March 15, 2017 – All of the legendary Alfa Romeo models combined heritage, speed and beauty, making them the highest expression of Italian style in the automotive world, and the new Giulia, which has just been launched in Lebanon by Gargour Automotive Company (GAC), the only authorised distributor of Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Mopar brands in Lebanon, is no exception.
“The launch of the stunning new Giulia sees a new page being written for the brand that never ceases to surprise with a model that combines the past, present and future and is one of the most brilliant examples of Alfa Romeo’s automobile excellence,” said Negib Debs, General Manager of GAC during the launch event.
Gargour Automotive Company launched the stunning new Giulia with a glittering event at the company’s flagship Dora showroom that was made even more special by the presence of Miss Lebanon, who was presented with the keys to a brand new Alfa Romeo Giulietta during the launch.
“Given that Alfa Romeo’s are renowned for their beauty, it’s only fitting that a beauty queen should drive an Alfa Romeo,” added Debs.
The new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is undeniably inspired by its namesake of a half century ago – in its elegant style, alluring details and impressive aerodynamics – and its own set of breakthrough innovations. All in all, not only is the thrill of driving back – it’s better than ever.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia line up comprises four trim levels – the 280hp 2.0-litre V6 powered Giulia, Super & Veloce models plus the brand’s new benchmark, the Giulia Quadrifoglio (QV), which is equipped with a powerful 510hp six-cylinder 2.9-litre turbo petrol engine inspired by Ferrari technology and expertise. Both engine options are made in Italy and built entirely in aluminium.
The Giulia delivers outstanding performance levels, but in an environmentally-friendly way as always, ranking best in its class in terms of emission levels, with 198 grams of CO2 per kilometre. And Alfa Romeo engineers also focused on safety features – the car is designed to brake from 100 km/h to 0 in less than 32 metres.
Genuine Alfa Romeo performance is fitted like a tailor-made garment with a distinctive design that expresses three typical features of Italian style – a sense of proportion, simplicity and surface quality finish. The entire creation pivots around the driver and the promise of an exhilarating driving experience with sensitive steering, responsive acceleration and prompt shifting and braking.
The Giulia also features perfect 50/50 weight distribution across the two axles, a sophisticated suspension system that is an Alfa Romeo exclusive and the most direct steering available in the market.
Finally, the Alfa Romeo Giulia combines extraordinary engine performance and ample use of ultra light materials, like carbon fibre, aluminium, aluminium composite and plastic, to obtain the best weight-to-power ratio (lower than 3), enabling it to achieve a dry weight of just 1,524 kg.
The top of the range Giulia Quadrifoglio, with its 510hp six-cylinder 2.9-litre turbo petrol engine delivers truly exhilarating performance levels – a top speed of 307 km/h, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and peak torque of 600 Nm, and continues the long QV tradition that began as a simple request for good luck and ended up becoming a symbol for something even more magical: track records and race victories from Alfa Romeo and the drivers who campaigned them.
