Molapo Motors last week unveiled what is probably one the most powerful saloon car to have been made. The Alfa Romeo, Giulia limited edition which boasts of a V6 engine was introduced last Friday at the car dealership showroom and there is only one unit available in the country. Embedded with a cloverleaf on its fender which supposedly serves notice of the car’s calibre, 505 horsepower generated by an all-new 2.9 litre BI-Turbo direct injection V6, amplified with performance-enhancing torque vectoring, Alfa patented sport suspension and Alfa DNA Pro with Race Mode. The sporty car, which has a price tag of P1.1 million, has more specifications including race-ready leather seats, 19-inch forged wheels, a carbon fibre rear spoiler and an active aero front splitter. Alfa Romeo prides itself that it has always taken a unique and innovative approach to designs; a point of convergence between design and passion, between love for the most cutting-edge technology and a strong instinct to inspire emotions.
According to the car’s specifications, the Alfa Romeo Giulia’s lines are so exquisitely drawn that the attitude they project is simply second nature. These brilliant proportions are said to be based on something not readily apparent: the technical architecture of the whole car. The Giulia is said to boast an unmistakable identity – beneath all its beauty, materials are carefully selected to obtain near-perfect weight distribution. The car’s specifications outlines that optimal power-to-weight ratio is achieved through extraordinary engine performance and ultra-light materials, including a carbon fibre driveshaft and the use of aluminum in its engine and suspension, which all translates to greater efficiency and driving dynamics destined to inspire awe. While car has been designed with the driver in mind, nonetheless, safety and comfort for all passengers have been considered, hence exquisite materials such as fine Italian leather and natural wood trims.
