We’re still waiting on today’s full reveal of the Alfa Romeo Giulia sport sedan, but we now know that right away, it won’t be screwing around. Apparently the car will launch with a 510 horsepower, twin-turbo performance version designed to fight the BMW M3. Che bella!

Automotive News Europe reports the car will be called the Giulia Quadrifoglio, and it will get all that power from twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 “derived from the unit that Ferrari builds for the Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans.”

Other versions of the Giulia will get 2.0-liter four-cylinder and V6 power. It’s based on an all-new platform that will come in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions.

More on this as it comes in. Get excited, and learn to pronounce things in Italian.
