Atelier McChip-DKR has developed three different “power enhancement packages” for the Italian Giulia sedan in the high-performance version of the Quadrifoglio. The most powerful of them brings the sports sedan Alfa Romeo to the same level with supercars.

By setting up the turbochargers, making upgrades to the software of the electronic engine control unit and updating other components of the power plant, the guys from the McChip-DKR tuning studio were able to unlock additional power.

Thus, the twin-turbo of the 2.9-liter V6 managed to “squeeze” an additional 170 hp and 250 Nm of torque – the engine now produces a maximum of 680 hp (850 Nm).

Paying for a similar upgrade Giulia Quadrifoglio 15,859 dollars, you get a car that is 10 hp (90 Nm) is more powerful than the Italian supercar Ferrari 488 GTB. As a bonus, the tuner removes the speed limiter, allowing the car to reach a maximum speed of 313 km / h.

At a price of 8,111 dollars, you can buy Stage 2 – in this case, the engine power will increase to 610 hp (800 Nm). While buying Stage 1 for the price of 2,243 dollars, you will receive a 580-strong version of the same V-engine, the maximum torque of which is now 750 Nm. This is despite the fact that prices for the Italian Giulia sedan in the high-performance version of the Quadrifoglio start at $ 89,423.
