Giulia, Stelvio Alfa Romeo Racing Edition Arrive In Geneva
6 March 2019 - Motor1
These two Quadrifoglio models share the spotlight with the 2019 Giulietta and Stelvio Ti.
Mum's the word in regards to Alfa Romeo's big debut at the next week Geneva Motor Show as the Italian company still isn't ready to spill the beans about what it has in tow at the 89th edition of the annual event held in Switzerland. The press release attached at the end only contains the following phrase: "more important news for the future will also be revealed."
For now, we can at least take comfort from knowing the other Alfa Romeo models that will be in Geneva beginning March 5. Celebrating the company's return to Formula 1, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and Giulia Quadrifoglio are receiving the Alfa Romeo Racing limited edition treatment with an exterior finish mimicking the F1 livery used by the race cars of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.
The two top-tier Quadrifoglio models will be wearing a similar Trofeo White and Competizione Red two-tone paint finish as the C38 Formula 1 car, along with a few new styling tweaks to further separate them from the regular versions. These include the Sparco body-hugging seats with red stitching and a carbon shell, a Mopar-branded transmission knob, and a combination of leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber for the steering wheel. The Giulia and Stelvio will also come bundled with a bespoke "Alfa Romeo Racing" badge on the inside.
To spice things up, the Giulia boasts an exposed carbon fiber roof and rides on burnished alloy wheels measuring 19 inches (20 inches for the Stelvio) paired with red calipers for the carbon ceramic brakes. The dynamic duo also gets an assortment of carbon fiber exterior accents and an Akrapovic exhaust system.
There aren't any engine upgrades, so the Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Alfa Romeo Racing editions will soldier on with the same twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 developing 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-meters) of torque.
The two Alfa Romeo Racing editions will share the spotlight at the Geneva Motor Show with the 2019 Giulietta in Veloce and Executive specifications and the Stelvio Ti, both pictured below.
