Alfa Romeo is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Quadrifoglio moniker with a limited run of high performance Giulia and Stelvio models for 2024.
Just 100 examples of both the special edition sedan and SUV will be made with each boasting updated looks, additional technology and a small bump in power.
You’ll immediately notice both cars now feature a set of updated ‘3+3’ LED Adaptive Matrix headlights which were first shown on the new Giulia and Stelvio Veloce models late last year.
Distinct changes have also been made to the tail lights on each model, with the Giulia receiving smoked lenses and the Stelvio being given clear units.
Exclusive gold-coloured brake calipers have also been installed which sit behind dark five-hole 19-inch lightweight alloys on the Giulia and 21-inch units on the Stelvio.
Found on the fenders of each car is another gold touch, that being the four-leaf Quadrifoglio badge with ‘1923-2023’ displayed below to commemorate the centenary.
Customers will get a choice of three colours on whichever model they choose including Rosso Etna red, Verde Montreal green and Nero Vulcano black.
Inside, there’s a new 7.0-inch digital instrument panel which replaces the analogue unit of old alongside a 12.3-inch central infotainment touchscreen which displays key vehicle information, autonomous driving technologies and driver assistance features.
The driver’s display can also be altered to one’s liking with a choice of four unique displays including ‘Evolved’, ‘Relax’ and ‘Heritage’ alongside a newly added ‘Race’ setting. The latter shows fundamental information for driving at speed like a tachometer, speedometer, and a shift light.
Exclusive interior appointments include the combination of black Alcantara and leather, golden stitching, a stitched number ‘100’ on the dashboard and the addition of 3D effect carbon-fibre trim throughout.
Under the bonnet of the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio sits an uprated twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 which now boasts a power output of 383kW, up from the older model’s 375kW figure. Torque stays the same at 600Nm.
There’s also a mechanical limited slip differential which adopts tuning from the GTA and is said to provide better traction, optimised torque transfer, as well as increased stability, agility and cornering speeds.
Both the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio 100th Anniversario models will go on sale in Europe later this year but there’s no word on their availability in New Zealand.
Updated versions of the standard models are expected to arrive on our shores later this year.
