Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio “Alfa Romeo Racing” limited editions make their UK debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is seeing the Alfa Romeo Racing limited editions making their UK debut. Created to celebrate the brand’s return to Formula 1 under the “Alfa Romeo Racing” name, the UK will receive an initial allocation of just 10 Giulia Quadrifoglio and three Stelvio Quadrifoglio “Alfa Romeo Racing” limited editions. Orders are now open with prices starting from £89,500 OTR for the Giulia and £96,500 for the Stelvio.
Under the bonnet of these exclusive racing inspired models is the 2.9-litre V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine. Tuned to deliver 520 hp and 600 Nm of torque, it gives the Giulia Quadrifoglio a top speed of 191 mph and acceleration from zero to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds, while a top speed of 176 mph and a sprint from zero to 62 mph of 3.8 seconds is achieved by the Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
A Sauber engineered Aero Enhancement package adds wider side skirts, unique front splitter, more prominent spoiler and side winglets on the front wings, all of which are functional to provide additional aerodynamic performance. An Akrapovič titanium exhaust gives a unique soundtrack and in combination with fine tuning from Alfa Romeo’s powerplant engineers contributes to the 10 hp power increase over the standard Quadrifoglio models.
While retaining all the technical features of the Quadrifoglio models, this special series mimics the livery of the Alfa Romeo Racing F1 cars with Trofeo White and Competizione Red two-tone design. The Giulia features exposed carbon fibre roof, dark alloy wheels (19-inch on the Giulia and 20-inch on the Stelvio), carbon ceramic brakes with red brake callipers and carbon fibre details on the wing mirrors, “V” insert in the front trefoil, side skirt inserts and kick plates (on the Giulia).
Inside the racing inspiration continues with Sparco racing seats with red stitching and carbon shell structure, complemented by red seatbelts, Mopar automatic gear selector with carbon insert and leather and Alcantara steering wheel with carbon inserts.
Both “Alfa Romeo Racing” models are also complete with tinted windows, Adaptive Cruise Control, Harman Kardon premium audio package and the Alfa Connect 3D Nav by Mopar infotainment system with 8.8-inch screen, with DAB radio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Each car will also be fitted with an exclusive ‘Alfa Romeo Racing’ badge to commemorate the 10 Alfa Romeo victories in Formula 1 in 1950 – 1951.
The “Alfa Romeo Racing” limited edition celebrates Alfa Romeo’s ever-deepening participation and involvement in the Formula 1 world championship, in partnership with Sauber. This year the team are racing under the new official name of “Alfa Romeo Racing”, so these models proudly assert the racing history of Alfa Romeo that has seen a string of victories and top-three finishes in many international championships, including F1.
