Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio 6c Villa D'este limited editions were introduced as a tribute to the 1949 Concorso d'Eleganza di Villa d'Este's Referendum Grand Prix-winning 6C 2500 SS Coupé.
Both versions are finished in a stunning three-layer Etna Red color that pays homage to the classic, with chrome-plated window frames. Stelvio rides on Alfa Romeo's traditional 21-inch alloy wheels, while Giulia rides on 18-inch alloy wheels with 5 double spokes.
Embroidered '6C Villa d'Este' insignia may be seen on the front headrests and dash. Standard features incorporate beige premium leather upholstery, electronically controlled and heated seats, aluminum shift paddles, level 2 ADAS systems, a back view camera, parking sensors, a wireless charging pad, and an electronically operated tailgate.
The Giulia ‘6C Villa d'Este' is available with a 2.2 turbodiesel engine that produces 187-hp (140 kW/190 PS) or a 2.0 turbo petrol engine that provides 197-hp (147 kW/200 PS). An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to the back wheels in both instances.
Furthermore, the Stelvio ‘6C Villa d'Este' is available with a more robust 2.2 turbodiesel engine that produces 207-hp (154 kW/210 PS) or a 2.0 turbo petrol engine that generates 276-hp (206 kW/280 PS) - exactly like the Veloce Ti. The SUV is only available in AWD with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The carmaker did not provide price or availability details for the limited Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio '6c Villa D'este' editions, although we anticipate them to be somewhat more costly than the Veloce trim. The Giulia was first introduced in 2015, joined by the Stelvio in 2016. In 2020, both models got a makeover that included numerous improvements. Those are the only Alfa Romeo models available at the time. The Tonale plug-in hybrid C-SUV will be unveiled in summer 2022, backed by a completely electric B-SUV in 2023, according to the Italian manufacturer.
