Los Angeles 2015: Alfa Romeo presents 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio

Built using the "Mechanics of Emotion" the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is playing with our emotions as it burns up the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, the Quadrifoglio puts out a whopping 505-hp and 443 lb.-ft. of torque, by far the most in its class and encroaching on supercar territory. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, it can blast from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0-96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 306 km/h.

After months of teasing but not a whole lot of hard intel, Alfa Romeo introduced its 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio performance sedan to America this week with the elan you'd expect from an Italian automaker.

Volkswagen will be looking to increase the popularity of the modern Beetle with the new Beetle Dune, which combines the beloved vehicle with a six-speed automatic transmissions and the latest in auto connectivity technology. The model will also feature a carbon fiber hood, roof, drive shaft, active aero front splitter, and rear spoiler.

The interior carries on the same built-around-the-driver feel common to many cars in Alfa Romeo's line-up.

For handling, the Giulia relies on double wishbone front suspension and a staggered wheel and tire arrangement with 245/35ZR19 on 19 x 8.5-inch forged alloy wheels up front and 285/30ZR19 Pirelli P Zero Corsa three-season high-performance tires on 19 x 10-inch wheels bringing up the rear. Rear-wheel drive will be standard on all models but an advanced all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring will be available.

Inside, there's plenty of leather, Alcantara, aluminum, and carbon-fiber.

Brian Leon Patience is a powerful virtue, and it seems that Alfa Romeo has been testing ours. But if the performance numbers and hype are to be believed, then we can quote the brand and say that "love is worth the wait".

Brian Leon The worst thing about this Italian beauty is how long we have to wait to get our hands on it.
