Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio review – performance and 0-60 time
Alfa's first performance saloon in over a decade is a winner
Even by today’s ludicrous standards of power, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio’s 503bhp is impressive. But rather than relying solely on the engine’s grunt to produce some outstanding performance figures the Giulia is also impressively light.
To keep weight down it comes with a carbonfibre propshaft, bonnet, roof and front splitter. The subframes are made from aluminum, as is the engine. All these exotic materials result in a claimed dry weight of 1524kg.
As such, Alfa says the Giulia can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 3.9sec and go onto a top speed of 191mph. It also says its supersaloon can lap the Nuburgring in 7:39sec. When we lapped it around Bedford Autodrome, we set a time of 1:23.6sec – the fastest saloon we have ever timed around the circuit.
