Would owning the fastest production sedan to lap the Nurburgring be of interest to you? Luckily you're in the right place as Alfa Romeo recently announced the Giulia QV looped the Nordschleife in 7:39.
Realistically what else did you expect, with a 3.0L TT making 510 hp and 442 lb-ft of twist nestled in a sub 3,500 lb package that's been pieced together by people poached from the Prancing Horse?
Speaking of Ferrari, hows this for context. The Giulia QV equals the time laid down by Ferraris 430 Scuderia and lags a mere second behind the carbon swathed Lexus LFA. As for BMW's M4, the Giulia gaps it by a monstrous 13 seconds, we don't care how good BMW thinks the M4 GTS is, it's not 13 seconds better then the current M4.
Still a non believer? This is the official time ticket issued by the Nurburgring:
On the pricing front, Alfa used the Frankfurt Motor Show to announce Italian pricing. Your base Giulia QV clocks in at EUR 79,000 while opting for the range topper featuring carbon ceramic discs, carbon seat backs and other assorted sprinkles will put you back EUR 95,000.
Interestingly, the EUR 95,000 carbon special will be the only Giulia available at first, with order books set to open just after Frankfurt.
Your guess is as good as ours when it comes to North American timelines. Stay tuned.
