As drivers and fans of Alfa Romeo, the second vehicle in the new line-up is pivotal to the renaissance of the Alfa Romeo brand. A brand that is synonymous with Italian motoring Heritage ……. Design ……. Style and…….Performance.
Every model built, is built to deliver beautiful, inspirational and a human-centric driving experience. Each model is more than just a machine, it is the symbol of an underlying technological quest and engineering evolution, the uncompromising excellence, the symbol that is Made In Italy. Alfa Romeo is not just a brand for the Car Enthusiast, it is the archetypal drivers’ vehicle.
Over 100 years of Italian Racing heritage is hard to ignore. So it wasn’t!
Stelvio is a landmark vehicle as the first ever Alfa Romeo SUV. It follows on closely from the award-winning Giulia as the second vehicle in the Alfa Romeo line up to be built using the groundbreaking Giorgio platform.
Anyone who has had the opportunity to drive the Giulia can attest that the vehicle is truly something special with its dynamic handling and performance that goes hand in hand with styling and design that Alfa Romeo is renowned for.
The Stelvio does not stray from this. Power with balance makes a car feel alive and the driver feel the same way. These principles have made the Stelvio the first SUV worthy of an Alfa Romeo badge. But it is how it feels behind the wheel that makes it truly an Alfa Romeo.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio led Alfa Romeo’s resurgence as it confirmed it’s performance credentials by setting the current lap record for a production sedan around the Nur-burg-ring.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio, with its 2.9-litre twin turbo V6, has followed suit by also setting the current Nur-burg-ring lap record for the SUV category.
Stelvio truly is a functional SUV for the active lifestyle that still has the balance and poise to make it truly an Alfa Romeo.
Stelvio marks a pivotal moment in the history of Alfa Romeo as it re-establishes itself as a benchmark automotive brand for design and performance.
As aptly put by Ralph Gilles, head of design at Alfa Romeo. “If you own one of these cars, you’re automatically different from everybody and you’re also a little more passionate, you have a little more zest for life.”
