What on earth has ErreErre Fuoriserie done to the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio?
Italian firm rebodies a Giulia Quadrifoglio in full retro-look carbon fibre. Uh oh
“Italy has always been the undisputed protagonist in the world of manufacturing limited edition cars dedicated to the most demanding customers,” says Turin-based firm ErreErre Fuoriserie rather confidently.
“Over the years, the great masters of Italian style have been able to best interpret the style of major brands, leaving an indelible trace of cars that are recognized as works of art.”
This much is certainly true, although we’re unsure whether ErreErre Fuoriserie’s creation will find a place in this particular gallery.
What you’re looking at above is the company’s tribute to the original Alfa Romeo Giulia as it celebrates its 60th birthday in 2022. Based on the modern-day Giulia Quadrifoglio, it swaps out the swoopy lines of arguably the best-looking super saloon on-sale today and replaces them with retro straight lines and a full carbon fibre body. From some angles we’re completely sold on the boxy new look, from others it's far more challenging. We’ll let you make your own minds up.
The engine is the standard 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 making 503bhp with no changes to the suspension setup or the interior, unless you fancy some new leather to match your retro bodywork. You do get those 19-inch telephone dial wheels, though. Lovely.
Slight sticking point could be the price, which is apparently €245,000 (around £208,000) without including the donor Giulia. Ouch.
