The Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA twins use the same 2.9-litre Ferrari-derived V6 engine as the Quadrifoglio but power has been upped from 503bhp to 533bhp for a 0-62mph-time of just 3.6 seconds. An Akrapovič titanium exhaust is also fitted, which is much noisier than the Quadrifoglio. Along with the extra power, the GTA weighs less and features aerodynamic additions to further improve performance.

There’s a much wider use of carbon fibre than in the standard car; the GTA gets driveshafts, front wheel arches, a bonnet, front bumper and roof made out of the lightweight material. The GTAm has just two carbon-fibre seats, six-point racing seat belts and a roll cage, and as a result it weighs over 100kg less than the Quadrifoglio. It’s a rival to the £150,000 Jaguar XE SV Project 8.
