The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has been named ‘Best Performance Car for Thrills’ at the 2023 What Car? Car of the Year Awards for the second consecutive year. Powered by a 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, the range-topping Giulia Quadrifoglio accelerates from zero to 62mph in just 3.9 seconds and goes onto reach a top speed of 191mph.
Beloved by experts and drivers since it was first unveiled in 2015, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio embodies the performance and excitement that is evoked by the brand’s legendary four-leaf clover badge. 2023 marks the centenary of the Quadrifoglio, having first appeared on the RL Targa Florio in 1923 and has since appeared on the brand’s ultimate performance models.
Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor, praised the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: “While some performance cars try to straddle the middle ground between performance, running costs and practicality, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio unashamedly goes after one thing more than anything else: smiles per mile. A big part of its appeal is its storming 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine, which provides an intoxicating soundtrack, especially in Race mode. And the Quadrifoglio’s handling is even more special, with astonishing agility and a delightful natural balance that allows you to explore its limits with confidence.”
Julie David, Managing Director Alfa Romeo UK said: “2023 marks the 100th year of the Quadrifoglio badge appearing on Alfa Romeo models, so to have this honour bestowed upon the Giulia Quadrifoglio is testament to the thrill and excitement this legendary badge still brings to drivers and industry experts. Taking the title for the second year in a row shows that Giulia Quadrifoglio continues to stand the test of time as a true performance car."The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is in showrooms now, priced from £74,999 OTR.
