It’s time for an Alfa Romeo vs AMG drag race!
On the face of it, you may think the Giulia Quadrifoglio has this in the bag. After all, with a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 pumping out 510hp & 600Nm, the stats seem to easily dwarf the 2-litre 4 cylinder power of the A45 S, which can put down 421hp & 500Nm of torque.
However, there’s one key difference here… While the Alfa is rear-wheel drive, the AMG is all-wheel drive! However, that performance comes at a cost, with the A45 S actually weighing in heavier than the Alfa!
So will the weight play against it? Or will the AWD power the AMG to victory? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

  • Hi Mat here: This is one of the last videos with this car... What should I get next... In addition to all the others 😂

    • nissan z proto

    • * Hello everyone, I'm a beginner blogger, please see my video on my channel, and tell me what's wrong with him, why are there no views? *

    • Porsche Cayman/Cayman S/GTS vs Mercedes AMG A 35/45/45s would be an interesting comparison because the Mercedes has a bit more power but the Porsche is lighter

    • But this time get a fast one unlike that slow one you tested which could only manage a 3.5 second 0-60.

    • Corvette Stingray Z51

  • the alfa sounds amazing

  • 1:48 that phone screen is disgusting

  • The merc is plain ugly compared to the alfa!! theres no competition really

  • Alfa all the way! The Mercedes may win the race, but there is only ONE winner in the beauty stakes. Alfa per La Vita!!!

  • Matt sound shaming all german cars and then gets beaten by all german cars

  • 3:58

  • Alfa does look beautiful but that A45S is a pocket rocket.

  • I think there's an issue related to tyres, seems to me that's the Merc had better ones

  • Every time those stupid comparisons

  • The Alfa actually won the braking test! It is clear if you compare the position of the Mercedes when starting braking (9:14) with the final position (9:22): the Alfa broke in less space!

  • *celebrating because the amg won*

  • That little AMG, with only a 2 liter engine has some amazing performance, great launch mode, nice, perky yellow paint job, a great daily drive vehicle, but with a feisty spirit as well if you want to take to track.

  • Still take the Alfa 🔥🔥🔥

  • Alfa la macchina migliore non c'è niente da dire

  • hmm merc has 3.6 sec to 0-60 alfa has 3.9

  • Questo sta facendo lo scemo per non battere la Mercedes

  • minute 0:10: but, but, but..... there is still someone who has AESTHETIC TASTE in this world??? Alfa Romeo for life!!

  • non avevo dubbi alcuni...mercedes da fermo le ha date di santa ragione. forza mercedes

  • Sometime, faster is NOT better

  • Hey Matt love the drag races but PLEEEEASE stop using Christ's name in vane! It is very offensive.

  • Wth is he talking about the new Giulia HAS the OPF installed. And even the Akrapovic does not sound as it used to.

  • Un 2.0 Mercedes non batterà mai un motore Alfa !!!!

  • ridiculous

  • Come on, you must to clean those cars before videos!!

  • I love thats Alfa so Beautiful

  • But the Alfa wins in the looks.🥰

  • Dude that Yianni edit got me

  • 8

  • would still buy the alfa

  • Ma quando comincerete a provare le auto sull'asciutto!!!!

  • yani is more fun to race against no cap

  • Alfa any day

  • Matt should learn or get trained on how to launch a real wheel drive car

  • Alfa needs to be in that nice red colour

  • AMG.... IS BEST

  • Zanks to god that the alfa didnt broke xD

  • Learn to drive and use the gearbox

  • Alfa no good quality car

  • Class A🤩🤩

  • A45s sound comfort mod on. RACE mod off. RACE mod down pipe

  • Matt, been watching your channel for a couple of years now. Love everything you do and improved my knowledge and passion for cars thanks to you. Please, one day drag race the McLaren 765LT vs Ferrari SF90 Stradale and the 911 Turbo S. Would be an interesting race to the 1/4 mile. Make my wish come true. Thanks. Lol.

  • The Alfa does have launch control, race mode, hit the brake, flat down on the juice it revs up to 2500 rpm, let go an whoosh

  • This guy driving the alfa is a beginner..

  • I love Alfa Romeo ♥️♥️👍👌

  • If only Alfa knew how to make a car that wouldn’t fall apart in a few months more people would buy them. I also think they really needed to do a lot more on the interior refresh than they did. I really enjoyed the way the Giulia drives but I couldn’t pull the trigger on it after seeing so many reports of the car having major component failures and tons and tons of electronic gremlins. Car & Driver’s Giulia QF was a nightmare and I can only imagine what it would be like as a private person owning a car that was perpetually in the shop. Maybe Giulia Gen 2 will be able to fix a lot of the reliability issues but seeing that Alfa has had over 100 years to figure it out and thus far hasn’t, I won’t hold my breath. In today’s world where computers and robots build our cars and every automaker has pretty much the same sets of suppliers I don’t understand how some companies can still produce such unreliable rubbish while others like Toyota/Lexus and Hyundai/Kia can build cars that will easily eclipse 250K miles with little more than oil changes.

  • A45s all day every day!

  • The rolling race is the most important

  • Porsche Cayman/Cayman S/GTS vs Mercedes AMG A 35/45/45s would be an interesting comparison because the Mercedes has a bit more power but the Porsche is lighter

  • I think Tesla wins this drag race

  • Start in 2nd gear!

  • That A45 is a killer! What a machine, but the sound is just rubbish.

  • Why not put them around a race track.? The alfa would destroy that AMG. DRAG RACE..boring. 😒

  • The vacuum lmao

  • The Alpha just has too much sex appeal over the AMG.

  • not a driver is anyone who has a driver's license ..

  • "beär"

  • Stop racing on wet roads man!!!!! Not fair for rear wheel drivers!

  • *AMG-fanboy celebrating*

  • Alfa ❤️

  • O sei scarso o in malafede, la quadrifoglio sul quarto di miglio fa 11.5/11.7 secondi, i tuoi 12.5s sono fuori dal mondo...

  • Alfa all day long

  • This episode made 2 of my fav cars an AMG fan and a Alfa Romeo Giula Bla Bla Bla italian name fan

  • I honestly thought the Alfa would smash that AMG 😭..I would still go for the Alfa tho

  • I would still rather have a Giulia QV

  • That A45 is one fast dyson 🤣🤣

  • you can t drive dude

  • One day you'll win the brake test Mat 😂

  • Matt why did you not do a burnout to warm the tires up?!

  • This Giulia looks absolutely beautiful and I think it requires to master its launch which makes it more driver's car. I love A45 too but I would buy the Alfa all day every day:)

  • Like the AMG.

  • My 4c would murder the Merc....

  • AMG The best ever!

  • AMG The best ever!

  • 2:32 nice

    • Always the shit liar videos. Paid by the Germans. What can that shit Mercedes do with a 2.0 liter engine? Fake shit.

  • Dijd

  • I mean, Alfa’s aren’t about getting the best score. Their about the feeling that they give you and they do it with a certain beauty every time. 😍🥰

  • Alfa 😍😍

  • Well everyone loves a perfect start, a perfect lunch, even a perfect car... But this is getting more obvious and predictable! We want to see engagement, we want to see Mat and other drivers to fight to achieve the best time, and that is what matters, to see how people can take everything from the car. That's why we want to see cars with manual gearboxes to see the challenge and the agony of which is going to make it. Perfect things are good but not for too much time, and everybody like everybody can launch a car with all of these systems. But how many can launch A Car?? P.s. by We I mean myself😂😂

  • Completely rigged...that Amg doest stand a chance...

  • Não é um bom programa. Ganha o carro que paga mais, não o melhor. É uma pena não serem honestos....

  • fast cars

  • Omg the yanni clip 🤣

  • The 2020 Alfa Giulia like all other petrol engine since mid 2018 got an opf filter, this kill the sound, it is the reason why it is not sounding as good as the older Giulia mat

  • When you said 421hp in that expensive looking GTI I knew it was over, nice cars though, great content

  • Love those Alfa’s

  • I go with the Merc..... nothing or the best bravo little thing


  • Mat, you have to brake boost the Alfa. Next time let me drive it 😊

  • Always the shit liar videos. Paid by the Germans. What can that shit Mercedes do with a 2.0 liter engine? Fake shit.

  • You posted a fake video again. As usual. And in real life videos a Alfa guilia qv easily wins over german cars.

  • You posted a fake video again. As usual. And in real life videos a Alfa guilia qv easily wins over german cars.

  • They both sound ridiculous. jesus it's so sad!

  • Still rather have an Alfa.
