Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili – these days abbreviated to Alfa was formed on 24th June, 1910.
To celebrate the 110th anniversary of the company, Alfa Romeo is bringing back one of the legends of its history, theGiulia GTA. It is technically and conceptually inspired by the Giulia GTA of 1965: the “Gran Turismo Alleggerita” developed by Autodelta and based on the Giulia Sprint GT that racked up sporting successes worldwide.
Based on Giulia Quadrifoglio, Giulia GTA is fitted with a more powerful version of the Alfa Romeo 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo engine, now with 540 hp (403 kW in Australian terms).
A GTAm (modified) variant is an extreme 100 per cent street legal version of the GTA, characterised by two racing seats, roll bar and six-point safety harnesses.
With its extensive use of ultra-light materials, GTA and GTAm benefit from a weight reduction of 100kg compared to the Giulia Quadrifoglio.
Specific technical solutions have also been developed for aerodynamics, setup and handling.
Alfa Romeo will collect the declarations of interest on Giulia GTA and GTAm, available in only 500 certified, numbered units. Lucky buyers will receive an exclusive customer experience, with one-to-one sales process and dedicated experience package.
The fortunate new owners will also receive a personalised experience package kit, which includes a Bell helmet in special GTA livery, a full racing set by Alpinestars (race suit, gloves and shoes) and a personalised Goodwool car cover for protecting his or her GTA or GTAm.
In addition to other equipment for true enthusiasts, the Alfa Romeo customer experience also includes a specific driving course devised by the Alfa Romeo Driving Academy.
