Hey folks, I am spamming a bit here but here's the review of the Giulia.

 

There is a video in the description. 


Thanks to @wind and all the others for the spelling exercise at the beginning of the video.

 

I tried to keep it short and to the point: let me know what you think.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you. Rollover is when you wished there was a wall.

The best part is the video, in which you're wearing a collared business shirt and slacks. Did you have a meeting to be at or do you just like looking nice at the track?

Hey you're Jalopnik famous for getting black flagged three times at COTA!

Nice driving.  Sounds like an amazing car.

It's that or an ATS-V  for me as the only two sport sedans I would currently consider.  

 

 

I liked the review, the photography was great too.   

 

 

 

 

 

Would be especially cool to have a laptime at COTA with a Giullia quadrifolololoiololiololiolilio on tracklaps.net  (just throwing that out there) 

 

 

do you have a translate button for the C7 GS review?

BMW's just don't do it for me.  

 

They're nice (and wouldn't mind having an older one track prepped) but for a luxury sport sedan as a daily... yah I dunno I really dont have a good answer.

I am in the process of translating the C7 review (as well as adding others)

 

As far as laptimes, by looking at all the videos I "think" the best lap was a 2.30. There was a lot of traffic and it was hard for me to resist the Hooning call.

Didn't Nuvolari always wear a bow tie?  Or was that Hawthorne?  In any case . . . UP YOUR GAME!

Can't watch the video at work.

But I love the fact that the Hellcat photoshoot is at TWS.
