It was expected that this would happen, wasn’t it? Alfa Romeo Giulia QV managed to win the race at a 9 seconds difference from what BMW M4 GTS scored. Although they are both powerful cars, we’ll have to dig deeper in order to find out the answer to the big why.

So why Alfa Romeo Giulia QV and not BMW M4 GTS? Well, first of all, let’s take a look at both engines. The former, Alfa Romeo, is powered by a Ferrari-derived twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine. This should give us a hint that it has more horsepower than BMW M4 GTS.

The truth is that it does and the difference is quite significant. While Alfa Romeo is proud to race with 510 horsepower, BMW GTS only has 425.

Plus, it would have been fairer if the race had been between the Alfa and the BMW M3 since Alfa itself is a Sedan. But what’s done is done. And even though the Alfa beats BMW M4 at horsepower, this is not all that matters in order for a car to be powerful and fast.

The video below will show you a comparison between Alfa Romeo Giulia QV and BMW M4 GTS racing on the track. Even so, it’s hard to tell for sure if Alfa really won at 9 seconds difference. But the video offers a pretty good idea of who’s going to win.
