Alfa Romeo has introduced key updates to the performance-oriented Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) models in its Giulietta and MiTo ranges.

The Giulietta gets the most attention, picking up the direct-injected 1.8 litre turbocharged petrol engine from the astonishing 4C.

The new power plant features an aluminium block and special intake and exhaust systems, which lift power and torque to 173kW and 340Nm respectively.

Alfa’s TCT six-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission has also been borrowed from the 4C, with no manual transmission on offer.

All this makes the new Giulietta QV somewhat quicker, with a new 0-100km/h time of 6.6 seconds - a 0.2 second improvement over the outgoing model - and running on to a top-speed in excess of 240km/h.

Other changes include larger exhaust tail pipes and a new paint finish to the front grille, door handles and fog light surrounds, along with new 17- and 18-inch wheel designs.

Inside, the QV gets a new instrument panel, a leather gear-shift boot and park-brake lever with white and green stitching, leather and Alcantara trimmed sports seats and a new steering wheel with white stitching.

The MiTo QV also gets a new 4C-inspired flavour, although no mechanical changes have been made.

A new Magnesio Grey matte silver paint finish and a revised rear spoiler feature externally, while the 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine remains from the previous model.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Giulietta badge, Alfa Romeo plans a special ‘Launch Edition’ of the new QV, limited to just 500 units.

The special edition will feature a carbon-fibre spoiler and side-skirts along with an 18-inch five-spoke wheel design, wrapped in an Alfa Red, Magnesio Silver or Competizione Red paint finish.

The updated QV models are expected to hit Australia later this year, likely around September.
