This has not been confirmed yet but it has been rumored that the Giulia QV may have completed a lap on the Nurburgring Nordschleife in just 7 minutes and 43 seconds.

This same circuit was completed by the BMW M4 in 7 minutes and 52 seconds.

What's even more amazing, if this is true, is that the Giulia QV engine is capable of delivering 530 HP but the one on the track is underrated by around 20hp.

Once again these are all just rumors but if Alfa Romeo will probably make an announcement of sorts in the future if it was true.
Also, wouldn't it be great if the Giulia was indeed faster than the M4?

Here's where I found these rumors: http://www.blogdimotori.it/alfa-romeo-giulia-i-test-a-fiorano-ma-non-solo-video-10582.html

One weird thing about the front bumper is how it has that part which comes down on the sides, comes down way too much, almost seems like they're trying to hide something rather than it being part of a production bumper.

Is the whole speed limit thing on the Nurburgring not impacting laps and records and the like? Is that whole thing over now anyway?

looks like the glue came loose and the camp is a bit droopy

I thought the speed limit was only in effect in certain zones of the track? Don't suppose anyone has a more in depth explanation on this topic?

Following the fatal incident in VLN 1, there was some very real concern that all racing on the Nordschleife would be cancelled. After some last minute thrashing by the German motor sport association DMSB, the current track owners and the FIA, the qualifying race for the 24 Hours of Nürburgring was allowed to go on as scheduled.

Just with one small caveat, that is: two (technically three) speed restricted zones would be put in place. The first speed limit zone of 200 kph (about 124 mph) started just past the exit of Hocheichen and continued on past the site of the accident in VLN 1 to the exit of Flugplatz.

At that point the limit was raised to 250 kph (155 mph) until just prior to Schwedenkreuz where it was then removed completely. The second (third) zone was put in place just past the gantry at the start of the 1.5-mile Döttinger Höhe straight where speed was limited to 250 kph. The speed limit was in place until the bridge however it was later moved down the hill to Tiergarten.

Was the BMW M4 tested after the speed limits were put into place? If their time of 7 minutes and 52 seconds was recorded previous to the changes then that would make Giulia's time even more impressive because they were able to surpass the M4's time even with the speed limit.
