2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia QV Makes BMW i8 Looking Normal

By  | 

The BMW i8 is easily the best designed supercar in the world, even if the “supercar” hybrid powertrain is not up to the expectations of the masses but this is no longer the case after an i8 got battered by the newly released Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The latter relies on a unique, Ferrari-inspired 2.9L twin-turbo V6 engine that can develop 505hp and apparently, this is enough to leave the i8 biting its dust. There is proof of this happening and it comes in the form of a video which saw the i8 and the Giulia QV competing against each other.

The i8’s electrical setup and AWD system allows it to jump off the line faster but the turbos on the Giulia allows it to overtake the i8 and leave a big gap when approaching the finish line. You can check the action below.
