Car of the Year Awards 2022: Best performance car for thrills
First and foremost, a great performance car is entertaining and involving to drive, but unlike pure sports cars, they also have to be practical and comfortable enough to use every day...
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio 2.9 V6
A major part of the Quadrifoglio’s appeal lies with its twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 engine, which sounds intoxicating (especially in Race mode) and delivers razor-sharp accelerator response. Oh, and did we mention that it produces a thumping 503bhp? That’s a colossal amount of power in a rear-wheel-drive car, but even with the traction control turned off, the Quadrifoglio never feels intimidating, its natural balance allowing you to explore its limits at will.
And that’s where the magic of the Quadrifoglio lies. Unlike the ballistically quick but less engaging M3, the Quadrifoglio makes you smile on your commute as much as on a race track.
