The Italian police have bought some Alfa Romeo Giulias



The Carabinieri who are an arm of the Italian police that deal with the more violent and more organized crimes have so far been using the Lotus Evora

With the arrival of Alfa’s new saloon, the 503bhp Giulia QV, they have recognised just how much more the Giulia is in comparison to its rivals and the fact that its home grown as well is a bonus.



The QV’s twin-turbo V6 engine yields a 3.9-second 0-62mph time and a claimed 191mph top speed, and if that wasn’t enough then there are the on board cameras and other technologies such as tablets and the Carabinieri own devices that we probably don’t want to know about. Theres even plenty of space in the back for several people unlike the Lotus.

The first two Giulia QVs have been delivered to the Carabinieri, too, with Fiat Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne present to do the honours. The Giulia is part of a large deal to supply cars to the Italian police, with more Alfas as well as Jeeps and Fiats among them.
