We've seen other great examples of police pursuit vehicles in Duba, United States and the Lamborghini Huracan that was gifted to the Italian State police. But the Italians have more in store! The Italian Carabinieri just took delivery of two Alfa Romeo Giulia QV's. Surprisingly, however, the QV Carabinieri isn’t going to be used as a pursuit vehicle, but will primarily be used to transport things like organs or blood during medical emergencies.
Bearing the iconic Quadrifoglio badge, adorned by all Alfa Romeo performance models, the Giulia Quadrifoglio embodies the essence of Alfa Romeo’s racing legacy. The beating heart of this ultra-high-performance sedan is an all-aluminum direct-injection 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, delivering a best-in-class 505 horsepower, as well as earning the title of the most powerful Alfa Romeo production car engine ever and the quickest with a class-leading 0-60 miles per hour (mph) acceleration in 3.8 seconds. Combined with an 8-speed automatic with aluminum column-mounted paddle shifters, which shifts in less than 100 milliseconds, the culmination of these performance attributes is a record-setting time at the Nürburgring of 7:32, making the Giulia the fastest four-door production sedan in the world.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio achieves these unprecedented figures with exclusive enhancements for ultimate performance. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is composed of a carbon fiber hood, roof, rocker panel moldings, rear deck-lid spoiler, segment-exclusive drive shaft, and active aero front splitter combined with aluminum body components for maximum weight savings that attributes to the near perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 supplies its 505 horses to the 19-inch staggered aluminum wheels (19 x 8.5-inch front and 19 x 10-inch rear), wrapped with Pirelli P Zero Corsa three-season high-performance tires, and utilizing a torque vectoring differential the Giulia Quadrifoglio ensures increased performance in every corner and on every straight away.
