A year ago, I lived with the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio for a week and fell in love with it quicker than I did my first Hinge date.

It was a sucker punch in the most adoring and sensual way possible. The Giulia's Italian spirit and charisma left me reeling for more and scrambling for words. So it's safe to say that when I found out there was an SUV of the same bloodline on the way, I was speechless.

A year later, after a brief love affair on the Australian Grand Prix circuit back in March, I was introduced to the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio for 7 beautiful days.

From here on, our commentary on cars will include a brief introduction such as this, followed by some initial and closing reactions in a short video, the first of which we've had a crack at below. Enjoy, and flick us a message if you've got any feedback!
