Alfa Romeo Giulia And Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRing Edition Heading Down Under

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRing will be launched in Australia in the third quarter of the year in a limited run.

Pricing kicks off at AUD $182,900 (USD $125,027) for the sedan and AUD $189,900 (USD $129,812) for the SUV. Both add exclusive equipment and are accompanied by an Authenticity Certification from the FCA Heritage department, usually reserved for historic cars.

Both the Giulia and Stelvio special editions share some of the gear between them, including the Circuito Grey livery, which is exclusive to this spec, carbon fiber V grille insert and side mirror caps, and carbon ceramic brakes with red calipers. There are also Sparco bucket seats with red stitching and carbon shell structure, black and red leather with Alcantara inserts and leather and an Alcantara steering wheel with carbon fiber insert.

Furthermore, the Giulia Quadrifoglio NRing adds exposed carbon fiber roof (a first for this car), Dark Miron ‘Giulia’ badge and 19-inch alloy wheels in the same shade, whereas the Stelvio brings Dark Miron ‘Stelvio’ and ‘Q4’ tailgated badges, 20-inch alloy wheels and a panoramic sunroof.

In both cases, the engine compartment houses a 2.9-liter, twin-turbo V6, developed by Ferrari. It puts out 503 HP and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, rocketing the Stelvio to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds, and up to 283 km/h (176 mph). The Giulia is 0.1 seconds slower to 100 km/h (62 mph), but has a higher top speed of 307 km/h (191 mph).

    Both good looking and great to drive. Just a better quality interior, a proven reliability record and a few more CUV’s (in their lineup) away from strong sales, in my opinion. Alfa should come out with an emphatic statement showing it stands behind its products with something like a 6 or 7 year bumper to bumper warranty, just like Hyundai had the guts to do when people were skeptical of their build quality. Then, they should set about refreshing these a bit on the outside and a ton on the inside as everything looks ok but, feels quite flimsy. Even the upmarket stereo option didn’t sound that great & certainly not befitting a higher end car. The sport seats looked great but were really stiff and not that nice to sit on.
    I love these two, their easily the best to drive in their class.. Would love to see Alfa find great success. I won’t buy them though, until they lease better and/or address the items mentioned above.

      hyundai’s warranty is a perfect marketing scheme…if you read the fineprint, it looks half as good as stated…

        hmm…good to note! I will look into the fine print next time! Well its had a good effect for them. I definitely have more friends looking at Hyundais these days.
        Alfa should follow suit, prove their cars are reliable and serviceable at regular prices and nothing that will cause financial ruin.

    Are those prices real?

      Premium cars (in fact all cars) are more expensive outside of the USA.

      • europeon

        Americans just don’t realize how fortunate they are with such low prices both on cars and gasoline.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Prices are out of hand. I love the Giulia but that is not its price. Less than half of it maybe.

  • Ray Andrews

    My 2019 Giulia has been perfect for the 5 months I have owned it. It handles spectacularly and it’s acceleration is instantaneous. I have owned many cars including Porsche and famously reliable Japanese brands, and I enjoy the Alfa more than any. Wherever I drive it, I get long looks and comments about its beauty.
