Looking For A Sports Car?

How we define sports cars

Sports cars come in many disguises, from classic 2-seater roadsters to sporty saloons with a mighty punch. We have a great range of sports car from iconic brands such as Abarth and Alfa Romeo. But you should also make a look at the Renault an brand synonymous with Formula 1 and sports car racing.

What makes a sports car great changes depending on who you ask. Some people will say it’s supercar-rivalling straight line speed, while others reckon handling and balance is king. It could be all about thrills and fun, but plenty of people just like a lot of bang for their buck.

Everyone instinctively knows what a sports car is, but pinning down a precise definition can be tricky. For what it’s worth, the Oxford English Dictionary reckons a sports car is “designed for performance at high speeds,” but we’d argue that ignores a fairly major aspect of sports car ownership: enjoyment.

Sports cars should be fast, sure, but they should also put a great big grin on your face every time you climb aboard. They tend to be less practical and more expensive than family hatchbacks, for example, so those deficits need compensating for; pure driving pleasure is surely one of the most significant carrots with which sports cars tempt buyers.

The Giulia QV is one of the most magnificent driver’s saloons in a decade. It is everything you’d want a fast Alfa Romeo saloon to be. A triumph.

It does it all: it goes, it stops, it steers and it sounds good, and it does all of those things with just the right amount of conviction and aggression. It is never too hard, never too soft, never not poised or agile enough and yet it never feels nervous at a cruise.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio is a magnificent piece of engineering.
