ALFA ROMEO will debut its much-anticipated Stelvio model in the UK for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

The first SUV in Italian brand's 107-year history will swap the Stelvio Pass for the 1.6 mile Goodwood Hillclimb for its inaugural UK dynamic first drive.

Having first been unveiled at the LA Auto Show, festival-goers will be able to witness the Stelvio's styling, performance and all-wheel drive at close quarters.

It's the second year in a row that Alfa Romeo has unveiled a new model at the Goodwood event, after the marque uncovered the Giulia sports saloon last July.

The range topping Giulia Quadrifoglio, powered by a 510bhp Bi-Turbo V6 engine, will also appear on the Alfa Romeo stand alongside the recently launched 2.0-litre petrol-engined Giulia Veloce.

And the line-up will be completed by the Giulietta and high-performance 4C Spider.

While the launch of Giulia and Stelvio signify the start of a new era for Alfa Romeo, visitors will still be able to experience the company's motorsport heritage.

It means models like the GTAm, 33/3 Le Mans and 155 DTM will be transported over specially from Alfa Romeo's official museum, Museo Storico, and will all take on the Goodwood Hillclimb during the weekend.

And as a treat for Grand Prix fans, the Alfa Romeo Brabham F1 will be on static display in the Martini paddock.
