This Turbocharged Alfa Romeo Milano Is a Hillclimb Masterpiece

This Turbocharged Alfa Romeo Milano Is a Hillclimb Masterpiece All the sideways Alfa action you could ask for. It's always a blessing seeing an Alfa Romeo turned into a race car. With the exhaust opened up and the car lowered on purposeful wheels and tires, you get to witness the best of what any Alfa has to offer. This Milano sedan is a great example. According to the Hillclimb Monsters YouTube channel, this Milano (sold as the Alfa Romeo 75 in Europe) is running a 1.8-liter inline-four under the hood, equipped with a turbocharger taken from a Mitsubishi Lancer VIII. Power gets to the rear wheels via a good old-fashioned H-pattern manual gearbox.

Automotive media from all around the world just can't stop comparing the Tesla Model 3 with performance sedans from different brands. We’ve seen several drag races between the all-electric vehicle from California and six- and eight-cylinder gas-guzzlers from Europe and America. Lovecars is joining the trend with a new comprehensive video comparing the Model 3 with the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The video at the top of this page doesn’t include just a drag race. The hosts of the channel speak about how the two cars behave on public roads and also take a look at the technologies in the EV. And while the Giulia QV takes the lead when it comes to driving engagement, the Model 3 hits back on the track.

The Dragtimes team recently hit the quarter-mile track at Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida with a fleet of them, including three Model X SUVs decked out with Ludicrous Plus mode. The mission? Wreak electric havoc on a Lamborghini Urus to claim SUV supremacy. And in that mission, the Teslas were a success. Sort of, anyway.

But let’s take a look at the numbers before we head to the race itself. The Giulia QV is a traditional sports sedan with a 2.9-liter V6 twin-turbo engine at the front, sending 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts) to the rear wheels. Against it, the Model 3 puts to use its dual-motor electric powertrain that’s good for more than 400 hp (298 kW) and a 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 kilometers per hour) sprint in just 3.2 seconds.

We have to admit the results of this race might’ve been different if the track wasn’t wet. Even with the slight distraction at the start from Tiff Needell, the rear-wheel-drive Giulia doesn’t stand a chance versus the dual-motor Model 3. At the end of the race, the gap is more than two vehicles long and it would’ve been even bigger if the EV had a good start.

In the end, these are two quite different vehicles. Needell likes that, especially when it’s time to show some drifting skills. That’s where the Alfa wins the hosts’ hearts.

What It Is: Alfa Romeo is resurrecting its storied GTV nameplate and applying it to a sultry two-door coupe that is expected to offer as much as 600 horsepower and some form of hybrid technology. The news was announced as part of FCA’s divulging of its five-year plan, and it is but one of a flurry of upcoming vehicles for the Italian brand, including a 700-plus-hp 8C supercar, a Giulietta hatchback, a new subcompact crossover, and a new mid-size crossover.
