In-game description[edit | edit source]

"The Giulia race car that dominated Group 2 racing in the '60s."

Until the beginning of the 1990s, Alfa Romeo ran its own factory racing team called Autodelta. In 1965 Autodelta announced the Giula Sprint GTA 1600, produced to compete in the Group 2 category.

While this GTA was based on Giula components, it received extensive tuning. For example, the 1,570 cc DOHC inline-4 engine's carburetor was replaced with side draft Webers of 1 inches, and the compression ratio was raised to 9.7. As a result, output was increased to 113 BHP. Furthermore, in order to make it more lightweight, he exterior body panels were made all aluminum and the suspension arms and wheels were replaced with those made of light alloys or magnesium.

These modifications resulted in the normal weight of just over 1 ton, being reduced to less than 800 kg. With all parts given aerodynamic considerations, an eye opening performance of 115 mph top speed, 0-62 mph acceleration in 8.8 seconds, and 0-3,280 ft. (1000 m) acceleration of just 31 seconds was achieved. Furthermore, the Corsa Spec, tuned to the very limits of this GTA, had an engine output of 167 BHP and a maximum speed of 134 mph.

The Giulia Sprint GTA 1600 demonstrated overwhelming strength in the Group 2 category of the European Touring Car Races, occupying the champion's seat for three consecutive years starting from 1966. At the same time it also participate in the American Trans-Am Series, which contributed to the significant enhancement of Alfa Romeo's sport image.

While official production of the Giulia Sprint GTA 1600 was said to be 500 cars, it is almost certain that more were actually made.
