Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: the old love

The beauty of Italian car design along with a powerful V6 engine – that’s what makes the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. In the AUTO BILD test against the BMW M3, however, it was revealed that Giulia is the winner of the heart, but the pace is 510 hp releases air. The sound, design and interior of the Italian sports car are still more appealing.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

While the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is the least powerful on this list, 510 hp is still brutal.

But very few cars can completely convince in each category. And the Giulia Quadrifoglio remains a real sports car! Naked facts: rear-wheel drive, 3.9 seconds from 0-100 km / h, eight-speed automatic transmission, 600 Nm maximum torque and a top speed of 307 km / h. It’s something to be proud of! And not to forget is the story of Giulia, who is celebrating her 60th birthday this year.

Mercedes-AMG GT: aggressive, more aggressive, Affalterbach

AMG GT is considered to be the first real and “affordable” sports car from Affalterbach. Genuine means that AMG built this car completely independently.

Mercedes AMG GT

After SLS, the Mercedes-AMG GT is the second real AMG on the market.

Like SLS, which was built between 2009 and 2014 (GT was launched in 2015). However, it had a base price of 183,000 euros, GT is currently 124,277 euros. Still a huge amount of money, but only 60,000 euros less compared to SLS. Production of the GT was completed at the end of 2021.

Audi R8: thoroughbred sports car from Ingolstadt

V10 and 570 hp. Is there more to say about the car? Maybe there is more! Since 570 hp only applies to Audi R8 Coupé V10 performance (rear-wheel drive) and R8 Spyder V10 performance (rear-wheel drive). If you switch to the four-wheel drive models – that is, the Coupé V10 performance quattro and Spyder V10 performance quattro – it is 620 hp.

The top model R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro also costs at least 225,000 euros. When the R8 hit the market in 2006, it was considered the fastest and most expensive vehicle in the company’s history. And even today it is accompanied by the ten-cylinder Call a thoroughbred sports car that should really be at home on the racetrack and can still be seen from time to time in everyday life.

Jaguar F-Type R: race with style

Of course, a predatory cat should not be missing from this list. And while the Jaguar F-Type comes around the corner with still quite humane 300 hp, the model with the small suffix “R” looks completely different. The cat then delivers a brutal 575 hp! With its five-liter V8 engine and four-wheel drive, Jaguar chases its prey over the asphalt – and easily catches up with most.

The little “R” on the radiator grille on the Jaguar F-Type tells those who know that 575 hp slumber under this hood.

And if you want to be a little more contemplative on the road and feel the wind in your hair, you should invest in the convertible. Open the hood, put on your sunglasses, enjoy. However, this holiday feeling can also be paid for with a few thousand euros more: the coupe is available from 129,410 euros, the convertible costs at least 136,040 euros.

BMW M5: a rolling legend

The M5’s history is long and the model is a legend. The first generation was launched in 1985 and it still (or again) turns its head as you drive past it. It’s the same with the latest generation (since 2017). Four-wheel drive is a novelty in this M5 – you probably thought that 600 hp was way too much for two wheels. But if you do not like it at all, you can “turn off the front axle” electronically (as with the Mercedes AMG GT E 63 S).
In the 5 Series, only the M5 Competition (625 hp) and M5 CS (635 hp) are stronger than the M5. The latter was only available for less than a year. It hit the market in early 2021 and disappeared from the configurator earlier this year. Around 1100 pieces were sold, the price started at 180,400 euros. The “normal” M5 is significantly cheaper with a base price of 120,900 euros.

Audi RS 7 Sportback: super sports car undercover

Unlike most other cars here, the Audi RS 7 Sportback looks almost discreet. At least when it comes to the exterior (except for the four tailpipes and the 22-inch rims). But subtle is pretty much the last adjective that will come to mind when looking under the hood. Words like brute, crazy and crass would be more appropriate.
Audi RS7 Sportback !!  PROHIBITED UNTIL 25 SEPTEMBER 2019 12:01 !!

The simpler design is immediately forgotten as soon as the engine starts and the distinctive Audi roar sounds.

And not without reason: Because there is a V8 biturbo engine with a full 600 hp and a maximum torque of 600 Nm. The sprint to highway speed is a piece of cake for him and ready in 3.6 seconds. With a base price of 127,000 euros, the RS 7 Sportback is not a cheap toy either.

BMW M8 Competition: every inch is brutal

Every fiber in this car screams “Sport!”. The narrow headlights, the long hood, the flat body; BMW did not even try to underestimate the M8 Competition. Why not directly see the genes from a super sports car in the car? It delivers 625 hp V8 of Munich. With it, he eats breakfast from 0 to 100 km / h in a quiet 3.2 seconds.

The look is as brutal as the rest of the car! The M-department did not skimp on the design.

The M8 is a tenth of a second slower than a convertible. But it should not be noticed too often, because such an acceleration with the top down is only pleasant to a limited extent. And the top speed of 250 km / h is probably reached more often with the coupe than with the convertible.

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S: the strongest among the strongest

Even among the strongest of the strong, there must be someone who stands out. And it’s Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S. It is superior to the other models in this list in all technical data: 639 hp, 900 Nm maximum torque, 0 to 100 km / h in 3.1 seconds and a maximum speed of 315 km / h HRS. The acceleration is similar to that of some electric super sports cars.

The AMG GT 63 S comes as the absolute top model of the AMG GT four-door coupe. At least among the burners. GT 63 S Performance drives like a hybrid and can handle 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. However, it costs an additional 20,000 euros more (199,015.60 euros) than the petrol engine (178,738 euros).
