The Alfa Romeo Giulia sports sedan definitely has to be one of the finest looking cars that came out from the house of Alfa. The sedan you are watching in this video trying to making its presence felt with that beautiful exhaust note is called Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
Powered by the 2.9 Litre, bi-turbo, 90-degree angled V6 producing about 505 Hp and an equally impressive 601 Nm of torque is actually borrowed from Ferrari. This car definitely also has to be the most powerful Alfa Romeo car built till date. What is even more interesting is also the fact that the engine has been paired to a 6 speed manual transmission with shorter gear ratios for better acceleration. The Giulia is able to sprint from 0-60 MPH mark in just 3.8 seconds while the top speed is about 307 km/h mark. If you are still not happy with the performance figures perhaps this will help you to change your mind, the Giulia Quadrifoglio completed the Nurburgring lap in a record-setting 7:39 minutes impressed?
Alfa Romeo claims not only is this sedan powerful but is also fuel efficient at the same time because it comes equipped with cylinder deactivation technology and engine start/stop to keep a check on fuel consumption.

There are plenty of vintage car shows happening around the world every month, but if we talk about the top ranking shows, Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is surely at the top of list. This year the famous vintage car show celebrated its 65th anniversary with the same elegance, as always.
The head turner and winner of the ‘Best of the Show’ was a stunning 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Cabriolet. This was not the first time for the Italian company made 145 inch long car has garnered a medal, but earlier in 1933 won the Grand-Prix d’Honneur at Cannes, after being displayed at 1932 Geneva Auto Show and getting huge appreciation, as Mr. Jim Patterson of Louisville, Kentucky, the proud owner of the car was saying. Incidentally, ‘Best of the Show’ feat was not new for Mr. Patterson, as his 1933 Delahaye D8S De Villars Roadster won the same prize in 2010.
This year in the ‘Best of the Show’ category the 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Cabriolet had some tough and serious contender, such as a 1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Kellner Torpedo Phaeton, a 1937 Delahaye 145 Franay Cabriolet and a 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport Ghia Coupé, but at the end the accolade for winner was reserved for the massive shiny black Cabriolet.
Alpha Romeo surely attracted all the eyes of the world when they decided to take the cover off their new offering called the Giulia.
This 4 door sedan looks extraordinary and it was developed by a team of designers and stylists who calls themselves ‘Skunks’. This sedan definitely looks futuristic and also comes with modern designs but they have not let go of the old heritage as well which can be clearly seen from their design. Under the hood the Giulia is equipped with a Ferrari V6 unit. This car will be made available in both RWD and all wheel drive architecture while its platform is developed Maserati themselves.
This has been engineered to perfection and gets a perfect 50/50 weight balance distribution and in order to achieve that the engineers have actually placed the engine and other mechanical parts in between the two axles. Coming to the power output the V6 unit from Ferrari is capable of producing about 510 HP of peak power. All this power helps the car to sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.9 seconds. All that extreme performance figures was possible because the 6 cylinders of the engine are built completely of Aluminum which has helped in weight reduction.
