Alfa celebrates Giulietta's 60th by giving it the 4C's turbocharged four-pot.
A new Quadrifoglio Verde (Italian for 'green four-leaf clover) variant of the Giulietta will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show next week as Alfa celebrates 60 years of the stylish hatchback. The updated Giulietta QV comes packing the Alfa 4C's 1.75-liter turbo-four paired with the carmaker's TCT six-speed dual-clutch transmission. Rated at 240 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, the hot-hatch is good for a 6.6-second 0-62 mph time and 149 mph top speed.
A new intake system improves the exhaust note, while larger exhaust pipes, a rear splitter, new 17- or 18-inch alloys, special badging and gloss anthracite badging differentiates this from the stock Giulietta. Alfa also plans 500 'Launch Edition' models available with a new matt Magnesion Gray paint job, as well as Alfa Red and Competizione Red. Other exclusive touches include modified bumpers, revised side skirts, carbon-fiber spoilers and gloss anthracite 18-inch alloys. Inside, the Giulietta QV comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sports seats, leather/Alcantara upholstery, revised dials, alloys pedals and 5- or 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen display.
