The high-performance Quadrifoglio version of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is arriving in dealerships this month for a starting price of $72,000.

Two other models — the entry-level Giulia and mid-level Giulia Ti — will begin arriving in dealerships in January with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $37,995 and $39,995, respectively.

Pricing excludes a $1,595 destination charge for the Quadrifoglio model, and $995 destination charge for the other two models.

Giulia Quadrifoglio is the most powerful Alfa Romeo production car with a 2.9-liter bi-turbo V-6 engine producing 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. It has a class-leading 0-60 miles per hour acceleration in 3.8 seconds.

The Giulia and Giulia Ti models feature an all-new aluminum, 2.0-liter direct-injection turbo engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission delivering a class-leading, standard 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque.

Both Giulia and Giulia Ti models have available upgrade packages and a $2,000 optional Q4 all-wheel-drive system.

The Giulia, according to global head of Alfa Romeo Reid Bigland, “sets an entirely new benchmark for the segment as the world’s fastest four-door production sedan.”

All three Giulia models offer “near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, segment-leading torsional rigidity and the most direct steering ratio on the market,” according to the company.

The Giulia was first unveiled in June 2015. It is the first all-new vehicle in a 5 billion Euro plan to turn Alfa Romeo into a global luxury brand, including reintroducing the brand to the United States after a 20-year hiatus.
