Alfa Romeo Officially Announces Estrema Limited Edition For Global Market!

Both Giulia & Stelvio Get New Trim Based On Veloce With Performance Goodies From Quadrifoglio...

Earlier this month, we broke the news about a new limited edition series of Alfa Romeo models coming to market for the 2023 model year. The new Estrema (or Extreme) special edition models are based on the popular Veloce lineup and add some elements from the brand’s high-performance Quadrifoglio models. It marks the first time Alfa Romeo has created a global limited edition model.

Alfa Romeo engineers started with the premium Veloce trim for both the Giulia and Stelvio. They 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 center 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 (LDW), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), and Forward-Collision Warning (FCW) with full-stop capability. An optional Active Assist Plus package 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

Powered by the turbocharged 2.0-liter GME-T4 four-cylinder engine and 8-speed 8HP50 automatic transmission are shared between the Giulia and Stelvio models. The Estrema adds Alfa Romeo’s Q4 all-wheel-drive (AWD) system standard on the Stelvio and optional on the 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 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 5.5 seconds for RWD (5.1 seconds for AWD)
  • Stelvio – 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 5.5 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-fiber veneer on the grille and mirror caps. Dark “Estrema” badging hangs on the fenders and rear. The B-pillar and side window trim is covered in Gloss Black, which blends into the side windows. Aluminum 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 colored brake calipers are branded with Alfa Romeo script in white.

The new special edition model will be available in four different colors, Alfa Rosso (Red), Alfa White, Vulcano Black Metallic, and Misano Blue Metallic.

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