The 60's Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTAm. This series had a few versions based on engine capacity like the 1750 GTAm, 2000 GTAm and the 1300 Junior GTA. The GTA series was originally built by Autodelta. They were all raced with during the 60's and 70's. Mean 200bhp+ machines. I saw these cars on a discovery channel special on Alfas and immediately fell in love. They all have the same body style with slight variations. I think they are all pretty hot.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a nice high resolution picture. Actually, if someone could find one I'd love to have it.

1300 GTA


1750 GTAM

Alfa 1300 GTA:



Visit ultimatecarpage.com for 1750 GTAM pics, they have some really nice pics.


But now that we are in the topic of small Italian classic coupes, let me take liberty to mention the Lancia Fulvia HF, another beautiful little car from the early 70's.

These are three pics from my collection.








Anyone who wants more pics, dont hesitate to ask.


Cheers,
Islero

maxbhp and islero, I have seen those pictures. But thanks a lot for finding them. I want something of the order of 1280x960 pixels for my desktop.

The Fulvia is a great looker. These things are timeless aren't they. They don't make them like this anymore.

Default ALfa Brera ....Beta or Gamma ?

I have always been a worshipper of Italian looks be in car or women , their sharp chiselled features really stands out from the rest of the world . But lately I feel they have been loosing their ground , design seems mixed and confused.This car is an exception its design stands bold and confident . Its lines curvy and sexy . Imagine this car is very cramped in the inside and engine spec isn't very impressive either ....but Topgear has rated this car 4 **** inspite of this .

Cool Car & Emotions

My Experience with car emotions has been limited to Cruze & Optra Magnum while buying my car

Cruze's look to me: I will be your hot looking chick
Optra's look to me: I may not be that hot but I will be loyal partner

I opted for Loyal Partner over hot chick. Result, smaller hole in pocket

Since we are talking Alfas, I feel the 8C has to be mentioned here. The car itself got disappointing reviews from most journos, but what do they know lol, has to me one of the best looking cars of modern times!
Included are pics of a one off model by Zagato based on an 8C, absolutely love it!
