Should you buy one?

If you can stomach the thirst and the dated infotainment, then yes, absolutely. It has a chassis that feels perfectly at home on British roads, delivering a perfectly liveable ride in the softer modes yet good control when you ramp things up.

It’s far more engaging than the lardy AMG C 63, and it runs an M3 close for excitement. Yes, the BMW is ultimately the sharper tool, but we’d argue the exuberant Alfa is fun more of the time. This statement is even more true of the post-2023 facelift cars with their more predictable rear diff.

What we like

The engine sounds terrific in the racier modes and delivers scorching performance. Despite a comfortable ride the Quadifoglio also handles fantastically, especially after 2023’s update.

What we don’t like

It’s thirsty and has dated infotainment. Rear headroom is a bit tight and a BMW M3 feels a bit better screwed together inside.
