Had an opportunity to take my stock 2017 Giulia Ti Sport AWD up Pikes Peak road all the way to the summit today and I have nothing but great things to say. It's not the first time I've pushed the car really hard, but the two hour round trip up to 14k feet was definitely a good all around test for the car. There were a number of sections where traffic was too heavy to do much, but people were really nice to get out of the way most of the time and I was able to really push the car hard going both up and down the mountain. I was very impressed at how the car was able to maintain a strong and consistent power output even in the extreme altitude, and the brakes worked like a charm on the way down. Grip through the hairpins with the stock P7s and AWD was confidence inspiring and more than adequate. Got the tires singing quite a bit, but like I said I never felt any kind of lack of confidence in the traction due to the tires. And for those wondering if altitude affects the auto start/stop, I can confirm that it indeed no longer works at 14,115 feet. And by the time I was back down in Manitou Springs for lunch, it was working again. Lots of turning heads along the way, and I'd be lying if I didn't say I get a kick out of all the attention the car gets. Anyways, just thought I'd share and I definitely recommend anyone try the drive if you ever get the chance, no matter what car you're in. It's a beautiful drive not matter what, but is an amazing, technical drive for anyone with a sports car. The Giulia just never ceases to impress me. A year later and I still have just as much fun now as I did in the original test drive.
