Giulia GTAm is the hottest Alfa Romeo ever
Alfa Romeo is going to celebrate 110 years in business on 24th June 2020. They are going to pay tribute to the most emblematic vehicles of all time: the Alfa Giulia GTA. GTA was first launched in the market in 1965 at the Amsterdam Motor Show. Back then the car had a 1.6-litre twin-cam engine and weighed only 745kg. 86kW was a lot at the time, but Autodelta, Alfa Romeo’s official racing team, took the engine under their ‘care’ and developed 127kW from it.
