Alfa Romeo has its sights set on hunting high-performance German sedans.
Introduced to the U.S. at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio isn’t just stunning, but it’s fast… really fast. The Italian automaker claims that the Giulia Quadrifoglio holds the Nurburgring record for fastest four-door production sedan with a lap time of 7:39 and considering it’s powered by a Ferrari-sourced twin-turbo V6 engine, we’re not surprised. The 2.9-liter mill produces an impressive 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, allowing the sedan to go 0-60 in just 3.8 seconds.

Combine that with massive Brembo brakes, stylish 19-inch wheels and near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution and we have a feeling the Giulia Quadrifoglio will be worth its price tag of around $70,000.
If that’s too much for your wallet, Alfa Romeo also announced in Los Angeles that the standard Giulia model will be priced around $40,000 and will be equipped with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 276 hp.
