When your day job requires you to race at high speeds around tracks behind the wheel of an F1 race car, many are left wondering what cars are used as daily drivers. For many Formula 1 team drivers, garage spaces are filled with desirable models from their respected auto manufacturers. Alfa Romeo F1 driver Valtteri Bottas is celebrating new car day as the Italian sports car brand invites him to its Stellantis &You showroom in Turin to collect his new ride. Bottas becomes 1 of 500 lucky owners to receive the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, a collector’s example inspired by the winning and unforgettable 1965 forerunner.
The Giulia GTA embodies a strategy focused on lightweight design, improved aerodynamics, and outstanding performance. Adopting Alfa Romeo’s 2.9L Bi-Turbo V-6 from the Quadrifoglio, the Giulia GTA has been upgraded to generate over 540 horsepower to its rear wheels. Valtteri expresses his gratitude and excitement for the opportunity by saying “I’m clearly a lifelong car enthusiast. But most of all I love the Alfa Romeo brand. It is an honor for me to be an ambassador of the brand and now to become a customer, an owner of one of the 500 Giulia GTAs.” With the limited-edition Alfa Romeo in the hands of a winning F1 driver, we are excited to see Valtteri Bottas lay down some hot laps very soon.
