Bella! Carabinieri krijgt 510 pk sterke Alfa Romeo's

Onze jongens in het blauw rijden in een Touran. In Italië heb je als elitediender iets leukers tot je beschikking. De Italokit - al in bezit van Lamborghini's - nam gisteren de eerste twee Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio's (510 pk) in ontvangst.

Het is altijd een mooi PR-momentje in Italië: zodra de eigen auto-industrie iets spectaculairs maakt, dan doneert het een of meerdere modellen aan de politie. Dat ziet er niet alleen badass uit, het genereert ook nog eens goede pers. Natuurlijk rijdt nagenoeg iedere diender in een modale auto, maar deze halo-modellen springen er lekker uit.

Lamborghini schonk in 2014 een Huracán aan de Polizia, die het 610 pk sterke ding o.a. voor kritieke orgaantransporten (waar de klok tikt) gebruikt, en gisteren was het de beurt aan Alfa, dat met de nieuwe Giulia na 134 jaar eindelijk een opvolger van de 156/159 heeft. 

Als eerste klapt het merk zijn topmodel er in, de 510 pk sterke Quadrifoglio met een 2.9 V6 twin-turbo (met liefde van Ferrari) onder de kap, later dit jaar volgen modale benzine- en dieselmodellen. In een uitgebreide ceremonie en onder toeziend oog van Fiat-bobo's Sergio Marchionne en Agnelli-kleinzoon John Elkann werden twee Giulia Quadrifoglio-exemplaren aan de Carabinieri gedoneerd. In de jaren '60 beschikte de Carabinieri al over een Giulia, en afgelopen decennium had het Alfa 159's in zijn vloot.

Natuurlijk mag niet elke Jandoedel in zo'n dikke Giulia rijden, er zijn er ook maar twee van. Deze worden ingezet in Milaan en Rome, en slechts een handjevol speciaal getrainde Carabinieri mag plaatsnemen in de Ringbom. Als je dat bereikt hebt als agent kan je eigenlijk alleen nog maar naar Dubai overstappen voor een auto-promotie. In het Emiraat heeft de politie een compleet arsenaal aan supercars in de vloot.
