Between electric cars and harsh environmental demands, there is still room for petrolhead delight with those so much in vogue today restomods. And the last chapter is written by this Emilia GT Fast, which comes to resurrect the mythical Alfa Romeo Giulia GT Veloce, o GTV.
It is the German firm Emilia Auto that has seen fit to bring this sporty variant of the Giulia presented in 1963 back to life. It is not the only one. For example, Kimera Automobili has done the same with the Lancia 037 on your EVO37. And as in this there is no electrification involved as it happens with other restmod proposals as precisely is Giulia GTe.
In addition, we will not have to wait long to see its final version: the start of production is set for 2022 and the first deliveries scheduled for the end of that year.
Solo 22 units of the Emilia GT Veloce will see the light and will not be cheap: the German specialist has already anticipated that its price will be around 400.000 euros with taxes already included.
With the V6 of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
It is Emilia GT Fast It measures 4.00 m long, 1.86 m wide and 1.34 m high, with a wheelbase of 2,400 mm. On an aesthetic level, it draws on the design of the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTV, albeit with slight adjustments.
For example, him use of materials such as carbon fiber, present in many elements of the bodywork, or a more voluminous bonnet to house the generous engine that gives it life.
And it is that the Emilia GT Veloce moves thanks to the same propeller that mounts the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio: a block V6 biturbo from 2.9 liters what pays 510 CV power and 600 Nm of maximum torque.
In the menu we also find the sequential gearbox ZF eight-speed, which transmits all the force to the rear axle. But also an adjustable suspension, a rear limited-slip differential or Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers at the front and four at the rear and ventilated discs of 360 mm and 350 mm respectively.
For its part, the interior, although it also maintains the classic design in the dashboard panels, the instrumentation or the central tunnel, is also adorned with some Recaro sports bags covered in leather or enjoy benefits that the original did not equip, such as air conditioning.
However, Emilia Auto points out that her main objective of tying the weight of her GT Veloce as short as possible, which promises to be less than 1,250 kg. That is why it is two-seater, since the second row of seats has been eliminated, and they also boast of having limited technological innovations to a minimum because “every gram counts”.
We will therefore not find assistance systems such as cruise control. In fact they boast about it: “Without Autopilot. Only for good hands“Thus, he will have the minimum necessary to be able to be homologated in Europe. Pure passion.
