NEWS - Alfa Romeo Giulia is presented to the world

These are some of the first pictures of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, a car which takes the soul and passion behind the marque and uses cutting-edge technology and engineering to be as good as it looks. And that's one heck of a statement given the styling of this car. There's absolutely no denying that this is one of the prettiest cars Alfa Romeo have ever made. So I for one can't wait for it to hit the showrooms, at which point I'll be on the phone to the press office offering my organs to drive it...

The model you see in the pictures is actually the Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) version; a name that's become associated with the sporty models in the line up. Just in case you are interested, I have the QV version of Alfa Romeo's Giulietta coming for test in a couple of weeks, so keep a look out for that.

But don't just think that the Giulia QV is a sporty looking car. Oh no. The engine has been developed by engineers from a Ferrari background, and the resulting V6 turbo petrol powerplant delivers an impressive 510PS. That translates into a 0 to 62mph time of a staggering 3.9 seconds, while also offering surprising fuel efficiency thanks to electronically-controlled cylinder deactivation system. As with all next-generation petrol and diesel engines, this six-cylinder unit is made entirely of lightweight aluminium and will, of course, deliver that distinctive Alfa Romeo sound to complement the performance.

The biggest question remaining is whether or not the 'regular' models will look quite as good. Watch this space...
