The leading tuner of Alfa Romeos, Novitec, has added some spice to the sporty Giulietta, giving owners several power package options, a styling kit and an assortment of wheels to choose from. Power packages are available for the 1.4L TB 16V engine, 1.8L turbocharged engine, 1.6L JTD 16V engine and the 2.0L JTD 16V engine. The most powerful 1.8L turbocharged engine gets an increase of 26-hp, bringing its peak to an impressive 261-hp figure. To match the horsepower increases, Novitec also offers stainless steel rear mufflers with dual- or quad-tipped designs, giving the Giulietta a sportier tone to match its new performance.

Wheels that fit the Giulietta from Novitec range from 18- to 20-inch in sizing with the demo car featuring a “king-sized” Novitec N10 in a 20-inch fitment available in a silver or matte black finish. Novitec recommends a 20×8.5-inch set paired with 235/50/20 Pirelli P Zero rubber. Giving the Giulietta the sporty stance it needs to go with the massive wheel and tire upgrade, Novitec offers a lowering spring package that gives the Giulietta a 1.37-inch drop. Those seeking for even more adjustability can opt for their coilovers that also give the ability to adjust dampening while lowering the car 1.37-inch to 2.95-inch.

Along with all that, a sporty body kit is available giving the front bumper a subtle front lip for around $360, a pair of side skirts for $340 and a rear apron for $240. The rear apron comes in different versions with cutouts depending on if you have a dual- or quad-tipped exhaust system.

With Alfa Romeo set to return to North America soon, look for Novitec to become a household name among tuners.
