Alfa Romeo working on the Giulia GTA, will take on BMW M3 Sedan

Article by Christian A., on August 14, 2014

Next year Alfa Romeo is planning to launch the Giulia sedan, a rival for the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4. Still, it appears that Alfa Romeo wants to take things even further and add a GTA version of the Giula and take on the BMW M3 Sedan.

Just like the other GTA models from Alfa Romeo, the Giulia GTA will arrive with a more aggressive design consisting in a front bumper with big air intakes, the well-known arrow-head front grille and new telephone-dial wheels.

The big surprise will be found under the hood, where the sedan will use a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, an engine derived from the one used by Maserati. The total output delivered by the engine will be between 480 hp and 520 hp.

As a result, the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 4.0 seconds and a top speed limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The all-new Giulia, like all Alfa Romeos, emerges from the impeccable balance of tradition, speed, and loveliness, so that it is the ultimate statement of Italian styling in the world of automobiles. It combines every distinct feature of genuine Italian styling: a flawless sense of dimensions, effortlessness, and superiorly finished surfaces, for a revolutionary design faithful to a globally approved heritage.

The dimensions, based on the entire vehicle’s technical architecture, are also a direct result of such, and its style details draw from the vehicle’s mechanics. The all-new Giulia stands apart with its shortened overhangs, a lengthened bonnet, elongated front wings, a passenger compartment retracted to the drive wheels, and brawny rear wings visually marking where the road feels the unleashed power.

This profile comes from implementing the rear-wheel drive, engine, and mechanical components, arranged between the axles for a better balancing of mass. All this leads to into a very ample wheelbase, the longest in its group, encased in among the most solid bodies.

These dimensions appear to have a vibrant form of an ellipse in plain view. Also, the smoothed angles and the encompassing pillars create a drop-like silhouette, reminiscent of the Giulietta Sprint, which is one of the most beautiful cars ever built.

Another aspect of Italian styling is simplicity, achieved with some of the most intricate creative processes related to car design. Indeed, it is the styling that conceals the lengthy, intricate work going into creating a straightforward, natural outline enhancing elegant forms and sophisticated Italian refinement. Alfa Romeo’s designs have always found voice through simple, continuous streams.

Because of this, the all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia claims a powerful character with just a few simple lines: one recessed along the sides marking the doors and enveloping the handles and, obviously, the legendary trefoil nose, the most renowned, identifiable design touch in automotive history.
