Alfa’s product marketing boss Fabio Milyavakka said in a recent interview with Autocar why there will be no GTA version of the Stelvio SUV.

Milyavakka told the publication that there was a meeting about the production of GTA Stelvio, but the company refused it because it would not “meet customer expectations.” He said that any GTA model should be “the best possible” on the track and that a higher Stelvio center of gravity made this difficult.

Alfa has updated the 2.9-liter V6 Quadrifoglio turbocharged for the Giulia GTA, increasing power from 505 hp Alfa also reduced weight by 100 kg, expanded the rear track by 2.0 inches and updated the suspension with new shock absorbers, springs and bushings.

Alfa plans to release 500 Giulia GTA and GTAm models, but there is little chance that several options will reach the US coast. The company announced that it is “evaluating the possibilities of introducing GTA in other key markets around the world,” including in the United States.
