アルファロメオ「新型Giulia Quadrifoglio Carabinieri」ポリスカー；公式デザイン画像集
Italy’s Carabinieri gets a pair of Alfa Romeo Giulia police cars
In the country that’s home to both Ferrari and Lamborghini, even the police cars need to be fast. Italy’s Carabinieri has employed everything from SUVs to Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars over the years, but the force’s latest acquisition seems like the perfect choice for an Italian police car.
Two Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio sedans are slated to enter service in Rome and Milan. They’ll be used for “special operations,” including transporting organs and blood, and serving as police escorts at public events. Alfa Romeo parent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will also supply 800 admittedly less sporty Alfa Giulietta and Jeep Renegade police cars to the Carabinieri this year.
Like the civilian version, the Quadrifoglio police car packs a Ferrari-designed 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Police cars even have the six-speed manual transmission that’s standard in the stock version. Alfa says the Quadrifoglio will do 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 191 mph. That’s not quite fast enough to catch most Ferraris, but definitely fast enough to catch everything else.
