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?
