The new Giulia Quadrifoglio from Alfa Romeo

Mind Reader

Alfa Romeo's latest stays ahead of the curve

BY MICHAEL FRANK

Sporting a 505-horsepower V-6 engine derived from brand cousin Ferrari, the new Giulia Quadrifoglio from Alfa Romeo steers, brakes, and corners like a clairvoyant machine - seeming to know what you intend to do the instant you provide an input. Add in an exquisite exhaust note that purrs exotically between gear changes and rasps on downshifts, and you get an idea of the five-seat sedan's uniquely Italian flavor.

Still, even as it's ferociously fast, the car morphs to your needs with an adjustable suspension that you can soften at the twist of a dial for more comfortable daily use. Targeted at buyers of the latest AMG C-Class Mercedes or BMW M3, the Giulia features a sporty, beautifully appointed cabin with lots of leather, excellent and supportive leather seats, and plenty of trunk space. From $72,000.
