Alfa Romeo has announced the Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s price up to USD81,590. So why is it so expensive? Well, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with the exclusive aluminium 2.9-litre V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine, developed with inputs and engineering know-how from supercar company, Ferrari.
It delivers maximum power of 510hp at 6,500rpm and generates a maximum torque of 600Nm from 2,500 to 5,000rpm and is teamed with the specifically calibrated 8-speed automatic transmission, that shifts gear in just 150-milliseconds in ‘Race’ mode. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds, and reach a best-in-class top speed of 290km/h.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is also the “fastest SUV around the circuit”, having clocked the new record for its class on the iconic Nürburgring: 7 minutes 51.7 seconds.
