This glorious Alfa Giulia touring car is ready for the Ring – Top Gear

Barring a wild first-corner stack up that takes out every GT3-spec racer, it will not win the N24. And we can’t really describe what class it’ll contend in on account of being quite confused ourselves.

Based on the Quadrifoglio, his Giulia produces a smidge more power – at 513bhp – and carries a lot less weight, its 1.4 tonnes representing a 200 kilo-saving in race trim to yield a 3.2 sec 0-62mph time. Disallowing a wild first-corner stack up that takes out every GT3-spec racer, it won’t win the N24. The N24’s a fascinating race with a vividly diverse and big grid, from high-level racers in expertly prepared 911s, AMGs and r8s, right down to a lot of mates with a Mk3 Golf and a point to show.

A bunch of Italians – who we’ve instantly fallen head over heels for – have changed the newest Alfa sports saloon, the outstanding Giulia Quadrifoglio, into a touring cars and truck primed and ready to handle maybe our preferred race: the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

Simoncini’s name is critical, too; he owns the automobile, and he raced an Alfa 155 V6 at the N24 twenty years earlier, which you can see imagined at the end of the gallery up top.

The N24’s a wondrous race with a large and clearly diverse grid, from high-level racers in professionally prepared 911s, R8s and AMGs, right to a bunch of mates with a Mk3 Golf and an indicate prove. Figure on this Giulia sitting someplace in the middle of all of that when the grid forms on September 26. Delighted?

Alfa Romeo saloons of old have reproduced some great touring automobiles. Stick ‘DTM 155’ into your preferred search engine and prepare to lose the rest of your afternoon. Not prior to having a gander at its (sort of) modern-day equivalent.

This year’s N24 was postponed from its original May date to September (if we need to tell you why, you’ve truly not looked at the internet much just recently). Thank the lord it wasn’t cancelled completely, since it means we’ll be able to see and hear this Giulia in action, all while inhaling the envigorating aroma of burnt bratwurst and low-cost German lager.

It’s been prepared by Lanza Motorsport, and will be run by the Scuderia del Portello team. Think things aren’t sounding quite Italian enough? Its motorists are Mauro Simoncini, Ugo Vicenzi, Alberto Carobbio and Bruno Barbaro.

Based on the Quadrifoglio, his Giulia produces a smidge more power – at 513bhp – and carries a lot less weight, its 1.4 tonnes representing a 200 kilo-saving in race trim to yield a 3.2 sec 0-62mph time. There’s naturally more carbon and tougher suspension than basic, too.
