The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a four-door that is arguably brimming with style. However, the Italian sedan isn’t just about looks; its Quadrifoglio version comes with horsepower figures to back up that sporty style – and that Autobahn high-speed run, courtesy of AutoTopNLis the proof.
The Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio is a true sports sedan. With a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine developing 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts), it can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 3.9 seconds. This mill produces 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-meters) of torque, sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
But perhaps the main point to talk about in relation to the video is the top speed. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has a top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h), making it a joy to drive on the road. However, the driver in the video above did not reach said speed on unrestricted sections of the highway. It only reached 173 mph (278 km/h), which was a bit short but still an impressive feat.
Aside from the paint scheme (or decals?) and Akrapovic exhaust, the Giulia QV in the video above looked stock. It sounded fierce too, especially on start-up, but the sound isolation managed to suppress the high-octane symphony at high speeds.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio proves it has the speed and power to rival other luxury sports cars on the market. It compares to other high-performance luxury sports sedans such as the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63S. In fact, our Turkish colleagues pitted the Giulia QV against the AMG C63S (albeit in coupe form) in 2018 to see which was quickest in a straight-line contest.
The future of the Alfa Romeo Giulia is uncertain as the automaker has not announced any specific plans for the next generation of the vehicle. However, turning it into a hybrid vehicle might be off the table as Alfa Romeo product manager Daniel Guzzafame has publicly stated that next-generation models arriving later this decade will “most likely” have a pure powertrain. electric. .
