Alfa Romeo rolls out limited-edition Giulia and Stelvio Estrema models

DETROIT: Alfa Romeo has introduced the limited-edition Giulia Estrema and Stelvio Estrema series. This new offering is the first time Alfa Romeo has created a globally available limited model.

Orders are now open with availability in the third quarter of 2022.

The Giulia Estrema comes in RWD (US$55,090) and AWD (US$57,090), while the Stelvio Estrema comes only in AWD (US$58,950).

Engineers started with the premium Veloce trim level and added driving dynamics technology from the high-performance Quadrifoglio model, including standard Alfa Active Suspension.

The advanced suspension technology reads the road and quickly adjusts shock valving to deliver greater handling characteristics at speed while maintaining a comfortable ride.

The control system acts according to the selected mode on the Alfa Romeo DNA performance switch in the centre console. Estrema models benefit from continuous dynamics and weight collaboration with Alfa Romeo’s F1 Team ORLEN to get the most out of Formula 1 know-how.


The Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio include standard active cruise control, Active Blind-spot Assist, Lane Departure Warning, automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning with full stop capability. An optional Active Assist Plus package includes: Driver Attention Alert; Intelligent Speed Assist; Highway Assist System; Lane Keep Assist; Traffic Sign Recognition; Traffic Jam Assist; Active Blind-spot Assist with braking; and Security alarm

The turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic transmission are shared with Giulia and Stelvio models.

The Estrema adds Alfa Romeo’s Q4 all-wheel-drive system standard on the Stelvio and optional on the Giulia. The direct-injection engine delivers best-in-class numbers for a standard powertrain with 280hp and 415Nm of torque.

The RWD Giulia accelerates from 0-100kph in 5.5 seconds, while the AWD variant does it in 5.1 seconds. The AWD Stelvio completes the same sprint in 5.5s, same as the RWD Giulia.

Additional technology the Estrema model shares with the Quadrifoglio includes a limited-slip rear differential, which distributes torque and traction during acceleration.


The Estrema exterior wears a carbon fibre veneer on the grille and mirror caps.

Dark “Estrema” badging hangs on the fenders and rear.

The B-pillar and side window trim are covered in gloss black, which blends into the side windows.

Alloy wheels (19-inch on Giulia Estrema, 21-inch on Stelvio Estrema) are gloss black.

An optional staggered wheel package for the Giulia Estrema adds a wider rear wheel/tyre combo for enhanced vehicle dynamics and a unique appearance. Behind the wheels, gloss black colored brake calipers are branded with Alfa Romeo script in white.


The limited-edition Estrema models are available in four colors: Alfa White, Alfa Rosso, Misano Blue and Vulcano Black.

Estrema includes an interior that tops the range for style and sportiness.

Standard leather dash, steering wheel, centre armrest, shift lever and upper door panel coverings are laced with red stitching. Carbon fibre accents, similar to the Quadrifoglio trim, cover parts of the dash, doors and centre console.

Black leather sport seats hold occupants in place when driving the vehicle to its capability.

Both Stelvio and Giulia also include a dual-pane sunroof that allows more natural light.

The interior is finished off with a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and wireless phone charging.
