this is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio it has 22 more characters in its name and the bmw m3 and 9 more syllables in the Audi s4 it also costs $80,000 that's right this car costs eighty thousand dollars even though it's made by a company that has only sold two models in the United States in the last 25 years one a low volume sports car that nobody remembers in - low volume sports car that you can't drive so you're carrying anything larger than a

beach towel Alfa Romeo has no track record in United States virtually no record of reliability and a spotty dealer network and they want you to pay eighty thousand dollars for this thing yes they do and it's worth every penny today I've borrowed this Juliette Quadrifoglio from a viewer near Washington DC and I'm going to show you exactly why it costs 80 thousand dollars first as usual I'm going to show you all the Julie is weird Italian car quirks then I'm going to show you it's cool performance features and then I'm going
01:03
to take it out on the road and go for a drive and to find out more of my thoughts click the link below to read my column on autotrader.com slash oversteer okay so quark you open the door to this car and you find something that truly amazes me it's an italian performance car that isn't very quirky let me show you what i meet the window switches are normal and so is the mirror control surely there must be a weird Italian car quirk in here somewhere but the door locks are normal and so is the door handle and so is the headlight switch
01:35
the parking brake is normal and it's right in the middle just like every other car the julia has normal climate controls like you'd find in any other car normal climate control vents and normal steering wheel controls push the big red starter button mounted on the steering wheel to turn on the Giulia and you'll find that the infotainment system is normal too and surprisingly simple to operate you want navigation there it is why isn't it harder this is an Italian car why isn't this stupid and counterintuitive also not
02:06
counterintuitive the Sun visors their normal the dome lights they are normal to the glovebox it's normal now the stereo volume controls are a little strange and that they're located down here on the center console next to the transmission lever but it's incredibly easy to figure them out turn it this way for more volume this way for less volume on/off next track previous track where is the Italian car and sanity speaking of Italian car insanity stuff isn't exactly falling off on the inside either in fact look at this interior it's
02:37
pretty nice the stitched leather everywhere even in the rear door panels Alcantara covers the front seats and the rear seats the steering wheel is lined with more Alcantara and more stitching and carbon fiber trim the ship's paddles feel great and they stay in place when you turn the wheel just like they should the owners manual comes in this nice stitch to leather book turn it into race mode and the Giulia on the screen turns yellow and speaking of the infotainment system how's this for attention to detail the screen is an unusual shape so
03:08
there's no ugly gaps surrounding it like in every other car this car seems well built of course there are a few unusual quirks like you'd expect the trunk release is a tiny button inexplicably placed where you can't see it by the pedals I have no idea why speaking of the trunk the trunk itself has two buttons one opens it the other locks the whole car neither is labeled you just have to know the other weird quirk in this car is the turn signals now you push the turn signal down turns on a turn signal just like a normal car except now let's
03:39
return to the neutral position a BMW is also do this to turn the signal off you should just push it back down except in this car that doesn't actually turn the signal off just keeps going so you push it the other way except now the other turn signals on try to cancel it that won't work so you push it the other way and the other turn signals on and the other turn signals on is there's no real way apparently to turn off the turn signal so I guess I'll just drive around all day with the single run now the other interesting thing about the Giulia is the placement of the b-pillar in most
04:12
cars it's much further back it's basically behind where you sit when you're driving the car but not in this one then the Giulia the b-pillar is right here which reads it when you look to the side you see a pillar now personally I don't think that makes it any harder to get in and out of this car I think it's about as easy as a normal car I just think that's a strange design quirk of the Giulia but by and large this car isn't some Italian hodgepodge of stupidity or strangeness or quirks you have to accept just like every other Italian car in fact this car is well
04:42
made and well designed and surprisingly intuitive its kind of German okay so you expect the Giulia to be weird and quirky and have all these strange Italian touches that you have to compromise on but it's actually pretty well thought out but most cars in this segment are pretty well thought-out that's not why it's worth $80,000 for more on that here's a comprehensive tour of some of the things that make it especially unique the Giulia is a rear-wheel drive sedan that's almost exactly the same size as a BMW 3-series and slightly
05:12
smaller than a Mercedes c-class the Quadrifoglio is the high-performance model and it uses a 505 horsepower twin-turbo v6 it also adds a lot of really cool performance stuff like an adjustable exhaust note a carbon fiber front splitter a carbon-fiber rear whether a rear diffuser with quad exhaust unique wheels with big Brembo brakes a drive mode selector with launch control and a carbon-fiber hood and roof to save weight but back to that exhaust note let's take a listen
05:48
[Music] and it gets better the Julia Quadrifoglio is 505 horsepower means it has 60 more horsepower than a base level bmw m3 and 40 more horsepower than a base level Mercedes c63 AMG it will do 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds it'll do 190 miles an hour it is the fastest sedan with a trunk around the Nurburgring in other words it looks great on paper it clearly looks
06:47
great in person but that's some of the names for the ultimate question how does it drive alright we're looking good alright let's do this we're going to drive the Giulia you can just tell instantly how direct the string is gotta turn you just move it a little bit gorgeous Wow it also doesn't feel like you're giving up anything compared with VA which is very important because you're always going to take a leap of faith ina Julia Woodson set up like that bmw
07:22
m3 which everybody knows you know it's gotta it's got to be just good and every other pretty quick they're about as quick as you're going to get without it - applause he has it down center so nice it feels good and it sounds good that noise but it thinks I'm going over a landline yes like gives you guys the bumping sound that you did if you're actually going wrong oh man those little wheel spin there between Chris and secularly property oh the steering is so good it's strong
07:54
direct and precise if incredible how directed is considering that we're driving four-door sedan at Facebook that's gonna kind of kick your ass and that's when your side opponent and it's so bad so bad from a speed you're already going if you put your foot down at 40 it feels wildly fast so that is like 50 crazy it just filled it so eager to go it's like really really quick I think this looks like a little car on the
08:27
outside it looks like whoo it's a pretty car and you don't really think it's going to be brutal and then it turns out to be really really fast I love the fact that despite the fact that it's a pee stick you don't feel like you're giving up anything I really don't feel like I'm losing anything because I chose a v6 instead of the PAS and all the rivals had and also that do think somehow an interesting sound isn't good if you want your hearing and so provides no bigness at all it doesn't feel too light which is the biggest plan I have what most of the end of users it feels just perfectly
09:03
weighted exactly how I would design the steering in the car like this if I were creating star like this this color is just as faceted citing it as fun both in terms of acceleration and handling is any of the two more cars on a track which is no easy feat alright so now we're back in a normal mode your natural those they call which is the middle of the three and it feels pretty normal this is this is a normal color you have the ability to have a crazy high-performance ridiculous mobile when you want to but also if you just want to community land hanging out let the music you can do that too
09:37
the core is not large one things I love most about one things I started to not like as much about BMWs as they're just growing and growing this is quite small and very Oh Ray's here best race experience and sister Emanuel says all right if you say so if beauty players on the ship a lot different rims it's amazing how much
10:10
this car changes needs bill promote remote the the handling changes the ride changes these shifting planet acceleration changes being the foundation very few cars make that many alterations from a couple foot to the quick I can't believe how much they say that I'm in race mode it really feels like we're two completely different car and I'm really impressed the car really impressed with that what if they do a really really helped well-rounded feel well they can feel like a luxury car what you want to feel more ignoring can
10:41
really feeling course only one I'm most impressed though is the fact of like this is how fine but to be like three-quarters is good and really wanted to get beautiful any one thing different get it right that this or is every bit as good as entry and you buy it because any it's better maybe you feel like you liked it more it looks better that's a legitimate thing to do yeah I don't often feel that way and I wasn't getting speculum so that's the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio it's absolutely beautiful to look at it's surprisingly well laid
11:17
out and well-built on the inside it's full of awesome high-performance features it has more power and better performance than its rivals and yes it is worth every bit of $80,000 if you're shopping for a high-performance luxury sedan this thing should absolutely be on your shopping list along with maybe an extended warranty today I'm going to do something that I've forgotten oh yeah here goes it's rolling already I'm just good this one up for sure that's really
11:47
good it's surprisingly well built and well laid out it's gorgeous to look at I already said that one why don't you have a teleprompter for me really bro
