Alfa Romeo has unveiled the limited run, NRing special editions of its Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models, with each version being limited to 108 units to signify the 108th anniversary of the Italian automaker. Features common to both the Giulia and Stelvio NRing edition models are the Circuito Grey exterior paintwork and a numbered plaque within the cabin.

Of course, with both in Quadrifoglio specification, powertrain is courtesy of the marque’s 2.9 litre biturbo V6 petrol engine producing 510 PS and 600 Nm of torque. The Giulia does 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 307 km/h, while the top Stelvio does 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 283 km/h.

Standard equipment on the NRing limited edition cars include carbon-ceramic brakes, Sparco racing seats with red stitching and a carbon-fibre shell structure, a leather and Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel with carbon-fibre inserts, and an automatic gearlever knob with carbon-fibre inserts. The Giulia NRing gains a bare carbon-fibre roof, while the Stelvio NRing gets an electrically operated panoramic roof.

Other features which set the NRing editions apart from the standard-run models include a Welcome Kit comprising Sparco racing gloves and customised soft-shell jacket, an Alfa Romeo-branded sports bag, Quadrifoglio cuff-links, Car Shoe driving footwear and a scale model of their chosen car, as well as an invitation to a driving experience with Alfa Romeo at the Nurburgring.

The Nurburgring Nordscheleife was where the top Giulia clocked a lap time of seven minutes 32 seconds, and the top Stelvio charted a lap time of seven minutes 51.7 seconds, the former making the Italian sedan the fastest to go around the German circuit.

Given the Nurburgring’s reputation as development grounds for high-performance vehicles, it seems natural to have special edition models named after the hallowed circuit. Italian flair with an added dose of carbon-fibre – even more attractive?
