Fiat Chrysler designer Ralph Gilles recently stated that technology is having a negative impact on the automotive industry because it’s driving the costs of cars up, but in the case of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde, it’s hard to argue that the technology at play is doing anything but making the car better.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde is one of, if not the most, technologically advanced cars Alfa Romeo has ever made. It has an active-aero front splitter, a twin-clutch ear-differential with torque vectoring, adjustable active dampers and the first-ever ‘integrated braking system’, which replaces traditional electronic stability control
And brake booster systems.
Perhaps the most exciting advancement on the Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde is the Chassis Doman Control system, which is described by Alfa Romeo as the ‘brain’ of the car. The CDC system coordinates all of the vehicle’s active systems, (stability control, torque vectoring, adaptive damping suspension and active aero front splitter), and uses predictive technology to keep the car balanced and neutral no matter the driving situation.
Other technologies include a cylinder deactivation system for the 505 horsepower 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, the extensive use of aluminum of carbon fiber and function aerodynamic pieces such as the rear lower diffuser and underbody.
