Alfa Romeo to Debut Giulia, Stelvio Nurburgring Editions

Multiple special editions are headed to Geneva

Alfa Romeo claims the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV can lap the Nürburgring quicker than all other production vehicles in their respective segments. To celebrate, the automaker is debuting special edition Giulia and Stelvio models at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Nürburgring Editions (or "NRING" editions) feature an exclusive gray exterior and a numbered badge on the carbon fiber dashboard insert. Also included are carbon-ceramic brakes, Mopar transmission knob with carbon insert, Sparco racing seats with red stitching and carbon shell structure, and a steering wheel with leather, Alcantara, and carbon inserts. A Harman Kardon audio system, 8.8-inch screen with navigation, tinted windows, active cruise control, and carbon-fiber accents on the mirror caps are some of the other features. The special Giulias receive a new bare carbon roof. The special editions are based on the Quadrifoglio models, which pack a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 making 505 hp.

Back in 2016, Alfa Romeo recorded a time of 7:32 around the 'Ring in the Giulia Quadrifoglio. And about a year later, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio allegedly beat out the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S to become the quickest SUV around the track with a time of 7:51.7. Alfa Romeo will make 108 copies of each Nürburgring model, celebrating the brand's 108-year history. An FCA representative wouldn't say whether the special editions would make it to North America.

Alfa Romeo will also introduce a Ti version of the Giulia Veloce. In addition to a contrasting black roof, the model also features a Quadrifoglio-inspired spoiler, side skirts with carbon insert, and 19-inch alloy wheels with red brake calipers. Inside, you'll find a leather dashboard with carbon accents, leather and Alcantara seats with black stitching, and carbon accenting on the backlit kick plates, gear knob insert, and mirror caps. This model also receives the 8.8-inch screen with navigation as well as Harman Kardon sound system, tinted windows, and active cruise control. Another special edition Giulia, the Giulia Super, features a beige leather interior, real grey oak wood inserts, and 18-inch alloy wheels with black brake calipers. While the Veloce Ti comes with a 280-hp turbocharged four-cylinder, the Super on display receives the supercharged 200-hp four-cylinder not offered in the U.S.

Lest we forget about the 4C, Alfa Romeo has a few special edition versions of this car, too. The "Competizione" includes a special gray livery, body-color front bumper with air vent, red brake calipers, and carbon details on the roof, rear spoiler, mirror caps, and side air vents. Inside you'll find red stitched seats, a racing steering wheel, a numbered badge, and "Competizione" plaque on the dash. Meanwhile, the 4C Spider Italia has yellow brake calipers and yellow stitching inside the cabin. Other features include an Alpine Hi-Fi system, Italia dashboard plaque, and Spider Italia sticker on the side of the car. Like the Nürburgring Edition Stelvio and Giulia, Alfa Romeo will make 108 copies of the 4C Competizione and Italia Spider.

Finally, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Super with Performance Pack shows off a new leather dashboard and door panels, Alfa Active Suspension, limited-slip differential, and self-locking rear mechanical differential. Look for aluminum inserts, aluminum pedals, sport steering wheel, and red brake calipers. Another model on display dons beige leather seats and 20-inch Mopar wheels with black calipers.
