Alfa Romeo Stelvio, the first SUV of the Alfa Romeo brand has been unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show and has been one of the cars that truly caught the attention of the automotive world at the said event. Thus, we want to follow the progress of this jewel and report the latest news about it. Check out the Stelvio as it eyes to break records at the Nurburgring track and also know the might be the price of it.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV To Be The Fastest At Nurburgring
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV promises to be the fastest SUV at the Nurburgring, beating defending champion in its category, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
Alfa Romeo is based on a computer simulation that sheds some data that positioned him as the fastest at the track, according to Road and Track.
To achieve this, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio will use the full potential of its twin-turbo V6 2.9-liter and origin Ferrari, the same that gives life to Alfa Romeo Giulia QV, which produces 510 hp and 600 Nm of torque motor. This allows it to go from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 284 km/h. An automatic gearbox eight relations and a system of total traction Q4 are responsible for getting these figures.
Reid Bigland, head of the company, said the data extracted from a simulation showed that the Stelvio Quadrifoglio Verde completed a round the track in 7 minutes and 59 seconds. But the real race track is treacherous, long and difficult, so a simple mistake can pull a fast lap ground so we will just wait and see, according to Top Speed.
Alfa Romeo Pricing
The estimated price of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been revealed as well.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been the talk of all fans since we met who were working on it and, moreover, would be based almost entirely on the Alfa Romeo Giulia. At the moment, the data are somewhat limited, but we know it will have four-cylinder engines and the powerful V6 biturbo 510 hp Crowning the range of engines. Based on this, we know that Giulia QV, which also equips this engine has a starting price of $95,000, so one would expect the Stelvio to be above this price slightly.
On the other hand, one of its direct competitors, the Maserati Levante goes beyond $130,000, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is around $180,000 while the BMW X5 M and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 starts at $150,000.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio will clearly not come to these figures and will just be around $120,000 making it the must buy powerful SUV in the market.
