Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Enters Dyno And Delivers Less Than Its Promised Power
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has been promised to deliver a jaw-dropping amount of power for its consumers but it appears that the latter would be disappointed. Apparently, an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has recently been subjected to a dyno test and it delivered a shocking result.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: Entering The Dyno
According to Car Scoops, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is powered by a 2.9-liter twin turbocharged V6 engine that cranks out 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. It was also mentioned that this output is similar to the one that is provided by the Mercedes-AMG C6 S. However when the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio entered the dyno, it showed different results.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: The Dyno Result
It was reported that the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio showed a consistent result of only 392 horsepower and 389-pound feet of torque when it was subjected to the Mustang dynamometer. Clearly, this was not what Alfa Romeo promised for its Giulia Quadrifoglio and these results are even lower than what the BMW M3 can deliver.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: What This Means
From 505 horsepower to 443 pound-feet of torque promise to 392 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque dyno results, clearly, there is a big difference. There is a difference of 116 horsepower and 51 pound-feet of torque to be exact or 22 and 12 percent difference in horsepower and torque accordingly. Given these facts, it begs the question of whether the test was reliable or not.
Apparently, the dyno test is reliable but since only one test has been done, it cannot be concluded that the Alfa Romeo Giulia actually delivers less power than what the automaker promised. Another test may need to be conducted from another dyno to check the consistency.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: The Consequences
If the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio happens to deliver the same results, which prove that it really does deliver less than what the automaker promised, the consequences could be dire for the automaker. Alfa Romeo has just recently made its comeback to the U.S. market and this may be short-lived if one of its first models in the market fails to meet the expectations of its customers.
