One-Off Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio Enlists For 2019 Gumball 3000

Aston Martin is not the only automaker to (officially) enter a car in this year’s Gumball 3000.

Alfa Romeo jumped on the bandwagon too with a Stelvio Quadrifoglio that features a very special livery. Sure, one may argue that the Stelvio is not a supercar and therefore has no place in the Gumball 3000 but apparently, the organizers are okay with it.

The one-off Stelvio Quadrifoglio features custom paintwork created by the Alfa Romeo Design Centre that pays tribute to the special livery seen on the Fiorano circuit on February 14 during the shakedown of Alfa Romeo Racing team’s C38 Formula 1 car.

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s livery reminds of the race car’s San Valentino paintwork due to the alternating cloverleaves. The Volcano Black bodywork is ornamented with a grey cloverleaf motif that covers the entire surface. The underlying pattern is adorned with fluorescent green decorations including a large snake on the side panels, Alfa Romeo lettering on the rear window and front fenders, and the brand logo covering the entire roof.

The 20-inch alloys are painted in the same green hue, as is the Alfa Romeo logo on the black brake calipers. Another unique touch is given by the burnished taillights. There are no changes to the powertrain which consists of a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces a respectable 510 PS (503 hp).

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio one-off won’t be Alfa Romeo’s only contribution to this year’s Gumball 3000. The automaker will host an on-track experience session on June 12 at the Balocco Proving Ground, as part of the stage from Venice to Monaco.

The complete on-road adventure involves over one hundred supercars, prototypes, and one-offs that will cover 3,000 miles (4,828 km) on roads open to traffic. This year’s event starts on June 7 in the Greek island of Mykonos and ends in Ibiza on June 15.
