Alfa Romeo Celebrates 110 Years With The 540HP Giulia GTA & GTAm

Mar 2, 2020

Category: Rides

When it comes to Alfa Romeo, birthdays are celebrated with a reevaluation of one of the company’s most prolific vehicles. After enamoring the automotive scene 110 years ago, the brand’s Gran Turismo Alleggerita — a supremely-designed namesake from 1965 — has been chosen to receive a much-needed touch-up, resulting in the newly-introduced GTA and GTAm.

Both models arrive as contemporary adaptations of the legendary Alleggerita, calling upon Sauber Engineering’s Formula 1-inspired principles and Aerokit, a titanium Akrapovič central exhaust system, and front/rear-wheel tracks that have been widened by 50mm to accommodate new springs, shock absorbers, and bushings. A large front splitter and carbon-imbued rear wing have been implemented to promote improved handling and performance, complementing the GTA’s 540-horsepower 2.9-liter V6 Bi-Turbo engine. Inside, drivers are treated to a similarly-inspired experience, bearing witness to an Alcantara-trimmed dashboard, glove compartment, central seat trim, and door panels. The premium GTAm, on the other hand, will boast an even more extensive Alcantara treatment, resulting in a fully upholstered basin, fire extinguisher and helmet holders, and carbon-fiber inserts throughout, demarcating its pedigree as a roll-bar-imbued race platform. Only 500 of each will be ever be made, with more information to be released at a later date.
