Continuing a legacy of automotive brilliance, Alfa Romeo has unveiled two exclusive masterpieces, the Quadrifoglio Super Sport special editions, paying homage to the marque’s illustrious racing history and pushing the boundaries of automotive innovation.

Limited to a mere 450 examples globally, these special editions, shared between the Giulia and Stelvio models, represent the epitome of exclusivity and automotive excellence. Australia, fortunate enough to secure a handful of these gems, will witness the arrival of the Giulia Quadrifoglio Super Sport (QV SS) sedan and the Stelvio QV SS SUV, each promising unparalleled driving dynamics and unparalleled luxury.

The Giulia QV SS sedan, with a global production cap of 275 units, will grace Australian showrooms in limited numbers, priced at $174,200. This price tag, a $20,500 premium over the standard Giulia QV, reflects the exclusivity and craftsmanship imbued within this automotive masterpiece. Similarly, the Stelvio QV SS SUV, with just three units earmarked for Australian shores out of a global production run of 175, will command a price of $183,200, offering discerning enthusiasts a taste of automotive excellence like never before.

Scheduled for arrival before the end of 2024, the QV SS duo is poised to captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike, marking a poignant moment in Alfa Romeo’s illustrious history. Serving as a final ode to petrol-powered Alfa Romeos, these special editions pave the way for the brand’s electrifying future, set to debut next year.

Inspired by Alfa Romeo’s triumphant victory at the 1928 Mille Miglia, these special editions exude heritage and racing pedigree. Adorned with unique visual treatments by Alfa Romeo Centro Stile, the QV SS models stand as a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation.

Both the Giulia and Stelvio QV SS are offered in striking Etna Red and Vulcano Black, with the Giulia also available in Alfa White, ensuring a commanding presence on the road. The extensive use of carbon-fibre, including on the Giulia’s roof, not only enhances performance but also adds a touch of exclusivity to these special editions.

A hallmark of distinction, the iconic four-leaf clover adorns a black background for the first time, symbolizing the exclusivity and performance prowess of these special editions. Complemented by 19-inch alloy wheels for the Giulia and 21-inch for the Stelvio, as well as high-performance brakes, the QV SS duo promises unrivaled performance and precision.

Stepping into the cabin, enthusiasts are greeted by a symphony of luxury and performance. Red carbon-fibre highlights adorn the doors, centre console, and dash, while the leather sports seats feature intricate ‘Super Sport’ embroidery in red and black. The steering wheels, crafted with leather and Alcantara trim, offer a tactile connection to the road, further enhancing the driving experience.

This powerhouse, shared with the standard QV and the previously sold-out 100th-anniversary special editions, ensures that each drive is an exhilarating journey into the heart of automotive excellence.

In essence, the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Super Sport special editions represent more than just automotive excellence; they embody the spirit of racing glory and the pursuit of perfection. With limited availability and unrivaled performance, these masterpieces are destined to become coveted treasures for enthusiasts and collectors alike, serving as a timeless testament to Alfa Romeo’s enduring legacy.
