Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is being worshiped by the mortals from all over the world, but gods have their weak spots too and we are here to talk about one of them.
To be more precise, we’re dealing with the Giulia Q that recently roasted its clutch. The unlucky episode was caught on the camera, having taken place at the 2016 Zoute Grand Prix. And no, the smoking episode is not just the phase, so this super-sedan will need the new clutch.
The Dutch event saw two Alfa-owned vehicles showcasing the might of the Ferrari-developed 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6, but, after the rushed take-off, one of them delivered clutch, instead of tire smoke.
There’s probably no reason to point our finger at the vehicle, as these issues are usually the fault of the driver. And since we are talking about a demo car, we could only imagine the kind of abuse this 502 horsepower sedan had been subjected to.
Sure, burnouts and blitz take-offs are OK, and the idea is that your left foot must not linger on the clutch – while it might seem counterintuitive not to ride the clutch in difficult situations, as a risk of stalling can’t be ignored, riding a clutch will generally lead to moments such as the one seen here.
And then again, if changing gears yourself isn’t that important in your driving life, well, the Italian automaker also offers the range-topping Giulia in automatic trim.
