Carabinieri choose Alfa Romeo Giulia Tipo 952

Italy’s Carabinieri police force has renewed its devotion to Alfa Romeo by ordering 1770 new Giulias. The Giulia ‘Radiomobile’ is based on the 2.0-litre 200hp automatic model. Special features include traditional blue livery, armoured front doors, armoured glass all round, explosion-proof fuel tank, flashing lights (including on the door mirrors), special message panel, single-person cell in the rear, police radio and external amplifier.


The first Alfa Romeo used for police duties was the 1900 M ‘Matta’ of 1951, followed a year later by the 1900 saloon, while the Giulia 105 was used from 1963 to 1968. The last Alfa Romeo to be widely used was the 159, while the Giulia Quadrifoglio has been assessed as a fast pursuit vehicle.
