the moulded steering wheel with white stitching and the kick plate with the Quadrifoglio Verde logo.
