Alfa Romeo is focusing on a brand new F1-inspired powertrain for that approaching Giulia coupe, based on reports from the United kingdom.
If a study printed in Autocar will be believed, you will see two new hybrid setups arriving the 2-door Giulia: one in line with the 2.-litre, four-cylinder Veloce engine, and something in line with the fire-breathing 2.9-litre Quadrofoglio V6.
The report suggests the machine depends on the HY-KERS setup produced by Ferrari and Magneti Marelli, made to provide torque fill as the turbo spools up from low revs. Although it’s targeted at delivering better performance, along side it-advantages of electrification will probably include lower emissions and fuel efficiency around.
In lesser Veloce trim, the power-recovery system (ERS) is anticipated to include an additional 50kW towards the mix, bumping total capacity to around 255kW. When put on the V6 within the Quadrifoglio, the machine could generate a massive 100kW boost.
That will result in the cloverleaf coupe a 475kW proposition, just 18kW lacking the Ferrari 488 GTB and well past the 368kW provided by the present BMW M4 CS.
When it comes to Giulia Sprint (or GTV) coupe itself, there’s talk from the vehicle appearing later this season in front of a 2019 on-purchase date. It’s likely to carry significant changes within the four-door, with longer doorways, a far more rakish rear along with a more aggressive nose treatment all up for grabs.
