Alfa Romeo has prepared a new limited edition of the Giulia and Stelvio models. She drew inspiration from history.
The edition called “6C Villa d’Este” looks back at the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Coupé from the 1940s. It is a car that won the “Referendum Grand Prix” at the Concorso d’Eleganza di Villa d’Este in 1949, which is decided by the audience.
In the case of the Giulia sedan, the new version will be available with a 2.2-liter, 190-horsepower diesel turbocharged engine or a 200-horsepower 2.0 Turbo petrol turbocharged unit, both in combination with rear-wheel drive.
The Stelvio is offered with a 2.2-liter diesel with an output of 210 hp or a petrol-supercharged two-liter with an output of 280 hp, in combination with all-wheel drive.
The special edition is mainly characterized by a specific varnish. The three-layer red shade is named Etna and resembles the color of the original model, which served as inspiration. The paint is complemented by chrome window frames and five-hole light-alloy wheels measuring 21 inches for Stelvia and 19 inches for Giulia.
Inside, we find electrically adjustable and heated seats made of premium beige leather with “6C Villa d’Este” embroidery on the front headrests. The embroidery is also on the dashboard.
Standard equipment includes aluminum paddles for automatic transmission, rear parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, wireless phone charging and automatic luggage compartment opening.
We do not know the availability and prices yet.
The Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d’Este was one of the carmaker’s latest models with a ladder frame. Only 36 pieces were produced, each of which was literally tailored to the customer.
