Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio QV: technological improvements

The acronym QV speaks for itself to any car enthusiast. They are the result of the more emotional and passionate side of Alfa Romeo, a firm linked to competition since its inception. A story that will not be truncated by the appearance of the coronavirus. Despite the exceptional situation, the firm has presented the update of the Quadrifoglio Verde variants of its Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio models . At the beginning of the year the restylings of these models were presented and, how could it be otherwise, now it was the turn of their more sporty relatives. Therefore, they welcome the technological and equipment improvements that the conventional 2020 versions already mount, sport the odd aesthetic touch-up and maintain the same power of 510 hp.

These ‘racing’ versions of the Italian saloon and SUV usually take the lead when it comes to performance. This 2020, on the other hand, they have in their own family the best of competitions: the Giulia GTA and GTAm . These special editions come to pay an explosive tribute to the 110-year history of Alfa Romeo . What better way to do it than by reliving the legend of the acronym GTA ? The words Gran Turismo Alleggerita were loaded with meaning, as are the letters QV now. The versions launched last March take advantage of the base of the Quadrifoglio to power its engine up to 540 hp, weighing only 1,520 kilograms. In addition, each client will be able to combine the colors to their liking, recovering legendary decorations such as red and yellow from the 1971 European Touring Car Championship. Only 500 units will be manufactured with prices ranging from 143,000 euros for the GTA to 147,000. of the GTAm .

However, the models that concern us today are more accessible and discreet. We still do not have the prices of the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Verde for our country. In return, we can tell you some of its improvements. The first changes are obvious thanks to the new colors, inspired by the centennial history of the firm. The 21-inch wheels (optional) or the new rear lights of the Stelvio do not go unnoticed either, but where we will really notice its evolution will be inside.
