The 2017 Cadillac ATS-V is beginning to show its age, we’d say. Not only has it missed the mark in many comparison tests as of recent, it’s also not nearly as quick as when it arrived on the scene years ago.
Since then, an Italian has been spoiling the party. Not just for Cadillac, either. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has been busy taking names since it arrived on the scene. But, how about in a straight line?
In the video above, The Giulia Quadrifoglio lines up with a Cadillac ATS-V and BMW M3 Competition for good measure. The question is this: is the Alfa downright quick or does it make up its time in the corners? The answer is, yes, it’s really quick and it’s also quite good in the corners.
The Alfa pulls away from the ATS-V and Bimmer after just a few seconds. The ATS-V becomes a defacto camera car for a reason: it sits pretty far back in the pack for the duration of the race. Taking down the ATS-V isn’t much of a surprise, though, the Cadillac is way down on power compared to the Alfa. Taking down the M3 Competition, though, that’s an impressive feat.
