2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio sets Nurburgring SUV record

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in seven minutes 51.7 seconds, setting a new record for a production SUV. Its time is eight seconds quicker than the previous record holder, the outgoing Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. Even as an SUV, the time set by the Stelvio Quadrifoglio places it between the 2017 Volvo S60 Polestar and the 2015 BMW M4 on the race track's official leaderboard.
