I miss the time from 0-300 and 200-300.
The Alfa seeme to have the much better brakes, mybee this great breaking result comes also from the lightness...

Both are really nice cars and especially the CTS-V is a really unique car here in Germany much more than any BMW, Mercedes, Audi or Porsche. The Interieur in the Caddy is much more special than in the Alfa, but evem the Alfa is not bad. The exhaust sound is really amzing. The pre-owner of my CTS-V said the sound is much better than of his new McLaren 765LT :)

Those results were not expected, even though Giulia QV was supposed to compete with ATS-V.
