⧫︎ ⧫︎ ⧫︎

Starting price is about $41.010 USD

Alfa Romeo has just revealed new limited editions of its Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV, dubbed the '6C Villa d'Este'. They pay tribute to the iconic 1949 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d'Este, a former winner of the Concorso d'Eleganza di Villa d'Este.

Both cars are wearing a three-layer Etna red paintwork, which is also a reference to the 1949 original. It’s a deeper red than what we’re used to seeing on the Giulia and Stelvio normally, although it’s not that far removed from the Rosso Competizione tri-coat you can currently spec your modern-day Alfa Romeo with.

Other visual highlights include the Stelvio’s 21-inch alloy wheels and the Giulia’s 18-inch wheels, as well as chrome-plated side window frames.

Meanwhile, both vehicles get ‘6C Villa d’Este’ embroidered emblems on the front headrests and the dashboard, plus electrically adjustable and heated seats with beige leather, aluminum shift paddles, level 2 ADAS systems, a rearview camera, parking sensors and wireless charging, among other things.

Models equipped with an automatic transmission offer as standard equipment an aluminum steering column shifter. In addition, as standard equipment, all models offer:

  • ADAS level 2 . system
  • Rearview camera with dynamic grid
  • Sensors front and rear
  • Wireless charging
  • The tailgate operates automatically.

You can get the Giulia 6C with either a 187 hp (190 ps) 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine, or a 197 hp (200 ps) 2.0-liter turbo gasoline unit, both featuring rear-wheel drive. The Stelvio 6C is available with a 207 hp (210 ps) 2.2-liter turbo diesel or a 276 hp (280 ps) 2.0-liter turbo gasoline engine, both with all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic gearboxes.

The Italian carmaker has yet to mention any specifics regarding pricing or the availability of the two limited edition variants, but don’t expect either of them to come cheap.

Alfa Romeo has not announced the pricing and availability of the limited editions, but we expect them to be slightly more expensive than the Veloce. As a reminder, the Giulia was launched in 2015, followed by the Stelvio in 2016. Both models received a facelift in 2020 with some updates. Currently, these two models are the only ones offered by Alfa Romeo. However, the Italian automaker is poised to unveil the Tonale plug-in hybrid C-SUV in the summer of 2022, followed by an all-electric B-SUV in 2023.
