Muscat, March 16, 2021: Dhofar Automotive, the official distributor of Alfa Romeo vehicles in the Sultanate, is presenting stunning Alfa Romeo models at its showrooms. The brand’s range includes the Giulia, Giulietta and Stelvio, which are all available with different equipment classes to best suit the individual needs of every customer. The Alfa Romeo models include the track and record-breaking Quadrifoglio variants that kick off with breathtaking acceleration and sporty performance inspired by the racing tracks on which the legendary Italian brand has achieved remarkable successes.

Commenting on the Alfa Romeo models, Hatem El-Naggar, General Manager at Dhofar Automotive, said, “Alfa Romeo has always embodied an unparalleled level of Italian craftsmanship, class-leading performance, cutting-edge technology and true driving passion, which arises from the brand’s long legacy of sportsmanship. Each of the Alfa Romeo vehicles provides our customers with a unique blend of sophistication and elegance and is available at unbelievable starting prices. In addition to a comprehensive package of additional benefits, purchasing any of the select vehicles will truly enhance the customer’s ownership and driving experience.”

Being the first Alfa Romeo SUV, the Stelvio features an attractive look with strong performance, something that is even more prominent in the Quadrifoglio variant. It has design features that create an even sportier style and cater to the car's specific technical features. Its all-aluminum 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo petrol engine delivers 510 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, achieving a top speed of 283 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. It’s no surprise, therefore, that the Stelvio Quadrifoglio set a new record for its class on the iconic Nürburgring with a time of 7 minutes 51.7 seconds.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia sets new standards for the luxury mid-size sedan class. It has won numerous regional and international awards and has remained a class leader since its initial reveal. As with the Stelvio, the most potent variant of the Giulia is the Quadrifoglio. Fitted with the same 510 horsepower V6 2.9-litre bi-turbo petrol engine and 8-speed automatic transmission, the Giulia Quadrifoglio guarantees thrilling performance, with a top speed of 307 km/h and a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of just 3.9 seconds. As the Italian brand’s halo model, the Giulia Quadrifoglio highlights Alfa Romeo’s performance and motorsport knowhow with its record-setting 7 minutes 32 seconds lap time around the legendary Nürburgring – fastest ever at the time by a four-door production sedan.

The Giulietta is available in two variants, the Giulietta Super and the Giulietta Veloce. The most powerful variant of which is the Veloce equipped with a 1,750cc turbo petrol engine which delivers 240 horsepower. It also features the Alfa TCT, the innovative twin dry clutch semi-automatic transmission from Alfa Romeo, ensuring continuous torque delivery and traction without loss of power while shifting. Everything on the Giulietta Veloce is conceived to deliver an authentic racing experience behind the wheel.

“We at Dhofar Automotive are pleased to invite all Alfa Romeo enthusiasts in the Sultanate to come and see the stunning Alfa Romeo range first-hand at our showrooms. We also encourage them to meet with sales representatives and request a personal driving experience,” he added.
