Why would anyone trust lap times set by the least trusted nation in Europe?

Ted.. you need to watch the video mate of the Giulia QV. The only bias and figures at the ring are gonna be the Germans. Nuff said.

It's other laptimes aren't consistent with 7:32 at ring. Vantage V12s has very similar performance and laptimes except for Nurburgring and crapped out dogleg prototype at Laguna. Production doglegs apparently shift better than Motor Trend test car. Really shoulda put 8 speed ZF or some kind of dual clutch in it.

M2 very similar at figure 8 and Hockenheim as well but 26! seconds slower at Nurburgring. Five seconds or a bit more is acceleration advantage but nearly half a minute?Alfa Giulia QV is 7:50 range and this big heap 8:10 plus.

figure 8 and hockenheim short provits from good power to weight ratio. Nordschleife is just about horsepower and drag.
Then you compare a factory driver with journalists.

Now the question is how fast will be Lamborghini Urus :)

Lamborghini need to start using turbo engines. Big, heavy SUV with V10 n.a. would kill too many polar bears and trees in Amazonian rain forests. Even Bentayga with its excessive W12 would be more fuel efficient and have much more low RPM power.

Urus is Audi sourced TT V8, 650+HP.

Urus will use a 4.0 liter turbocharged Audi engine. The same, but improvet you see on RS6+, RS7+ and S8+

Another atempt to change reality. But if you believe 7:32 for Giulia qv, where m3 is capable only 7:52, then you can believe stelvio is faster than M3.
Im a porsche owner, no hiding, but if you compare times for GT4 and M3, they are consistent and logical. Now compare times for M3 and giulia qv... only on Nurburgring 20 seconds faster qv compared the rest is comparable...
And what is the reason? The nurburgring time was provided by Alfa romeo, the rest was fair...

https://nurburgringlaptimes.com/lap-times-top-100/ and http://fastestlaps.com/tracks/nordschleife
they both show that the '15 m4 was a 7:52 while in 2015 the Alfa put down a 7:39 but they came back in late 2016 and ran a 7:32 with the 2017 alfa.

But alfa do everything to do great times and other cars are tested by shitty magazine drivers.

They came back with 8 speed authomatic Giulia QV and put 7:32. The 7:39 was the time set by Giulia QV equipped with manual transmission.

My dear... the same is for Porsche, BMW, etc.
It must be hard for germans to see and Alfa Romeo on the top. But that's it.
Afterall, several other test (and tracks) have proven Giulia is faster than rivals.
Let's talk about facts, stop with personal suggestions.

Stop drugs, please.
germans are the first to do everything to achieve great lap times!
Do you remember 911 GT2... 918... M3... GTS... etc?
Stop drugs, please.

It's hard to say, but there are rumors that the stelvio's lap times were tampered with so I agree of that possibility

Glorious achievement by Alfa Romeo. Am a Porsche fan & I know the Porsche guys are not pleased, nevertheless give credit where its due. Honor!

Pointless in my mind. Losing pretty much all of its off-road ability, to get to a time set by a faster hatchback for less than half the money.
