Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio History & Origin
The story of Quadrifoglio begins in 1923, when Ugo Sivocci hand-painted a green four-leaf clover -- a quadrifoglio -- on his Alfa Romeo RL racecar for some extra luck in the Targa Florio race. After he won, Sivocci believed the Quadrifoglio badge was the key to his success, so he continued to paint the symbol on all his future racecars. Tragically, Sivocci died during a fateful run for the Italian Grand Prix, after he did not yet paint the lucky symbol on his racecar. After Sivocci's death and to honor his legacy, one of the logo's diamond's points was removed to become the now-familiar triangle shape. The Quadrifoglio badge now symbolizes a passion for motor racing and stands as a tribute to the legend of Ugo Sivocci.
In today's age, the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio lineup boasts some of the most riveting and heart-racing performance-focused vehicles on the market. From the twin-turbocharged V6 Giulia Quadrifoglio engine to their carbon-fiber interior trim, each Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio model is built to be as aerodynamically efficient as possible and achieve top speeds in a matter of seconds.
