F1 Driver Valtteri Bottas Acquires A Rare Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm
March 14, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
Valtteri Bottas, a Formula 1 racer, is fitting in at Alfa Romeo. He is currently driving more than just the team’s competition vehicle in his second season with the organisation. At the Stellantis & You Showcase in Turin, Italy, Bottas picked up his own Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm. F1 General Cristiano Fiorio and Alfa Romeo President Jean-Philippe Imparato attended the event.
The car has a roll bar, racing seatbelts, and only two seats.
The Giulia GTA and even hotter GTAm were introduced by Alfa Romeo more than two years ago to commemorate the Giulia GTA’s past, which influenced more than just the moniker of the new vehicle
. The Giulia GTA’s speed and handling were enhanced by the Italian manufacturer by removing 221 pounds from the Quadrifoglio model. Even the side and back glass in the GTAm are made by the firm out of Lexan.
The sedan’s 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant is from Alfa. Alfa modified the exhaust tone with an Akrapovi titanium setup, which allowed the engine to produce 533 horsepower when it first appeared.
Alfa engineers used their connection to Sauber Engineering to incorporate an active front splitter into the car, which the firm claimed could hit 62 mph in 3.6 seconds.
The GTA and GTAm vary in only a few, but important, ways. The more desirable model, a GTAm, has a new proprietor in Bottas.
Only two seats, a roll bar, and six-point seatbelts are equipped with the GTAm. Additionally, it is permissible for use on public streets. Alfa added a bigger front spiller and a carbon fibre back wing to the GTAm to further distinguish it from the other versions in terms of styling.
The vehicle includes a tonne of racing equipment that Bottas doesn’t need. Alfa provides GTA and GTAm customers with a racing outfit, complete with mittens and sneakers, and a helmet with a GTA livery. Bottas undoubtedly has his own group. Alfa only intended to make 500 units total of the GTA and GTAm.
This weekend, the Finnish racer will compete in Saudi Arabia’s second season-opening event. In Bahrain late last month for the F1 season debut, Bottas came in ninth. He finished the 2022 season in 10th position, far behind Fernando Alonso, who is now an Aston Martin driver and finished in ninth.
