Alfa Romeo Giulia Speciale Gets 15 Units Only for Canada

Published on June 17, 2022 in News by Guillaume Rivard

Alfa Romeo is using the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend to unveil a limited edition of the Giulia compact sedan. All 15 units will be reserved for customers in Canada and painted in an exclusive Verde Montreal Tri-coat colour that was previously only available on Quadrifoglio models.

The Giulia Speciale is based on the Veloce model with Q4 all-wheel drive and features the Quadrifoglio’s adaptive suspension as standard. This suspension technology scans the road and quickly adjusts shock valving to deliver greater handling characteristics at speed while maintaining a comfortable ride.

Other than that Verde Montreal, the exterior of the car stands out with black badging, grille and mirrors caps. Staggered 19-inch dark wheels with yellow calipers and carbon-fibre side sills provide an aggressive stance.

Inside, standard leather dash, steering wheel, centre armrest, shift lever and upper door panel coverings are laced with red stitching. Carbon-fibre accents cover parts of the dash, doors and centre console. This is complemented by black leather sport seats and a Harman Kardon premium audio system.

The engine is the same as the Veloce models. The Giulia Speciale features a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder that produces 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque via an eight-speed automatic transmission. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, according to Alfa Romeo.

“Alfa Romeo and the City of Montreal have a proud connection to each other, and the new Giulia Speciale model enhances that relationship by providing consumers with an unrivaled driving experience and a head-turning appearance unique to Canada,” said Larry Dominique, head of Alfa Romeo, North America.

Pricing for the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia Speciale starts at $71,995 plus a destination charge of $2,095. Before those 15 units begin to arrive in dealerships later this month, visitors in Montreal can take a look at the car during the Formula Peel event, which ends on Sunday.
