It took Alfa Romeo a year and a half to sell all 500 copies of the Giulia GTA and GTAm sports sedan. There will be no successors to the model as the Italian automaker prepares for full electrification.
Recall that the sports sedan Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm presented in March last year, the car became the most powerful production model of the Italian brand. Gulia GTA and GTAm is based on the top-end version of Quadrifoglio. The work was carried out in three directions: forcing the engine power, reducing the weight of the car and optimizing aerodynamics.
So, the 2.9-liter biturbo V6 engine received a performance of 540 hp. instead of the previous 510 “horses”. In addition, the 8-band automatic transmission was reconfigured. To reduce the weight of the sedan, the developers equipped the version of the Gulia GTA with ceramic brake discs, openwork 20-inch discs and a direct-flow Akrapovic exhaust system with two tailpipes in the center of the rear of the car.
In addition, the wheel arches, the front bumper, as well as the hood and roof panel were made of carbon fiber. To optimize aerodynamics, we have developed door sills, a spoiler on the luggage compartment lid and inserts in the front bumper.
In addition to the Gulia GTA version, an even more extreme modification was sold – Giulia GTAm. Technically, the models are identical. However, the GTAm variant has gotten an enlarged front splitter, sporty front seats with 6-point seat belts and an oversized rear wing. The weight of the Giulia GTAm is 100 kg lighter when compared to the Quadrifoglio sedan. The first “hundred” GTAm is gaining in just 3.6 seconds, versus 3.9 seconds for the base model.
The total circulation of two versions – Gulia GTA and GTAm was only 500 copies, all of which are sold out, but the company is ready to include those who want to purchase the model in the reserve list, and if someone of their first-line customers refuses to buy, the car will go to a new applicant .
Giulia GTA cost in Germany from 173,000 euros, Giulia GTAm – from 178,000 euros, while the usual Giulia Quadrifoglio can now be bought for 86,000 euros.
