Meantime, here are 6 things you need to know about new Alfa Romeo SUV in the Quadrifoglio form:
1. Uncompromised power and performance
The 2018 Stelvio Quadrifoglio will put down 505-hp from an all-aluminum, direct-injection 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6. Yes, that pins this rocket as the planet’s fastest production sport utility at the moment.
Rolling on 20-inch aluminum wheels, stopping power comes from 6-piston Brembo front brakes while torque vectoring differential, a four-mode Alfa DNA Pro selector with Race mode and a Quadrifoglio-tuned adaptive suspension all handle the driving dynamics.
2. Lots of torque
In addition to best-in-class horsepower, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio features segment-leading V6 torque (443 lb.-ft.) and the most horsepower per liter in its class
3. 0-60 in record time
Hitting a top speed of 176-mph, the eight-speed transmission helps launch the Stelvio 0-60 in just 3.9-seconds.
4. That four-leaf clover
This probably only matters to the true Alfa Romeo fans but the SUV also finds the iconic hand-painted Quadrifoglio (four-leaf clover) badge that is symbolic of legendary Alfa Romeo race cars and high-performance production vehicles.
5. Nürburgring approved
Hitting the famed German track, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio lapped the Nürburgring in a record time 7 minutes 51.7 seconds – the fastest time ever posted by a production SUV.
6. Exterior & interior styling
Power aside, it’s likely the Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s design both curbside and inside that’ll make or break the deal; this top model finds a rear spoiler and side sill insert along with those 20-inch rims.
Inside, the cabin gets 14-way power front seats including 4-way lumbar all with Alcantara leather seating surfaces. Carbon fiber trim, leather-wrapped dash and doors with accent stitching are a few other notables.
