Alfa Romeo Gulia Quadrifoglio!!!
2018 Motor Trend car of the year!!
"If Ferrari made a made a midsize, four door car, you suspect it would feel and go exactly like this"
"Fastest sedan with a trunk -ever- around the Nurburgring "
"Its an M3 with better steering and more suspension compliance, C63 with a razor sharp front axle, a big, sporty pile of animal noises that somehow manages to also be delicate and composed and just flat out blessedly intoxicating "
If your not familiar with this car and the relaunch of Alfa Romeo then let me tell ya...
OMG what an amazing car! 505hp! 0-60 in 3.8 seconds! Just under 12 through the 1/4 mile! 0-160mph in 16 seconds!!! Think about that one, that is stupid fast! 191mph top speed!!! A sedan!!!
Multi link suspension, torque vectoring, active dampers and engine mounts, active aerodynamics, carbon fiber driveshaft, carbon fiber all over the place, its light car! anti lag systems (plural), multiple drive modes I could go on but this can sound like the spec sheet from any super car these days. Let me tell you what its like to drive one...
First thing you'll notice is its as luxurious and comfortable as you would expect from an luxury italian car. Aside from a few design quirks (as can probably be expected from the peninsula) it's a nice enough interior for a high performance sedan. The Carbon Sparco seats help distribute weight to 50/50 and are very comfortable and supportive. Alcantara, leather and carbon fiber dominate the cabin along with all the modern electronics and sensors and who's its and what's its.
Now the fun part! From start up you'll instantly know this isnt an appliance or lux box. Its snarls, its throaty and cammed aggressively for a nice rumbly idle. I find very little turbo lag and once spooled up they tend to stay that way...it pulls...pulls hard!!!!! Power to weight ratio is 911 turbo territory to give you an idea of what to expect of acceleration. The 8 speed ZF8 is tuned wonderfully in every mode and every drive mode feels as advertised. Shift speed is remarkable. I also own a 911 with PDK and can say the ZF8 has no problem keeping up and in some ways may be better. For certain its quicker than my 911 and it doesnt lack in the handling department either. Turn in is as quick as any 911 or mid engine Ferrari I've driven and the amount of grip is insane. Very few cars can keep up with this in a straight line or around a track or back road. There is almost no body roll or chassis flex and it just plain feels nimble and alive!! It can also be a luxury sedan with a lovely ride and wonderful entertainment system. Like most cars of this sort they try and do achieve that duality of being a wolf in sheeps clothing. It can be Audrey Hepburn playing Jacki Kennedy or Sophia Lauren playing a courtesan at the flip of a switch or in this case the turning of a knob.
This car is an absolute joy to drive! Its Stylish, classy and unique. There are very few of these around, take the opportunity to drive this one. You won't regret it.
