Alfa Romeo recently showed the public its latest offering -- the Giulia Quadrifoglio. The unveiling was done at the start of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show held from Sept. 17 to Sept. 27. Created on the rear-wheel drive platform, the Giulia puts its focus on being agile and lighter. The Giulia’s shape is defined by its sporty foundation which also influences the design.
Most of the other parts like the engine, suspension, and brakes, to name a few, are composed of aluminum. Finally the rear crossmember is made from a composite of aluminum and plastic. But that’s not all. The ceramic disc brakes are made of carbon while the Sparco seats are composed of light carbon fiber.
This extra attention given to the materials is the same attitude that was applied on the Giulia’s interior, which is aimed at providing the best in comfort, equipment, quality, and safety.
The start button and all its main controls are integrated with the steering wheel much like a Formula 1 vehicle. The human-machine interface meanwhile is made even simpler through two user-friendly knobs that can change the Alfa DNA Pro selector as well as its Connect 3D Nav infotainment system.
Like the CDC, the Connect 3D Nav was developed in cooperation with Magneti Marelli. The Connect 3D Nav allows the Giulia to have more sophisticated functions and features like the next-generation human-machine interface (HMI).
Majority of the system is controlled through a Rotary Pad and can be viewed through an 8.8-inch TFT display that has been incorporated with the dashboard. However, it can also be controlled through voice recognition and even gesture recognition.
Thus the driver can control all features by just moving a finger. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio will display five models for the Motor Show with each having its own colors which are: Competizione Red, Montecarlo Blue, Trofeo White, Vulcano Black, and Vesuvio Grey.
Indeed the Giulia Quadrifoglio has a great design with its mechanical components wrapped in a muscular and tight package and largely dominated by short overhangs, muscular haunches, and long bonnet. It also has the longest wheelbase for its segment.
The use of simple and natural lines to enhance the vehicle’s shape and proportion, plus the elegant surface finish that displays style and purity, meets all expectations anyone could have of the Italian-designed Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
