Alfa Romeo Killed The Quadrifoglio Duo With A Whelming Special Edition

Alfa Romeo has announced it will stop taking orders for both the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio in the US (though the pair carry on in the EU). To celebrate the death of the sporty brand’s only two truly sporty models, a limited run of Super Sport special editions will be made.

Regardless of the flavor of Quadrifoglio, the special edition will be offered in Alfa’s excellent Rosso Etna red or the black (Nero Vulcano) seen here. Giulia models can also be ordered in white (Bianco Alfa). These will also be available with a carbon fiber roof. The pair will come with other visual distinctions as well, like 19-inch (Giulia) or 21-inch (Stelvio) wheels, black calipers, carbon mirror caps, and a carbon-fiber tipped Akrapovic exhaust.

Inside, the two will have red carbon fiber on the dash, center console, and door cards. The limited production figure (275 for the Giulia and 175 for the Stelvio) can be found embossed onto the headrests in place of the Alfa crest. Interestingly, though these signify the end of Quadrifoglio production Stateside, the 450 cars will be sold globally, and just 72 and 52 Giulia and Stelvio Quad models will come to the US, respectively. Pricing is set at $88,365 MSRP for the Giulia Super Sport and $95,965 for the Stelvio Super Sport. Given this is the likely end of serious, gas-powered performance models for Alfa in the US, we’d have expected more of a send-off than a few carbon-clad special editions. Yet Alfa Romeo never even bothered to bring the manual Giulia stateside either. Fans of the brand will have to wait for future electrified models to fill the fast Alfa-shaped hole in their hearts now.
