Alfa Romeo revealed a roadmap in June 2018 which listed GTV and 8C models scheduled to be available by 2022. Unfortunately, an updated version of that image did not include those two products anymore. Instead, they planned for a Giulia Coupe and a mid-engined supercar which is quite disappointing. But, now a new report claims that there still might be a wonderful ICE-powered Romeo before the brand goes all-electric. Car Magazine has confirmed that Alfa Romeo will present a “design study” for a fully-fledged supercar early next year. (Source: Motor1)
Let’s forget that Alfa Romeo shortly sold a Giulia GTA/GTAm with a six-pot pumping out 533 hp while retaining the same torque figures. But, the report doesn’t exclude the possibility of a hybrid powertrain along with a Formula 1 tie-up with Sauber. Expect a carbon fiber monocoque chassis just like the 8C distinctively, also with a potential partnership with Sauber or sister brand Maserati. As per a document released last year by parent company Stellantis, the Italian brand will become purely electric in Europe, North America, and China in 2027.
The next-gen Giulia EV has already been announced, but it might not be the same sophisticated and traditional sedan anymore. While, Alfa Romeo had no issues selling each of the 500 units of the Giulia GTA/GTAm even though they were extremely expensive, reaching €180,000. The finale ICE model would be highly collectible, especially in an irresistible supercar form.
