On 7 May, Alfa Romeo presented the new 2020 Quadrifoglio versions of its two flagship cars, the Giulia and Stelvio, at a press conference. Despite the critical situation, Alfa Romeo did not want to give up presenting its supercharged models to its loyal public. The revamped Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio are the showcase of Alfa Romeo excellence and express even more performance, winning DNA and unmistakably Italian style.
Class-leading performance is delivered by the powerful 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo engine, made entirely from aluminium and capable of delivering an impressive 510PS and 600Nm of maximum torque at 2,500rpm. The cars are also now equipped with a Level 2 ADAS package that includes Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Cruise Control with Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Control and Driver Attention Assist, as well as Traffic Jam Assist and Highway Assist that can be activated up to a maximum speed of 60 km/h.
But the news doesn’t end there. The roar of the Alfa engine has always made the hearts of millions of Alfa fans around the world beat faster, and in the new versions of the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio 2020, the soundtrack that accompanies the driving experience is guaranteed by a dual-mode exhaust system with four outlets which, in Race mode, becomes more aggressive and involving, with the possibility of equipping the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio with a new Akrapovič exhaust system, also dual-mode, made of titanium with carbon pigtails and characterised by an even more refined timbre.
As far as the interior is concerned, the style stands out for its quality: Alfa Romeo has worked to create an ergonomic and harmonious set of lines and instruments, volumes and spaces surrounding the driver. The new design of the central console has great tactile and visual impact and offers more space for storage. The steering wheel is new, as is the leather-covered gear lever, and the seat belts are now available not only in black, but also in a choice of red or green. On-board technology also includes a completely new infotainment system with a central 8.8″ touchscreen display, connected services and a redesigned interface. Among the Quadrifoglio’s exclusive new features are the Performance Pages, dedicated screens that display the car’s status in real time.
After impressing with the liveries of the GTA and GTAm, Alfa Romeo wanted to introduce new colours also on the Quadrifoglio versions, divided into four distinct categories called Competizione, Metal, Solid and Oldtimer. The latter includes the special Rosso 6C Villa d’Este, Ocra GT Junior and Verde Montreal variants, inspired by three iconic models from the past.
Fun is guaranteed at the wheel of these racing cars and Mediability is, as always, at the side of the great Arese company for everything concerning the press review and its analysis.
