A fascinating, good article from the Giulia's chief engineer's mouth. This car's driving-centric engineering is rare these days, and will be central to the new Alfa Romeo model range's (6-8 cars/sporty cuv-s by 2018) branding, its brand-identity-story-promise.

The tagline for the new Alfa-s will be 'the Mechanics of Emotion' in Italian, which makes it recognizable in any modern language as anything-but-Herr German. ;-)

It looks a little bit too mainstream for an Alfa. I was expecting Alfa to go a little more mainstream when they introduced the Mito. The 4C is a pleasant surprise though. Anyway, it still is a lot more interesting than the Germans.

I thought so too, but looking again at the first of the two cabin pics, it's apparent the person has his index-finger on the start/stop button (probably turning on accessory mode or something).

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio unveiled at LA Auto show with an expected price tag upwards of $70,000
Press Release:
Quote:
- Built in Italy, the Giulia Quadrifoglio Delivers Class-leading 505 Horsepower, 0-60 in 3.8 Seconds and a Record-setting 7:39 Nürburgring Lap Time – the Fastest Ever by a Four-door Production Sedan
- Alfa Romeo – the heart and soul of the automotive industry – is returning to the U.S. with an all-new lineup of vehicles, starting with the award-winning 4C Coupe and 4C Spider, inspired by the timeless 33 Stradale, and now the all-new Giulia premium mid-size sedan
- All-new Giulia Quadrifoglio is the first of a new lineup of vehicles built off an all-new world-class rear-wheel-drive platform that embodies La meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion)
- Built in Italy, the all-new Giulia grouped together the best resources and talent within a highly focused team to deliver the highest levels of innovation and precision craftsmanship
- With muscular proportions, simplistic elegance and high-quality surface finishes across its generous wheelbase, the 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio exudes stunning Italian style with a finesse of Alfa Romeo heritage, athletically taut lines, sculptural details and best-in-class aerodynamics
- Ferrari-derived 505-horsepower bi-turbo V-6 makes the Giulia Quadrifoglio the most powerful Alfa Romeo production car ever, delivering 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph, while cylinder deactivation reduces real-world fuel consumption by up to 15 percent
- Best-in-class power-to-weight ratio of around 7 pounds per horsepower, near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, segment-leading torsional rigidity and the most direct steering available, thanks to an all-new rear-wheel-drive architecture with extensive use of lightweight materials
- Next-level, state-of-the-art technologies, including Alfa DNA Pro selector, torque vectoring, active aero front splitter and Chassis Domain Control (CDC), maximize the all-new Alfa Romeo - Giulia Quadrifoglio's driving exhilaration
- Crafted by Alfa Romeo artisans at the Cassino plant in Frosinone, Italy
- Giulia nameplate reflects a 55-year heritage of Alfa Romeo's lightweight, performance sedan tradition and 105 years of the brand, carving its legend on road courses around the globe
- All-new 2017 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio begins production for North America late in the second-quarter of 2016 with a starting U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of around $70,000

The entire engine line up leaked ahead of official unveiling!
The Guilia will have three engine types with varying output. The 2.0-liter four-banger will get 200 hp, 250 hp, and 280 horsepower depending on the spec. The 2.2-liter four-cylinder will start at 150 horses, move up to 180 horsepower, and cap off at 210 ponies. The most exciting engine is said to be "inspired by Ferrari" and will be a 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 with rear wheel drive, an optional double clutch transmission or manual, and either 490 to 500 horsepower. All models will be rear-wheel drive except the 250 horsepower and 280 horsepower 2.0 liters as well as the 2.2-liter 210 horsepower version (which get AWD).

Another perspective of how the New Giulia was born, I am sure you being the most informed enthusiast, would have watched it already. If not, please go through the below-enclosed youtube link and suggest your views.

An open claim on how Giulia QV was made ready in 2 years, I am sure it s not a contraption but well sorted at best.

Sir: The video is in Italian, so I am guessing a majority of us won't understand it.
Translation please?
