The Quadrifoglio versions of both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV and Giuila sedan will now have Carbon Editions. Only 130 examples—combined—will be built.
Do you love Alfa Romeo style, especially the high-output Qualrifoglio versions, but feel they look a bit, I don’t know, tame? Good news! The Italian brand will now sell both Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Carbon Editions. An appearance package that dresses up both the interior and exterior to add just that little bit of extra flair.
These are subtle changes, mind you. Outside you get carbon-fiber V scudetto grille and mirror caps. You’ll also see gold colored brake calipers and black badging as well as unique front and rear fascias. Moreover, Alfa Romeo will install an exposed carbon-fiber hood on the Giulia, if you wish.
Inside, Alfa Romeo adorns both models with red leather sports seats and carbon fiber trim. That certainly adds a healthy dose of color to a traditionally black interior.
But, largely, both the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglios carry on as before. Power continues to come from a turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 that belts out 505 horsepower and 443 lb.-ft of torque before channeling through an eight-speed transmission and heading to all-four-wheels.
For the Giulia, the wheels are 19-in, while the Stelvio rolls on 21s. Regardless of wheel size, however, Alfa-Romeo includes adaptive shock absorbers to happily marry the ride to the driving conditions.
Alfa will only sell Carbon Editions in North America and limited availability to just 130 examples across both models. As a result, it’s not a surprise that they aren’t cheap. Getting in a Giulia will cost at least $86,470 and going for the Stelvio will run $93,870 (both prices include the $1595 destination charge).
But for the money, you get something rare, stylish, cool, and quite quick as well.
