Alfa Romeo’s impressive performance pair will also be joined by a new Giulia Ti and 4C on the Geneva stand
Alfa Romeo has outlined its 2018 Geneva motor show line-up, headlined by limited-edition versions of the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio, dubbed NRING. The pair will be joined by a new flagship Giulia Ti trim level and Competizione and Italia packs on the 4C sports car.
The Giulia and Stelvio NRING editions have been designed to celebrate both models’ respective Nürburgring lap records. The changes on both are mostly aesthetic, majoring on new carbonfibre inserts on the roof, mirror caps and front grille, dark-finish badging and standard fitment of black wheels with carbon-ceramic brakes behind.
Both cars are also painted in a bespoke shade of matt paint called Circuito Grey. Inside, standard features include carbonfibre-backed bucket seats, a new carbon-finished gear selector, and carbon steering wheel and trim finish on the dash and doors. Despite the liberal application of the black stuff Alfa isn’t quoting any weight savings. A total of just 108 of each will be built.
Lower down the range, Alfa will also re-introduce the storied Ti badge on the Giulia. Available exclusively on the Veloce model, changes to this new trim level include black 19-inch wheels and red brake calipers, and it is only available in Racing Red. Inside, there’s a black leather interior package including red stitching and carbonfibre inserts, and standard fitment of Alfa’s upgraded infotainment and audio systems. Both the Ti and NRING models are under consideration for the UK, but no official details have been confirmed.
Not to be forgotten, the Italian marque’s 4C Coupe and Spider will also be revealed with Competizione and Italia special editions, both with unique liveries and again limited to 108 units. No mechanical changes have been made aside from the inclusion of an Akrapovic exhaust system with centrally mounted outlets.
