Giulia And Stelvio QV NRing Edition Are How You Spend Nearly $100k On An Alfa

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).

    Pure fiat trash

      you are prejudiced and a liar

      • Ed Ward

        Okay, if it’s not pure fiat trash, it’s certainly alfa trash and that’s even worse.

          Giulia and Stelvio models already have some years in the market and they are proving that you are completly wrong. They are good, reliable and fun to drive. They just need better plastics and infotainment, and i’m sure that they will take care of that on a future facelift.

          • Ed Ward

            Alfa has always been garbage and so far no one in their right mind is purchasing them. Why would anyone pass over a Lexus, Mercedes, bmw, audi or even Genesis for a piece of junk from fiatalfa?

        • Greg Snyder

          Ed, come-on, man! Where does an automotive peasant like you, who drives a Jap/Korean Econobox or a low-end domestic, get off commenting about real foreign performance cars he only sees in magazine’s or on UTUBE?

          But ain’t democracy grand? Only in our land of the free can a minion in a minivan, wackingly carry-on about 3.5s 0 to 60, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglios and 2018 COTY Giullias being trash.

          Sorry, Ed, but in today’s Glengarry Glen Ross world, you can’t drink the coffee and you won’t win the steak knives.

            Who on the planet is going to spend 100,000 dollars on a alfalfa? They’re not selling at all and that’s because better more accomplished competitors are whats hot including the newcomers like the genesis g70. Yes, alfa romeo represents trash.

    Too expensive for what it is? I think we all know it is. Still relatively gorgeous and highly desirable were money not a concern? I think so.

    Unfortunately they dropped the manual!

    Apart the Quadrifoglio version, Alfa Giulia is mechanically the best affordable italian car ever. 50-50% weight distribution, rear traction, great suspension system ahead and behind, best steering, far better than BMW and Mercedes. Unfortunately, the sales suffer because of the bad marketing and the unuseful trunk. Today a sedan makes sense only if the trunk opens completely, rear window included.
