Recent talk of a 641 hp, hybrid Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe is enough to get anyone excited. After taking a look at these renderings, you may even be convinced to head to a local Alfa dealer and place an order for the car.
Created by All Car News, these renderings depict a hardcore Giulia that is wider, lower, and much more menacing than its four-door sibling.
Up front, the Giulia Coupe can be differentiated from the sedan thanks to new LED headlights slightly larger than the units currently in use. Obviously, the rear doors have also been removed and instead sits a pair of elongated front doors. At the rear, the Italian sports car looks very similar to the sedan but is also slightly wider and looks even more appealing.
According to reports out of the UK, the Giulia Coupe in question will pair the marque’s 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 with an energy recovery system (ERS) to deliver a combined 641 hp. Such a figure is just 20 hp fewer than the Ferrari 488 GTB and would give the Alfa a significant edge over its rivals.
Details about the Formula 1-inspired ERS remain scarce but it is possible it could be a development of the HY-LERS system used by the LaFerrari. Input from the Sauber Formula One team is also conceivable.
