As of now Alfa Romeo has not announced plans to sell this limited-edition automobile in the United States but fear not, they are evaluating the possibility and we hope they find a way to bring this beauty to market here. For our readers outside of the US, you could be a part of the lucky 500 that will be able to call this Guilia their own. There will be two versions, the Giulia GTA with four seats and the Giulia GTAm with two race seats, roll-bar and six-point harness, they will both feature the 2.9-liter V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine producing 540hp along with a raft of weight-saving solutions to remain true to the ethos of the original 1965 model.
On the Giulia GTA, the Alfa Romeo engineers worked like mad to improve the aerodynamics and handling and above all, they challenged themselves to reduce the weight. The active aerodynamics were specifically studied to increase the downforce. These solutions contain technical know-how that comes directly from Formula 1, thanks to the synergy with Sauber Engineering and the use of the Sauber Aerokit. The same task is assigned to the side skirts, the specific rear spoiler, and the active front splitter and on the GTAm, the aerodynamic front has been optimized by adding a larger front splitter and a real carbon-fiber rear wing, which ensure a perfectly balanced load at high speeds.
Inside the Alcantara trimmed dashboard, door panels, glove compartment, side pillars, and the central trim on the seats, characterize the interior tell you you are inside something special and very Italian. Alcantara is used even more extensively in the GTAm version, where the rear bench has been removed, leaving room for a fully upholstered ‘basin’, with specific moldings designed to hold helmets and a fire extinguisher. The new matt carbon-fiber inserts give the interior a distinctive technical and aesthetic elegance. In the new GTAm, the interior is unique in that it features a roll-bar, no door panels, or rear seats, and the door is opened with a belt in place of the handle, another touch inspired by the racing world.
As part of the exclusively dedicated customer experience, designed to treat the 500 lucky owners to a unique experience that is 100% Alfa Romeo will come as standard. The owners will receive a personalized experience package, which includes a Bell helmet in special GTA livery, a full racing set by Alpinestars (race suit, gloves, and shoes) and a personal Goodwool car cover for protecting their GTA or GTAm. Customers can also take part in a specific driving course devised by the Alfa Romeo Driving Academy. We are thinking that production should go from 500 to 600 leaving 100 for us in the states, just a thought. Alfa Romeo #GiuliaGTA
