The internet is today a happier place to be as the first instalment of ‘Chris Harris Drives’ has arrived at the Top Gear website, his first weapon of choice is the mighty and rather pretty Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio features a weapons grade all-new 2.9-litre Bi-Turbo V6 engine, producing a staggering 510hp and 600Nm of torque, all this wonderful power and torques propels you to 62mph from standing in an even more staggering 3.9 seconds which will carry on to an insane figure of 190mph.

The new film which is reuniting Harris with his camera-wielding partner Neil Carey from his ‘CH on cars’ days was shot in Italy at Alfa’s own proving ground the ‘Circuito di Balocco’.

One of the many stand out moments include some gorgeous slow-motion shots which only serve to make the mighty Alfa look evening more stunning. The only irony of the film is that Harris gets to drive the manual gearbox version of the Giulia Quadrifoglio which we cannot have here in the UK, as you watch the film you can hear Harris’s verdict on the manual which by the sounds of things means we dodged a bullet.A strong first offering from the Harrismonkey, we await the second instalment of this new series with baited breath………..
