Styling of upcoming hybrid two-door seemingly revealed well ahead of official unveiling

A leaked image may have given us our best look yet at Alfa Romeo’s forthcoming GTV coupé, which isn’t due to be unveiled until 2021.

The single image, purportedly taken during an official Alfa Romeo presentation, partially shows a render of the upcoming hybrid coupé and was first picked up by Italian motoring site ClubAlfa.

It closely matches the concept sketch Alfa released last year during the FCA Capital Markets day, where the marque confirmed a bold new five-year strategy that will see several new and returning models introduced, including two new SUVs that will bookend the existing Stelvio.

The GTV - essentially a coupé version of the well-received Giulia saloon - is on track to use hybrid power, and is set to be offered in Quadrifoglio guise. In this most performance-focused variant, it will combine the 2.9-litre V6 seen in the Giulia Quadrifoglio with an electric motor for a total power output of more than 600bhp. It will have a 50/50 weight distribution, torque vectoring all-wheel drive and room for four passengers.

Our Verdict

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

Alfa Romeo returns to the super-saloon class, but does the Giulia Quadrifoglio have enough about it to dislodge the Mercedes-AMG C63 and BMW M3 off their perches?

The new model is expected to be revealed in 2021 and go on sale the following year, marking a return for a badge that was last seen on sale in the UK in 2005.

It will arrive at a busy time for Alfa Romeo, which is also planning to introduce long-wheelbase versions of the Giulia and Stelvio, the Tonale compact SUV, a further SUV even larger than the Stelvio, and a reimagined 8C supercar over the next few years.

600bhp hybrid.  Torque Vectoring All Wheel Drive.  An enormous yawn.

 

400bhp.  Rear Wheel Drive.  Alfa Romeo.  Yes please.

No, no I don’t have to agree, but, I do, it seems it’s all about how much horse power you can get out of an Engine in whatever configuration or EV propulsion you can fit into Supercar/ hyper car, you don’t need this much horsepower to go fast, you don’t need 0-60’s in under 3 seconds, you can’t do these speeds on the main roads or M- ways because someone will take your license away or even put you in Jail , how about we educate drivers to be better drivers?, I don’t know if all super car makers offer tuition to do this, this Alfa looks nice, but with 600bhp..?

2022 can't come soon enough for Alfa.  Mito all but finished, Giulietta should last till end of 2019 which will leave the faltering Giulia and Stelvio until theToenail appears sometime late 2020 (into the hardest segment)

Compact SUV isn’t the hardest segment. Customers will literally buy anything - even Vauxhall/Opel makes money with the risible Mokka.

A compact Alfa SUV should clean up.

One of the hardest segments then, but, if you think the next compact Alfa will pitched against a Mokka you're very much mistaken.

Don't see the point, by 2022 everything will have speed limiters fitted by law.

Have you read about how speed limiters will work? 

The driver will always be able to over-ride them. But for people who prefer not to break the law, they could be helpful, and are also intended to remind people that speed limits are intended to be taken seriously. 

I can’t see any more of a problem with speed limiters than with speed limits. People ignore them too.

 

but it’s not limiters that make 600bhp irrelevant. It’s roads and traffic and the fragility of life.
