6 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA coming soon

Cover for Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA coming soon

According to rumors, the new Giulia version, known as the GTA, will increase in performance to 620 hp and will be twenty kilograms lighter than the current top version.

No major changes are expected from a technical point of view, same 2.9 liter V6 from Ferrari.

This "special edition" will celebrate the 110th anniversary of the brand.

Screw it, just jam in the biturbo V8 from the F8 Tributo.

doesn't quite make sense that it shares the same Bore and stroke of the Portofino engine, minus 2 cylinders and has more power still? Given the new Roma has 620PS. Even if they did make such a Giulia, it would be a V8.

But given how Ferrari have purposely made some of their turbo V8's less powerful in their more entry level cars, I doubt they'd allow a Giulia to step on the toes of its bigger brothers.

Let's not forget that this is an anniversary model, so not much will be produced.
With 620bhp the power/liter ratio would be 214bhp/liter. That's pretty much, but possible.

So they wouldn't care much if some of that small batch blew up at 620 ps? :D At 500 PS it is already quite a torque monster. Imagine how it would shred with 620 PS. They would have to electronically nanny the torque in low gears to make sure no more-money-than-driving-skills owner hurts himself.

All other super saloons I can think of with that kind of power are 4 wheel drive.

Forgot about the CTS-V! I bet the traction control on it is going nuts all the time, even though that is a bigger car (presumably more weight on the wheels) and with more cylinders (presumably less boost and more rpm) - CTS-V makes max torque at comparatively high 3600 rpm, Giulia sixer at 2500.
