Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Thursday gifted Italy’s Arma dei Carabinieri military police with two Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verdes in a special ceremony.
The two 503 horsepower sedans, which are powered by a Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin turbocharged V6 engine, were gifted to the Carabinieri by FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne and company chairman John Elkann.
The Carabinieri will use the high-performance compact sedans for rapid response situations and to quickly delivery emergency services. Only select Carabinieri will be qualified to drive the cars after having completed a high-performance driving course with Alfa instructors.
The Giulia QVs remain mechanically identical to the version civilians will soon receive, but is set apart with roof-mounted emergency lights, a tablet inside and emergency communication equipment.
FCA says it will deliver about 800 cars to the Arma dei Carabinieri this year including but not limited to Alfa Romeo Giuliettas, Jeep Renegades and Fiat Panda 4x4s.
