AMG A45 S v Alfa Romeo Giulia QV - DRAG RACE


Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s time for an Alfa Romeo vs AMG drag race!
On the face of it, you may think the Giulia Quadrifoglio has this in the bag. After all, with a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 pumping out 510hp & 600Nm, the stats seem to easily dwarf the 2-litre 4 cylinder power of the A45 S, which can put down 421hp & 500Nm of torque.
However, there’s one key difference here… While the Alfa is rear-wheel drive, the AMG is all-wheel drive! However, that performance comes at a cost, with the A45 S actually weighing in heavier than the Alfa!
So will the weight play against it? Or will the AWD power the AMG to victory? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    Porsche Cayman/Cayman S/GTS vs Mercedes AMG A 35/45/45s would be an interesting comparison because the Mercedes has a bit more power but the Porsche is lighter

    The Alfa actually won the braking test! It is clear if you compare the position of the Mercedes when starting braking (9:14) with the final position (9:22): the Alfa broke in less space!

    That little AMG, with only a 2 liter engine has some amazing performance, great launch mode, nice, perky yellow paint job, a great daily drive vehicle, but with a feisty spirit as well if you want to take to track.

Please, one day drag race the McLaren 765LT vs Ferrari SF90 Stradale and the 911 Turbo S. Would be an interesting race to the 1/4 mile. Make my wish come true. Thanks. Lol.

    If only Alfa knew how to make a car that wouldn’t fall apart in a few months more people would buy them. I also think they really needed to do a lot more on the interior refresh than they did. I really enjoyed the way the Giulia drives but I couldn’t pull the trigger on it after seeing so many reports of the car having major component failures and tons and tons of electronic gremlins. Car & Driver’s Giulia QF was a nightmare and I can only imagine what it would be like as a private person owning a car that was perpetually in the shop. Maybe Giulia Gen 2 will be able to fix a lot of the reliability issues but seeing that Alfa has had over 100 years to figure it out and thus far hasn’t, I won’t hold my breath. In today’s world where computers and robots build our cars and every automaker has pretty much the same sets of suppliers I don’t understand how some companies can still produce such unreliable rubbish while others like Toyota/Lexus and Hyundai/Kia can build cars that will easily eclipse 250K miles with little more than oil changes.

    Well everyone loves a perfect start, a perfect lunch, even a perfect car... But this is getting more obvious and predictable! We want to see engagement, we want to see Mat and other drivers to fight to achieve the best time, and that is what matters, to see how people can take everything from the car. That's why we want to see cars with manual gearboxes to see the challenge and the agony of which is going to make it. Perfect things are good but not for too much time, and everybody like everybody can launch a car with all of these systems. But how many can launch A Car?? P.s. by We I mean myself😂😂
