The New Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio represents more than just the most powerful Alfa Romeo ever created for road use. It represents a convergence of engineering and emotion that can only belong to a brand as fabled as Alfa Romeo.
Here's to a sports badge born 110 years ago that still stands for something totally original today: a passion for motoring unlike any other. Visceral. Energetic. Technological. Crafted.
THE MEANINGFUL BEAUTY - Since the beginning of civilisation, designers have turned to nature and human anatomy for technical and structural inspiration. The world’s most celebrated architectural feats managed to find the right balance between both human and structural necessities. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is the ultimate product of this higher design approach.
DRAMATIC WITHOUT DRAMA - The design of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is dramatic but has been created free of any unnecessary drama. It has a strong identity, characterised by essential features: the iconic 'Trilobe' grille, the aggressive hood design and sides enhanced with prominent beltlines. The extensive use of carbon fibre on the roof, hood, rear spoiler and sideskirts lends the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio an outstanding racing spirit. Rear-wheel drive and an ideal 50/50 balance have created a layout featuring a cockpit supported at the rear, a long front hood and a very broad front panel. Nothing is superfluous: everything is unmistakably Alfa Romeo.
DESIGNED ON LIFE - The world’s most celebrated architectural feats always strike the right balance between human, environmental and structural necessities. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is itself an exquisite product of this elevated design philosophy. The driver of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is always at the centre, in a cockpit designed with the same approach as the exterior: minimalistic, with a use of sophisticated materials such as carbon fibre and leather, and technology dedicated to a harmonious human/machine relationship.
MUCH MORE THAN JUST DETAILS - The details of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio are those of a true supercar. The ergonomic and ultralight Sparco seats combine technology, comfort and lateral support. The steering wheel, home to the red ignition button, is wrapped in leather. Ergonomic controls, infotainment and the driving position create a perfect harmony between driver and car in order to provide complete control of a unique driving experience from start to finish.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio can also feature the Sound Theatre by Harman Kardon with 900 W of power channelled to 14 speakers, including two surround sound and one subwoofer.
CUTTING-EDGE INNOVATIONS - The technology behind the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is created to enhance performance and to give great driving sensations. The driver/machine relationship is always at the core of all innovation to create a car that is a natural extension of the body, the mind and the heart of the driver.
ELECTRIC RESPONSE - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio features a 'brain' dedicated to vehicle dynamics. It’s the Alfa™ Chassis Domain Control (CDC), a module which integrates the actions of ESC, Alfa™ DNA Pro, Alfa™ Active Torque Vectoring, Alfa™ Active Aero Splitter, Integrated Brake System (IBS) and Alfa™ Active Suspension, assigning specific tasks to each one of these devices in order to achieve the best dynamic performance. TOP OF THE LINE SAFETY INNOVATIONS - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio combines pure driving emotions and ultimate safety systems to leave the driver and its passenger relaxed and comfortable. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) including pedestrian detection function, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Cruise Control with speed limiter, Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with rear cross-path detection and rear view camera with dynamic gridlines and parking sensors are all available as standard.
INTEGRATED BRAKE SYSTEM - This innovative electromechanical system combines the stability control and brake system. Not only does it allow for a significant weight reduction, this device optimises the feedback through the brake pedal, guaranteeing an almost instantaneous response and outstanding braking achievement of 100 km/h in just 32 metres.
IT'S TIME TO TAKE FLIGHT ONCE AGAIN -The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio isn't just the fastest road sedan ever produced by Alfa Romeo. The most important emotion at the wheel that this sports car can deliver is pure thrills. Everything is engineered for uncompromising driving pleasure. The road was not built to be a cage, that's why the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio passes down a sense of freedom that rises from its very heart: the powertrain system.
POWERFUL TO THE CORE - The heart of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a gasoline powered 2.9 V6 bi-turbo engine with 90° opposed cylinders. The engine delivers 375 kW and 600 Nm of torque between 2500 and 5000 RPM. This new engine was developed in close collaboration with Ferrari. Made entirely of aluminium, it is extraordinarily powerful, yet lightweight. CHANGE INTO PASSION - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio features an Automatic 8-gear transmission, designed to give the driver complete control. Light and precise, and combined with responsive steering, it offers extraordinary emotion and a driving pleasure that is unique in its category.
SHIFTING THE POWER OF BALANCE - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is more than a showcase for the best power–to–weight ratio in its class, it's a study in how to use that power. It’s ideal 50:50 weight distribution creates optimal balance and showcases the advantage of a rear–wheel–drive system in a front-engined vehicle. By pairing rear–wheel drive with the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio’s front–mounted, all–aluminium 6–cylinder engine, the Alfa Romeo engineering team was able to carefully distribute weight throughout the chassis. PATENTED DYNAMICS SOLUTIONS - Alfa Romeo Giulia is equipped with a new patented AlfaLink™ scheme: Front Double wishbone with semi-virtual steering axle and rear 4-and-a-half links.
Front double wishbone with semi-virtual steering axle keeps the front wheels perfectly perpendicular to the ground even in fast cornering situations, improving steering wheel torque linearity by 20% and reducing understeer. The rear 4-and-a-half links is able to provide best-in-class handling (lateral grip) while offering premium comfort. ALFA™ ACTIVE TORQUE VECTORING - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is equipped with an innovative system that ensures the optimal distribution of torque to the two rear shafts, thanks to an electronically controlled differential featuring two clutches. This results in greater traction and more secure handling, even at high speeds, in curves, and on any type of road surface.
ALFA™ ACTIVE AERO - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is the only saloon car in the world with an Active Aero splitter: a carbon appendix positioned under the front bumper. At over 100 km/h it opens thanks to two actuators controlled by the Alfa™ CDC (Chassis Domain Control), providing additional stability by increasing the downforce, especially in high-speed curves. The development of aerodynamics is the result of thorough wind tunnel testing. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has a natural downforce coefficient (Cz) of -0.1: the higher the speed, the greater the downforce applied to the car which gives it greater stability and manoeuvrability.
ALFA DNA PRO - The New Alfa™ DNA Pro, thanks to interaction with the Chassis Domain Control, instantaneously adapts the cars behavior to the selected driving mode. RACE: activates the overboost function and enhances the exhaust sound for driving on track. DYNAMIC: delivers sharper brake and steering-wheel response for advanced on-road driving. NATURAL: is comfort suspension setting for perfect balance in your day to day drive. ADVANCED EFFICIENCY: enables the engine to maximise energy savings and dynamic efficiency. Most suitable driving mode in the case of low grip conditions.
STOP&START - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio combines extraordinary performance with great efficiency. By enabling the Advanced Efficiency mode through the Alfa DNA™ Pro, the 2.9 V6 engine can operate on only three active cylinders. The latest generation Start & Stop system also provides additional fuel savings in city traffic.
EXTENSIVE USE OF ULTRALIGHT MATERIALS - The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio's body is cast in high–strength steel, wings and doors in aluminium, and wears a carbon fibre hood and roof. Furthermore, carbon fibre aerodynamic appendixes and driveshaft work in conjunction with all-aluminium suspensions to create motoring’s perfect balance. CYLINDER DEACTIVATION - All electronic systems operate smoothly in order to help the driver in minimising fuel consumption. And, thanks to the electronically-controlled, patented cylinder deactivation, the New Giulia Quadrifoglio can cover 100 km on just 8.5 litres of fuel and emits only 198 g/km of CO2 (combined cycle).
FROM SUPERSTITION TO VICTORY - The Quadrifoglio (Four-leaf clover) story began as simple 'good luck' charm. Yet it tended up as magical symbol, representing track success and race victories for Alfa Romeo and its drivers. When Ugo Sivocci won the Targa Florio in 1923, his four-leaf clover crossed the line before he did. Since then, the Quadrifoglio has accompanied Alfa Romeo on its most legendary victories: from the P2 at the World Championship in 1925 to the Formula 1 World Championship with the "Alfetta" 158 and 159 in 1950 and 1951 respectively. It is evidence of the kind of luck you can build when you take performance and engineering as seriously as Alfa Romeo does.
