Alfa Romeo called the cost of the “charged” sedans Giulia GTA and GTAm and introduced the optional liveries developed for them in the company Centro Stile. The coloring of the models imitates the design of the Alf racing cars that took part in the European bodywork championship of the 1970s and represents various combinations of red, black, white or yellow.

The extreme Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm, presented in early March, are based on a modification of the Giulia Quadrifoglio, that is, they are equipped with a 2.9-liter aluminum biturboshester. Engine power here is 540 horsepower versus 510 for the usual “four leaf” and 520 for the version of Alfa Romeo Racing.

Sedans are equipped with Akrapovič titanium exhaust, other shock absorbers and springs, carbon fiber parts, and also active aerodynamics, developed with the participation of Sauber Engineering, Alfa Romeo Formula 1 partner.

Both cars can be painted in the base Trophy White, Montreal Green and GTA Red, as well as in one of the liveries imitating the racing “Alpha” of the past. In total, Alfa Romeo will build 500 copies of the Giulia GTA and GTAm. The price of the “youngest” four-door is 175,000 euros. For the GTAm track with an amplifier instead of a back sofa and a curb weight reduced by 100 kilograms, you will have to pay 180,000 euros. Such a car accelerates to a hundred in 3.6 seconds.

Meanwhile, the usual Giulia Quadrifoglio costs from 86,500 euros; crossover Stelvio Quadrifoglio – from 96 600 euros.

For the first time, the GTA designation appeared on the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA coupe in 1965. Autodelta built a model on the platform of the sedan of the same name, but with significant modifications. So, steel exterior panels of the body were replaced by aluminum, glass windows were changed to plastic. The last time the nameplate was used on the MiTo GTA concept.
