The 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm are coming to Australia at last – with eye-watering price tags to match.
While Alfa Romeo Australia has yet to officially confirm the figures, it’s understood the Giulia GTA (or Gran Turismo Allegarita) is priced from $268,000 before on-road costs, with the GTAm (Gran Turismo Allegarita modificata) priced from $288,000 before on-road costs. They’re nearly twice as expensive as the ‘regular’ Giulia Quadrifoglio, priced from $138,950 before on-road costs, and even attract a higher price tag than one-size-up super sedans like the $246,900 BMW M5 Competition and $253,900 Mercedes-AMG E63 S.
Unveiled in March 2020, the GTA and GTAm are powered by the Quadrifoglio’s 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6, reworked with revised internals and a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system to develop 397kW and 600Nm – up 22kW over the donor car. The brand claims a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.6 seconds for the GTA – down 0.3 seconds over the Q – thanks to launch control and, crucially, a 100kg weight saving versus the Quadrifoglio (for a total of 1520kg).
Shedding kilograms are an array of race-inspired changes, including carbon-fibre front bumper, rear diffuser and wheel arches as part of a new aerodynamics package developed by the Alfa Romeo Racing (Sauber) Formula One team. Also standard on the GTA are 20-inch centre-locking alloy wheels, fitted to 50mm-wider front and rear tracks with wider wheel arches. A carbon-fibre lip spoiler also features.
Inside, the GTA scores Sparco sports bucket seats, Alcantara dashboard trim, contrast stitching (in the customer’s choice of colour), and the same 8.8-inch infotainment screen as in the standard Giulia.
The track-focused GTAm deletes the rear seats, and adds a roll cage, spaces for racing helmets, a fire extinguisher, six-point Sabelt harnesses, lighter front seats, aluminium components in the doors and suspension, Lexen polycarbonate windows, a manually-adjustable front splitter, and a large rear wing.
Just 500 examples of the Giulia GTA and GTAm will be built globally, though exactly how many will make their way to Australia isn’t clear.
It’s expected Alfa Romeo will officially confirm pricing and specification for the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm in the coming weeks.
