Thanks to the Alfa Romeo Giulia’s popular reveal we all know what the company’s game-changing sedan looks like.
With the car’s launch still some time away, though, few have seen or heard it on what will be its natural habitat: the road.
Now we have had that pleasure as the Giulia has surfaced in action on streets.
While the reason for its appearance isn't clear, what makes the footage pleasing is that, judging by its low ride height, low-profile tyres, and twin-tailpipe arrangement, the car captured is likely of Quadrifoglio Verde bent.
That would mean it’s packing a twin-turbo V6 that’s developed with Ferrari’s input, and promises to swing a 380kW bat at the high-performance compact sedan segment.
It would also explain the heavenly growl that escapes its rear end when the car sheds a gear.
Alfa Romeo plans to offer the Giulia sedan in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, and it's reported that the range so far will comprise a range-topping QV variant and a turbocharged four-cylinder variant.
More details about the car’s line-up, engine capacity, and transmission will be confirmed at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
