Alfa Romeo today unveiled the limited-edition 2019 Quadrifoglio NRING (Nürburgring) vehicles for North America, limited to only 110 total examples between Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Only five of each will be offered in Canada.
“Alfa Romeo has always been something truly special in the automotive world, whether on the race circuit or the open road,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo. “Today, we honour not only what Alfa Romeo represents to the automotive community, but what it stands for as a storied brand with historic racing victories and record-setting laps at the Nürburgring. Enthusiasts in North America can now experience that tradition firsthand with these special, limited-edition Quadrifoglio NRING vehicles.”
The NRING editions take the Quadrifoglio lineup to its extreme, celebrating Alfa Romeo’s century-plus history in racing and its unique connection to one of motorsport’s most celebrated and challenging racetracks. The Quadrifoglio lineup was designed to be the fastest sedan and SUV at Nürburgring, accomplished with Italian engineering and the most powerful production Alfa Romeo engine ever.
The NRING editions pay homage to Alfa Romeo’s performance at the 73-turn, 20.7-kilometre (12.9-mile), world-renowned Nürburgring track. Giulia Quadrifoglio cinched a 7:32 lap time, earning the claim of fastest five-passenger vehicle in the world; and Stelvio Quadrifoglio delivered an impressive 7:51.7 lap time that made it the fastest production SUV sold in North America.
