The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA Coupé is the lightweight version of the more common Giulia Sprint GT. The additional “A” in the name stands for “Alleggerita” – Italian for lightweight. The body panels were all shaped from aluminium instead of the steel used on the GT model, the body was then riveted to the steel unibody to further save weight. The side and rear windows were replaced with perspex and significant amounts of both aluminium and magnesium were used throughout the GTA’s engine and mechanical elements to further reduce its weight to just 1,640 lbs (740 kgs).
