Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA in the words of its creators
At the end of 2020, when Alfa Romeo celebrated its 110th birthday, Arnaud Leclerc, Head of Alfa Romeo EMEA, Klaus Busse, Head of Design EMEA and Fabio Migliavacca, Head of Product Marketing EMEA, reveal the background to the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA project . The four-door high-performance sedan is the most powerful production vehicle in the history of Alfa Romeo, a super sports car for the road and the racetrack. With an output of 397 kW (540 hp), the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA is a gift that the brand makes to every fan of Alfa Romeo and every enthusiast of the automobile in general. In the video, Leclerc, Busse and Migliavacca convey the emotions that they experienced during the course of the project. You look back on development, design and production, on the time span from the first sketches to the market launch. For them, the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA is a real brand icon, a symbol of Italian culture and performance, Italian design and technical know-how.
The McLaren of Grand Tourers – McLaren’s modern interpretation of the classic GT – was revealed online on May 15. Superlight, yet supremely comfortable, the McLaren GT is powered by a 620PS 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, providing supercar performance. It accelerates from 0-100km/h (0-60mph) in 3.2 seconds and on to 326km/h (203mph), and can carry up to 570 litres of luggage – enough for a grand tour for two people. The McLaren GT also performs on the inside with luxurious trim options including Nappa leather, softgrain leather or Alcantara®, and seats unique to the McLaren GT that are designed for long distance comfort. The luggage bay can also be trimmed with SuperFabric®, developed to be resistant to stains, cuts, nicks and abrasions, as well as being breathable, easy to clean and quick to dry. The McLaren GT’s interior also features hidden-until-lit ambient lighting and the option of an electrochromic glazed panel to enhance ambience in the cabin, which is also trimmed with machined and knurled aluminium switches and controls.
Maro Engel made full use of all the possibilities offered by the new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series as standard: such as the most powerful AMG V8 series engine ever with 537 kW (730 hp), the sophisticated aerodynamics and extensive suspension adjustment options. For example, the front splitter made of visible carbon fibre was extended to the “Race” position, and the lower and upper wing blades of the rear spoiler were each adjusted in the middle position. The adjustable AMG coilover suspension with adaptive adjustment damping was lowered by five millimetres at the front and three millimetres at the rear to further enhance the venturi effect of the front diffuser. The camber was adjusted to the maximum possible values of negative 3.8 degrees at the front axle and negative 3.0 degrees at the rear. In the case of the adjustable anti-roll bars, racing professional Engel opted for the hardest of the three possible settings, and the 35-year-old adjusted the nine-stage AMG traction control between positions six and seven -depending on the section of the track. AMG GT Black Series customers can also take advantage of all these settings and variations.
