    • Tuned BMW F80 M3 S55 on race gas vs. stock Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

      As this is a tuned car against a stock car the result is not really surprising. For those with a tuned F80 M3 wondering if they can dispatch the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio they can rest easy. The M3 spanks it and traps 10 miles per hour higher.


      What this tells us though is that a stock M3 will have its hands full with the Giulia. Its 2.9 liter V6 output is very close to the S55 3.0 I6 in the M3.

      Stock versus stock would be great to see for context and no doubt we will be seeing many more M3 vs. Giulia races in the future.

        I don't know about you guys but I'm pumped to see Alfa Romeo back. Curious how much power the M3 was putting down.

        I guess I better start promoting alfaromeoboost as people are going to want to tune these.

        Stock vs stock? How about we put the tuned m3 on pump gas? I'd bet the Alfa would be right on its heels.

        You may be onto something there but I think the M3 would still pull quite a bit.

        We need to see stock vs. stock.

        Both cars sound terrible. I dont understand why the M3/4 sounds so bad compared to the N54/5.

        I will say the Alfa did hold its own, being stock and all.

        Maybe... but a stretch. The Alfa definitely has unique styling.

        Side by side not quite as similar as I first thought but it definitely reminded me of the M2's rear. Considering they are totally independent manufacturers though.
        Now if someone could get some closer videos of the rear of the hottie starting the races that would be awesome Click here to enlarge
