Alfa Romeo releases limited-edition range-toppers of Giulia and Stelvio with more power and bespoke design features.

New variants of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio mark a century of the sporting badge, bringing a slight uplift in power and unique features.

Capped at 100 units worldwide per car, the limited editions, badged Quadrifoglio 100 Anniversario, have their twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 engines uprated from 370kW to 377kW and gain a mechanical limited-slip differential.

The first ever LSD fitted to a QV model has been specifically tuned to somewhat mirror the driving behaviour of the also-limited-edition 392kW Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, as well as increase stability and agility and therefore offer better cornering speeds.

They “are the result of one-hundred years of research into technical excellence”, Alfa Romeo said.

Bar this, the cars mechanically remain the same as the standard QVs (which continue to be sold). Both send power through an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Giulia to the rear wheels and Stelvio to all four. The use of aluminium in the engine and carbonfibre for the drive shaft, bonnet, spoiler and skirts keep the cars as light as they’re able: the Giulia at 1524kg and the Stelvio at 1830kg.

Cosmetically, the pair get a number of distinctive, bespoke features. These include commemorative QV badges with gold accents, designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, and new gold brake callipers. The front grille and door-mirror caps are clad in carbonfiibre and the alloy wheels are unique (19-inch on the Giulia and 21-inch on the Stelvio).

Inside, the celebratory theme continues, Alcantara being finished with gold stitching throughout and celebratory ‘100’ badges added to the dashboard. Carbonfibre can also be seen across the interior. Features such as the 12.3-inch infotainment screen and a digital instrument panel remain.

Neither an allocation nor a price for Australia has been confirmed. The cars will be some of the last ICE-powered QVs that Alfa Romeo releases, with an EV bound for the middle of the decade. the Italian brand will offer a solely electric range by 2027.

When the next-generation Giulia QV arrives, it will have around 750kW and a range of 700km, Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato has confirmed. It will also evolve from its conventional saloon shape to cover multiple segments.
