Power to weight ratio wise it is the same league

I dont see how you can argue having backseats making it okay to be 11 seconds slower.

The Giulia QV is a complete new development, there was so much big talk about how innovative the active aerodynamic features are, the FERRARI developed engine, rather light, etc.

Then they present better specs (More Power, Lighter) then an M4/M4 and claim (no Video) to be so much faster on the nordschleife.

BMW then evens up the numbers on paper (power/weight ratio) with the GTS and gives Alfa a spanking.

Looking at the power/weight ratio and the gap on the nordschleife makes it a no brainer which car is performance wise the better car.

Power to weight ratio comparing a track built M4 GTS with meth to the Alfa is comparable lol. It's only competition is the M3 and the CTS-V.

The GTS has waterinjection, and Alfa claimed that the Giulia QV is a track focused sports vehicle themselves. And being incapable to compete with a vehicle having the same numbers on paper is just hard to digest. I had high expectations and now I am disappointed looks wise as performance wise.

The quantity of seats in a car has no priority for me anyways. After all I am not a Taxi driver.

Updating this thread with some pics of Giulias at the NY auto show. I actually was lucky enough to be able to sit in the white Quadrifoglio and it felt great. Interesting the optional carbon Sparco seats are a lightweight manual design. This lightweight approach was also evident in the fact that the REAR sunshade is manual! Shortly after sitting in the car a booth employee quickly locked the car back up and wouldn't let us even peek in the trunk.

Many more pics on my Flickr page.
