When the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde debuted at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the automaker said it would cost around $70,000 USD. The real cost has now been revealed, with the performance four-door ringing it at $73,595 including destination.
The Giulia QV will come standard with a Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivering 505 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque – that’s most important. An eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard (the U.S. won’t get the six-speed manual), along with a carbon fiber hood, roof, spoiler, adaptive suspension, a torque vectoring differential, an active front splitter and a carbon-fiber driveshaft.
Standard interior amenities include a 14-way power front seats with 4-way lumbar adjust, a leather wrapped dashboard, carbon fiber dashboard trim, a performance flat-bottom steering wheel with carbon fiber accents, contrasting accent stitching, aluminum paddle shifters and an 8.8-inch infotainment display with 3D navigation.
Only two optional extras can be ordered with the Giulia QV: Sparco performance seats and Brembo carbon fiber ceramic brakes. The carbon fiber Sparco seats, which are designed to be the lightest in the industry, offer better lateral support thanks to more aggressive bolstering. The carbon brakes deliver a 50-percent weight reduction compared to the stock iron discs and lower stopping distance to 102 feet. Alfa has yet to provide U.S. pricing for either.
