One of the most notable automakers in the motor vehicle industry, Alfa Romeo, is not hurrying to jump on the electric vehicle trend. For its two foremost vehicles – Giulia and Stelvio – the Italian firm has elected to ignore the PHEV section, as their foundations are incapable of accepting plug-in technology. Consequently, the top end elements of these models are continuing to be pushed by internal combustion engines with no electric addition.

For a few, the 2.9-liter V6 turbocharged engine resting in the Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s hood may appear too traditional when gauging modern developments in the performance area. Though, we will surely regret the beloved six-cylinder device when it is discontinued, possibly to be replaced with an electric motor in the forthcoming Stelvio model.

What can be viewed in the video embedded above is not solely a factory-configured version. While all the details are not known, it appears that the person who appears to own this Stelvio Quadrifoglio has had some software changes made, boosting the power of the 2.9 V6 just a bit beyond its original specs. According to reports, the output has increased to an impressive 560 horsepower (417 kilowatts) with 565 pound-feet (766 Newton-meters) of torque. It is worth noting that in North America, the stock motor was recently updated and generally provides 505 hp and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque.

In theory, the American-spec AWD performance SUV can accelerate to 60 mph (97 kph) in as little as 3.6 seconds. Though this automobile is especially robust, meaning its velocity should be a mere 3.4 to 3.5 seconds. Its maximum velocity should be 177 mph (285 kph).

In this video clip captured along an unencumbered part of the Autobahn, the Stelvio QV achieved a maximum velocity of almost 170 mph (273 kph). Even though it comes up just shy of the promissed specifications, it is important to highlight that the conditions were far from ideal – there was precipitation on the road and the presence of other vehicles was relatively high.
