swaps My car of the day, 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA & GTAm.

If you thought the Giulia Quadifoglio was awesome then feast your eyes on this even more focused, more powerful and more aggressive version. This special edition will be limited to just 500 units and comes in two forms: GTA and the stripped out GTAm with the latter losing it's rear seats, and replacing them with a roll cage, six point harnesses and a rear molding design in the seats to secure your helmets. The powertrain has only a small increase to 532 BHP, up from 503 BHP from the regular model which is in part thanks to the fitment of a new Akrapovic Titanium exhaust system that finishes via two large central exhaust pipes. 100 Kg has been taken off so in addition to the carbon roof and bonnet we now have added carbon front wings, a carbon boot lid, carbon drive shaft, carbon front bumper,carbon rear arch extensions and carbon bucket seats. Alfa's engineers have widened the tracks by 50 mm and added new springs, shocks and bushes in a bid to make the GTA more agile. On the inside, changes are limited to a new part carbon steering wheel, a matt carbon finish on the center console and dash with lots of alcantara wrapped across the dash, door cards and lower console. Alfa Romeo have not announced UK pricing and availability as of yet.

Like it?

standar car looks better and and plenty of better track focused car for 150k or just buy an old Alfa race car, but I'm sure they will be sold and not see much daylight :-)
