After numerous delays, the first 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia has finally been produced.
The first examples of the Alfa Romeo Giulia rolled off the production line at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ plant in Piedimonte San Germano, Italy, earlier this week. It appears that the very first example of the Giulia features a dark grey paint and is likely heading to Europe. Production for the U.S.-bound Giulia models isn’t expected to begin until late in the second quarter with the high-performance Quadrifoglio models being first in line.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio first made its debut at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show sporting 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque with an estimated zero-to-60-mph time of 3.8 seconds. It has also lapped the Nurburgring in 7:39 and has a top speed of 191 mph.
Later on, the U.S. will receive the other Alfa Romeo Giulia models and it is believed that the entry-level offering will feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine producing 200 hp mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
If all goes as planned, the U.S. should see the Alfa Romeo Giulia hitting dealerships before year’s end.
