Alfa has just made its Quadrifoglio cars even better with one easy change
It’s always pleasing when a big company listens to its customers and implements changes based on their feedback - and credit to Alfa Romeo, they’ve just done exactly that with their Stelvio and Giulia Quadrifoglio models.
The Cloverleaf-adorned performance cars have been showered with praise since their release, the Giulia in particular being hailed as a return to top form for Alfa after years of underwhelming efforts. However, it seems that many customers have picked up on a particular area for improvement.
One of the selling points of the Quadrifoglio cars is the delicious buzzing noise of the twin-turbo V6 engine, so it’s perfectly understandable that owners would like to spend as much time as possible with the exhaust on its loudest setting. But surprisingly for high-end performance cars, the extra-noisy exhaust can only be accessed by putting the car into race mode, which also turns off all traction and stability control systems, leaving you alone with 503bhp!
Thankfully, Alfa has listened to its customers and addressed the issue. Via Carbuzz, a spokesperson revealed that “new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio orders as of this month will allow our customers the option to fully open up that gorgeous-sounding Quadrifoglio exhaust in Dynamic Mode.”
In short, you’ll now be able to have your exhaust in the loudest setting while keeping those safety systems switched on, meaning you'll be able to enjoy that gorgeous noise without the bottom-clenching fear of wrapping your new Alfa around a lamppost every time you drive through a pudde. Two great cars just got greater!
