The legend continues: the Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV now in Oman!
Posted on: 15 July 2015

Alfa Romeo cars have always been dedicated to those demanding true driving excitement and passion, and look beyond the utilitarian concept of a car as a ‘useful means of transport’. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is now available as the latest generation Quadrifoglio Verde (QV, also known as “Cloverleaf”) version that is now available at the Dhofar Automotive, dealers of the Alfa Romeo range in Oman.

A true expression of Alfa Romeo’s racing DNA and a perfect combination of essential style, compact and powerful powertrain, right power-to-weight ratio and pure Alfa Romeo technological features devoted to driving pleasure, it is differentiated from other Giulietta’s by a decisive look and a strong personality.

The QV features the exclusive powertrain inherited from the Alfa Romeo 4C supercar - the new turbocharged 240 hp, 1750cc direct injection aluminium-block engine - combined with a next generation Alfa 6-speed twin dry clutch TCT.  

Biju Luckose, Marketing Manager of Dhofar Automotive said, “This exciting new high performance QV model is in perfect sync with the stunning Alfa Romeo 4C, the brand’s modern icon which personifies the essential sportiness embedded in Alfa Romeo’s DNA: performance and technical excellence for maximum driving pleasure combined with breathtaking style.”

“At the same time, the new Giulietta QV is also a tribute to the legendary history of the Quadrifoglio Verde - since 1923 this symbol has been associated with Alfa Romeo’s top performing cars. The QV emblem has appeared on many cars that have graced the world’s race circuits as well as numerous special production models”, he elaborated.

The first Alfa Romeo car to bear the QV emblem was the ‘RL’ driven by UgoSivocci that won the 14th edition of the Targa Florio in 1923. Since then, all racing Alfas have carried the emblem for good luck, ensuring its worldwide recognition. Starting in the 1960s, the symbol also began to appear on performance versions of road-going Alfa Romeos.

The QV versions of Giulietta have assumed a place in the tradition of the best Alfa Romeos, drawing on the brand’s heritage of dynamic performance without compromising on efficiency, respect for the environment and convenience in everyday use.

The Alfa Romeo is available on special prices that are valid till August 17, 2015, under Dhofar Automotive’s promotion that covers all brands of the company including Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Fiat.
