THIS is the New Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm! FIRST DRIVE

This is the new Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm and everything you want to know about it! Join me for an in depth discovery inside and out, as well as my first drive in the limited edition, track version of Alfa's Giulia. The GTAm is something special, so let's find out all about it!

When Alfa Romeo launched the Giulia Quadrifoglio a few years ago, it immediately signaled fresh beginnings for the company with a very capable, enjoyable, sporty and exciting model to bring things back into action. In fact it was for that first drive that I last visited Balocco, Alfa's proving grounds in Northern Italy where this time around it's for the massively more bonkers, GTAm.

This is a car that doesn't appear to make any sense; particularly in stripped out GTAm form, but that's only until you get behind the wheel. It's a limited build of only 500 cars, split between GTA and GTAm depending on customer orders. The 2.9l twin turbo V6 now makes 540hp (up 30hp) and 600Nm of torque but it's more about the focus on aero, weight savings, and track performance, despite being based on a 4-door saloon/sedan model.

Visually it's wide and aggressive, available in 3 different colours: GTA Red, Trophy White and Montreal Green (the colours of the Italian flag), and equipped with lots of lovely carbon fibre. In full GTAm guise there's a gigantic adjustable spoiler on the boot lid and an extendable front lip to match. On the interior, the GTAm spec removes the rear seats in favour of a fixed cage and harnesses, with plexi side and rear windows to match. All models are supplied with a matching Goodwool car cover and Bell helmet, with the GTAm also including an Alpinestars racesuit included in the price.

The GTA does however carry quite the price tag, coming in at €177,000 for the regular model before a €5,000 markup for the GTAm. For that you do get a performance machine with carbon panels including the bonnet and arches, but it's a fair old increase over double the already very capable Giulia Quadrifoglio.

Let's take a full look around the new car, including an opportunity to slide it around a bit on the Balocco test track, as well as out on the roads, to really take in what the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm is all about!

Thanks for watching, Tim

    I've been looking forward to getting behind the wheel of this one; the new and absolutely crazy Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm! It's limited, track focused, makes almost no sense... yet also captures the attention of all petrolheads as something totally unique. What do you think about it?

    I think it's great, but I see Alfa didn't take my advice and UPGRADE that hideous plastic engine cover trim panel! It looks like something out of a power rangers cartoon - cheap and cheesy! For that price point, they need to really upgrade to something fancier of a light alloy. And as far as HP, just do what you must to up that bad boy to an even 600 and you'll be speaking my language! Again....

    That green is beautiful. Are they making 500 of each the gta and gtam? Either way it’s pretty rare to have a vehicle so track focused but somewhat practical on road at the same time ( not bone jarring ride , room for some luggage). Exclusivity usually has a higher price. Would love to see this added to the shmeemobiles.

    With this car, I now understand why the GT-R NISMO costs that much. It's great to see car manufactures creating these emotional cars nearing the end of an engine era. I am also curious and also worried about how Alfa (and Ferrari for that matter) would make the future EV cars emotional. Drive the engines while you can everyone!!

Here's an idea since you've obviously majored in patronizing..simple don't buy one. Why are you watching a video about a car you think is unreliable and sucks? I just don't get it. Just to tell us all how bad it is? Haha

    I compleatly agree to you, I have the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio 280hp version and the car is awsome. It is fun to drive, the performance, how quick it is, the steering, and everything is just amazing and perfect. Maybe on paper a Porsche Macan or some BMW X3 models are better, but in life, it is 100% that the Alfa will give you the best emotions

My brother in-law's family is Swiss and go on lots of European rallies in one their of several Porsches as do 75% of everybody else so if you want something different to a 911 on a Rally this would be a great option like your Aston.
