Alfa Romeos still break down. It happened to us and it’s happened to others. So what? Maybe it happened again. OK, apparently it has happened again, this time with what appears to be a pre-production Stelvio Quadrifoglio crossover, right in the middle of Sunset Boulevard.
Thanks to a couple of tipsters, Chris and Wes (a name you may recognize!), we’ve got plenty of images and details about the poor test driver stuck in the middle of the street with a most-likely broken Alfa.
According to our tipsters, the 510-horsepower Alfa was mostly under a cover but had to keep the back end out with its indicators flashing. Apparently a police officer showed up and started writing a ticket for blocking traffic, one of the tipsters guessed.
The hotness of this crossover seems to prove that it’s a pre-production model of the upcoming Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Jalopnik reached out to Alfa about the incident and will update when more information is available.
Alfa fans would argue that breaking down in the middle of L.A. traffic is just part of the charm. It keeps you on edge, and makes ownership exciting. Sure! At least they look good!
