Start Your Morning Off Right With 125 Photos Of The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio

510 horsepower in an Italian SUV? Sounds good to us. Unfortunately the $80k sticker price is a little too rich for our blood, so we’ll just have to admire it from abroad. And admire it we will in this fresh gallery of 125 images.

What we’re looking at here, in case you hadn’t figured it out by now, is the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio – the performance version of the Italian marque’s first crossover, and the first time it’s ever applied the vaunted Cloverleaf emblem (and all that goes with it) to an SUV.

And what an SUV it is. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio packs a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engineered by Ferrari – the same found in the Giulia Quadrifoglio performance sedan – generating an impressive 503 horsepower (375 kW) and 440 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Dispatched to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, that’s enough to send the crossover scurrying to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds en route to a best-in-class top speed of 176 mph (283 km/h).

Perhaps more to the point, it’ll lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 51.7 seconds – quicker than any other crossover or SUV to date, and faster than a good deal of sports cars, too. But the Stelvio will transport you along with three or four friends or family members and loads of your stuff, too, in whatever conditions the road might throw at you.

That makes it a pretty impressive piece of machinery – and a good way to start your day, if you ask us. So check it out in the mega-gallery below, captured on wet British roads that the performance crossover looks to be handling with evident aplomb.

    Rather have the Sedan. Have no need for an SUV. They are large for their interior space, have poor rear luggage space for their size and are less fun to drive than a sedan equivalent. Still if SUVs save Alfa Romeo, go for it! I willl buy the real fun ones.
