December 11, 2020. In the election of the «Sports Car of the Year» promoted by the specialized magazine AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS, no other category like the one dedicated to «Sedan and Station Wagon / Serial Cars» has had the participation of such a large number of competitors, no less than 24. And the winner was the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The top-of-the-range model of the series thus succeeds the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which prevailed in its category in the AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS competition exactly one year ago. Both vehicles have not only won the same award, but are also equipped with the same V6 Bi-turbo petrol engine, developing 375 kW (510 hp).

Giulia Quadrifoglio is the showcase of Alfa Romeo excellence and is a clear expression of performance, winning DNA and unmistakably Italian style. The renewal of the range is completed with this concentrate of sophisticated technical and performance solutions where the Giulia embodies the most refined expression of functional Italian design, in the purest Alfa Romeo style.
