What Happens When A Ferrari V6 Powers A New Alfa Romeo Super Sedan?

Rumor

A BMW killer, perhaps?

Although it was revealed a couple of months back, the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV remains somewhat of a mystery. We know that it’ll come powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 courtesy of Ferrari, 50/50 weight distribution, and plenty of Italian sex appeal inside and out. What we don’t know are its official specs and performance times. Case in point: a new report coming from Auto Guide and Italian website Blog di Motori.

Supposedly, the new Giulia QV, after spending some quality time at the Nurburgring, completed a lap time of 7:43 – a full nine seconds faster than the BMW M4 (7:52). This has yet to be confirmed by Alfa Romeo, along with this interesting tidbit: the Giulia QV will actually produce 530 hp instead of the originally reported 510. The M4, by comparison, has 425 hp from its turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder. So what does this all mean? The Alfa Romeo Giulia QV may not turn out to be an M3/M4 fighter; it could be an M3/M4 killer.
