In 2020, Alfa Romeo introduced the Giulia GTA (Gran Turismo Alleggerita) and GTAm (“m” for modified), models which would have a limited production run of 500 units. The GTA and GTAm limited editions were developed to celebrate the marque’s 110th Anniversary and pay tribute to one of the most emblematic automobiles of the brand: the 1965 Giulia GTA.
Following the same guidelines that were followed for the 1965 Giulia GTA, Alfa Romeo engineers strove to improve aerodynamics and handling but above all to reduce weight. These solutions contain a lot of technical know-how thanks to the work of Alfa Romeo and Sauber Engineering, who both operate the Formula 1 Alfa Romeo Racing team together. A new Sauber Areokit was designed for the Giulia GTA with active aerodynamics for added downforce. The Areokit includes an aggressive new front fascia, side skirts, active front splitter, new rear spoiler, as well as a new carbon-fiber rear diffuser with twin-titanium mounted center exhaust and tells you that this isn’t your typical Giulia sedan.
Unfortunately, the 500 units sold out quickly and were never offered to the North American marketplace. It left many enthusiasts disappointed. But now, there is an aftermarket option for Alfisti who wish to give their Giulia the GTA and GTAm look.
Aftermarket company, PariS5GaraGe has created a body kit that looks almost identical to that exterior kit found on the GTAm. The company showed off its first finished prototype earlier this week in some official images taken at Varano de ‘Melegari. The car featured a dedicated livery, done in bright yellow exterior paint.
The body kit introduces a completely redesigned bumper with the typical stylistic features used on the GTA and GTAm. There is no shortage of intakes around the scudetto (little shield in Italian), the hood, and behind the front wheel arches. The large rear wing and the diffuser with central mounted exhaust.
A better look reveals that the rear wing is actually a smaller replica of the original and the exhaust pipes are not the titanium Akrapovič exhaust found on the GTAm. Finally, the set of 20-inch aluminum wheels, which make a good impression at first, but upon closer look lacks the single center nut design found on the ultra-high-performance sedan. Only diehard Alfisti should be able to spot the differences.
As for the car itself, PariS5GaraGe used a Giulia Quadrifoglio as the base of its build. It was chosen due to it being the closest to the performance credentials of the GTA / GTAm they wanted to replicate. Both models, as is known, are equipped with the twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6, for a total power of 505 horsepower for the Quadrifoglio and a good 540 horsepower in the GTA / GTAm variants.

We should note that those prices are for the composite body kit, however, that could change due to the constant cost of supplies rising. Customers can also order their body kits in Kevlar, which will cost about 30% more than the composite body kit. There is the option for the kit to be made of Carbon Fiber, but that should be significantly more expensive.
