The Alfa Romeo Giulia might not just be a BMW M4 fighter, it could be an M4 killer.
Rumor has it that the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV model did quick work at the Nurburgring, turning in a lap time of 7:43, which is a full nine seconds faster than the BMW M4ís lap time of 7:52. The same site reporting the lap time also said that the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV actually makes 530 hp rather than the 510 figure Alfa Romeo originally reported. The current BMW M4 has 425 hp from a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine while the Alfa Romeo Giulia is powered by a six-cylinder engine from Ferrari.
Helping it navigate the Nurburgring with ease, the Alfa Romeo Giulia also features Torque Vectoring and a double-clutch transmission, with the rear differential having the capability of controlling the torque delivery to each wheel separately.
For now, take the rumor with a grain of salt. It is likely that Alfa Romeo was testing the Giulia before the speed limits were imposed on the Nurburgring Ė so donít expect confirmation from the Italian automaker anytime soon.
