The tro­phy car

ELLE (Australia) - - The Elle Drive -

Alfa Romeo al­legedly spent bil­lions de­vel­op­ing this per­for­mance ride, made for tempt­ing fast ap­petites. Con­sider the Giulia the Mon­ica Bel­lucci of sports cars: el­e­gant, se­duc­tive, cur­va­ceous and time­less. It’s an unbeatable garage MVP quite lit­er­ally: the top-end Fer­rari­in­spired V6 twin-turbo Giulia Quadri­foglio (ac­tu­ally, all mod­els have a chic, Fer­rari-like red start but­ton) slaugh­tered the com­pe­ti­tion on the fa­mous Nür­bur­gring track last year, earn­ing a stamp that says “fastest car of its class”. Aside from the saucy cat-eye head­lights, al­loy wheels, sump­tu­ous leather cabin and instant smug all mod­els hold as stan­dard, the Quadri­foglio has an ex­haust but­ton you can press and “Buon­giorno!”, you’ve ar­rived. Viva Italia!

Built for THE WIN­NING EDGE: per­for­mance and ooz­ing Ital­ian style, this is the clos­est drive you can get to a Maserati for half the coin.
