After an absence of nearly thirty years, Alfa Romeo returned triumphantly to the rear-wheel-drive sport saloon game with the introduction of the Giulia. The sporty Alfa saloons of the intervening decades simply did not deliver the performance, dynamic goodness, or even quality of their competition, and so it was with bated breath that the motoring press and the public awaited the arrival of the Giulia. Would the car live up to the legendary bar set by the Giulia Super in the 60s and the 75 in the 80s? Certainly the initial indications were good: the car would be developed from a clean sheet by a small team of dedicated and enthusiastic engineers headed by the man whose previous project had been as the head of chassis development for the Ferrari 458 Speciale(!), Philippe Krief.
The hottest version, the Quadrifoglio is powered by a 2.9 liter twin turbocharged V6 reportedly derived from the V8 of the Ferrari California T. Delivering 505hp to a chassis that the press agreed was more fun and more capable than that of the benchmark BMW M3, the Giulia Quadrifoglio is the Alfa Romeo that enthusiasts have been waiting decades for. It was even available in Europe for a tantalizingly brief period with a conventional 6-speed manual.
This is one such example, which has covered 5.900 km from new with its single owner. Finished in Nero Vulcano with black leather interior with red stitching, it is equipped with red brake calipers and dark finish 5-hole 19" wheels. It is exceptional condition and is the ideal choice for the enthusiast seeking a car in nearly new condition the likes of which will probably never be offered again.
