Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the long awaited first SUV of the Alfa Romeo brand that has been officially presented at the recently concluded 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. It has captured a lot of attention in the automotive world, so much that now, people are thinking about the possibility of an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Spider - the convertible version.
Following the steps of the already established Alfa Romeo Giulia, with which it shares a platform and powertrains, the Stelvio aspires to become a tough contender in the SUV segment and is expected to prevail. But this Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Spider - the convertible version take it up a notch. And although it may be far from the future, it's just too good looking not to share.
This could be the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Spider made by X-Tomi designer, which can be seen at Auto Evolution. Historically, very few SUVs with convertible versions have succeeded, but lately, it seems that many manufacturers consider this body variant in their future projects and, why not, Alfa Romeo could be one of them.
Coming from pixel remasterer X-Tomi, the image we have here at Motor Tend obviously start changes with the canvas roof, but the crossover also loses its rear doors, in a move that should counterbalance the lost styling points brought by the cloth top being folded at the back of the car.
Although the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Spider would create a great contender to the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, which has received a fairly warm welcome from the crossover buyers around the world - and thus only means that a market for such a thing is in existent, Alfa Romeo has no plan to make this a reality, not just yet.
The brand is now full on its plate as they plan to debut more new Alfa Romeo cars in the next few years as reported by Auto World News before. According to the plan, a large sedan, one more SUV, a hatchback and two vehicles marked as "specialty" will debut before 2020.
For now, the work of the designer for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Spider is impeccable although the result can get a little squeak. What do you think of it? Sound off in the comments below.
