A video gives us the on board emotions of the action of aAlfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, engaged on the track onOregon Raceway Park, where its driver engages in a duel with a “rival” at the wheel of one Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The German supercar, on paper, is favored, because it is more specialized for use on the track, but in such cases, a top driver can make the difference.
I do not anticipate anything about the dynamics of the comparison, but here there is a lack of analytical references, which can give it scientific connotations. Basically, there is no winner and loser, because it was not a race and because the two drivers in the driver’s seat do not have the same stuff or, perhaps, the same desire to push to the limit.
All things being equal, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS probably would have no difficulty in setting better times than its Milanese rival and gaining ground even in a conspicuous way, but we are interested in tasting the magic of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio’s behavior, which proves itself really very incisive between the curbs, with unexpected dynamics for a four-door car, even if it is as sporty as in its case.
A very sharp snake car
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, queen of emotions, enjoys the thrust of a 510 horsepower 2.9 V6 twin-turbo engine, derived from Ferrari, called upon to express itself on a weight of 1524 kilograms. This model is the showcase of the Milanese brand’s excellence, with a winning DNA and an unmistakably Italian style. Its performance is at the top of the category.
The energy force is discharged to the ground, on the rear wheels only, with the help of an 8-speed gearbox which, in Race mode, ensures lightning-fast gear changes in just 150 milliseconds. The electronics, on the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, are at the service of safety and emotions, to provide the most authentic and engaging experience behind the wheel. The range of solutions offered for dynamic enjoyment is wide and includes: Alfa Active Suspension active suspension, Alfa DNA Pro selector with Race mode, Alfa Active Aero splitter, coordinated and adapted in real time by the Alfa Chassis control unit Domain Control, which allows the car and driver to always have the ideal conditions to take full advantage of the vehicle’s exceptional performance.

The numbers are important, even if in such cases they appear reductive compared to the consistency of the package: acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is liquidated in just 3.9 seconds, while the maximum speed touches 307 km / h. Needless to say, the sound is at the top, also given the hand put in by the men from Maranello. Handling is also a point of reference. The on-track behavior of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, shown in this camera car in Oregon Raceway Park, confirms this.
The other car starring in the shoot is, as we said, a Porsche 911 GT3, which embodies the boldest spirit of the Stuttgart brand. It is a beast that is perfectly at ease on the track, where it leaves little hope for its rivals, with equal driving skills. The beating heart of the model is a 4-liter, 6-cylinder aspirated boxer engine, which delivers a maximum power of 520 horsepower. Its frame, specific for use between curbs, offers dynamic surgical cutting behavior.
The acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is liquidated in 3.2 seconds, while the maximum speed is pushed to an altitude of 312 km / h. What the numbers do not tell, however, are its reference dynamics, especially on the circuit. A good driver behind the wheel of an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, however, can draw different and unrealistic scenarios in a homogeneous framework, for example keeping pace without problems. To you the frames offered by the film, which we advise you to enjoy with the speakers rigorously turned on. Good vision!
