Alfa Romeo has always had since their foundation in the automotive world, a reputation of performance and prestige. Hot Wheels has graced their lineup with only a handful of such Italian Gems in diecast form, starting with the Carabo in the 1970s. Hot Wheels in 2016 for their Forza Motorsport Premium car set commemorating the much-beloved racing video game released the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA in the same colours and modifications as the virtual one seen in the Forza Game. The casting features a 'Corsa' (Italian for course, as in a race course) version of the Giulia GTA, which was launched in 1962. The 'A' in GTA stands for 'Allegerita' in Italian, meaning 'lightweight' referring to the lightness of the aluminum (UK: Aluminium) bodywork.
As of 2017, this is the oldest Alfa Romeo Model made by Hot Wheels.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
