Alfa Romeo vs BMW vs Cadillac vs Mercedes-AMG: Fatal Four Way
Here's the deal, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio did not just go up against ordinary cars from the lineup of three of the biggest names in the auto industry. According to Motor Trend, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio competed against the BMW M3 Competition Pack, Mercedes-AMG C63 S and Cadillac ATS-V. Apparently, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio was supposed to be directly competing with the Cadillac ATS-V but due to an added option for automatic transmission, the Mercedes-AMG C63 S came into the picture.

Alfa Romeo vs BMW vs Cadillac vs Mercedes-AMG: The Race Against Time
The competition was not exactly a race against each other but rather, it was a race against time. In order to narrow down the competition, the Head 2 Head hosts had to determine which among the BMW M3 Competition Pack, Mercedes-AMG C63 S and Cadillac ATS-V deserves to go toe-to-toe with the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio by eliminating the other two through a lap-time race.
According to report, the Mercedes-AMG C63 S had quite a slow time in the lap race while the Cadillac was weeded out despite having the same lap-time as the BMW M3 Competition Package because of performance issues. Therefore, it was the BMW M3 Competition Package that earned the spot to go up against the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
