To the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, then: launched in 2017, very mildly revised in the spring of 2024, and still among the best sports saloons on sale in our eyes.

Few car makers inspire such unwavering loyalty and enthusiasm from those who purchase their products as Alfa Romeo – and fewer have been so guilty of taking such passion for granted in the recent past.

There have been a procession of plain-handling Alfas, continuing to this day in the form of the latest Tonale crossover.

But in among the range all still lies one of the most entertaining cars launched in the past decade. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is a brilliant handling, fine riding, accelerative and responsive sports saloon of the best kind. Good enough to compete - perhaps still beat - the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63.

Alfa says it’ll be all-electric by 2027. So the Giulia Quadrifoglio might be the high point its combusted cars go out on.
