500 hp Alfa and it got .2 seconds on the M. They all impressed me with how well they put the power down.

Also why does the ATS-V dash look like it came from a 1997 ford windstar?

51 more horsepower and a jump on the start and still barely had the win. The M3 ZCP still impresses.

The only people thinking the Giulia QV is a match for the M3 are on this forum...every reviewer and every one driving it thinks differently.

I would love the chance to drive all three of these back to back to back and see how my m3 feels compared to the others

The dials, dash and infotainment on the GM are terrible (going to remedied in the next gen) however it was one of, if not the best driving car I have ever driven stock.

The suspension and handling were amazing...

The power delivery and transmission left a lot to be desired however.

Yeah, I was like "wtf". The ATS-V has 464 hp 445 lbft of toque, tops out around 185 mph, and roughly the same 0-60 time as the M3. So, something is up. Heat soak? Or just trying to make the vid controversial?

Alfa isn't known for its reliability...so if in 4 years these exact cars run this race again...it will be BMW and Caddy 1-2 while the Alfa will be pushed across the line by its driver!

Gotta love the Alfa's styling...beautiful car!

Lame alert.

In the comments someone says the BMW was running on an empty tank while the Alfa was full.

I checked and he was right. I didnt like this detail at all

What a surprise, 3 cars designed specifically to compete with each other all perform about the same. Regardless of who technically wins, all three cars qualify as "fast".

Still a fun test, but people will buy based on looks/emotion/price above all else.
