At 505 horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde is the most powerful car in its segment. It’s the Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine’s significant power and torque output that helped the Giulia QV monster the Nurburgring Nordschleife and its long straightaways and soon owners of the sedan will be able to inject the car additional 100 horsepower thanks to German tuning firm Pogea.
Pogea fiddled with the Giulia QV’s software to boost its output from 505 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque to 604 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The company says this appears to be the limit of the engine’s hardware. It has a 690 horsepower Giulia QV planned, however that high-power variant will require physical component upgrades rather than just a software flash.
The Giulia QV has claimed top speed of 191 mph with the factory 505 horsepower output and we’re willing to bet it can reach or surpass the coveted 200 mph mark with Pogea’s tune. We’re sure the 7-minute 32-second Nurburgring record it set would also shrink by a considerable margin with Pogea’s upgrades. Color us interested.
