The New Giulia and New Stelvio Quadrifoglio, symbol of Italian sportiness, can be ordered in France from the brand’s distributors from this Wednesday, June 28,
Supreme expression of technical refinement and technology: 2.9 V6 engine increased to 520 hp. and mechanical limited-slip differential for a unique driving experience. Cutting-edge technology thanks to the new adaptive matrix headlights with light-emitting diodes (LED) and the new digital instrument cluster characterized by its historic “cannochial” design. Carbon dominates inside, in a new 3D finish
Unique and always focused on the driver, the driving dynamics remain the benchmark in their respective categories, thanks to perfect mass balance, unrivaled agility and lightness in the category and extremely direct steering
Alfa Romeo continues its “photographic story” inspired by its legendary drivers. After Ugo Sivocci and his exploits at the Targa Florio in Palermo in 1923, it is the turn of Tazio Nuvolari, the “Flying Mantouan”, legendary pilot of the 20th century. Alfa Romeo presents the new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio through an evocative photo shoot, reinterpreting in images the now legendary anecdote of Achille Varzi’s “overtaking at night with headlights off” by Tazio Nuvolari.
From Wednesday June 28, from Alfa Romeo distributors, it will be possible to order the New Giulia and New Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Two emblematic models which carry within them the century-old quest for technical excellence applied to racing and production cars. Iconic identity, technical perfection and technology come together to place them at the top of their respective segments. Best in Class in terms of handling and power-to-weight ratio, they offer a unique, direct and stimulating driving experience, just like an Alfa Romeo.
Even more technology, more power with 520 hp and optimal technical refinement thanks to the mechanical self-locking differential.
Giulia and Stelvio “Quadrifoglio” are the result of a century-old quest for technical excellence applied to racing and production cars. The 2.9 V6 engine has been increased to 520 hp. and associated with a mechanical self-locking differential. This is an important technical device which, thanks to a specific tuning derived from the design of the Giulia GTA, contributes to improving the behavior and traction of the car, optimizing the transfer of torque and increasing stability, agility and speed in corners.
Driving dynamics, among the best in its class, are the result of remarkable lightness, made possible by the use of ultra-light materials such as aluminum for the engine and carbon fiber for the driveshaft , the hood, the spoiler and the skirts. On the Giulia, active aerodynamics are ensured by the carbon front splitter: when activated, it controls the quality of the air flow passing under the vehicle, thus increasing stability and performance. Finally, the Akrapovič exhaust system gives the exhaust an unmistakable sound.
A strong personality on the outside as well. Giulia and Stelvio refresh their appearance, creating a strong bond with the rest of the range: “3+3” headlights, new Full-LED Matrix adaptive lights that offer an anti-glare and adaptive beam, for optimal lighting in all conditions, guaranteeing energy savings, a significant improvement in safety and a reduction in eye fatigue.
The Giulia’s wheels feature 19″ 5-hole burnished alloy sports rims and 21″ rims for the Stelvio, with sports red brake calipers. Six body colors are available: Etna Red, Montreal Green, Misano Blue, Vesuvio Gray, Vulcano Black and Alfa Red.
The same sporty temperament is evident in the cabin, where we find the exclusive combination of black leather and Alcantara (optional) and the new 3D real carbon finish of the dashboard, central tunnel and door panels. door. The steering wheel is covered in leather and Alcantara with black stitching and carbon fiber inserts.
Whether it’s their looks, the technology or the connectivity on board, all the features of the two models serve a driving experience specific to Alfa-Romeo. This is evidenced by the new dashboard, which takes up the historic “cannocchiale” design and introduces a fully digital 12.3″ TFT screen from which it is possible to access all the information relating to the vehicle and the parameters of the autonomous driving. In addition to the three configurations available across the entire Alfa Romeo range (Evolved, Relax and Heritage), the exclusive “Race” configuration appears on the Quadrifoglio versions.
The “Race” configuration brings together on the central screen the essential information that every driver wants to know: rev counter, speedometer and gear shift indicator for manual driving. The configuration can be personalized by adding additional information to the side gauges, particularly on the car’s current performance.
Both the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio are equipped with an intuitive and smooth human-machine interface (HMI) putting all functions at your fingertips. As for the infotainment system, it offers content, functionalities and the “Alfa Connect Services” platform, which offers a wide range of services useful for the safety and comfort of occupants.
The New Giulia and New Stelvio Quadrifoglio are inspired by the exploits of Tazio Nuvolari.
From April 1923, when driver Ugo Sivocci drove the RL adorned with the emblematic Quadrifoglio Verde to victory in the Targa Florio, this emblem became the symbol of Alfa Romeo’s DNA and identified the most successful cars of the brand. Both those used on competition circuits and the most powerful and exclusive road cars.
This is the case of the New Giulia and the new Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which project the brand into a future that draws inspiration from the aesthetic codes of the past, improving them and putting them at the service of sportiness and performance. Requirements that have always characterized the triumphant Alfa Romeos in the most difficult and prestigious races, led by legendary drivers, like Tazio Nuvolari.
And it is precisely the atmosphere of this period and the exploits of the “flying Mantouan” which are captured in the shooting that Alfa Romeo is devoting today to its new models, ambassadors of “timeless beauty”, staged in the region of Mantua and Lake Garda. Moving stages of the “1000 Miglia” of 1930, during which Nuvolari first made his name at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Spider Zagato, with an average speed of more than 100km/h, extraordinary for the time. He started very strongly, but after his great rival Varzi, also at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo, he achieved the best time during the first control in Parma. In Bologna, Maserati climbs to first place, then, in a series of fierce overtakes and counter-overtakes, the fight is reduced to the Alfa Romeos, the young Achille Varzi trying to take the lead until the very end.
The race ends with an unexpected epilogue, which becomes legendary. Tazio Nuvolari, already ahead of everyone in the timing, decides, to cross the finish line first, to overtake Varzi at night, with all lights off.
Legend or reality, this outcome perfectly reflects the competitive and sporting fiber of a driver who accompanied Alfa Romeo throughout an epic journey marked by success, embodying the timeless values of a brand which continues to make its fans dream in the whole world.
