Whether you like it or not, Alfa Romeo made an SUV. And a fine one, it seems. The car called the Stelvio even visited the Nurburgring. In its top-notch Quadrifoglio version that is. Stelvio Quadrifoglio moves around with a proper weapon under the bonnet. You are looking here at a car motivated by a 2.9 V6 Twin-Turbo 510 HP engine. It is the same one taken from the Giulia Quadrifoglio meaning that the Stelvio can do some damage to other performance SUV’s.
In their latest run at the Nurburgring, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio managed to lap the track in 7 minute and 51.7 seconds. All of you ‘Ring lovers may already know that this is much faster than anything any other SUV managed. Including the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio outdid the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S by a healthy 8 seconds. That is a huge amount despite this being a massive track.
Now, the Porsche will certainly want its title back. When they introduce the Porsche Cayenne powered by a Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid’s 671-hp hybrid powertrain, the ‘Ring record will certainly go back to Stuttgart.
