After the cancellation of the Geneva auto show, most auto makers announced online demos. Among them is Alfa Romeo, which today, March 2, plans to organize the display of the most extreme variation of the Giulia sedan – Giulia GTA.

It is assumed that we are talking about a “hot” modification of the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan, which will resurrect the GTA designation (Gran Tourismo Allegerita) – the last time the nameplate was on the MiTo GTA prototype in 2009, and before it was equipped with the most sporty variation Alfa Romeo 156.

In the teaser image, you can see the developed aerodynamic elements made of carbon plastic, such as a splitter and air intakes. They are intended for a stronger clamping of the front axle of the car to the road surface, effective redirection of air flows around the body and cooling of brake mechanisms.

 Giulia GTA will be equipped with the same 2.96-liter V6 biturbo engine as the flagship Giulia Quadrifoglio Alfa Romeo Racing, while its performance will increase from 520 hp. (600 Nm) to 600 – 630 hp

 The engine will be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It is expected that the Giulia GTA will be 20 kg lighter than the original “4-leaflet,” which, together with increased returns, will have a positive impact on the dynamics of dispersal – and the novelty can also return the brand to the title of King of the Nurburgring.
