Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio review

Published: 12 Mar 2024


What should I be paying?

There are few options: mostly carbon this'n'that and the louder Akrapovic exhaust we probably wouldn't bother with. There's not much you'd really miss in the standard kit list, but if you do miss it it's probably not available here, whereas a Mercedes-AMG would give you far more opportunities to have seconds and thirds at the options buffet table.

We ran one – an early one mind – as a long-term test car and things went wrong. Yes, it broke down. It required recovery. It flashed up more error codes than Windows Vista. Alfa insists later cars have the gremlins expunged. Are you brave enough to spend £78,195 finding out? In fairness to Alfa Romeo, that's good value next to an M3's starting price of over £82,000. The BMW will offer stronger residuals, but it's also less scarce.

You're looking at WLTP consumption of 27.2mpg and 236g/km CO2. Those are on the money with rivals. Warranty is three years, with extensions optional, and you can add service packs.
