25. Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a fun sports car, and you can take it to the next level by opting for the Giulia Quadrifoglio. It delivers agile handling, impressive power, and razor-sharp steering, along with driver engagement. The Giulia Quadrifoglio uses a 2.9-liter V6 with a twin turbocharger and all aluminum construction derived from Ferrari. It’s no surprise that this Alfa Romeo has 443 pound-feet and 505 horsepower. It is paired with an 8-speed automatic that includes paddle shifters.
The list of best-in-class features for the Giulia Quadrifoglio includes torsional rigidity and power-to-weight ratio, the latter of which is just 7 pounds for every horsepower. It also has a 50/50 weight balance. Other performance features on this model include 19-inch Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, Brembo brakes, and adjustable dampers. The front seats are also nice and supportive, cradling you when you push this Alfa Romeo to its limits. The only reason it’s stuck in last place? Reliability issues. After a few years ironing out the kinks, we suspect the Giulia Quadrifoglio will rise through the ranks.
