I read with interest your Future classic on the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio (C&SC, September). Great take on a good Alfa, and agreed that the pace of the turbo V6 is reflected in its V8 fuel consumption!
I was saddened by the throwaway comment about the disappointing Giulietta revival. I guess you have never driven the Cloverleaf version, because with 235bhp, amazing performance and 29-30mpg, this was and is an astounding car. Even at seven years old it holds off the latest Golf GTI, and turns heads in a way that VWS just can’t. So come on, Alastair, credit where it’s due. Alan Willcocks
