  • [NEWS] Alfa Romeo's Stelvio Quadrifoglio Is Now The Fastest SUV Around The Nurburgring



    Alfa Romeo have been rolling out some pretty decent cars over the past few years, after about a decade of dreary front-drive hatchbacks that are actually Fiats underneath. There's the 4C, the Giulia, and the new Stelvio SUV, and to top the lineup is the Quadrifoglio models. These are the fastest version of those cars, when it has Quadrifoglio on the brochure, you know it's a serious player, despite the name sounding like an Italian pasta dish.

    And now, here's proof that the Quadrifoglio name is a serious player; the Stelvio Quadrifoglio went round the 'Ring in 7 minutes 51.7 seconds, making it the fastest SUV around the 'Ring and snatching the title from Porsche - which, funnily enough also broke a record just a while ago. Take a look at this video of the incredible lap:



    The Stelvio is 8 seconds faster than the Porsche Turbo S (the previous record holder) but that was before changes were made to the track, but regardless it's still an impressive feat. Mind you, the next-gen Porsche Cayenne will probably take the record back.
