Alfa Romeo's fashionable Quadrifoglio 100th anniversary models are Peak Moda

Nobody gets design right like the Italians. Whether it’s cars, boats, fashion or jewelry, they have a sixth sense that naturally helps them create beautiful things. And when it comes to Stellantis’ Italian brands, well, they’ve been killing it lately on that front. Consider the recently revealed Fiat 500e concepts that pay homage to Italy’s greatest design houses. They are proof that big designs can live in small packages. On Thursday, Alfa Romeo followed up with its “Quadrifoglio 100th Anniversaro” Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV, which, despite the lack of significant changes from the regular models, show that the Italian automaker is keeping up with the latest design and fashion trends.

All 100th anniversary models will be the top Quadrifoglio models and have new badges written at the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo in Turin. These offer a new take on the legendary four-leaf clover emblem, now adorned with a thick gold frame and an engraving from 1923-2023. The gold theme continues with new gold brake calipers that contrast beautifully with the iconic ‘telephone dial’ Alfa wheels and gold stitching along the seats, dashboard and festive badges located throughout the cabin. If you ask me, Alfa missed the boat by not including some beautiful gold colored wheels, but I’ll forgive them.

Pay attention to the latest Rolex ad campaigns and you’ll see plenty of green dials encased in gold bezels or the latest Bvlgari handbags finished in emerald green leather with gold hardware. Gucci shoes and Armani suit? Same story. It’s true that most fashion trends eventually trickle down to the automotive world – especially the high-end ones – but Alfa has really killed it here. I mean, that Quadrifoglio emblem – I’d shrink it down and make it a signet ring.

These anniversary models may offer minimal changes, but I see this as quality over quantity. Alfa didn’t release prices, so I can’t speak for whether it’s a good financial decision to spring for one of these (probably not). Still, if you want a car that drives great and looks even better, I think it’s hard to top a Giulia Quadrifoglio in green and gold. Rosso Etna and Vulcano Black are also offered, but why bother?

Order banks open later this spring and deliveries start in the third quarter, so you don’t have much time to save your pennies. Oh, and only 100 units of each model will be produced. So act quickly.
