GIULIA VELOCE: POTENT, AFFORDABLE AND AVAILABLE

by T H WHITE on June 1, 2017

When the Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon was launched last year, the car on many people’s dream list was the 510bhp Giulia Quadrifoglio. Now, the latest addition to the Giulia line-up – the Veloce – combines much of the distinctive Italian styling and dynamic talents of the range-topping car with accessible performance and luxury at an affordable price.

Sitting between the flagship Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Giulia Speciale, the new Veloce is the first car to use a newly-designed all-aluminium 2.0 litre petrol engine producing 280bhp. Delivering the power through an eight speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive, the Veloce will reach 62mph in just 5.7seconds, going on to a top speed of 149mph. That is achieved without sacrificing economy either, as the new engine returns 46.3mpg on the combined cycle and emits just 141g/km CO2. An option is a new four-wheel-drive system which Alfa calls ‘Q4’ tech. The system allows up to 60 percent of torque to be sent to the front wheels when required, with rear-wheel drive remaining the norm during everyday driving.

The Giulia Veloce shares the sports exterior styling of the Speciale, but adds 18-inch 10-spoke Turbine alloy wheels. Optional Misano Blue paint is available exclusively on the Giulia Veloce. Inside, the driver focused layout is complemented by a choice of black, tan or red Italian leather sport seats and aluminium shift paddles on the steering column. Available now, the Veloce is priced from £37,935 OTR. For more information call us on 01793 393530.
