Alfa Romeo 350BHP Giulia Veloce
New rumours are spreading of Alfa Romeo producing a 350bhp Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce in the 2019 model year, after being listed in several publications.
There has long been a gap in the market for Alfa Romeo to launch another version of their Giulia line-up. Currently they offer a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder engine which produces 280 horsepower. They also offer a incredibly powerful 2.9-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder Giulia Quadrifoglio that produces a whopping 505bhp. That is a large gap between those two offerings.
Rumours of a model to slot into that gap have been spread for a while now, starting back in December when an entry was discovered on the Fiat Schuyler’s parts site for a 2.0-liter turbo Giulia that produces 345bhp. A similar listing is now also showing on the FCA OEM service website, although no official confirmation has yet been made.
Alfa Romeo have commented previously stating that there were “no plans for any other engines for Giulia in North America for 2018 model years besides the 2.0-litre and 2.9-litre versions”. However, as many others have noted, this leaves the strong possibility of this model being made available in the 2019 model year.
Whilst it is looking likely that a 345bhp version will release in the USA, it is less clear as to whether or not the model would be available in the UK.
