This Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio Will Sell For Cheap, But There’s A Catch

We knew the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quarifoglio was fast. But we didn’t imagine how little time it would take between its arrival in North America and the sight of the first one totaled. Yet that’s what we have here.

Up for auction on Copart – a site that specializes in selling off the remains of written-off vehicles – is a red Giulia in Raleigh, North Carolia, that was apparently completely totaled in a crash.

The photos (as our colleagues at Jalopnik point out) paint quite a grizzly picture, and the listing gives us little to go on but a few very scary details: the primary cause of the damage is listed as a “rollover,” with secondary damage listed as “biohazard/chemical.” Yikes.

We hope the occupants escaped the incident without serious injury. As for the car (or the remains thereof), that’ll go to the highest bidder when the listing ends less than two days from now. Bidding at the time of writing stands at $1,250 – which is a fair bit lower than the $78,870 sticker price, but then we’re not sure how what, if anything, there might be to salvage from this wrecked Italian performance sedan.

    Just a little buffing here and there it looks fine.

  • pcurve

    too new, and too low volume for parts to be worth anything.

    • Pete Moss

      I would think your description makes them more valuable. Too new to be readily available and too few makes them scarce, Therefore high prices.

      • pcurve

        That might be the case if Alfa were to go bankrupt tomorrow and can’t produce parts. But because it’s too new, I don’t think owners will accept anything less new part for repairs.

    Some colors just don’t sell well

    Rolled it into a lake?

      This. Other than some plastic intake ducting, and the intercooler/radiator assembly out front, engine is sure to be bought by someone with a non-Quadrifoglio…someday.

    The engine, tranny, and salvageable electriccontrollers are worth the opening bid.

    It’s “North Carolina”…not “North Carolia”

    buying a new one may come cheaper

    Biohazard likely means blood or other bodily fluids..

  • Mofo

    Well THERE’S your problem!!

    Actually, it looks like it endo’d somehow…

  • Paul

    I wonder if the driver messed themselves when this happened. Or was it the valet at the parking garage?

  • sidewaysspin

    Who wants that thing except to con other people? Law should require these cars to be destroyed not allow them to be resold.
