ErreErre Fuoriserie can turn your new Alfa Romeo Giulia into an old one for £270,000

To celebrate 60 years of the 105-series Alfa Romeo Giulia, ErreErre has infused a modern Giulia Quadrifoglio with its forefather’s DNA. The results are…mixed.

Think ‘60s Alfa Romeo and it’s hard not to imagine a 105-series Giulia Sprint GTA being thrashed around Spa with its inner front wheel hanging in the air. But there’s an Alfa that had arguably more significance to the wider public at the time, one that’s often overlooked: the Giulia Super saloon.

With the same core platform and mechanicals as its celebrated motorsport brethren, the Giulia Super brought sports car handling and performance to the masses, with space for four and an enormous boot to, um, boot. Now, as the Giulia Super passes its 60th birthday, Italian firm ErreErre Fuoriserie has unveiled a reincarnation of the icon, built around today’s Giulia Quadrifoglio and limited to 33 units. 

The retro cues aren’t subtle – the current Giulia’s flowing lines have been contorted to cast the same boxy silhouette as the original, albeit without modifying its core safety cell. The original Giulia’s distinctive quad headlight signature has been grafted onto the nose, integrated with a defined scalloped shoulder line that runs the entire length of the car as per the classic. 

Slab-sided doors and a new roof skin have also been applied, along with a modern interpretation of the 1962 car’s aerodynamic kamm-tail design. The ‘60s design themes clash awkwardly with the modern Giulia’s more curvaceous proportions, so there’s no mistaking the source material. 

Riding on Alfa’s Giorgio platform, the ErreErre Giulia receives custom Bilstein B16 suspension at each corner and carbon ceramic Brembo brakes – useful given that the Quadrifoglio’s 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 has been uprated to 554bhp from 513bhp. Peak torque is rated at 502lb ft, with drive sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed ZF gearbox. 

Given its extreme rarity and extensive bodywork modifications, the ErreErre Giulia doesn’t come cheap. Each of the 33 customers will need to fork out €400,000 (c£350,000), although this price includes a £78,195 donor car. That means you’re looking at around £270,000 to convert your new Giulia into an old one – or you could buy the real deal for £20,000…
