The new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a stunning return to form from the Italian marque, with its monster 503bhp V6 engine that can achieve 0-62mph in 3.9secs and hit 190mph. But is it a better super saloon to drive and own than the 444bhp BMW M3 Competition Pack?

Autocar’s Matt Prior reckons so, but Dan Prosser disagrees. We sent the pair to argue it out - on some of the finest driving roads in Wales.

Really good video. In the spirit of forum criticism can I ask whats the point of testing these 500ps cars on cart tracks in Wales? I know the roads give a chassis a work out but not much else.

I'm pretty i read a review or two where the Merc came out on top. So I'm about curious why it's not even mentioned in this video.

Because it was a comparison of these two,but,I agree,especially when you consider that the Alfa could cost over £70K with options....?

    The BMW 5 Series is top of the mid-exec pack, but is there still room for a diesel saloon in everyday family life?

    Does running a plug-in hybrid really make sense as a 500-mile-a-week driver? Six months with a Toyota Prius Plug-in should give a conclusive answer
