Alfa Romeo Bids Adieu To Its Quadrifoglio Models With A Final Special Edition Model

It looks like the iconic Quadrifoglio is the latest victim to electrification

Well, it looks like another iconic nameplate in the automotive world is leaving us again. This time, Italian automaker Alfa Romeo is about to pull the plug on the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models in the United States. Before that happens, the two models are getting a special edition sendoff with a rather interesting red carbon weave interior.

The limited-run models carry the “Super Sport” name to mark Alfa Romeo’s first win at the 1928 Mille Miglia with the 6C 1500 Super Sport. For the first time since the four-leaf clover debuted 101 years ago, the iconic logo has a black triangle rather than the usual white background. 

Moreover, go for the sports sedan and you can opt for a carbon fibre roof. Alfa Romeo fits the Giulia Quadrifoglio with 19-inch wheels whereas its SUV counterpart rides on larger 21-inch alloys. Both body styles come with black brake callipers and an Akrapovic exhaust system with carbon fibre finishers. The mirrors are also in carbon, much like the Giulia’s front splitter.

The real highlight is inside where Alfa Romeo has applied red carbon fibre on the dashboard, centre console, and door cards. The Italian brand mentions it has a 3D effect and compliments the red stitching on the seats. I personally find the colour a bit gaudy but there are definitely many who will love this design.

On top of that, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Super Sport starts at USD88,365 (about RM412,306) in the US with destination and the Stelvio Super Sport costs USD95,965 (roughly RM447,767). Only 72 examples of the Giulia Super Sport will make it to the US while 52 units of the Stelvio Super Sport will be sold in America.

Although Alfa Romeo is retiring the Quadrifoglio from its US lineup with the last cars to be produced in June, it’s only goodbye for now. In a post on LinkedIn, Head of North American Operations Larry Dominique said, “This is not the end of the story. I look forward to presenting the next chapter in the four-leaf clover’s journey.”

What he meant by that is Alfa Romeo will launch fully electric Quadrifoglio models later this decade. The next Giulia confirmed for a 2026 release will use the same STLA Large underpinnings as the latest Dodge Charger. According to CEO Jean Philippe Imparato, the car also looks very eye-catching.
