Alfa Romeo and the Italian armed forces of the Carabinieri have a 70-year-old love affair! And it is not about to stop since the Italian brand has just delivered a new car to them.
The Carabinieri, an Italian military police division with which it is best not to rub shoulders, receives a new member in its ranks: the latest model of Alfa Romeo Giulia. Its delivery is scheduled for exactly 70 years after the brand’s first car arrived in the police force. To the day ! A love story that has seen many vehicles, but there is something special about this vehicle.
No, this is not a Quadrifoglio version with more than 500 hp. Although, the police still have two in its ranks: one for the forces of Rome, the other in Milan. Here, it is a more classic model equipped with 2.0 petrol 200 hp. Its performance is more than respectable with a top speed of 230 km / h and a 0 to 100 shot in 6.6 s. Finally, the accelerations of this copy are perhaps a little less given the protection that has been added to it..
Indeed, this car has seen its windows and doors reinforced to resist bullets! To be more precise, she has a level B4 armor. This armor allows it to resist the assault of a caliber up to 44 Magnum! On the other hand, in the event of a rocket attack, it will be necessary to call the army tanks.
Unusual: when Cristiano Ronaldo visits the Ferrari factory, he leaves with a Monza SP2!
Used: 5 Alfa Romeo Giulia less than 23,000 €
