Return of a Legend

More than a century after its founding, Alfa Romeo is returning to its roots, bringing back one of the legends of its history and of motoring in general: Giulia GTA.

With a limited production run of just 500 vehicles, the new Giulia GTA is technically and conceptually inspired by the Giulia GTA of 1965: the Gran Turismo Alleggerita developed by Autodelta 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 540hp. 

With its extensive use of ultra-light materials, it benefits from a weight reduction of 100kg compared to the Giulia Quadrifoglio, achieving a best-in-class weight/power ratio of 2.82 kg/hp.

Specific technical solutions have also been developed for aerodynamics, setup and handling.

The Giulia GTAm is an extreme 100-per-cent street legal version of the GTA, characterised by two racing seats, a roll bar and six-point safety belts.

Alfa Romeo is now accepting pre-booking for Giulia GTA and GTAm, available in only 500 certified, numbered units in total. Lucky buyers will receive an exclusive customer experience, with one-to-one sales process and dedicated experience package.
