THE SPIRIT OF ALFA ROMEO, TAKEN TO A NEW LEVEL
Since 1923 the Quadrifoglio has been the emblem of all Alfa Romeo racing models. Invented by the winner of the Targa Florio, the legendary driver Ugo Sivocci, the four-leaf clover still stands tall today as a trademark of uncompromising performance and Italian passion for motor racing. All the Brand's sportiest models have borne the Quadrifoglio and the very first Alfa Romeo SUV, is no exception: Stelvio is the very first Quadrifoglio that is also an SUV. Conceived to be the best in its class and excel in terms of power, dynamic performance and handling capabilities. It is created to embody “La Meccanica delle Emozioni”.
SCULPTED TO PERFECTION
Giulia Quadrifoglio was the first chapter of a huge comeback and Stelvio Quadrifoglio is destined to continue this proud heritage. From the iconic front Trilobe to the muscular lateral bodywork, the high-performance version of Alfa Romeo’s first SUV truly embodies the iconic, Italian approach to car design. Perfectly proportioned, styled to stand out and created to deliver incomparable driving pleasure.
Stelvio Quadrifoglio features a unique driving position: high yet sporty. In a cockpit that is minimalist in its design and sophisticated in its details, the driver is always at the centre of the driving experience. Likewise, in the interiors, where excellence in performance meets maximum comfort, the most exciting driving emotions find freedom of movement. Details like the red ignition button and the machined aluminium shift paddles, mounted on the steering wheel, all foretell of thrilling performances to come.
EXCLUSIVE ALFA ROMEO INNOVATION
The Alfa™ Chassis Domain Control (CDC) is the brain that integrates the actions of the Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Alfa™ DNA with RACE mode, Alfa Active Torque Vectoring, Alfa Active suspension, and the Integrated Brake System (IBS). Moreover, the Alfa Romeo Q4™ All-Wheel Drive System guarantees maximum traction in all road conditions, while Torque Vectoring improves traction in the acceleration phase reducing understeer or oversteer. The Alfa link suspension system, the lightweight platform, the perfect 50:50 balance between the two axles, all guarantee extraordinary dynamism.
With its aluminium engine, Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s performance goes beyond pure power. What makes the driving experience on Stelvio Quadrifoglio so truly extraordinary is its perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio: the best in its class. In mere seconds, the 375kW/600Nm 2.9-litre 6 cylinder Bi-Turbo engine is capable of triggering power, energy and precision, whilst at the same time maintaining a level of agility and handling unimaginable for any other SUV.
Stelvio Quadrifoglio is at the top of its category in terms of performance. It offers a 375kW/600Nm 2.9-litre 6 cylinder Bi-Turbo, aluminium monobloc engine, coupled with the new Q4 traction system. A power density of 129kW per litre ensures outstanding acceleration. Furthermore, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio delivers a truly impressive fuel efficiency rating, thanks to its exclusive cylinder de-activation system (CEM) and weight reduction solutions, such as the carbon fibre driveshaft.
Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s sportiness finds its best expression in the 8-speed automatic transmission that, in RACE mode, enables gear changes in a mere 150 milliseconds. The transmission can be engaged, either with the gear lever central tunnel, or with the machined aluminium shift paddles mounted laterally on the steering wheel. The speed of gear change varies with the driving mode selected: meteoric in RACE mode and greater comfort and efficiency in ADVANCED EFFICIENCY mode.
ALFA™ LINK ACTIVE SUSPENSION
ALFA™ ACTIVE TORQUE VECTORING
ALFA™ DNA PRO DRIVE MODE SELECTOR
Stelvio Quadrifoglio combines extraordinary performance with superior efficiency, thanks to the Alfa™Cylinders' Efficient Management (CEM) system, which allows the 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo engine to de-activate three cylinders when the driver doesn’t require full engine power. Furthermore, a Start&Stop system of the very latest generation provides additional fuel savings in city traffic.
The unique lightness and power-to-weight ratio of Stelvio Quadrifoglio are guaranteed by the accurate choice of materials employed in its construction. The high–strength steel of its body and the aluminium of its doors, suspension and engine are both powerful and, at the same time, ultra light, whilst the choice of carbon fibre for its driveshaft is a further example of its innovative, weight saving solutions.
On Stelvio Quadrifoglio, all its electronic systems operate smoothly, thereby helping minimise fuel consumption. Moreover, its patented cylinder de-activation system (CEM) and coasting function reduce CO₂ emissions and impact on fuel efficiency even further.
STELVIO QUADRIFOGLIO: THE FASTEST SUV
The very first SUV in Alfa Romeo’s history has already taken its place at the top of its category.
A benchmark lap time of 7 minutes 51 seconds at the legendary Nürburgring track earned Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio Quadrifoglio the title of fastest production SUV on track.
An outstanding achievement made possible by the advanced technology at the heart of this ultra-high performance SUV.
Alfa Romeo now holds two Nürburgring lap time records: the first with Giulia Quadrifoglio (fastest saloon) and now again with Stelvio Quadrifoglio (fastest production SU).
