Let’s count out 14 seconds: one, two, three, four, five, six, (bored yet?) nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen. That’s how many seconds faster the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is around the Nürburgring over a BMW M4.
The new Giulia QV reportedly set a lap time of 7:39, or seven minutes and thirty-nine seconds. That’s faster than I can run a mile. That’s like, three minutes faster than I can run a mile.
That’s really quick if the times reported by Alfa are correct, as the times taken on the Nurburgring aren’t really checked by anyone. But either way, the new Quadrifoglio is sure to be a speed demon.
In this world of hypothetical lap times, the new Alfa beats out the Lamborghini Murcielago, the Camaro ZL-1, a Mercedes C-63 AMG Black Series, and is sitting pretty with the Lexus LFA, Nissan GT-R, and other ridiculous cars edging out only a few seconds faster (according to nurburgringlaptimes.com).
Some other Giulia news fresh from Frankfurt is that the car will go on sale with five color options (Competizione Red, Trofeo White, Vulcano Black, Vesuvio Grey and Montecarlo Blue), a top speed of 190 mph, and some Italian pricing figures (around $89,000 to $107,000), but we’ll get a clearer idea of the U.S. pricing soon enough.
For a good idea of what a Giulia Quadrifoglio Nürburgring track time is like, calm yourself, close your eyes, and now open them to watch the video we posted last week of.. well a Quadrifoglio going around the Nürburgring.
I am very excited for this car. I’ll take one in Monetcarlo Blue, please.
