ErreErre Fuoriserie, based in Turin, has built a special body kit for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio with a design inspired by the original Giulia Tipo 105 from the 60s as a tribute to its 50th anniversary.
The model was quietly unveiled at the Concorso d’eleganza auto d’epoca Poltu Quatu Classic in Sardinia, Italy last weekend. Following videos and photos uploaded by people who attended the event, the company unveiled it in its entirety, through an official photo gallery. The custom bodywork is carbon fiber, with ErreErre Fuoriserie devoting a total of 5,000 hours to design development.

The relationship to the modern Giulia is evident from the greenhouse, but just about everything else is restyled taking inspiration from the classic. The front takes on a squarer look with a pair of round headlights on either side that are integrated into the retro-style grille alongside the significantly smaller Scudetto grille. The bumper has round inlets and a carbon fiber splitter, the bonnet is vented and the fenders protrude from the front doors creating an opening.
The profile is characterized by the retro-style 19-inch CNC-milled rims with fifteen small holes. However, it is the rear part that stands out as the least recognizable compared to the donor car. The LED taillights come from a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, with the custom tailgate featuring an integrated spoiler that extends to the rear fenders, fading into the rear doors. Another twin spoiler is mounted on the roof, while the rear bumper is more boxy and has a large diffuser with twin exhaust pipes in the centre. The interior remains unchanged, although the customer can opt for new materials.
The unique Giulia did not receive any mechanical modifications to the engine or the adaptive suspension. That means the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 still produces 503 PS (375 kW / 510 hp) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque as in the regular Giulia Quadrifoglio. Power is transmitted to the rear axle through an eight-speed automatic transmission using a limited-slip differential.
ErreErre Fuoriserie describes the vehicle as “the granddaughter wearing her grandmother’s dress”. They also call it a “retromod”, but we would use the term reverse restomod. Their goal was to “combine Italian craftsmanship with the most modern design and construction techniques”. There is no word for the cost of the conversion, but it looks like the model is intended to be produced in limited quantities or to remain unique.
