The original Alfa Romeo Giulia was a boxy little car that was on the market from 1962 to 1978. It took 37 years, and a lot of rumors, but in 2015 Alfa Romeo revived the Giulia name and used it for the first model in its strategic plan to save the Alfa Romeo brand. And the Giulia is a pretty big deal, as it’s not only the revival of an iconic car, but is also the first rear-wheel drive model from the Italian brand since the Milano met its demise back in 1992. As a competitor to the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class, a standard model just wasn’t enough, so Alfa created the high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio to compete with the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63, among others. Now, Alfa Romeo has brought the Giulia Quadrifoglio to its online configurator so you can make your own custom sedan to drool over until you’re ready to pony up the dough it takes to park one in your driveway.

But, before we get too far into things, don’t expect to see an elaborate amount of options. In fact, there aren’t that many options to choose from at all. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the Giulia Quadrifoglio already comes equipped pretty damn well in standard form, but if you’re like me, you want the absolute best you can get out of a new car. And, that’s exactly how I configured my Giulia Quadrifoglio.

I was initially shooting for a price that topped $100,000, but the options just aren’t there. I did, however, manage to get a sticker price of $87,670 after everything’s said and done, so let’s take a look at a good look at the options I chose.

The exterior is available in seven different colors, but I chose to go with Trofeo White Tri-Coat, which added $2,200 to my sticker price. As you can see, that white paint looks great when contrasted by the various gloss black accents, but to really round out the exterior package, I went with the 19-inch Dark five-Hole wheels that add on an extra $500 and further enhances the exterior appeal. Finally, with some big, wide-open wheels, you’ve got to opt for the carbon ceramic high-performance Brembo brakes painted in gloss black with white lettering. Nice!

Interior

Instead of going with the standard leather and Alcantara seats, I decided to go with the carbon fiber Sparco racing seats. You lose the heating function, but you gain more support, which is ideal for someone like me who loves a good day of spirited driving. Finished in black with red stitching, the seats alone set me back another $2,750. The car comes standard with an 8.8-inch infotainment system with no option or the usual upgrades, but for an extra $900 I opted for the Harmon Kardon audio system with 14 speakers, including a subwoofer, and a 900-Watt amplifier. And to match the carbon fiber seats, I had to opt for the $400 carbon fiber steering wheel.

I have to admit that I’m not one for all of this semi-autonomous crap that is being forced into cars, but I chose to go with the Driver Assistance Dynamic Package anyway. This adds adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam control, forward collision warning with autonomous braking, lane departure warning, and an infrared windshield. For an extra $1,500, it’s not a bad package to have.

Drivetrain

Unfortunately, there are no drivetrain options or upgrades to choose from at this time, but that 2.9-liter comes ready to give anyone its two cents with all of its 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. With a 60-mph sprint taking just 3.8 seconds, you can imagine that its top speed of 191 mph comes pretty quickly as well – all the more reason that I needed those Sparco racing seats!

What It Boils Down To

As you can see from the pricing breakdown above, the Giulia Quadrifoglio starts out at $72,000, but after my $14,075 worth of options, and the $1,595 destination charge, I’ll have to pony up $87,670 with nearly $9,000 down. That translates to a monthly payment of $1,236 if I loan or $1,117 if I decide to lease it for 48 months. Either way, it’ll be a fun ride, but as someone who likes to upgrade, financing is probably the best option for me. With that said, I’ve uploaded a full version of the summary showcase all of the finer details. Now, it’s your turn. Take a look at the configurator, customize your own, and let us know what would make up your perfect Giulia Quadrifoglio.
