The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is the fastest performance sedan around the Nurburgring with a blistering time of 7 minutes and 32 seconds, but does its 505 horsepower, twin-turbocharged V6 have enough grunt to beat the BMW M3 Competition and Cadillac ATS-V down the straights, or does it make up most of its time in the corners?
To find out, France’s Motorsport Magazine got ahold of a Giulia Quadrifoglio, a BMW M3 sedan and a Cadillac ATS-V sedan and held a good old fashioned drag race. All three vehicles are equipped with their respective automatic transmissions as far as we can tell and the drivers each have a good reaction time, making this comparison about as far as one could get.
We won’t beat around the bush, the Giulia smashes the M3 Competition and the ATS-V pretty good. We weren’t surprised to see both the Giulia and the M3 Competition walk away from the ATS-V, but to see it put a gap on the M3 with the recently introduced M3 Competition was particularly impressive. We’re not our sister site GM Authority, but that ATS-V could really use an optional performance pack.
