It doesn't say much. You'd probably be better downloading the Giulia and Quadrifoglio brochures from alfaromeo.it. The preview brochure is a subset of that but does have the 59k Quadrifoglio price but no option prices.

Italian site only has Gasolio models .. Diesels .. don't want one of them :censored: !

And the list price of the cheapest is €35,500 which in today's money is £30,100 approx ..

Sterling prices for the Giulia will go up. The pound will remain weak against the euro, and the forthcoming negotiations with regard to the EU single market will be difficult to say the least.

Indeed it is highly unlikely the UK will remain a part of the EU single market, which means tariff barriers between the UK and EU will vary between 3%-10% depending on the type of goods and services, with cars attracting the highest tariffs. So I would think base models will be significantly more than £30k, so that most models will be over the significant £40k barrier for the new VED rates kicking in from April 2017. You really don't want to look at those new VED rates, you really don't.

Seems like buying early may be the best way to mitigate both the potential tariff (which surely won't apply until negotiations are finalised) and the VED rates coming in April 2017. I guess a lot depends on the delivery lag (expected to be 3 to 6 months) even if you place an order in September.

wikipedia refers to petrol turbo engines with max power around 5000 rpm. redline should start at about 5500 rpm. not exciting enough.
Yeah but where did they get that info from? Could be from anywhere ..

I don't loaded the Italian Giulia brochure from the alfaromeo.it site which is about as useful as a chocolate teapot ... :irked:

just checked wiki's sources... the one that should confirm that «5000 rpm» does not say anything at all about it. it refers to a «5000 rpm» but is linked to Q version max torque.

Alfa Romeo Giulia: svelato a Los Angeles un nuovo motore 2.0 turbo da 280 CV - Infomotori

link 26 in wiki's Giulias english page.
