This time around the brand’s new high performance mid-size Giulia QV let slip with a few more performance tidbits.
Alfa Romeo has also previously divulged the Giulia QV’s 3.9 second 0-100km/h time, which again makes it top dog next to the 4.1 second M3 and 4.0 second C63 S. Top speed maxes out at 307km/h.
New info released at Frankfurt includes the all-important Nurburgring lap time.
We’ve seen and heard it at the track previously, but we now know the Giulia QV stops the clock with a 7:39 lap time. The M4 (in the hands of German publication Auto Motor Und Sport) recorded a 7:52 time
Also released, a dry weight (before fuel, lubricants, and coolant, etc) figure of 1524kg to go with the Giulia’s 50:50 weight distribution.
Finally, Alfa Romeo has announced estimated pricing for the Giulia QV in its home market.
In Italy you’ll be able to pick one up from €79,000 (AU$124,000) which sees it list well above the €73,630 (AU$116,000) C63 S - Comparatively the AMG is priced from $154,900 here, keeping in mind different spec-levels, tax regimes and import duties.
The rest of the Giulia range remains under wraps, but mainstream four-cylinder petrol and diesel variants are expected to make up the bulk of the range outside of the headline QV.
An Australian introduction has been confirmed, but the Giulia range won’t arrive here until late 2016 or early 2017.
