The Giulietta Quadrifoglio was very popular with enthusiasts of the Italian brand. Although no longer in the range, here’s a little video that should make purists smile.
With the merger between PSA and FCA under the new Stellantis identity, Alfa will have to review its plans. A supercharged Giulietta is unlikely to be part of the brand’s “to do list” in the next few years. However, a new video from the AutoTopNL YouTube channel shows that the brand offered a car with more than acceptable performance.
This Italian bomber got its power from a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder that sent power directly to the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The compact develops 240 horsepower and 340 Nm of original torque. However, the description of the video indicates that the car develops 310 horsepower. Suffice to say that the car in question must certainly have benefited from a small update of its engine mapping. This must have made our Dutch colleagues even more eager to take him on an unrestricted portion of the German motorway.
The Giulietta Quadrifoglio is fast. The driver effortlessly reaches 244 km / h. When the automaker introduced the model about 5 years ago, Alfa claimed the hormone-fed compact could exceed 240 km / h. The brand also said it could go from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds. It’s far from being a benchmark in this area, but for a car that only carries a small 1.75-liter 4-cylinder, it’s not so bad! The Alfa in the video appears to be a 2014 model, as that’s when the automaker gave it a little facelift and overhauled the dashboard design with a new Uconnect infotainment system.
Unfortunately, for now, the Giulietta and the Giulietta Quadrifoglio are no longer part of the range. Nevertheless, production of a new model, the Tonale compact SUV, is expected to begin in September, although the company has yet to unveil the production version.
