2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

For roughly eight model years, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio have loyally served as the Italian automaker’s fighters against vehicles carrying an AMG, M, or RS badge. With Ferrari-derived engines, sleek Italian styling, and an emphasis on driver feel, Alfa Romeo’s Quadrifoglio models have given diehard driving enthusiasts a choice beyond the traditional German options. The auto industry continues to change and Alfa Romeo has to change with it. That means the Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio are getting the axe after the 2024 model year.

The news comes from Larry Dominique, Alfa Romeo’s Senior Vice President and Head of Alfa Romeo and Fiat North America. Interestingly, the news was shared on LinkedIn and not on the automaker’s official press or social media sites. Still, since this is coming from someone so high up at Alfa Romeo, we’re inclined to believe the news.

“2024 represents the final opportunity to order a Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio with a 505-horsepower bi-turbo V-6," says Dominique in the LinkedIn post. "This is the final chance to own a Quadrifoglio with only combustion engine technology as we continue our metamorphosis to an electrified future, but this is not the end of the story. I look forward to presenting the next chapter in the four-leaf clover’s journey.”

Alfa Romeo is currently in an odd stage at the moment. The Italitan automaker recently introduced the Tonale, a small SUV with a plug-in hybrid engine, and has plans to only launch electric vehicles starting in 2025. Alfa Romeo will become an all-electric brand starting in 2027. High-performance vehicles with a 505-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine don’t match Alfa Romeo’s all-electric image.

While Dominique didn’t provide any hints on what Alfa Romeo has in store for the future of the Quadrifoglio line, we expect the Italian marque to find a way to introduce high-performance EVs with the four-leaf clover badge. Reports indicate that the next generation of the Giulia Quadrifoglio will be an electric car with 1,000 horsepower. If that’s true, it would represent roughly double the amount of power the current Giulia Quadrifoglio has and a large increase in its performance.

Shoppers who want to purchase one of Alfa Romeo’s gas-powered Quadrifoglio models will have to act quickly. Dominique claims that order books for the 2024 Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio will close at the end of April 2024. The last gas-powered Quadrifoglio models will roll off the Cassino plant in June 2024.

Just last April, Alfa Romeo was celebrating 100 years of Quadrifoglio by introducing limited-edition versions of the Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio. These limited-edition models were aptly called the 100th Anniversario limited editions and were limited to 100 units each. It’s sad news, because nothing quite sounds like Alfa’s twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine or looks like a high-performance Alfa Romeo. But we have a lot of hope for Alfa Romeo’s future EVs.
