Alfa Romeo brought its limited edition NRing Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models to the 2019 NY Auto Show, announcing that only 110 units will be made available to U.S. and Canadian buyers.
The good news is that compared to regular QV models, the NRing Edition adds bespoke details such as the Circuito Gray matte paint finish, red calipers, dark alloys and mirror caps, plus a carbon fiber front grille. The bad news? Both models are seriously expensive.
In the U.S., the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio NRing is priced from $91,285, while the Stelvio QV NRing costs upwards of $97,485, including the $1,595 destination fee. To add a little perspective, a Mercedes-AMG C 63 S costs $74,600 and has the same amount of horsepower as the Giulia QV NRing. Limited edition or not, that’s a pretty big difference.
Still, if you’re sold on the Alfas, you should probably know that the Giulia NRing also gets an exposed carbon fiber roof, while the Stelvio earns a dual-pane sunroof and carbon fiber side sills.
Inside, both models get a serialized number inlay on the dash, a two-tone red/black leather interior with red stitching, carbon fiber on the Alcantara steering wheel and shifter bezel, a Harman Kardon audio system and some extra kit, like the optional carbon-shell Sparco racing seats or the carbon-ceramic brakes with Brembo calipers.
As for performance, that comes courtesy of a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission – for both models. Power and torque is 505 HP (510 PS) and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm), while straight line acceleration sees the Giulia QV dash to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, while the Stelvio QV needs 0.1 seconds less. The former does however feature a higher top speed, 190 mph (307 km/h) vs the Stelvio’s 175 mph (283 km/h).
