After Alfa Romeo’s 4C sports car series had hit America, many car enthusiasts were waiting, with bated breaths for Alfa Romeo to unveil their newest model, series or just anything to be honest. Rumors filled the void, with the name ‘Giorgio’ and a secretive group known as the Skunks sparked the curiosity of many a people.
It was then after a plethora of wait that Alfa Romeo released news of their new sedan. The ‘Skunks’ had actually been a group of engineers working on the new car, named after the Skunk Works engineers who worked at Lockhead. Giorgio had been the codename for the car that would be revealed to be the new Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Alfa Giulia 2016 Interior
The Italian company does not go overboard with the interior design, yet still keeps it simple and very stylish- in a sporty way. The entire dashboard is centered on an instrument panel, leather wrapped of course. The dashboard features a cluster of instruments such as AC controls, music, and radio all that jazz. It of course also has an informant LCD screen that gives you everything you need to know about your car. It actually has very few knobs and dials, making it a clean and sleek design.

What makes it unique is that it does not have that ‘wrap around’ interior design that most cars insist on having these days, though it is very driver orientated. The LCD panel and center console is wrapped in a great carbon-fiber case. The seats are in leather and Alcantra and give the car a very nice-premium feel.
2016 Alfa Giulia Review
For a car that came out of nowhere, it sure does a lot in the way of surprising its audience with its outrageous specs. Since no one had got their hands on it yet, it is unclear how it actually drives but it sure does look great on paper. Alfa uses their rear-wheel drive platform on this badboy, with the suspension using control arms or ‘appendages’ in the front to form a multilink arrangement in the back. The Quadrifoglio one-ups this by having torque vectoring.

The other great thing about this the car is that Alfa promises a 50/50 weight distribution, achieved by using a combination of aluminum and carbon fiber. It features an automatic transmission or six speed manual gearbox and then a choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The Quadrifoglio is an absolute monster offering 503 horsepower produced by the twin-turbo charged V6 engine. The normal or standard model will offer a four cylinder turbocharged V6 engine.
