2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
A new standard
The Giulia Quadrifoglio sets a new standard for luxury sporting sedans. You expect cars of this ilk to be comfortable and quick, but quick enough to set a new saloon car lap record around Germany’s famed Nurburgring Nordschleife? Yes indeed.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio shot a cannonball across the bows of the German prestige brands in their own backyard with an almighty 7 minute 39 second flying effort around the 20.8 kilometre circuit.
Power comes from an all-aluminium, twin-turbocharged 90-degree V6 petrol engine developed exclusively for Alfa Romeo by Ferrari and is closely related to Ferrari’s own V8 engine. It’s a visceral powerplant, pumping 500 horsepower through to the rear wheels for a totally mind-blowing driving experience.
Best Drivers Car
The Giulia Quadrifoglio is one very intoxicating and very fast Alfa Romeo. So intoxicating and fast, in fact, it was judged Australia’s Best Drivers Car for 2018 by expert road testers from motoring.com.au
