The Alfa Romeo brand of Stellantis in Auburn Hills has introduced limited-edition 100th Anniversary versions of its Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio vehicles, recognizing a century since the Quadrifoglio made its racing debut.

Limited to 100 units each globally for the Giulia and Stelvio, the anniversary models are the result of a century of technical excellence, on and off the racetrack, according to the automaker. The models include celebratory badges, unique design features, and exclusive gold finishes to mark the 100th anniversary.

Among the exclusive content featured on the vehicles are burnished five-hole 19-inch sports alloy wheels for the Giulia, 21-inch for the Stelvio, and house-exclusive gold brake calipers.

The same hue distinguishes the emblem celebrating 100 years of the Quadrifoglio, positioned on the mudguard of both cars. A carbon-fiber grille and mirror caps start a theme that continues through the interior with a 3-D finish in real carbon fiber that covers the instrument panel, central tunnel, and door panels.

A combination of black leather and Alcantara is enhanced by exclusive gold stitching on the dashboard and an embroidered “100” next to the gold Quadrifoglio logo. The steering wheel is upholstered in leather and Alcantara with black stitching and carbon-fiber inserts.

Ordering for the 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio 100th Anniversary models (reported to start at $88,000) will open in spring 2023 with availability in the third quarter.

A symbol of Italian noble sportiness, the legendary Quadrifoglio always has been synonymous with the brand’s highest-performing creations. This not only holds true for its racing models, but for its most powerful and exclusive road vehicles as well, the company states.

Reinterpreted for modern day, Centro Stile Alfa Romeo has projected the historical Quadrifoglio logo into the brand’s future while preserving its solidity and elegance.

The Quadrifoglio has been part of Alfa Romeo’s racing and industrial history since the very beginning. It started in 1923 with one of the oldest automobile races in the world, the Targa Florio, the prestigious event that at the beginning of the 20th century transformed Sicily once a year into a famous European “salon.”

Intense and challenging, the race was one of the most important milestones of its time for drivers and could thrust car models and brands into the market. Ugo Sivocci, an accomplished driver in his time, brought home the win with luck on his side, which would make the choice of the Quadrifoglio (a four-leaf clover) more meaningful.

With this victory, Alfa Romeo made its mark among car manufacturers, linking the symbol of the Quadrifoglio to the brand’s vehicles and setting the stage for an extensive series of achievements by numerous drivers. From the first Grand Prix championship in 1925, and moving on to the Mille Miglia, the Targa Florio, and 24-hour Le Mans, the brand dominated the international racing scene.

The symbol soon began to stand out on exclusive road vehicles as well. The glazed Quadrifoglio badge would make its first appearance on a road vehicle with the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce, and launch a tradition that continues today.

These are the brand’s most powerful versions and are designed for car enthusiasts who have a passion for driving.
