By the side of the protagonists of the event is Alfa Romeo, the technical partner of "Seeds & Chips". During the days, visitors will be see Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia Veloce, which are examples of how technology can improve the experience of consumers on the table and on the road alike. The SUV of the brand has redefined the rules of its segment ensuring a thrilling driving experience and the best level of comfort and typical versatility of these vehicles, even to the most demanding motorists.
In keeping with Alfa Romeo tradition, Stelvio offers impeccable handling, worthy of a true sports car, resulting from balanced weight distribution, the most direct steering ratio in its class and state-of-the-art suspensions with the exclusive AlfalinkTM technology, not to mention the lavish use of ultra-lightweight, high-tech materials such as carbon fibre and aluminium. What is more, the Stelvio SUV fits the Alfa Romeo Q4 all-wheel drive system, and can be equipped with mechanical self-locking rear differential for the ultimate in road-holdin.
Giulia Veloce stands out for a number of sophisticated style elements, like specific bumpers and glossy black exterior window frames, and quintessentially sporty contents, like a specific rear extractor integrating the twin tailpipe and 19" five-hole alloy rims available as optional equipment. The same sporty character is found inside the passegner compartment and under the bonnet: it comes with a 2.2 Diesel 210 HP or a 2.0 petrol 280 HP engine, both paired with Alfa Romeo Q4 all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission.
