Earlier this year Alfa Romeo gifted Italy’s Arma dei Carabinieri military police with two Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde performance sedans. The 505 horsepower four-doors are used by the police service for medical situations and other rapid response scenarios and can only be driven by those that have completed a performance driving course with Alfa instructors.
When Fiat Chrysler gifted the police with the two Giulia QVs, it also revealed the Italian police would receive around 800 service vehicles this year. The organization placed an order to receive Alfa Romeo Giulietta patrol cars, along with Jeep Reneagde and Fiat Panda 4×4 crossovers, and it has now received its cars.
In addition to the Giulietta, Renegade and Panda, the Italian police also received two Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce models. These vehicles, which are powered by Alfa’s 280 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and feature its Q4 all-wheel drive system, will be used in a similar fashion to the Giulia QV medical cars.
The Italian police celebrated the arrival of the first cars to join its freshened fleet during a special ceremony Monday.
