It features a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio of approximately 7 pounds per horsepower, as well as the most direct steering available, thanks to a rear-wheel-drive-based Giorgio architecture with extensive use of lightweight materials.

“While some performance cars try to straddle the middle ground between performance, running costs, and practicality, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio unashamedly goes after one thing more than anything else: smiles per mile,“ said Steve Huntingford, Editor at What Car?. “A big part of its appeal is its storming 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine, which provides an intoxicating soundtrack, especially in Race mode. And the Quadrifoglio’s handling is even more special, with astonishing agility and a delightful natural balance that allows you to explore its limits with confidence.”
