The Italian automaker has donated 1,400 copies of the powerful Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan to a special unit of the Italian Armed Forces. The car received bulletproof windows and doors.
The Carabinieri is the Italian Armed Forces unit responsible for protecting the country and this unit has a long historical relationship with Alfa Romeo. The final step in this direction was Alfa’s delivery of the first specially equipped Giulia for the Nuclei Radiomobili Carabinieri patrol units. Ultimately, the Italian armed forces will have 1,770 of these machines.
Under the hood of each atvo is a 197 horsepower 2.0-liter engine that will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
This allows the sedan to accelerate to 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds, while its top speed is 230 km / h.
A special version of the powerful Italian car boasts B4 armor for windows and entrance doors. This is enough to protect against pistol cartridges up to a .44 magnum caliber. There are emergency lights on the roof and each has a separate fairing, giving them an aerodynamic and stylish look. There are also flashers on the sides and LED flashers on the mirrors.
An interesting point from the inside is that there can only be one arrested person in a detention cell. The advantage is that three officers could ride this Julia.
The delivery of the new Alfa Romeo Giulia takes place exactly 70 years after the first Alfa model was put into operation: it was a 1900 Matta. This was soon followed by the 1900 sedan and, as a consequence, the birth of the Carabinieri emergency response vehicle.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the iconic Alfa Romeo 4C was turned into a piece sports car Abarth 1000 SP.
