2017 GIULIA QUADRIFOGLIO

MSRP* starting at $ 72,000

TECHNOLOGY

Shifting the Balance
of Power

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is more than a showcase for the best power-to-weight ratio in its class3 — it’s a study in how to use that power.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio has a front-mounted, all-aluminum twin-turbocharged V6 engine and rear-wheel-drive system that create a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution with optimal balance.

A body in high-strength steel, fenders and doors in aluminum, a carbon fiber hood, roof and driveshaft, available front seat frames and aerodynamic appendices work in conjunction with the patented all-aluminum suspension to create a near perfect balance. 

TECHNOLOGY

Intelligence in Every Move

This high performance sedan offers innovative technologies for first-rate dynamic performance and driving pleasure.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio is the only sedan in the world to be equipped with an active aero front splitter3. This adjustable carbon fiber spoiler is integrated into the front lower fascia. Sophisticated and electronically controlled, it dynamically balances and adjusts overall downforce. On straights, the splitter is closed to minimize resistance and drag. On corners — or when braking — it opens up to provide up to 220 pounds of downforce for optimum balance.

Torque vectoring technology further positions the Giulia Quadrifoglio at the top the premium mid-size sedan segment. This system controls wheel spin by optimizing the power distribution between wheels in traction. There’s no loss of power— just better traction and control7.

TECHNOLOGY

Alfa DNA Pro Drive Mode Selector

The Giulia's intuitive interior is fully committed to the driver's every need, offering easy access to vital and next-level technologies. The knob for Alfa Romeo’s DNA Pro Drive Mode Selector is on the center console. It features four selectable modes that allow the driver to customize the experience by choosing from Race, Dynamic, Natural and Advanced Efficiency.

The Alfa DNA Pro Drive Mode Selector, thanks to its interaction with the Chassis Domain Control, instantaneously adapts the car behavior to the selected driving mode:

  • DYNAMIC delivers sharper throttle, brake and steering wheel response for sporty, on-road driving, and a throatier exhaust note.
  • NATURAL is a comfort setting for an ideal balance for daily driving.
  • ADVANCED EFFICIENCY enables the cylinder deactivation to maximize energy savings and dynamic efficiency.
  • RACE activates the overboost function for increased torque limits and allows for maximum pedal response for ultimate sport driving.

TECHNOLOGY

Transmission

The Giulia Quadrifoglio pairs rear-wheel drive with an 8-speed transmission to give the driver better control. Light and precise with responsive steering and race-inspired performance, the Giulia arouses powerful emotions for unparalleled driving pleasure.

PERFORMANCE

The Heart of Alfa Romeo

An Alfa Romeo always stands out for the innovation of its engine. For over a century, Alfa Romeo has introduced many industry firsts with innovative technologies that contribute to stellar performance.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio continues this tradition with an all-aluminum 90º 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that delivers a class-leading 505 horsepower4 and 443 pound-feet of torque between 2,500 and 5,500 rpm. It launches from 0-60 in a class-leading 3.8 seconds3 and achieves top speeds of 191 miles per hour.57

Amazingly, the Alfa Romeo Brand's most powerful production car engine is also designed to deliver world-class levels of efficiency. An electronically-controlled cylinder deactivation system reduces fuel consumption by shutting down cylinders when extra power is not needed, and a stop/start system stops fuel flow and shuts down the powertrain when the Giulia is at a full stop.

PERFORMANCE

Class-Leading Performance

The Giulia Quadrifoglio’s use of ultralight, high-strength materials, advanced technologies and supercar power and handling convert into priceless driving dynamics.

These formidable stats lead to another impressive distinction: with a lap time of 7:32, the Giulia Quadrifoglio is the fastest four-door production vehicle to take on the demanding Nürburgring track.3

PERFORMANCE

Alfa Active Suspension

An innovative active damping suspension dynamically adapts its response depending on driving conditions and the mode selected with Alfa DNA Drive Mode Selector.

Alfa Romeo's double wishbone front suspension with semi-virtual steering axis provides rapid and accurate steering. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has one of the most direct steering ratios in its segment, allowing the driver to tackle high lateral acceleration with a consistently perfect footprint.

Alfa Link™ rear axle design with vertical rod helps ensure top performance, driving pleasure and passenger comfort.

STYLE

Iconic Italian Design

Alfa Romeo stirs the emotions with its rich history and captivating mix of state-of-the-art technology, race-inspired performance and seductive styling.

Born in Milan, Italy, Alfa Romeo has always sought the perfect balance of these elements, to fashion form on substance, without it becoming mere function.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia provokes the senses and is quintessentially Italian and unmistakably Alfa Romeo.

STYLE

The Driver is the Center
of the Universe

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio was built around the driver. Designers focused on simplistic elegance, with a focus on incorporating the essential elements for performance.

Inside the Giulia features a high-level of craftsmanship that starts with an asymmetric-styled instrument panel featuring a driver-focused cockpit. Wrapped in ultra-premium leather and Alcantara®, and highlighted by authentic carbon fiber, aluminum and accent stitching, the Giulia features a bespoke look that could only be conceived in Italy.

And for your listening enjoyment, there’s an available 900-watt Harman Kardon® Surround Sound System with 14 speakers, including two surround sound speakers, one subwoofer, 12 channels and a high-speed amplifier with DSP for 7.1 matrix surround sound. 

ORIGINS

Quadrifoglio is Back

The all-new Giulia marks the rebirth of the Quadrifoglio, the symbol of the most legendary winning race cars in the history of Alfa Romeo.

For the exterior, the stand-out features include 19-inch aluminum wheels, available Carbon Ceramic Brakes, Bi-Xenon Headlamps, an active aero front splitter, four rear Chrome Exhaust Tailpipes, functional vents on the front hood and fenders, Alfa Romeo signature grille and aerodynamic carbon fiber appliques.

The interior is rich in details and made with exceptional materials. The dash of the Quadrifoglio is leather-wrapped, enhanced by genuine carbon fiber inserts. The available lightweight Sparco® carbon fiber seats are upholstered in Alcantara® and leather, detailed with contrast stitching. The reduced-diameter performance steering wheel is leather-bound and features the Alfa Red start button.

ORIGINS

A Symbol of High Performance & Good Luck

It began as a simple request for good luck and ended up becoming a symbol for something even more magical: track records and race victories from Alfa Romeo and the drivers who campaigned them. In 1923, the legendary Alfa Romeo race car driver Ugo Sivocci wanted to break a string of secondplace finishes. So to prepare for the legendary Targa Florio race in Sicily, he painted a white square with a "Quadrifoglio," or four-leaf clover, on the front of his Alfa Romeo RL Targa Florio. As luck would have it, he finished in first place. In the same year, Sivocci was track-testing a new car that didn’t yet bear his lucky symbol. Tragically, he crashed and lost his life. And a legend was born.

This marked the beginning of a tradition: all future Alfa Romeo race cars would bear the four-leaf clover on a white triangle — with the missing point symbolizing the loss of Sivocci. Post-World War II, the Quadrifoglio was also used to designate high-performance Alfa Romeo street vehicles like the 1963 Giulia Ti Super, the 1965 Giulia Sprint GTA and now, the all-new Giulia Quadrifoglio. Today, Sivocci’s clover remains a symbol of race-worthy capabilities and, of course, a symbol of good luck.

ORIGINS

You Don't Know a Car
Until You Know its History

The reverence held for Alfa Romeo has only grown with each milestone along the way.

In 1965 Alfa Romeo introduced a great automobile – the Giulia Sprint GTA. The lightweight GTA 1600 (“l’Alleggerita”) was a heavyweight at the races, leaving competitors in its wake race after race.

In 1966 it won 1 European and 9 national championships; in 1967 it clocked up 2 European and 8 national championships. It was the first touring automobile to complete the Nürburgring circuit in less than 10 minutes.

The new Giulia Quadrifoglio is undeniably inspired by its namesake of a half century ago — in its elegant style, alluring details and impressive aerodynamics — and its own set of breakthrough innovations. In all, not only is the thrill of driving back; it’s better than ever.

SAFETY

Safety Features

Equipped with innovative safety and security features, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio leverages advanced driver-assist features that increase the feeling of vehicle responsiveness and control. Its Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB)13 system combines radar and a centrally-mounted camera to monitor the road and detect an imminent crash.

The Automatic Collision Warning14 system alerts the driver by autonomously slowing or braking the vehicle as needed, to avoid the crash or mitigate its effects. It’s yet another way Alfa Romeo keeps its drivers safe and sound.

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+56 when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlamps. Award applies only to vehicles built after May 2017.

SAFETY

Integrated Brake System

No high-performance sports car is complete without a dynamic set of brakes.

This is why the Giulia Quadrifoglio is backed by an advanced Integrated Braking System that delivers a near instantaneous response for reduced braking distances. The unique, electro-mechanical solution also ensures extremely precise brake pedal feed-back which virtually eliminates Antilock Braking System vibrations when emergency braking.

With its advanced stability control and total coordination between the brakes and steering wheel, the state-of-the art system helps you safely optimize every curve.7
