Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

Shmee does the maths on Audi’s TT RS and it adds up nicely

In Italian, Quadrifoglio means four-leaf clover. And in Alfa Romeo’s gamble to bust up the performance-saloon cabal of BMW’s M3, Mercedes-AMG’s C63 and the Audi RS4, the 500hp Giulia Quadrifoglio hits the jackpot… with a bit of help from Ferrari.

From a design point of view you can’t fault it – the Quadrifoglio’s styling is awesome. You expect this from Alfa, but it has the driving chops to match.

The Ferrari input into this car is far more that an exercise in cross-branding – it has a hint of prancing horse in the way it lets you have fun.

It’s a stiff car with the tightest steering ratio in its class, which makes for a pointy, direct, involved drive.

Fortune favours the brave, and the Quadrifoglio is the result of a courageous play. Mission accomplished.
