Alfa Romeo’s line up at the 88th Geneva Motor Show next week will be led out by a string of special editions and foremost of this collection will be two new ‘Nürburgring’ special editions: the Stelvio Quadrifoglio "NRING" and Giulia Quadrifoglio "NRING", special series that have been created to celebrate the records scored by Alfa Romeo on the legendary German race track.
The Stelvio holds the record around the Nürburgring in its segment, with a lap time of 7 minutes and 51.7 seconds; it is the fastest SUV, equipped with the 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine delivering 510 hp and 600 Nm of torque, powering a top speed of 283 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
Meanwhile, the Giulia Quadrifoglio is the record-holder for standard production four-door sedans, with a lap time of 7 minutes and 32 seconds, achieved thanks to its top speed of 307 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.
Just 108 of each model will be made, denoting the age of the 108-year-old carmaker, and they will be reserved for collectors and the most loyal Alfa Romeo customers.
The new limited editions include unique content, such as a numbered badge in the carbon fibre dashboard insert, and the unique ‘Circuito Grey’ paint finish, which is exclusive for this limited edition.
Equipment to come as standard on the "NRING" special series includes carbon-ceramic brakes, Sparco racing seats with red stitching and carbon shell structure, Mopar automatic transmission knob with carbon insert, leather and Alcantara steering wheel, also with carbon inserts.
The front badge and the rearview mirror caps are also made of carbon fibre as are the side skirt inserts.
Tinted windows, active cruise control, Harman Kardon premium audio package, and the Alfa Connect 3D Nav infotainment system with 8.8'' screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and DAB all come as standard on the NRING editions of both models.
The Giulia, however, will premiere a new bare carbon roof while both special series have mats with a red logo developed by Mopar.
