Will I ever stop buying V6 cars

Post by Rossco » Mon Jan 29, 2018 3:49 pm

So having had a rather traumatic relationship with the F Type I took the plunge yesterday and ordered an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

So another 2 years in a V6 engined car.......sorry I know I'm letting the side down.


F Type......the new BL Allegro

I just traded in a V8 Jag for a V6 Kia Stinger. The way I see it, the twin turbos are worth a cylinder each :) Plus 0-60 in 4.7 is not too shabby....

Just looked the Alfa up, that's impressive! Apart from witchcraft, how do they get 510bhp out of 2.9L ?

I agree, the Giulia is 2.9ltr and 510bhp :shock: and it sounds like thunder......goes well too

The same way the Italian motorcycle speedometers work.... My LeMans, sitting in the traffic reads significanlty higher...
