A really nice gift delivered to me today by a friend who's friends with the Stelvio designer. Signed sketches with congratulations!
I must get them framed.

It's always a shame when reality doesn't match the imagination but thus it ever was... Stelvio could have been something special but for me it's too plain and could easily be mistaken for many other SUV's on the market , its not different enough. My wife is partial to SUVs and was excited about an Alfa tractor but bought an Evoque instead common as muck but but better styling. Her words not mine but for once I find myself agreeing with her

Did you drive a Stelvio?
It's not equivalent to the Ewok. It's way better. Styling is a matter of taste but the LandRover is a Raleigh Chopper SUV on a Mondeo floorpan and no exotic materials or engineering.

No I haven't driven a Stelvio. I was referring to your original post and the designs for an SUV. Most women who buy these cars aren't interested in the driving experience just what they look like hence why Evoque will sell more than the Stelvio. Don't get me wrong, I wish it was less subjective. Having lived in Australia the only Utility vehicle you would trust your life in the Bush with is a Toyota Land Cruiser with extra fuel tanks ,winch, CB radio and pneumatic pump non of which will be in a Stelvio or Evoque.

I remember when the Ewoque was launched and an aspirational neighbour really wanted one. She seemed to like the fact it was a Range Rover rather than a mere Land Rover. My wife was saying a couple of weeks about neighbours around the next road she'd passed on her way to the gym. They had recently upgraded to a new RR Evoque and were describing the fact it didn't work , to an RAC man. Style over substance.

Anyway , I thought it was nice to be given an original sketch of the Alfa I recently bought, by the designer.

@cue2 I've got electronic copies of the lots of the sketches, but no originals... you lucky thing.

As for the post about the Stelvio looking boring... The Stelvio Qf seems to get plenty of looks and thumbs up from passers by!

I'm quite shocked if the first sketch was done on one of those A4 Pukka Pads from whsmith, the second one looks nice.

Why?
I suppose the fact that the guy who drew it drives a Fiat Barchetta is a shock too?!

not sure what he drives has got anything to do with it, I find it surprising that a sketch on such a model would be done on such crap paper, actually I find it hilarious

Stelvio sketch

Sketches from early on in the design process arenít going to be polished works of art. The fact itís drawn on pad paper only makes it feel more special, I think.

Great things to have, those drawings. Not something Iíd have come across otherwise, helps me appreciate the design a little more.

It's not a sketch made during the design process. It's a sketch made for @cue2 .

Carmelo's a top bloke - he gave me a sketch too, not of a Stelvio though :P

I now need to drive my Stelvio to the Stelvio Pass. Last time I went (in a Vauxhall!) we got to the top, having driven up from the swiss side (gravel roads, less switchbacks) and it was closed. Landslide part way down, so had to go back and drive round the mountain on route to Verona. It was July, 35C at the bottom, a chilly 12C at the top with Snow still on the ground. Still stunning scenery. Passed many a mad fool on a push bike....

SE11 is where you go with a Vauxhall.
And bicycles have progressed since you just pushed them!
