Want an even rarer Giulia or Stelvio Quadrifoglio? These ‘Super Sport’ variants are for you

Created to celebrate Alfa’s history in the Mille Miglia, we're sure these should have been painted red

Published: 15 May 2024

Alfa Romeo is rolling out limited-edition versions of its Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models which commemorate the brand’s first-ever Mille Miglia victory in 1928. They’ll wear an all-new moniker called ‘Super Sport’, and 275 Giulias and 175 Stelvios will be created.

But before you head to the comment section with your sharpened pitchfork and strongest vocabulary, since these appear to look like nothing more than blacked-out versions with fancy badging, there are some changes worth noting to potentially reverse your opinion. Although yes, we agree they should have been painted red.

First up for the new Super Sports is extra carbon bits spread across the ‘V’ section of the scudetto and the rearview mirrors, while the iconic Teledial alloys are offered as standard and sit ahead of 'darkened' brake calipers. You’ll also spot the new ‘3+3’ lamp clusters, which work alongside full-LED matrix lights to… light the road ahead. 

The cabins of both Super Sport models also gain a few new touches, including red carbon fibre along the centre console, dashboard and door cards. The front headrests will also wear their corresponding model number to prove that you absolutely do own a limited edition Alfa Romeo, while the steering wheel has been reupholstered in Alcantara and carbon. See, you’re starting to get on board, aren’t you?

Since these changes are purely cosmetic, the pair will continue to nudge just past the 500bhp barrier using Alfa’s 2.9-litre biturbo V6. The Akrapovic exhausts also remain, so they’ll still make all the right noises when you want them to.

Pricing for the Giulia Super Sport has been set at £82,815, while the Stelvio will set you back £91,835. Better sign up quickly if you want one.
