Alfa Romeo is showcasing the long-awaited Giulia at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The only version of the new sedan that’s been unveiled so far is the range-topping Quadrifoglio Verde that’s aimed squarely at the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-AMG C63. Tuned with input from Ferrari, its 510-horsepower V6 engine gives it a power advantage over its German rivals. Only time will tell if the Giulia can walk the walk, however.
To celebrate the occasion, Alfa is showcasing a 1960s Giulia TI Super next to the new Giulia. Bringing the Super all the way from Milan is also a discreet way of telling the show-going public that, in spite of a long hiatus, Alfa has been building sports sedans for much longer than BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
