For those sufficiently talented, the Giulia Quadrifoglio must provide the ideal base for an Alfa-themed restomod. It’s light and exciting to drive as a standard-bodied saloon; reducing the kerbweight through exotic materials would only bring further benefits. The turbo V6 is a firecracker, and there’s a manual gearbox option (in LHD) available for purists alongside a very good automatic. We’ve already seen the spectacular work Zagato is capable of with those foundations; now it’s the turn of coachbuilder ErreErre Fuoriserie. Which probably sounds better in Italian.
The ErreErre Fuoriserie Giulia retains a lot of the Quadrifoglio’s vital bits, only it repackages them in a carbon body inspired by the 1962 Giulia Super. In fact, ‘inspired’ probably sells the design short - it’s almost a recreation. The headlights very closely mimic the old saloon, as do the wheels and that unmistakeable silhouette. Arguably that was a little more successful on a smaller car. Only at the rear does the ErreErre Fuoriserie differ significantly from the Giulia template, with circular lights (albeit still in a rectangular housing) and a prominent exhaust/diffuser combo recognisable from the recent GTA.
The mechanicals are largely familiar from the Quadrifoglio, though the 2.9-litre engine does now breathe through a Capristo exhaust. Power is rated at 570hp, a useful bump from the standard 510hp. Interestingly, too, suspension is now by Bilstein B16 coilovers, which likely provide a more focused setup than the regular car. The show car for Auto e Moto d'Epoca in Bologna featured the manual gearbox, too, which feels very odd to see in a Giulia cabin for UK eyes but will surely be the preference for those customers after a more traditional experience. A sill plaque suggests that 33 of these ErreErre Fuoriserie Giulias will be built.
As is restomod rule, especially when reskinning a car in carbon fibre, the work doesn’t come cheap. Expect to pay €400,000 for one of these, though that does include a donor car (but not VAT). According to Motor1 Italia, the work to make a Giulia into a Giulia should take about six months. During which time you can think about its best angle…
