Last week we saw thew new Porsche 911 GT2 RS break a Nürburgring record for the faster production car. Now Alfa Romeo has claimed the title of the fastest SUV around the Nürburgring with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio managed an impressive lap tome of 7 minutes and 51.7 seconds, this is the fastest time so far for a production SUV.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio record was established by Fabio Francia, the same driver who also set the track record for the fastest four-door sedan in the world on the Nürburgring with the Giulia Quadrifoglio in a time of just 7 minutes and 32 seconds. The first SUV in the over one-century-long history of the brand embodies the most authentic Alfa Romeo spirit: distinctive Italian style, state-of-the-art and innovative engines, perfect weight distribution, unique technical solutions and excellent weight-to-power ratio.
The Quadrifoglio version of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is powered by a 2.9 litre V6 Twin Turbo that produces 510 horsepower, you can find out more details about it over at Alfa Romeo at the link below.
