Back in 2017, Alfa Romeo stunned us when it announced it will be returning to Formula 1 and as a manner of celebration, the Italian carmaker has is giving its Quadrifoglio Stelvio and Giulia cars the Alfa Romeo Racing limited edition treatment.
Set to be seen at the Geneva Motor Show next week, both cars wear an exterior finish resembling the F1 livery used by the race cars of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.
They will feature a similar Trofeo White and Competizione Red two-tone paint finish as the C38 Formula 1 car plus a few styling cues to differentiate them from the standard models.
Things such as Sparco bucket seats with red stitching and a carbon shell, a Mopar-branded transmission knob, and a combination of leather, Alcantara and carbon fibre for the steering wheel will also set them apart.
They will both have an “Alfa Romeo Racing” badge on the inside.
The Stelvio will get 20 inch alloys, 19 inches for the Giulia plus red callipers for the carbon ceramic brakes.
We believe they should sound right, so they both feature Akrapovic exhaust systems.
Sadly, Alfa Romeo decided to leave the engines as they are. The 2.9 litre V6 engine soldiers on with 375 kW and 600 Nm.
More information on these two models will be available next week.
