Alfa Romeo releases limited Giulia and Stelvio ‘GT Junior’ edition in Japan



Alfa Romeo has introduced two special edition models in Japan, the Giulia and Stelvio ‘GT Junior’ Editions, based on the Alfa Romeo GT1300 from 1965.

99 units of the Giulia and 40 units of the Stelvio SUV will be available exclusively in Japan at 6.8 million yen (approx. RM246k) and 7.9 million yen (approx RM286k) respectively. Both editions are based on the Veloce variant.

This means both the Giulia and Stelvio ‘GT Junior’ editions are powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission with 280 hp and 400 Nm. The only difference is that the Giulia is rear-wheel drive while the Stelvio channels power to all four wheels.

To mimic the car from 1965, the new Giulia and Stelvio ‘GT Junior’ editions were finished with the “Reaper Ocher” exterior colour. According to Alfa Romeo, it’s a modern interpretation of the colour used by the original GT1300 Junior. The GT1300 Junior was so popular for its stylish design and sporty character that Alfa Romeo sold over 100,000 of them.

Matching the striking exterior finished are new 19-inch wheels for the Giulia and 21-inches for the Stelvio, paired with black brake calipers. For a more sinister appearance, the front grille, side mirror covers, and exhaust tips are also finished in black.

The sinister theme continues inside with a full black leather interior and a sports steering with paddle shifters, a Harman Kardon sound system, 8.8-inch touchscreen display, and brushed aluminium trims.
