21 seconds separate the Giulia Q and Stelvio Q's B2G times. That's pretty stellar considering the extra weight.
Both are fastest in their class, and faster than the 4C.

But as said, we don't commute on the Nurburgring. Pity!

Still, it's cool that regardless of whether you are a sedan person or an SUV person, Alfa has a class-leading performance option for you to consider.

Beyond that, it's all personal preference.

Of course on an shorter, more technical track like Lime Rock Park I think the 4C would beat both Quadrifoglios...... just a wild guess....

If both cars are stock itís about a draw. On a tighter course the 4C probably would be a little faster just like you say.

If both cars were modded the 4C is a lot faster. Giulia QV is just too heavy but itís still quite fast compared to its similar weight competitors.

The Camero ZL1 1LE with 650hp at approximately $70,000 car is a little faster than Giulia QV mostly because it has adjustable negative camber. The Giulia QV does not have that and is only -.5 front camber. But Iím working on that mod. Then it would be about a tie.
FYI the ZL1 1LE amazingly can run up to -3.7 front camber. Thatís about the same as a Formula One car!
A friend of mine owns one of these cars and only gets about one track day out of a set of those big 305/30/19 front tires.

I'm dying for a QV in alfa rosso just like lars' to join my rosso 4c! But I'd need to get it as a business lease, and leases on Guilia QVs are still slightly on the ridiculous end (though they've come down quite a bit from the atrocious $1,700 a month they were at first!)

I drove both cars yesterday , the 4c is raw and beautiful but honestly the quad would blow the doors off of it , if only i could be in both cars at the same time .
If i were to do it all over being the fact that i live in NY i would buy a stelvio quad instead of the guilia . If it snows the AWD will get me through it and still have that amazing ferrari engine
Guilia is an amazing car im very happy with it i just installed about 20 more carbon parts on interior , had it ceramic coated , and added toyo RRR all around instead of those garbage perrelli corsa tires . Yesterday i merged onto the highway looked down from a long sweeping turn and the speedo said 137 ......its a monster ,and you dont know it or feel it like the 4C


My advice buy a super low mileage pre owned car .....i got mine with carbon ceramic brakes fully loaded without carbon seats with 970 miles on it for 60,900.00

HMMM, If 4C was the pitcher and Giulia the catcher, I wonder what you get????? 8C or maybe a 6C. Unless they are fudgepacking, no offspring.

"One take" performance = giulia quad all day.

If lapping for any substantial period of time = the 4C would demolish it.

If in a "race" (e.g., laps) = the 4C would obliterate it.

This is obvious because if both are driven in anger the 4C's massive weight advantage and fuel efficiency advantage would overcome the slight acceleration advantage in the Giulia.
For example:
* Significantly less stress on brakes, tires etc for equivalent g forces and performance levels
* Heat related issues would take longer to propagate as well

But for a street pull or a limited number of hot laps, you can't overcome the power disadvantage since the power/weight ratio is better in the quad.

Both awesome cars but imho they aren't at all comparable.

That was a great buy! Wow!
0-60 times are close after that the Giulia QV pulls away and keeps going.
On turns stock cars at about the same, slight edge to the 4C.
Visceral driving feeling 4C has it but the Giulia QV has itís own madman feeling for sure.
Giulia QV is bigger and gets the bigger traffic tickets! Lol. Yes 100mph comes real fast but 137mph yikes you might spend the night in the pokey.

They put salt on the roads where I live so I donít like driving a nice Alfa car with nice alloy wheels in the snow. I have a 4wheel drive truck for that. My wife has a Merc SUV she drives in the winter but we have winter rims and tires for it. Our Mercedes dealership even stores them for us. If we switch the Merc for the Stelvio that is what I would do with the wheels also.

Giulia accessories, get the LED door lights that shine the Alfa logo on the ground and also the carbon fiber door sill led lights. Nice inexpensive mods that add quite a bit at night.

See you got the CCB brakes. If you just street drive it only they will last a very long time. But if you track it beware at $1,300 per set of brake pads either front or rear itís expensive! Only two maybe three full hard track days per set of front brake pads.
And the rotors only go through about 6 sets before you need to replace because they are too underweight. Iíve had to replace my rotors already but iíve tracked the car quite a bit and had a lot of fun.
But there is a tracking solution for cars that have the CCB brakes. As I type this my car is getting the new Girodisc steel brake conversion kit scheduled to be put on my car. Actually Iím getting the first prototype as theyíre still working through a few things I am helping them with. With brake pads that will cost about $400 instead of $1,300 itís a good solution. Iím also believing theyíre going to last longer as the CCB rotors turned into cheese graders the more sets of pads you go through. When Itís all done Iíll post something in the Giulia forum and something here too.
