Alfa Romeo Giulia And Stelvio QV Racing Editions Reflect Bond With F1

After a quick preview early last week, Alfa Romeo is ready to show us more of the new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio ‘Alfa Romeo Racing’ limited edition models, built with some help from Sauber Engineering.

The Formula 1 outfit provided assistance with designing the exclusive carbon fiber Aero kit worn by the two vehicles, and then provided two F1 drivers to pose next to them in 2007 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen and 2019 rookie Antonio Giovinazzi.

The changes aren’t just cosmetic, says the Italian automaker. They actually improve the aerodynamic performance of the two family cars by increasing downforce and enhancing their overall dynamic qualities.

Other mods include the carbon fiber exterior details (including the roofs), Sparco leather and Alcantara sports seats with carbon shell, oversized brakes with carbon-ceramic discs, and custom Akrapovic titanium exhaust systems. Altogether, both cars weigh about 28 kg (61 lbs) less than their standard counterparts. Oh and the paint scheme? That’s a tribute to the new Alfa Romeo Racing C38 F1 car.

A little extra get-up-and-go

Not only are these two models lighter than before, but they also have more muscle underneath the hood, where the output figure now stands at 520 PS (512 HP), an increase of about 10 horses for their twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engines.

Alfa says that buyers will be invited to live a complete and dedicated customer experience, as long as they first place an order for either one of the ten special edition Giulia QVs or one of the ten Stelvio QV SUVs.

    More power, less weight, more downforce on a car that was already best-in-class. What could go wrong?

      Reliability

      • exeptor

        Current Alfa cars seem to be on the same level of reliability as their competitors.

        If you count as reliability issues stiff suspension and unintuitive infotainment (!) as CR does.

    They should offer that livery as an option for the normal QV as well.

    A bit offtopic, but I find it really annoying that, for almost three years now, Pirelli keeps on teasing those color edition tires and the list of cars they fit on, yet there is no way of buying them yet. I’ve tried to buy a set last year, contacted Pirelli’s marketing department and they don’t even have a release date yet.
