Alfa Romeo has revealed limited-edition Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio 100th anniversary models, which pay homage to the brand’s racing legacy with a host of styling additions… and a minor power bump.
The special release commemorates 100 years since the Quadrifoglio badge made its 1923 racing debut at the Sicilian Targa Florio endurance race, where Ugo Sivocci won the race in an Alfa Romeo adorned with the four-leaf clover.
Under the bonnet of both models is a twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 engine that has received a power boost of 7kW to a total output of 383kW, although this increase will only be available in the European, UK, and Chinese markets.
Both models will run on unique five-hole sports alloy wheels, measuring 19 inches on the Giulia and 21 inches on the Stelvio.
Gold is found throughout the cabin in contrast stitching on the dashboard and an embroidered ‘100’ next to a gold Quadrifoglio logo, while exclusive gold brake callipers provide an exterior accent.
A golden Quadrifoglio emblem can be found on the front fender of both cars.
Carbon fibre features on the grille and mirror caps, and inside the cabin covering the instrument panel, central tunnel and door panels.
The rest of the cabin is black leather and Alcantara, including the upholstered steering wheel which also features carbon-fibre inserts.
The rear-wheel drive Giulia and all-wheel drive Stelvio are both fitted with an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox and a mechanical limited-slip differential that can be found in the Giulia GTA Veloce edition.
Available colourways for the limited edition include the Verde Montreal green used in the promotional images, as well as Rosso Etna red and Nero Vulcano black.
The Giulia and Stelvio will be limited to only 100 units each globally. We have reached out to Alfa Romeo for confirmation on Australian allocation.
Orders for the anniversary models will open in this quarter and deliveries will begin in Q3.
The last update to the Quadrifoglio offering was in the 2021 model year when both the Giulia and Stelvio received improvements to the driving environment and extra safety features.
Since Alfa Romeo has committed to offering a solely electric range by 2027, these limited edition Quadrifoglio models may be some of the last V6 models the Italian brand will release.
The next standard Giulia and Stelvio models will likely be electric, and the Tonale SUV will be the brand’s first plug-in hybrid before the first all-electric model is set to join the lineup in 2024.
