How in the world did that happen? How did the hot new sedan from Alfa Romeo, the super sexy Giulia, got her pretty behind kicked by the hot hatch of Mercedes, the compact AMG A45?

Giulia Quadrifoglio is the car that everyone fell at the feet of, the moment it came into the world. With its attractive lines and show-off stance, Giulia is more than your daily hot sedan. 510 horsepower neigh under that artfully sculpted bonnet and the engine sends all that power and the 600-newtonmeter torque to all wheels, making the car run from zero to hero in just 3.9 seconds.

The latest drag race from Archi Hamilton Racing puts it on a slippery track, against the stock Mercedes-AMG A45 with 450 horsepower, instead of the factory standard 381, fitted with the 4Matic all-wheel drive system and Launch Control. You may think that the fight is a bit unfair and that the Giulia is going to make the AMG eat her dust. Well, watch what happens!

Lucky for the AMG, it crosses the line before the Giulia’s raw power kicks in! But how about a rolling start? Who would you bet on? Let’s just say that who laughs last, laughs best.
