TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a driver's car to meet or beat the best in the class, with razor sharp steering, agile handling, and raucous power. Only reliability questions will hold it back. The 2017 BMW M3 is a track-ready sports sedan with an unblemished pedigree that announces to the world: "Ask me what DTM means."
