The GTA design will take some cues from the Alfa Romeo 156 GTA forebear and it will include the arrow-head front grille and telephone-dial alloys, making it instantly recognizable as an Alfa, while bonnet vents and a deep front bumper with integrated foglights add aggression.
Perhaps most significant is the decision to fit hidden rear handles, giving the four-door the look of a two-door.
Under the hood, it will use a version of the Maserati Ghibli’s Ferrari-built 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, producing between 480bhp and 520bhp.
Power will be sent to the rear wheels and Giulia is also rumored to weight less than the M3 which now tips the scale at around 1,635 kg.
As a result, a 0-62mph sprint time is rumored to be under four seconds.
To help tame all that power, expect a limited-slip differential and a dual-clutch gearbox as standard.
Expect the Giulia GTA to launch in 2016
