Alfa Romeo has some big plans for its future models and one of these will be the development of the Giulia sedan, and its high performance GTA version. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but according to the guys from Auto Express, the upcoming Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA will become a rival for models such as the BMW M3, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, the Audi RS4 or similar models from Cadillac, Jaguar and so on.
