Alfa Romeo has revealed its new car - the Giulia - at its refurbished museum in Arese, Italy. The announcement was made on the occasion of the 105th anniversary of the ‘A.L.F.A’ - Alfa Romeo‘s first incarnation.
The top-end version of the Giulia is powered by a 510 hp V6 turbo engine, enough to propel the sedan from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 3.9 seconds. Owners have an option to change engine modes, ranging from Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficient to Racing. The Racing mode makes a lot of sense for a car maker that has such an illustrious history in grand prix racing.
In terms of the suspension, a new semi-virtual steering axis has been developed exclusively by Alfa Romeo that optimises the filtering effect and guarantees rapid, accurate steering by keeping a constant caster trail in corners.
A front Active Aero Splitter has also been fitted to the Giulia to actively manage downforce for higher stability and better cornering grip at high speed. The Integrated Brake System has also been introduced that combines stability control and a traditional servo brake for instantaneous brake response.
Finally, the interiors utilise premium material, including carbon fibre and real wood. Plenty of buttons hav been mounted on the steering wheel, in the same fashion as a modern Formula 1 car.
