Power and style: Alfa Romeo to enthral at the Festival of Speed 2019
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the world’s biggest celebration of motor-sports and motoring culture, and would not be complete without the Alfa Romeo and Jeep® brands with the peak of their ranges in terms of not just pure performance but also innovation and off-road capability. A full overview, in the unique, exclusive context of the grounds of Goodwood House and during the Run Up the Hill, where Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the most powerful Jeep SUV of all time, and the “Alfa Romeo Racing” special series Giulia Quadrifoglio, the most powerful street-legal Alfa Romeo ever built, will be able to unleash all their power.
Quadrifoglio: an iconic emblem that means performance
The programme involving the two premium brands with a shared constant striving for excellence is a very rich one, with a large number of the most representative models present. In terms of speed, the best of motor-sport is represented by the F1 showcar, the single-seater used by the “Alfa Romeo Racing” team. Antonio Giovinazzi, the Italian driver and recent winner of the Trofeo Bandini, will also be attending, and will provide driving displays at the wheel of the C32.
The “Alfa Romeo Racing” special series models on parade at the Festival of Speed
The Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio “Alfa Romeo Racing” special series are a tribute to Alfa Romeo’s involvement in motor-sport competition at its very highest level. In this limited edition, Giulia and Stelvio enjoy a boost in power even compared to the 510 HP of the already amazing Quadrifoglio 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo versions, as well as special paintwork referencing that of the F1 cars driven by Giovinazzi and Kimi Räikkönen, combined with exclusive technical and styling features such as the lavish use of carbon and the exclusive Akrapovič titanium exhaust. Also awe-inspiring is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, on display on the move in the Competizione Red livery.
Tonale: the Alfa Romeo vision of the compact hybrid plug-in SUV
Alfa Romeo is synonymous with performance, now also expressed in futuristic vein, responding to the very latest technological challenges, by Alfa Romeo Tonale. The new concept car recently received the coveted “Car Design Award 2019”: its distinctively Italian design is the perfect blend of the brand’s priceless heritage and anticipation of new precepts. As in every Alfa Romeo, every detail is designed around the driver and driving pleasure: in Tonale, the brand’s signature unrivalled handling also becomes electric.
