New Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio GTA: UK prices confirmed

- 540hp Giulia revealed
- Upgraded aerodynamics
- Retuned suspension
- 100kg lighter than standard
- GTAm with no back seats
- Will cost from £161,000
The new hard-core Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio GTA will be one of the most expensive sports saloons on sale when it appears in the UK soon. This track-ready alternative to the upcoming BMW M3 Competition, Mercedes-AMG C63S and Jaguar Project 8 is lighter, more powerful, and far more expensive than the standard Giulia.
Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA design
The standard Giulia Quadrifoglio was a pretty wild-looking saloon, but these new GTA and GTAm models have dialled the aggression up to 11. Both are absolutely covered in sharp, angular carbon-fibre bits including a new front splitter, air intake trims, wider side skirts and flared rear wheel arches. Oh, and a massive rear spoiler – don’t forget about that.
Under this colossal wing, you’ll spot a new rear diffuser and pair of exhausts pipes – two fewer than on the standard Giulia Quadrifoglio. Don’t feel too hard-done-by, though – this dual-tip system is built by specialists Akrapovic and is made of super-lightweight titanium.
Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA engine and driving
The standard Giulia Quadrifoglio was a riot to drive. It had plenty of power and its rear-wheel-drive layout meant it’d happily turn its rear tyres into plumes of smoke at the drop of a hat. The new 540hp GTA model’s 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine produces 35hp more than the standard car, so it should be even more of a hoot to drive.
The standard Giulia Quadrifoglio will accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds, and you can bet the new GTA will be even quicker. Go for a stripped-out GTAm model (which weighs 100kg less than the standard car) and it’ll be even faster still. Both the GTA and GTAm come with retuned suspension that’s stiffer and positions the wheels on the left- and right-hand side of the car further apart. This should make the new Giulia GTA more agile through fast corners.
Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA interior
The new Giulia GTA comes with the same stylish interior as the Giulia Quadrifoglio with a few racy touches. There are fabric loops on the front doors instead of conventional door handles and you get some suede-like Alcantara trim on top of the dashboard.
If you’re planning to take your car on regular track days you can opt for a stripped-out GTAm model. This gets you a roll bar instead of back seats and a set of lower, lighter, more supportive bucket seats with racing harnesses instead of seat belts.
Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA price and release date
The Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA isn’t on sale in the UK yet, but when it is it’ll cost just over £161,000 in GTA trim, and a little more than £165,500 in GTAm spec. You can’t buy one just yet, but expect the order books to open before the end of 2020.
