New Giulia-based coupe is expected to be available with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, as well as the Giulia Quadrifoglio's 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6.

A second rendering of the Alfa Romeo GTV has been leaked well ahead of its expected debut, revealing what is effectively a coupe variant of the Giulia sedan.

If this photo is authentic and accurate, the new GTV will have a completely unique body draped over the Giorgio rear- and all-wheel drive platform shared with the Giulia and Stelvio.

The leaked image, which seems to have been taken in a presentation, was published by Club Alfa, and marries up quite nicely with the preview (below) shown by Alfa Romeo when Fiat Chrysler (FCA) outlined its latest five-year plan in 2018.

According to the Italian publication, the range-topping model will have a torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system, and a plug-in hybrid system paired with the Quadrifoglio's 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 to make a total of around 450kW of power and provide an electric-only driving range of about 50 kilometres.

The regular Quarifoglio engine, currently rated at 375kW of power and 600Nm of torque, is also expected to be offered.

As the GTV wasn't included in FCA's latest production road map for its Italian factories, the new coupe won't go into production until 2022, meaning the earliest launch of the vehicle will be in 2021.
