In 2018, Alfa Romeo announced the return of the GTV and 8C models, but both projects were soon canceled even though there were preliminary announcements and tentative technical specifications. The GTV was supposed to be a four-seater with a 50:50 weight distribution, all-wheel drive and an engine of over 600 hp.
Even more exciting was the announcement of the 8C – a coupe with a centrally located engine, a carbon monocoque chassis and an electric motor for the front axle. At that time, Alfa Romeo announced a power of over 700 HP and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds. After all, only the Giulia GTA/GTAm reached series production.
Before Alfa becomes an all-electric brand later this decade, the Italian company has decided to create a new sports model. Company boss Jean-Philippe Imparto said the new sports machine will be officially approved in a few months, possibly as early as March 2023.
The details of that vehicle are currently unknown, but it is unlikely that Stellantis will invest in the development of a car with a large displacement SUS engine. It is possible that the 2.9-liter biturbo unit from the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrofoglio will be used.
In GTA-badged sedans, that engine produces 540PS and 600Nm of maximum torque. It is not clear whether there is a possibility to combine this engine with an electric unit in a hybrid drive.
