German magazine Auto Bild Sportscars had more competitors for the prestigious ‘Sportscar of the Year’ award than in any other category. The category had a total of 24 vehicles competing for the winning title, but there could only be one winner; the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
In 2019, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio took home the crown, however this year the Giulia was able to overtake it in the running. Both of these models have now won Sportscar of the Year from Auto Bild Sportscars, and are both powered by the identical V6 biturbo petrol engine, which generates 510hp.
Giulia Quadrifoglio is the showcase for Alfa Romeo excellence and an even purer expression of unparalleled performance, winning DNA and unmistakeable Italian style. Giulia embodies the most refined concentration of functional Italian design, all in inimitable Alfa Romeo style.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio’s class leading performance is guaranteed by the powerful 2.9 V6 B-Turbo powerplant in 100% aluminium, capable of unleashing no less than 510mp and 600Nm maximum torque at 2,500rpm. Delivery to the wheels is the responsibility of the Alfa Active Torque Vectoring system, while the 8-speed automatic transmission is calibrated to optimise fluidity and comfort. Enter RACE mode and the Giulia reaches its full potential with lightning-fast gear changes as quick as 150 milliseconds.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio is fitted with a range of systems designed to enhance the pleasure of driving, and offer the driver the most authentic, engaging experience possible behind the wheel. These systems include Alfa Active Suspension, Alfa DNA Pro selector with RACE mode, and Alfa Active Aero splitter. They are all co-ordinated and adapted in real time by the Alfa Chassis Domain Control unit, constantly working to ensure ideal conditions for both car and driver to make the most of the vehicle and the exceptional performance provided.
‘Sportscar of the Year’ is elected by the editors of Auto Bild Sportscars presenting readers with a choice of 117 current vehicle models in 10 competition categories, from small cars to SUV, both standard and tuned versions.
