The British market received yet another special edition; this time it comes from the Italian automaker, Alfa Romeo , and it is called the Giulietta Collezione Limited Edition. The easiest way to distinguish it from the rest of the lineup is by its exclusive contrasting roof offered as a standard feature. The roof is painted matte Magnesio Grey on models donning a black body, whereas Alfa Red and Ghiaccio White models receive a black roof.
Along with the roof, Alfa Romeo offers special 17-inch titanium-finish alloy wheels, titanium-effect wing mirrors, darkened headlight surrounds and chrome door handles. For the interior, the Collezione Limited Edition adds black and red competizione cloth upholstery, and titanium-finish inserts on the doors, central console and dashboard.

The Giulietta was unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show as the successor to the 147. The model features a design language similar to what we saw from the 8C Competizione.
At launch, the Giulietta was offered only with two engines: a 1.4TB making 120 horsepower and the 1.4 TB MultiAir that cranks out a total of 170 horsepower, After a few months, Alfa added two diesel versions: a 1.6 JTDM pumping out 105 horsepower and the 2.0 JTDM that makes 170 horsepower.
