The Limited Editions Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Are a Swansong for Petrol Engines

Alfa Romeo says Until we meet again to switch to petrol power as it starts to send that off Julia limousine and Stelvio Pass SUVs with limited special editions – and they’re coming to Australia.

The new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Super Sport models celebrate the brand’s victory in the Mille Miglia road race in 1928, won by an Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 Super Sport.

Only 250 copies of the Giulia Quadrifoglio Super Sport and 175 Stelvio Quadrifoglio Super Sports will be offered worldwide.

For Australia, only six editions of the sedan and three of the SUV are destined for local showrooms.

The price for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Super Sport is $174,200 before on-road costswith a $20,500 premium over the base Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio Super Sport is now starting $183,200 before on-road costsor $21,000 more than the SUV on which it is based.

The changes compared to the standard Quadrifoglio models are subtle: the Super Sport editions get black badging, a four-leaf clover on a black background on the front wheel arches, grille trim and carbon fiber mirror caps.

The Giulia also benefits from a carbon fiber roof.

Behind the dark five-hole “telephone dial” wheels – 19 inches on the Giulia and 21 inches on the Stelvio – there are black Brembo brake calipers that underline the dark theme of the cars.

The sedan and SUV have a choice of two exterior paint finishes: three-layer Etna Red and metallic Vulcano Black. The Giulia is also available in Alfa White.

Inside, the Quadrifoglio Super Sport Edition features black leather upholstery contrasted with red carbon fiber trim on the dashboard, center console and door panels, while the headrests feature red embroidered Super Sport logos and unique build numbers.

As with the standard Quadrifoglio models, there is a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8.8-inch infotainment screen.

There is no extra power for the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Super Sport, which continue to produce 375kW and 600Nm of power from a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine.

The Giulia sends all its power to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the Stevlio has all-wheel drive.

After receiving mid-life updates last year, the next generations of the Stelvio and Giulia are expected to launch in 2025 and 2026 respectively, both as electric cars.

Alfa Romeo has already confirmed that it plans to launch an all-electric offering by 2027.
