Each Had A 100 Unit Maximum, And They Are All Sold Out
The first time the four-leaf clover insignia was used was on Ugo Sivocci’s RL at the 1923 Targa Florio. Alfa Romeo debuted the updated Giulia and Stelvio with a 100th Anniversary special edition in mid-April to commemorate the logo’s 100th anniversary. It’s too late to get one as the Italian carmaker is pleased to report that all 100 cars and 100 SUVs, which had a variety of improvements both inside and out, have been purchased.
It goes without saying that the limited-run model was based on the top-of-the-line Quadrifoglio. The automobiles had an option of three paint colours: Rosso Etna, Verde Montreal, and Nero Vulcano, and an Akrapovi exhaust was included as standard equipment. Alfa Romeo installed gold brake calipers to both vehicles, however the SUV received bigger 21-inch wheels while the sporty sedan received 19-inch wheels. The dynamic pair also featured the front grille and side mirror covers made of carbon fiber, as well as the matrix LED headlights that were included with the mid-cycle facelift.
The interiors of the 100th Anniversary versions were decorated with gold stitching and a custom insignia that indicated the car’s unique status. The inside of the vehicle has been modified with several carbon fiber details and a steering wheel covered in leather and Alcantara. The vehicles sport a 12.3-inch completely digital instrument cluster because they are based on the redesigned Giulia and Stelvio.
Alfa Romeo charged $85,160 for the sedan in the US (plus $1,595 for destination and shipping costs), or $3,200 more than the standard Giulia Quadrifoglio. The SUV sold for $92,675, which was a $4,500 premium above the original vehicle. The output remained same in the US at 505 horsepower. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 was tuned to 520 horsepower in China and Europe, though. The Giulia GTA/GTAm had 533 horsepower, but it’s still not the engine’s top specification.
The Giulia and Stelvio have aged elegantly despite the fact that the Giulia was introduced in 2015 and the Stelvio a year later. By 2023 standards, the Quadrifoglio vehicles’ performance is also rather respectable; the sedan needs 3.9 seconds to reach 62 mph (100 km/h), while the SUV needs just 0.1 seconds less. The Giulia’s highest speed is 191 mph (307 km/h), whereas the Stelvio’s is 176 mph (283 km/h).
Alfa Romeo, a company that is a part of the Stellantis conglomerate, has previously declared there won’t be a second generation of these two combustion engine vehicles. The idea is to switch to electric propulsion for the cars later this decade. A compact crossover that was hinted at earlier this month and will be on sale next year underneath the Tonale will be the brand’s first production vehicle to go without an ICE.
