Due to arrive on local shores on February 16, the Giulia Quadrifoglio will become one of the most powerful sedans in its class. It features a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 developed by Ferrari, developing 375kW and a monstrous 600Nm of torque.

This mechanical masterpiece manages a 0-100km/h sprint of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 305km/h. It also holds the record for the quickest-ever lap at the Nurburgring for a production sedan.

International buyers are able to choose between a six-speed manual transmission or eight-speed automatic, whereas Aussies will be offered the auto only by the looks of it, both with rear-wheel drive in any case. With these credentials it will be looking to capture BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C 63 buyers.

Compared with these rivals, the Giulia QV’s starting price of $143,900 makes it one of the most affordable. The C 63 kicks off from $155,615 while the M3 starts from $139,615. Needless to say, it is expected to become one of the most popular in the class and in Alfa’s showroom.

Regular variants will join the twin-turbo beast, including turbocharged four-cylinder options in either petrol or diesel guise. Prices on the regular variants are expected to be announced soon, with details already confirmed here.
