Alfa Romeo Brings Giulia And Stelvio Nurburgring Editions, Plus 4C Specials To Geneva

Alfa Romeo is celebrating the impressive performance of the Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio by announcing plans to unveil Nürburgring Editions at the Geneva Motor Show.

Designed to pay tribute to their Nürburgring lap records, the special editions have an exclusive Circuito Grey exterior with carbon fiber accents on the grille and mirror caps. The models have also been equipped with black wheels that are backed up by a carbon-ceramic braking system.

Moving into the cabin, drivers will find carbon fiber shelled Sparco racing seats with red contrast stitching. Designers also installed an individually numbered plaque and a leather / Alcantara steering wheel with carbon fiber inserts. Other highlights include a Harman Kardon premium audio system and an 8.8-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Production will be limited to 108 units each and both models will be powered by a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine that produces 510 PS (375 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the Stelvio Quadrifoglio to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 283 km/h (175 mph). Likewise, the Giulia Quadrifoglio hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and tops out at 307 km/h (190 mph).

Alfa Romeo will also be showcasing two Stelvios which come equipped with new options. The first model has a leather-wrapped dashboard and leather door panels while the other has the new Performance Pack. It includes an Alfa Active Suspension, a locking rear differential and aluminum paddle shifters.

Lastly, Alfa Romeo will introduce the new 4C Competizione and Italia special editions. The Competizione is based on the 4C Coupe and it has a matte Vesuvio Grey exterior with a carbon fiber roof and rear spoiler. The model also has red brake calipers, an Akrapovič exhaust and 18- / 19-inch wheels with a dark finish.

Interior changes are limited but include leather seats with microfiber inserts and red contrast stitching. Other special touches include a leather / microfiber steering wheel, a numbered badge below the handbrake and an aluminum “Competizione” badge on the dashboard.

The 4C Italia goes in a different direction as it is based on the 4C Spider and has a Misano Blue paint job as well as yellow brake calipers. The model also has an Akrapovič exhaust and an exclusive “Spider Italia” sticker behind the doors.

The interior largely echoes the 4C Competizione but drivers will find yellow contrast stitching, an “Italia” plaque and an Alpine premium audio system with a subwoofer.

Production will be limited to 108 units a piece and both have a turbocharged 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine developing 240 PS (176 kW). This enables the cars to rocket from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of up to 258 km/h (160 mph).

    Wow, that color combo is exactly what I would want…

    All great cars but too expensive. You know when you’re kicked out of a country because your product is unreliable and you don’t honor warranty, if/when allowed to return you should come with better pricing and NO quality issues. I think their cars should be at least 10% cheaper than their competition. This would make a better buy.


    Nice color combo but I kind of hoped for more performance, less weight, and better handling. If you’re going to make a Nurburgring edition why not just go all out? Oh, and better reliability is nice but I’m asking for too much. Neither is happening and I know it.

    • LeStori

      Would be stupid to lower prices. It would be better to offer a longer warrany.

      When the biggest seller in the USA is a pickup we are not talking about a nation that could have coped with highly stressed Alfa Romeos of the past that required proper servicing to be reliable. Billy-Bob would have destroyed an Alfa Romeo with his 5 thumb hands.

    • Agree, at least do some performance upgrades, now it’s just a badge and color combos.

      Qué carajo, pensé que esta marca de automóviles de Milán, íbamos a mostrar otro auto nuevo a diferencia de los ya conocidos Stelvio y Giulia, esto es porque están sujetos a ser una marca de autos pobres y a medida que avanzan irán a la quiebra ante la falta de más modelos, entiendo que para este año 2018 veremos otro modelo nuevo pero no sabemos en qué mes, y teniendo en cuenta que el mapa de ruta de esta marca culmina en el mes de junio de 2020, anunciado por el mismo Marchionne en oradores anteriores.
      Esa pobreza se vive hoy en esta marca decadente que no tiene autos nuevos como nuevas características, lo contrario de BMW, que siempre muestra autos nuevos todos los años.

    • Bugatti Andrea Ettore

      Alfa Romeo will not show more models of cars and BMW if they show new models in each Auto Show, why Alfa Romeo does not want to show more new models of cars? This is what is the final mark of Alfa, dead. “

      • LWOAP

        Alfa Romeo doesn’t have any new cars to show that’s why.

        • Bugatti Andrea Ettore

          That means that plan of product’s Future Alfa Romeo is uncertain, it is possible that the next new model of Alfa after Stelvio and Giulia, we would have to wait a couple of years until Alfa Romeo pays its debt of 3 billion?, to see your next new model of car ?, That means that it is possible that Alfa leave us and die if they do not take more new cars, Americans will not like a brand that has no wealth in more cars of its range, they like more variety of cars and not to anchor themselves to the three cars that they own, (4C, Giulia and Stelvio). those of FCA and more of Alfa seem mediocre to me.

  • Dariush

    Gotta say both cars(Stelvio and Giulia) are growing on me so much, especially the SUv… i still consider the 4C, instead, pretty terrible to look at.

    • Bash

      The stelvio is an amazing vehicle, I love it, but on price tag and the fact that it’s cabin is basically consists of plastics all around, I would pick the Makan instead.

      • Thomas

        Why would you choose a (old) Audi Q5 FWD based with a cramped interior where only an astronault would feel confortable ?

        • Bash

          You got to think about everything as a whole package, price, looks, running fees and maintenance charges, also although the exterior design of the stelvio is more engaging to me but that enterior in the Makan is way much better and well appointed in comparison, and based on many reviews and comparisons I read, I thing the Makan would make a sorta better daily car. Plus I sat in both cars and yes the Makan is in fact kinda smaller on the inside, but you would still feel comfortable.

          • Thomas

            I sat in both cars and I can agree that the Macan has better materials and better fit and finish. However the Stelvio has a more elegant and ergonomic design and feel airy inside not cramped. I drove the Macan and it is way better than the Cayenne, but it is still feels like a Golf GTI on stilts. From the reviews the Stelvio seems to have better steering, handiling and overall dinamics.

            The price is on Stelvio´s side.

            On exterior design the Macan is head and shoulders above the Cayenne with very nice surfaces and nice volumes but the Stelvio has an advantage to be a RWD based so the proportions, specially in the side profile, are better.

        • Vassilis

          The Macan is so much more than what you make it seem. Although it’s based on the same platform as the Q5, everything else is night and day better.

      • Dariush

        The macan looks good (detailswise is superior to the Stelvio) but overall proportions and stance, the Stelvio it’s just on another level…dunno about price I know I wouldn’t know which to pick

  • toni796

    cool color combo on giulia and somehow i missed when it was introduced that it tops out at 307kph,thats just crazy

  • Honda NSX-R

    Looks great

  • When I heard 4C Competizione, I was like “Finally updated 4C!” and then it turns out to be Autoshow limited edition special… boooooo

  • Bugatti Andrea Ettore

    What the fuck, I thought that this Milan car brand, we were going to show another new car unlike the already known Stelvio and Giulia, this is because they are subject to being a poor car brand and, as they move forward, they will go to bankruptcy due to the lack of more models, I understand that for this year 2018 we will see another new model but we do not know in what month, and bearing in mind that the route map of this brand culminates in the month of June 2020, was announced by the same Marchionne in previous speakers
    That poverty is lived today in this decadent brand that does not have new cars as new features, the opposite of BMW, which always shows new cars every year


    i want one alfa giulia qv NOW !!!!!!!

  • Vassilis

    Nope, Rosso Competizione is still the best colour.

  • Joseph Osso

    Am I missing something or do I see “veloce” on the red Giulia? is that a new trim or a new model?
