We've already seen what the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio can do when treated with the eat-you-alive bends of the Nurburgring, but what about the German Autobahn?
Well, the piece of footage at the bottom of the page should provide a pretty good answer to this question, since it shows the Giulia Q getting chased by a BMW M5 on a German highway.

For the record, the Autobahn only has certain derestricted sections and it seems like the two sedans aren't using one of those no-speed-limit bits. However, this doesn't prevent the driver from dipping into the potential of their machines.

While these two dour-doors play in entirely different scale footprint leagues, we can't deny the fact that they're both 500+ hp sedans with a massive appeal, so their play seems entirely legit.

Nevertheless, it's difficult not to mention the F10 M5 these days without reminding you that the M Division machine is on its way to retirement.

The F90 M5 is currently testing on the Nurburgring and the big question has to do with its all-wheel-drive. While the xDrive nature of the 2018 M5 is a certainly, we don't know whether the Bavarians will offer rear-wheel-drive as an option or not. For instance, here's a spy clip showing the F90 M5 and the W213 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 battling it out on the Ring. Oh and by the way, the Affalterbach machine is also coming in AWD form, albeit with a Drift Mode.

Returning to the M5 - Giulia Q adventure we have here, we're sorry to tell you that the M5, not the Giulia, serves as the camera car, but those of you who are all about the aural side of such an adventure should pay close attention to the first 30 seconds of the clip, which bring a bit of a decibel redemption for the artificial engine noise that follows once the two cars get up to speed.
