Alfa Romeo reveals ultra-limited run of F1-inspired Quadrifoglio models

Alfa Romeo has revealed a new range of Quadrifoglio models designed to celebrate its return to Formula One.

The Alfa Romeo Racing special editions will wear a similar red and white livery to their motorsport counterparts, with just 10 Giulia and three Stelvios headed to the UK.

The other key upgrade is the addition of a functional aerodynamics package that has been created by Sauber, the outfit behind the Alfa Romeo F1 team. It includes wider side skirts, a front splitter, a more prominent spoiler and side winglets on the front bumper.

Under the bonnet is the same 2.9-litre V6 twin-turbo petrol engine as the standard Quadrifoglio, meaning performance figures of 513bhp and 600Nm of torque. Both models have a top speed of 176mph, while the Giulia can dispatch the 0-60mph sprint in 3.7 seconds and the Stelvio in 3.6 seconds. An Akrapovic exhaust amplifies the sonorous engine note.

As well as the F1-mimicking livery, there’s also exposed carbon-fibre, larger alloy wheels, carbon ceramic brakes and carbon-fibre details on the wing mirrors.

Inside, the motorsport theme continues with Sparco carbon-fibre bucket seats, a combination leather, Alcantara and carbon steering wheel and an exclusive Alfa Romeo Racing badge.

The models are making their public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.
