The Alfa Romeo GTA is a coupé automobile manufactured by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1965 to 1971. It was made for racing (Corsa) and road use (Stradale). In 1962, the Alfa Romeo Giulia, internally called the "Series 105" was introduced. The name of the car evolved from Giulia Sprint GT to Giulia Sprint and to GTJ (Junior) and GTV (Veloce) in the late 1960s.
At the time, Alfa was very active in motorsport. Autodelta, the racing division of Alfa, developed a car for competition that closely resembled to the roadgoing model. These cars were named GTA instead of GT, the 'A' standing for "Alleggerita", Italian for lightweight. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA was produced first in 1965 as a 1600 (1570 cc). The GTA automobiles were also manufactured in either street (Stradale) or pure race (Corsa) trim. The GTA had aluminium outer body panels instead of steel, magnesium alloy wheels and clear plastic side windows. The engine had a new double ignition cylinder head (called twin plug, later in the eighties the system was called twin spark) cylinder head with a Marelli distributor from a Ferrari Dino, 45 mm carburetors instead of 40 mm and magnesium camshaft cover, timing cover and bell housing. Dry weight of the Giulia Sprint was approximately 1,640 pounds (740 kg). In stradale form this car boasted approximately 113 hp (85 kW). In full race form this engine could produce up to 170 hp (130 kW). For homologation 500 cars were made for racing and road use.
