Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Spider Rendering Is So Wrong, But Cute

OK, so Alfa Romeo built an SUV. Given the Stelvio's bewildering appearance, we have to admit we've already fallen for the high-riding Italian. But a Spider version - what's wrong with the world?

Nothing, really. This is the internet and we'd all better get used to being treated with such renderings, as this is not the first, nor is it the last time when, in less than 24 hours from a machine's debut, it gets a life-transforming pixel treatment.

Coming from pixel remasterer X-Tomi, the image we have here sees the Stelvio getting a double change. Things obviously start with the canvas roof, but the crossover also loses its rear doors, in a move that should counterbalance the lost styling points brought by the cloth top being folded at the back of the car.

The Quadrifoglio badges seen here guarantee that fact that, even with the added weight of the open-top version, such a crossover would be seriously quick. By the way, expect the 505 hp Stelvio Q to become the fastest SUV around the Nurburgring. Following the more or less accurate Porsche Panamera Turbo vs. Alfa Romeo Giulia Q Nordschleife record battle, the Stelvio should grab the title from the sub-8m Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.

And while the Italian automaker won't bring such a model to the market anytime soon, the sheer existence of models such as the Range Rover Evoque Convertible or the Nisan Murano CrossCabriolet means that at least a number of car buyers out there would be ready to spend their money on such an automotive gender-defying contraption.

Since we're discussing Alfa Romeo's market intentions. here's to hoping the numerous delays that stood in the way of the Giulia's dealership landing won't return for the Stelvio.

To be honest, we were left lusting for another announcement following the Stelvio's debut on the Los Angeles Motor Show floor, one that has to do with the pricing and the market arrival of the spicy crossover.
