OFFICIAL: ALFA’S GIULIA QV IS THE NEW ‘RING KING
It’s believable to me that the new Alfa Romeo Giulia QV is faster than modern rivals like the BMW M4, but I’m most surprised that—based on lap time alone—it could have qualified on pole for the 1970 1000kms of Nürburgring. By some four seconds.
Although bagging lap times is very much frowned upon in 2015, I can’t blame Alfa for its humblebrag by announcing its new 510 horsepower super sedan will circulate in as little as 7:39. Things change a lot in 45 years, but it’s notable that you’ll soon be able to buy a car faster than the factory Porsche 908/03 and Ferrari 512 S race cars, at least at the Nürburgring.
Is it starting to sound good yet?
