The new Alfa Romeo Giulia in white-blue livery strengthens the collaboration between Alfa Romeo and the State Police. The Biscione sedan, allocated to the General Prevention and Public Rescue Offices (UPGSP), is designed to provide steering wheel service and ensure territorial control in all Italian provinces. By the end of the year, 450 vehicles will be added to the car parks of Italian police stations, joining the family of the "panthers" that have written the history of the State Police and our country.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia is equipped with a 2.0 turbo 200 HP engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive: a technological treasure in ideal Alfa Romeo sporting flair to ensure even greater safety requirements in cities.
For almost seventy years, the State Police have used Alfa Romeo automobiles and engines to safeguard the safety of citizens. The first police car was a 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900, which provided power and dependability thanks to its 100 horsepower. From 1955, the duty was moved to the quick Giulietta TI, culminating in the Alfa Romeo Giulia with the 1600 cubic centimeter engine with 92 horsepower.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia became an Italian classic in the recognizable gray-green livery, appearing in several detective films of the time. Even in the 1960s, Alfa Romeo Panthers were joined by coupé vehicles like the 2600 Sprint with Bertone bodywork or vans like the Alfa Romeo II. Finally, other Alfa Romeo cars entered the country's common imagination.
"The supply of Giulia is part of Alfa Romeo's heritage of providing sports cars to the police. The fastest and safest automobiles on the track and on the road have proven to be ideal for serving the state and its residents since the 1950s. Throughout history, all of our most notable Alfa Romeo models have been enrolled, and this is a responsibility and source of tremendous pride for every Alfista."
