But for now, the French firm does not want to reveal too much technical information to enhance its official release, all information points start to be a sport of the highest voltage. Mechanically bet a gasoline engine 4 cylinder 1.8 TCE, derived from the current 1.6 turbo riding the Renault Clio RS with up to 220 hp in the Trophy version. Albeit with front-rear layout here anticipated start two variants of power: 250 and 300 hp, the latter with specific turbo and cylinder head.

Presumably associated with a revised EDC automatic transmission double clutch, the new mechanical assembly Alpine A120 also to future new version it could then serve as a basis Renault Megane RS and even a new Nissan Pulsar Nismo, all born within the Renault / Nissan alliance. Best of all is that this new supercar promises Alpine final weight of only 1,100 kg thanks to intensive use of materials such as aluminum. Certainly it promises a great performance and maximum driving pleasure.

Although, again, the official date of submission will be in February, Alpine plans to delay a few months its market launch. Y, presumably not until 2017 when we see on the roads. As reported by their top executives, sports not set foot asphalt to be "absolutely perfect"Unhurriedly to launch a model" unfinished ". At the moment, Alpine confirmed through its official Twitter account that "we wanted to announce our return, but some will say that we never went." And soon we will know if such high expectations are confirmed. We bet yes.

It promises!Alfa Romeo Stelvio, photos of the new SUVAlfa Romeo Stelvio, photos of the new SUVAlfa Romeo Stelvio, photos of the new SUVAlfa Romeo Stelvio, photos of the new SUV

The second step with asphalt highest altitude in the Alps It has been the name He has inspired Alfa Romeo to baptize their first SUV: Stelvio. 2758 meters altitude, 24 kilometers, 75 curves (48 which are fork), 7.6 percent of average gradient. One of the most beautiful and demanding scenarios located on the eastern slopes of the Alps converted legendary path for the fan motor. Do not be the slightest doubt that the Alfa Romeo Stelvio will be an SUV race.

Is in the Hall of Los Angeles where Alfa Romeo has decided in society for the first time the Stelvio. And to prove that this new Alfa will leave its mark, the Italian brand has developed a version for the occasion Quadrifoglio with this SUV would become the most radical creation and sports in its category. Fear not, there are also motors for you and me, Diesel and gasoline future versions to complete a wide range for almost everyone. Because of among those already confirmed motors, Alfa Romeo Stelvio You can also take a 2.0 Turbo the new generation of Alfa engines 280 hp.

Alfa Romeo StelvioHe Alfa Romeo Stelvio measures 4.68 meters from length and 1.65 meters high. It is, therefore, a missile aimed at the best midsize SUV market, read Audi Q5, BMW X3 and X4, Porsche Macan, Mercedes GLC and / or Jaguar F-Pace. With the exception of the latter, all with a similar body length. He Alfa Romeo Engineering Center Modena (Italy) has been commissioned exclusively for its development, which production It will be held at the renovated Cassino plant, with the latest creation of the brand: The Giulia, with whom he will share numerous mechanical elements, including, the engine that makes it currently the most powerful medium SUV segment.

He motor of the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Stelvio inherits the very Giulia Quadrifoglio, and is a propellant 2.9 liter twin turbo V6 with 510 hp and cylinder deactivation system. Although Alfa Romeo does not provide performance data Stelvio Quadrifoglio beyond a top speed of 284 km / h, with such cavalry did not It will be hard to beat, for example, the 4.8 seconds it takes the Porsche Macan Turbo 400 hp to accelerate 0 to 100 km / h. One of the main objectives when developing the Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been getting a low weight 1,845 kilos weighs the Mercedes-AMG 4Matic GLC 43, its "rival" lighter among his fellow man adversaries, a low center of gravity Y optimal mass distribution, for which, the mechanical parts of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio are located in the most centered possible position ... We'll see if achieves ratio 50/50% mass distribution achieved by Giulia between the front and rear axle. Like him, Alfa Romeo Stelvio uses fiber carbon vital elements such as the drive shaft; and aluminum engine, suspension, doors, wheel arches, bonnets or tailgate.

Alfa Chassis Domain Control: the brain of the beast

If the potential radicality, character and tact 2.9 V6 biturbo engine we can attest after having tried in the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio, change that manages much power and torque we are also convinced that it is at the same height, not in vain, it is the same ZF torque converter 8 speeds also from the saloon. Alpha Romeo It promises only 150 milliseconds to change gears in Race mode, the sportiest of those can be selected via the DNA Pro, command that integrates the different driving profiles -Dynamic, Natural and Advanced Efficiency are the rest. This transmission also has a device lock that eliminates converter slip to get the most direct response possible engine.

Alfa Romeo StelvioTechnical solutions of Alfa Romeo Stelvio, highlights, of course, AWD Q4, in the case of the version Quadrifoglio drizzled with the device torque Vectoring employing two clutches in the rear differential to control the independent distribution per wheel in order to maximize agility and traction without electronics prove intrusive. Under normal conditions, the active clutch that distributes the force between the front and rear axle propulsion prioritizes 100 percent, can potentially transmit the front axle 60 percent of the outside of the engine.

Following the chassis, Alfa Stelvio resorts for a double wishbone front suspension and multilink rear axle type that in the integrated version Quadrifoglio electronic adjustable dampers variable. And having made his debut in the Giulia, the brake system also is provided by an electromechanical system, whose aluminum calipers here also oppressing carbocerámicos discs.

At Inside the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, You can find a design, atmosphere and typical of the new era Alfa qualities, who already lives in the new Giulia, where quality and attention to detail have gained a level and where the main character is, of course, the driver. Now you need to see, touch and drive. The story this time, if it continues.
