Alfa Romeo steals the show with four special editions
So, McLaren’s got their Senna special-edition ready for the Geneva Motor Show, and the next manufacturer to follow suit is Alfa Romeo, with four special-edition cars.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia ‘Nurburgring Editions’ are joined by the 4C Competizione and 4C Italia models to complete Alfa’s four-car offering at Geneva.
Let’s start with the Nurburgring Editions, which are based on the Quadrifoglio Verde versions of the Giulia and the Stelvio, which earned the title of fastest production four-door saloon and fastest production SUV around the German track respectively.
In order to differentiate the special-edition models from the regular cars, they sport an exclusive Circuito Grey finish, along with carbon details on the grille and door mirrors. Ceramic brakes come standard and are hidden by black wheels.
The interiors receive a set of carbon-shelled Sparco sports seats with contrasting red-stitching, carbon inserts scattered around the cabin, a Harmon Kardon sound system, an Alcantara sports steering wheel and a limited-edition numbered plaque.
Alfa is also offering new options and handling packs for normal Stelvio models, such as the option of a leather-trimmed dashboard and door panels and a Performance Pack, which includes adaptive suspension, a locking rear diff and aluminium paddle shifters.
The Alfa 4C, on the other hand, will be offered in two new editions. The 4C Competizione is based on the 4C Coupe and sports a stunning Vesuvio Grey finish, a carbon roof and a carbon spoiler. It also comes with an Akrapovic exhaust, red brake callipers and grey wheels. Not much will change inside the cabin, aside from red stitching and a new microfibre trim.
The 4C Italia is based on the convertible version of the sports car and sports a Misano Blue finish, with contrasting yellow callipers. The Italia also gets an Akrapovic exhaust and new decals behind the doors. The interior gets an Alpine premium audio system and yellow stitching.
