Alfa Giulia GTAm Is a British Favorite

Initiated to celebrate the Italian brand’s centenary year, a recent poll revealed that most British Alfa Romeo fans prefer the Alfa Giulia GTAm. The iconic Alfa, in fact, closely battled the 8C Competizione supercar and finally won with less than one percent more of the vote.

The Alfa Giulia GTAm was derived from the standard 1750 GT Veloce production model, and secured its place in the Alfa Romeo elite by winning the 1970 European Touring Car Championship in the hands of Dutchman Toine Hezemans.

The 8C Competizione - worth more than GBP 123,000 - debuted as a concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003 and went on to be produced in 2008 as a limited edition model of just 500 examples, selling out almost immediately. The car’s name derives from Alfa’s world famous 8 cylinder (8C) engine and the marque’s racing pedigree.

“The Giulia GTAm was a great Alfa and a deserved winner. It’s really interesting to see how people voted in the poll. We all have our favourites which is testament to the fantastic cars Alfa Romeo has produced over the past century,” Alfa Romeo UK Brand Communications manager, Damien Dally, said in a release.

The latest five-door Alfa Giulietta model, which takes styling cues from the iconic 8C Competizione, is now on sale in dealerships across the UK.

The full list of results is as follows: Alfa Giulia GTAm 20.4%; 8C Competizione 19.8%; Alfa Spider Duetto 16.1%; Alfa Giulietta 13.1%; Alfa Sud 11%; Alfa 156 GTA 7.5%; Alfa 159 Alfetta 7.3%; Alfa 8C 2900 B Le Mans 3.4%; Alfa Giulia 1600 Sprint Speciale 1.4%.
