01.03.2018

Mere days before the Geneva Motor Show kicks off next week, Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has unveiled a number of limited edition Fiats and Alfa Romeos due to debut at the Swiss showpiece.

Fiat 124 Spider S-Design

Mainly benefitting from a series of cosmetic additions, Fiat's take on the Mazda MX-5 receives an Abarth style white paint finish with red stripes, lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels, polished steel roll bar, mirror caps and front pillar and a tricolour badge on the boot lid.

Inside, the interior remains unchanged with the same applying to the 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged engine that produces 103 kW and 240 Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or similar ratio automatic gearbox. Top speed is rated at 215 km/h for the manual and 214 km/h for the auto, while the 0-100 km/h sprint is dealt with in 7.5 and 7.6 seconds respectively.

Alfa Romeo Giulia & Stelvio QV NRING

Build to celebrate both model's respective track records at the 'Ring, the NRING versions come finished in a bespoke Circuito Grey hue and are additionally furnished with carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fibre grille inserts and carbon mirror caps, black alloy wheels, exposed carbon fibre roof and on the inside, Sparco race seats with carbon shells and red stitching, Mopar gear lever with carbon fibre detailing, a leather and Alcantara trimmed steering wheel also with carbon inserts and a commemorative plaque.

Limited to just 108 units to celebrate Alfa Romeo's 108th birthday, both models retain the Ferrari-sourced 375 kW/ 600 Nm 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, allowing the Giulia to reach 100 km/h from standstill in 3.9 seconds and the Stelvio in 3.8 seconds. Top speed is 307 km/h and 283 km/h respectively.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti

Reviving an equally iconic Alfa Romeo moniker, the Ti uses the four-cylinder Veloce model as a base and adds cosmetic paraphernalia in the form of five-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels, carbon fibre mirror caps, side skirts and lip spoiler, carbon fibre interior inserts, a black headliner and leather and Alcantara seats.

Power is unchanged from the Veloce with the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol making 206 kW and 400 Nm of torque, linked to an eight-speed automatic gearbox with drive going to all four wheels via Alfa's Q4 system.

Alfa Romeo 4C Competizione & 4C Spider Italia

Using the 4C Coupe as a base, the Competizione features a unique Vesuvio Grey paint finish, dark 18-inch alloy wheels at the front and 19-inches at the rear, red brake calipers, a titanium Akrapovic centrally mounted exhaust with twin carbon fibre outlets, and carbon fibre finishes on the roof, boot spoiler, around the headlights, on the mirror caps and around the side vents.

Changes to the interior are more limited and consist of a leather and micro-fibre covered racing steering wheel as well as seats, a special Competizione badge on the dashboard and an aluminium plaque on the transmission tunnel. Like the Giulia and Stelvio QV NRING models, only 108 units will be made.

Completing line-up, and also limited to 108 units, the 4C Spider Italia gets an exclusive Misano Blue paint finish, yellow brake calipers, Spider Italia side stickers, five-spoke alloy wheels with 18-inches at the front and 19-inches at the rear, the same titanium Akrapovic exhaust with twin carbon fibre outlets like the Competizione and on the inside, a premium Alpine sound system with subwoofer, Italia badge on the dashboard and numbered plaque on the transmission tunnel.

For both models, the 1.75-litre turbocharged engine is kept as is with outputs of 177 kW and 350 Nm of torque, sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed TCT dual-clutch gearbox. Top speed is 258 km/h for the Competizione and 257 km/h for the Italia.
