Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 This year Alfa Romeo celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Quadrifoglio becoming part of Alfa Romeo lore. In 1923, team racing driver and perennial runner-up Ugo Sivocci painted a four-leaf clover inside a white square on his RL ”Corsa” single-seater developed to win the Targa Florio. Sivocci won the race, giving Alfa Romeo its first international victory. A few months later, Sivocci went to Monza to test the P1 for the European Grand Prix. He hadn’t painted a four-leaf clover on the #17 P1 he was driving, and he died during practice. True, correlation is not causation, but it’s hard to find a more superstitious bunch than racing team drivers. The Italians retired the #17 from racing vehicles, and from 1924 every Alfa Romeo had a Quadrifoglio on the body inside a triangle instead of a square. The missing point represented the loss of Sivocci Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4.

Since then, the green leaves have identified Alfas among the sea of ​​other red Italian single-seaters from competitors such as Ferrari and Maserati. Of course, sometimes the cars didn’t need such help, the lines on models like the TZ and P33 being iconic enough to forego further distinction.

The Milanese added Quadrifoglio versions to production cars in the 1960s, but did not make it part of official production names until the 1980s. After that, the brand expanded to two clovers, a Quadrifoglio Oro (gold) denoting luxury versions, a Quadrifoglio Verde for sporty variants. Then came even more use as the single letter ”Q” for features like the Q2 limited-slip differential and Q4 all-wheel drive Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4.
