Alfa Romeo has revealed a hardcore track-ready versions of its Giulia Quadrifoglio sedan, the GTA and GTAm. With less weight, more power, and a handful of aerodynamic upgrades, it’s the most extreme modern Alfa yet.

The Giulia GTA was made to celebrate Alfa Romeo’s 110th anniversary. GTA stands for Gran Turismo Alleggerita (the Italian word for lightened). The name was first used on the Giulia in 1965, where it saw immense motorsport success throughout Europe. Now the storied name is back. The Giulia GTA gets carbon fiber upgrades inside and out to save weight. There’s a carbon fiber roof, hood, front bumper, wheel arches, diffuser, driveshaft, and interior trim. Other lightweighting upgrades include Lexan for the rear door windows and rear windscreen, and lightweight aluminum used in the engine, doors and suspension components. Weight is a claimed 3350 pounds—a weight-savings of 220 pounds compared to the standard Giulia Quadrifoglio.
