Performance-oriented readers of German car magazine vote Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio top pick of category of Imported Standard Sedans
Once a year, Germany’s renowned car magazine ‘sport auto’ asks its performance-oriented readers about their favourite models. This is why the result of the ‘sport auto AWARD’, which focuses primarily on the dynamic capabilities of each competitor, is widely regarded as a benchmark for manufacturers of sports cars. For the second time in a row, the Alfa Romeo Giulia emerged strongly. In keeping with 2017, the range’s top model, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, powered by a 2.9 V6 bi-turbo petrol engine delivering 375 kW (510 bhp), won the import class of the category ‘Standard Sedans/Station Wagons’.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia also competed in the overall classification of its respective categories, facing strong German competitors. Once again, the readers of ‘sport auto’ again demonstrated their preference for Italian design, style and performance.
‘We are very proud to win this import category at the ‘sport auto AWARD’ with the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadri for the second year in a row,’ said Roberta Zerbi, EMEA Region Head of Alfa Romeo Brand, during the prize giving ceremony at the magazine’s hometown of Stuttgart. ‘Another great result is reflected by the two third overall positions against strong domestic competitors from Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce and 4C Convertible models. Also, in future, we will continue our effort to impress more than just the readers of ‘sport auto’ with high-performance cars from Alfa Romeo.’
This was the 26th sport auto AWARD’, an annual event organized by one of Germany’s top car magazines. In total 238 sports car models competed in 25 categories, 15 of them with an additional import class. Evidently, there was a good number of Alfa Romeo fans among the more than 11,000 readers who cast their votes.
