Alfa Romeo has presented a special Giulia Quadrifoglio at the Mille Miglia as a way to celebrate its long-standing connection to the famous event.
This one-off Giulia is finished in a shade dubbed Ochre – basically a shimmering gloss gold which makes the sports sedan really pop. Alfa Romeo says the distinctive color has been designed to look similar to a shade of orange/yellow they offered for some of their models in the 1960s and 70s.
No matter how much Alfa Romeo enthusiasts may love (or hate) the color, there are no plans to bring it into production as it was exclusively made as an ode to the Mille Miglia.
Until the successor to the 8C Competizione, the Giulia Quadrifoglio will likely remain the most desirable car in the automaker’s range. Sure, it may be a few years old at this point but the Italian stallion is exceptionally quick thanks to its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 with 503 hp and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Alfa Romeo sells the car in both six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic guises but right-hand drive markets don’t have the option of that stick shift.
Nonetheless, the combination of a screaming V6 engine and rear-wheel drive makes the Giulia Quadrifoglio one hell of a performance car. What’s more, it absolutely looks the part and in this shade of gold, arguably makes C63s and M3s look rather docile.
