The long-running Giulietta is finally coming to an end and has been given a fitting send off with a special edition that dials up the theatrics.
Alfa Romeo is seeing off its long-running Giulietta hatch with a special edition known as the Edizione Finale.
Just 35 units of the Giulietta Edizione Finale will be coming to Australia with a price of $48,950 (before on-road costs), with an equipment list largely based on the top-spec Veloce variant.
Alfa Romeo have fittingly turned up the Italian for the run-out model with a series of cosmetic changes including yellow brake calipers and front lip helping it stand out while the carbon-look exterior mirror covers, grille and side skirts give it a sportier feel.
The yellow touches continue inside with coloured stitching on the gear knob, steering wheel and floor mats with ‘Giulietta’ imprinted on each side.
Available only on this special edition is a choice of three colours known as Alfa White, Anodized Blue and Magnesium Grey Matte which are matched up with the dark miron 18-inch wheels.
Sitting under the bonnet remains the 1.75L turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that has been under the bonnet in various forms since the Giulietta first launched in 2010 – and was even modified for use in the carbon-fibre tubbed 4C coupe and convertible.
Making 177kW of power and 340Nm of torque, the Italian power unit shouts through a Magneti Marelli ‘Elaborazioni 1919’ sport exhaust system. A six-speed dual-clutch remains the sole transmission choice, which sends power to the front wheels.
Customer deliveries for the Giulietta Edizione Finale are already underway.
