Alfa Romeo is embracing its sporting heritage with the new editions of Giulia and Stelvio Estrema, bridging the gap between mainstream variants and their high-performance Quadrifoglio releases.
Giulia Estrema and Stelvio Estrema are based on the Veloce version, but also benefit from the features of the premium Quadrifoglio model. Among the changes are LSD rear differential and active suspension, which "reads the road and quickly adjusts to provide better steering characteristics, while maintaining a comfortable ride."
The sporty nature of these models is obvious from the outside thanks to the carbon fiber elements on the front grill and the mirror covers. Elsewhere, there are details in glossy black, dark "Estrema" markings and brake calipers in glossy black and with a white Alfa Romeo inscription.
The wheels are also in bright black, 19-inch with Giulia Estremo and 21-inch with Stelvio Estremo.
The following exterior colors are available to customers: Vulcano Black, Alfa Rosso, Alfa White and Misano Blue.
The interior features carbon fiber details reminiscent of those found in the Quadrifoglio variants. They are joined by black leather sports seats, a leather front panel and red contrasting stitching.
The equipment includes a wireless charger for smartphones, Harman Kardon audio system with 14 speakers, as well as a range of driver assistance systems (including active cruise control, active blind spot assistance, lane departure warning, collision warning and automatic emergency braking ).
The Estrema edition is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol turbo engine with 209 kW / 280hp and 414 Nm, with Giulia Estrema accelerating from 0-60 mph (0-96 km / h) in just 5.1 seconds when equipped with optional propulsion on all points. The Stelvio Estrema comes standard with all-wheel drive and can reach 60 mph (96 km / h) in 5.5 seconds.
Sales start in April, and prices in Italy start at 67,600 euros for Giulia Estrema and 75,400 euros for Stelvio Estrema.
