M3-beating 375kW Alfa Romeo Giulia QV arriving in February
IT'S the most eagerly awaited Alfa Romeo so far this century, and we now know it's coming to Australia next February.
The rear-wheel drive Giulia sports sedan arrives in a matter of weeks, launched in four trims: Giulia, Super, Veloce and hot Quadrifoglio (QV).
The latter is a genuine BMW M3 and Merc-AMG C63 hunter, boasting a 375kW twin-turbo V6 which hits 100kmh in 3.9-seconds and on to over 300kmh.
And for those who enjoy such things, Alfa says the QV holds the current Nurburgring production sedan lap record at 7min 32sec.
The entry-level Giulia is no slouch either, using a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder producing 147kW and 330Nm, hitting 100kmh in 6.6 seconds. You also score leather, 18-inch wheels, sat nav, dual-zone climate and rear camera as standard.
A 2.2-litre diesel engine with 147kW/330Nm is found in the Super, returning just 4.2L/100km combined.
Pricing will be announced closer to February's launch.
