Performance has always been at the heart of Alfa Romeo's century-long reputation, and this will continue as it enters the final phase of its petrol-powered era. The Italian luxury manufacturer recently revealed the new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio Super Sport models. This limited-edition special series honours Alfa Romeo's inaugural victory in the 6C 1500 Super Sport at the 1928 Mille Miglia. The company will produce 450 units of both special edition models for international sales. Out of these, 275 units will be reserved for the Giulia Quadrifoglio Super Sport and the remaining 175 units for the Stelvio Quadrifoglio Super Sport. Notably, the end of the high-power Quadrifoglio versions of the Stelvio SUV and Giulia sedan portends something remarkable as the company begins its electric transition.

Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Super Sport Models: Design

The Super Sport versions have received significant exterior alterations. They include, for instance, a new Quadrifoglio emblem that, for the first time in more than a century, has a black background rather than the customary white. The renowned Scudetto and outer rearview mirrors feature a 'V' made of carbon fibre. The Stelvio has an optional dual-pane sunroof, but the Giulia comes standard with an exposed carbon fibre roof. In addition, the famous Alfa Romeo Teledial alloy wheels—19 inches for the Giulia and 21 inches for the Stelvio—and black-painted brake callipers are included with both Super Sport versions.

The Stelvio is available for purchase in two paint jobs: tri-coat Etna Red or metallic Vulcano Black, while the Giulia also comes in an extra Alfa White colour option. The fresh '3+3' design headlamps use adaptive full-LED matrix lighting with anti-glare.

Not much has changed in terms of mechanics. The 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine from the base versions continues to power the Super Sport variants, producing 513bhp of maximum power and 601Nm of peak torque.

The special edition Giulia also sports a mechanical limited-slip differential, which is taken from the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA. Alfa's Chassis Domain Control system, a four-mode Alfa DNA Pro selector, and a carbon-fibre driveshaft are features that both versions enjoy. Interestingly, Giulia's dynamic carbon-fibre front splitter allows it to reach a top speed of 307km/h.
