The Italian Carabinieri know how to do a police car right. Look no further than this Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, which was presented to the Carabinieri by Fiat Chrysler‘s Sergio Marchionne and John Elkann.
Instead of chasing down speeders, Alfa Romeo’s new Giulia Quadrifoglio will transport organs and blood for emergency medical use, as well as serve ceremonial escort cars. The police version adds radios and lights, a portable defibrillator, LED flashlights in the doors, and round signaling flags that the Italian Carabinieri enjoy to use.
The Quadrifolgio tops the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia lineup with a 505 hp twin-turbo V6 capable of 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a claimed 191mph top speed. When it eventually goes on sale in the US later this year or early next year, prices will range from around $40,000 for the base model to $70,000 in Quadrifoglio trim.
The force will only get two Giulia QVs, but Fiat Chrysler will provide the Carabinieri with 800 cars this year including Giuliettas, Jeep Renegades, and Fiat Panda 4x4s.
