Alfa Romeo has whipped the wraps off the Stelvio and Giulia GT Junior, a series of limited-edition vehicles paying tribute to the Italian car manufacturer’s “unparalleled” historical heritage. 

Stelvio Junior
2.2-litre oil-burner directs power to all four 21-inch alloy wheels.

Inspired by the GT 1300, “an icon of the 1960s”, the special Stelvio and Giulia are dressed in “captivating” Lipari Ochre body hue. Inside, the duo of special Alfa Romeos’ electrically adjustable leather seats feature “GT Junior” embroidered on the headrests, along with model-specific stitching. The dashboard features a “stylish” GT 1300 pattern and silhouette. 

Giulia Junior
The special-series Giulia is equipped with a set of 19-inch alloy wheels.

Based on the Giulia Veloce, the GT Junior variant is powered by Alfa Romeo’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbopetrol engine, which directs 206 kW and 400 N.m of torque to the rear axle via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Stelvio GT Junior is endowed with the company’s 2.2-litre oil-burner which, like its sedan stablemate, is coupled to an eight-speed self-shifter, which can be operated via aluminium, steering column-mounted paddle shifters. The Stelvio’s 2.2-litre turbodiesel motor produces 157 kW, which is directed to Alfa Romeo’s Q4 all-wheel-drive system.
