Even if the Italian based Alfa Romeo released the Giulia`s top of the line QV as the main competitor of the BMW M3, it was eventually demonstrated that the sedan was too powerful than the German model, so instead, it turned its attention towards another potent model from BMW, the one-off M5.
The video below demonstrates how fast and powerful both cars are, each one showcasing its impressive acceleration, maximum of torque and eventually, sheer power. We are not going to spoil the surprise, you get to enjoy it later.
In order to understand both models and their high-end specs, we should take a look at their specs.
The F10 BMW M5 comes with a massive 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, developing 560 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque, the massive BMW managing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, at a topping of 250 km/h. The engine is also hooked to a seven-speed DCT transmission.
On the other hand, the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV is sleeker yet extremely aggressive with its aerodynamic design, the Italian model packing a smaller 2.9-liter V6 turbo engine, with 510 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h delivered in 3.9 seconds. The top speed stands at 250 km/h.
So we have two powerful models, the M5 with bigger power and torque than the QV, yet being visibly massive as opposed to the sleek Italian high-end version. And this would be perhaps the main ingredient for the latter one to get the advantage in the battle below. Enjoy the video and don’t forget to share your opinions with us!
