Alfa Romeo presents the Stelvio and Giulia Junior, Italian beauty

In 1966 Alfa Romeo introduced the 1300 GT Junior, a special version derived from the classic Giulia Sprint GT of the 1960s, which offered a magnificent 90 hp and 115 Nm of torque from a 1.3 petrol engine to move a car. which weighed only 970 pounds. The 1300 GT Junior version became a real one hit commercial and sold more than 100,000 units of this version until Alfa Romeo stopped manufacturing it in 1976.

After touching the sky with the GTA and GTAm versions of the modern Giulia (Alfa Romeo has already sold all the units despite their price), those in Milan have now decided to recover the historical name of the Italian model for the Giulia and Stelvio.

Giulia i Stelvio Junior

Modern Junior versions release a new golden body color that wants to be a tribute to the original model, and is based on the level of equipment and mechanics of the Veloce versions, the step immediately below the Quadrifoglio Verde versions with V6 engine of Ferrari origin and 510 hp of power. This means that the mechanical options of the Giulia and Stelvio GT Junior are limited to a 2.0 four-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 280 hp and 400 Nm of torque and a 2.2 diesel engine also with four cylinders of 210 hp and 410 Nm of torque, always associated with an eight-speed automatic transmission of ZF origin and Q4 all-wheel drive on all four wheels. In all cases the models can accelerate from 0 to 100 in just over six seconds and have a top speed of more than 215 km / h.

The Giulia GT Junior uses 19-inch wheels, while the new Stelvio GT Junior uses 21-inch wheels, and both models feature some special aesthetic details such as door frames and windows and black-painted details. in the front and air inlets. We still do not know the final price of these special editions in our market, or how many units Alfa Romeo will eventually manufacture in this historical series.
