MILLE MIGLIA 2018: THE ALFA ROMEO LEGEND CONTINUES TO INSPIRE

Anticipation is growing at Alfa Romeo’s Turin headquarters for the start of the 36th Mille Miglia race. This year, in addition to being an Automotive Sponsor, the brand will celebrate the 90th anniversary of its first victory in this legendary competition. It was won by Giuseppe Campari and Giulio Ramponi, driving the 6C 1500 Super Sport, an absolute masterpiece of mechanical design. Described as the “most beautiful race in the world", the race will follow the traditional route from 16th to 19th May, starting from Brescia, stopping in Cervia-Milano Marittima, Roma and Parma. Competing in this year's race will be several wonderful classic Alfa Romeo cars from the FCA Heritage collection: from the 6C 1500 SS to the 6C 1750 GS, the 1900 SS to the 1900 Sport Spider. Alongside these rarities, a fleet of 30 Giulia and Stelvio cars will be shown; the new Alfa Romeo generation. To celebrate the important anniversary of Alfa Romeo’s first victory, the competition will visit—for the first time in its history—the brand’s Museum in Arese, known as “La Macchina del Tempo” (“The Time Machine”), where a number of time trials will be held on the facility’s test track (more info at: www.museoalfaromeo.com).The event is scheduled to take place on the morning of Saturday 19 May, the same day as the opening of a temporary exhibition entitled 11-time champions, which celebrates Alfa Romeo’s unprecedented success in the “most beautiful race in the world”.  Drivers Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc from the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, currently taking part in the 2018 Formula 1 championship, will also be present. Their participation is a tangible sign of how genuinely the racing world is engraved in the heart of Alfa Romeo.

ALFA ROMEO STELVIO QUADRIFOGLIO. THE WORLD'S FASTEST SUV.

A benchmark lap time at the legendary Nürburgring track has earned Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio Quadrifoglio the title of the world’s fastest production SUV and set a new record for the category. It is another spectacular milestone in the Quadrifoglio racing tradition and the history of Alfa Romeo. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio lapped the Nürburgring in a record breaking 7 minutes 51.7 seconds, thereby beating the previous production SUV record by a full eight seconds. An outstanding achievement made possible by the advanced technology at the heart of this ultra-high performance SUV: a 510hp direct-injection, 2.9-litre 24-valve, Twin-Turbo intercooled V6 engine was, for the first time, paired with the innovative Q4 All-Wheel Drive system and differential torque vectoring. Above all, though, this is a record that owes its success to the authentic spirit of Alfa Romeo, creating the very first SUV in the Brand’s history: a mix of true Italian passion, craftsmanship and innovation. Alfa Romeo now holds two Nürburgring lap time records: the first with the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio (fastest four-door production car) and now with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio (fastest production SUV) – both of which were achieved with driver Fabio Francia at the wheel.

ALFA ROMEO STELVIO EARNS 5-STAR EURO NCAP RATING

Stelvio, the first Alfa Romeo SUV, gains the coveted Euro NCAP 5-star rating and tops its category with a score of 97% for the protection of adult occupants. These results were achieved thanks to two fundamental features: the efficiency of an ultra-light body that is both rigid and tough and the adoption of a wide array of innovative safety devices. Noteworthy, among these, is the Autonomous Emergency Braking system (AEB), which comes as standard on every version. The cockpit of Stelvio displayed outstanding stability in the head-on crash test, while all critical body areas and limbs were also protected for the front passenger in the rigid barrier test. Tests on the front seats and head restraints provided excellent protection against whiplash injuries in the event of shunting from the rear. These results highlight the particular attention the Brand pays to safety, through a major investment in innovation when creating the platform on which Giulia and Stelvio are based: this architecture has been developed to provide all Alfa Romeo cars with superlative handling, control and safety.
