Formula 1 driver Valtteri Bottas joins the elite group of owners of Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm painted in the classic Alfa Romeo red. The Alfa Romeo GTAm is one of the most powerful vehicles ever manufactured by the company, the production of the GTAm model will release 500 units in total. Alfa Romeo’s top representatives were present at the delivery of the vehicle to the champion, Valteri has been a fan of Alfa Romeo for a long time and can finally call himself a proud owner of a legendary car, which represents for the firm a personal bond with Alfa Romeo, sharing the italian heritage that’s been offered for a long time.
Clearly, I’m a car fanatic, I always have been. But, above all, I love the Alfa Romeo brand. For me it is an honor to be its ambassador and now to become a customer, owner of one of the 500 Giulia GTAm; it is a technically excellent car, developed in collaboration with Sauber Engineering using skills and know-how that come directly from Formula 1”, Announced Valtteri Bottas, Alfa Romeo F1 driver.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm model represents one of the greatest legends of motorsport, the first Giulia debuted in 1965, a vehicle that managed to perfectly combine style and sportiness. The Giulia GTAm represents a return to Alfa Romeo’s roots in the field of performance and grand touring. The GTAm is inspired by the Quadrifoglio trim which offers similar features.. The vehicle is composed of a variety of ultra-lightweight materials, allowing the GTAm to achieve a weight reduction of up to 100 kg compared to the standard Giulia Quadrifoglio. The GTAm features an Alfa Romeo 2.9 V6 Biturbo engine with 540 hp, which offers a monstrous acceleration and torque.
Alfa Romeo engineers made several improvements to the aerodynamics of the GTAm and handling, but what they focused on most of all was to reduce the weight of the vehicle. To achieve these improvements, the engineers implemented various carbon fiber components and composite materials. The improved dynamics of the GTAm allow the car to increase aerodynamic downforce. At Sauber Engineering’s facilities, all Alfa Romeo engineers have gained a lot of experience. This company has more than 50 years of experience in motorsport and 27 years in F1. In addition, the company has acquired a great deal of knowledge in the field of aerodynamics thanks to the construction of the company’s own wind tunnel, one of the most advanced in Europe. Sauber cooperates with Alfa Romeo in the development of several prototypes and recently participated in the production of the aerodynamic components of Alfa Romeo’s new GTAm.
