One hundred units of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde, kitted out from the options list and featuring some unique visual details, are being supplied on an exclusive basis for the Maserati network and will soon be seen on the roads throughout Europe. It follows on from a similar arrangement that has seen Ferrari using special edition Abarth 500s as courtesy cars amongst its European dealers.

The cars are equipped with the 235 HP 1750 Turbo Petrol engine that is dedicated to the Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde model that historically represents the brand's top performance vehicles, a concentrate of technology that ensures a perfect combination of sportiness and eco-friendliness. Credit for that goes to its direct injection, dual continuous variable valve timing, turbocharger and scavenging system to eliminate turbolag. This is an engine which achieves record values in its category - in terms of both power and specific torque - but with low fuel consumption in daily use.

The outfitting that Maserati has selected for the Giuliettas to give to its customers includes a few unique touches: heated seats upholstered in full grain Venere leather in the new shade "Maserati Brown" with electric adjustment, an exclusive "Alfa Romeo for Maserati" plate embellishing the dashboard and the special aluminium kick plate with the names "Giulietta" and "Maserati" engraved to seal the union.

The one hundred cars will feature the usual equipment associated with the range-topping QV: bi-xenon headlamps with AFS function, navigation system with pop-up display, Europe maps and TMC Pro, Blue&Me hands-free system with controls on the steering wheel, AUX-IN port, USB port and Bluetooth, and dual zone automatic climate control.

The "Giulietta for Maserati" is also distinguished by options list details on the exterior: 18-inch alloy wheels are enhanced by diamond-tooling, the braking system is oversized, the brake calipers are red, the dashboard inserts are in burnished brushed aluminium and the sporty suspension layout guarantees a best in class dynamic behaviour of the car without jeopardising comfort on board, the Giulietta's strong point.

Like on all of the Giuliettas, this QV version as well offers the standard the dynamic driving selector, Alfa Romeo DNA, so that the car's personality can adapt to the driver's needs and the different road conditions, interacting with all of the car's systems. When Dynamic is selected the car's behaviour is sportier. The engine responds quicker, torque delivery is more substantial owing to the overboost, the Alfa Q2 differential tackles bends in total safety, and the pre-fill maximizes promptness during braking. Ultimate comfort together with low fuel consumption and emissions are guaranteed in Natural, ideal for "everyday" driving. In All Weather, the car's traction is improved even in the harshest weather conditions.
