March 28, 2022,  Windsor, Ontario – Alfa Romeo introduces the limited-edition Giulia Estrema and Stelvio Estrema series. This new offering is the first time Alfa Romeo has created a globally available limited model.

Engineers started with the premium Veloce trim level and added driving dynamics technology from the high performance Quadrifoglio model, including standard Alfa Active Suspension. The advanced suspension technology reads the road and quickly adjusts shock valving to deliver greater handling characteristics at speed while maintaining a comfortable ride.  The control system acts according to the selected mode on the Alfa Romeo DNA performance switch in the centre console. Estrema models benefit from continuous dynamics and weight collaboration with Alfa Romeo’s F1 Team ORLEN to get the most out of Formula 1 know-how.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio include standard active cruise control, Active Blind-spot Assist, Lane Departure Warning, automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning with full stop capability. The Active Assist Plus package is standard on Ti, Veloce, Estrema and Quadrifolgio models and includes:

  • Driver Attention Alert
  • Intelligent Speed Assist
  • Highway Assist System
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Traffic Jam Assist
  • Active Blind-spot Assist with braking
  • Security alarm

The turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic transmission are shared with Giulia and Stelvio models. The Estrema includes the standard Alfa Romeo Q4 all-wheel-drive system on both Stelvio and Giulia. The direct-injection engine delivers best-in-class numbers for a standard powertrain with 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque. That output helps deliver quick acceleration times:

  • Giulia: 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds for AWD
  • Stelvio: 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds for AWD

Additional technology the Estrema model shares with the Quadrifoglio includes a limited-slip rear differential, which distributes torque and traction during acceleration.

The Estrema exterior wears a carbon fibre veneer on the grille and mirror caps. Dark “Estrema” badging hangs on the fenders and rear. The B-pillar and side window trim are covered in gloss black, which blends into the side windows. Alloy wheels (19-inch on Giulia Estrema, 21-inch on Stelvio Estrema) are gloss black. An optional staggered wheel package for the Giulia Estrema adds a wider rear wheel/tire combo for enhanced vehicle dynamics and a unique appearance. Behind the wheels, gloss black coloured brake calipers are branded with Alfa Romeo script in white.

The limited-edition Estrema models are available in four colours:

  • Alfa White
  • Alfa Rosso
  • Misano Blue
  • Vulcano Black

Estrema includes an interior that tops the range for style and sportiness. Standard leather dash, steering wheel, centre armrest, shift lever and upper door panel coverings are laced with red stitching. Carbon fibre accents, similar to the Quadrifoglio trim, cover parts of the dash, doors and centre console. Black leather sport seats hold occupants in place when driving the vehicles to their capability.

Both Stelvio and Giulia also include a dual-pane sunroof that allows more natural light. The interior is finished off with a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and wireless phone charging.
