Re: A GTA should be.....

Rear wheel drive

Light

Powerful

The perfect idea is the Giulia GTA - SA, All Aluminium, rear wheel drive and boosted by oil pressure driven superchargers, no lag and no heavy mechanicals.

Perfection.

Alfa, can we have a modern equivalent...PLEEEAAASSSEEE!!!!!!

Re: A GTA should be.....

GTA is all about being light, and tuned.

So lightweight, with a tuned engine and rear wheel drive.

That weighs next to nothing.

Re: A GTA should be.....

1. Light
2. NA, high revving.
3. Fast but not necessarily extremely powerful if 1 is met.
4. Extremely well setup even for a track.
5. Fun to drive, not necessarily RWD. Could be either FWD, RWD or 4WD. Mind you that RWD and especially 4WD make 1 and 3 harder to achieve.

Re: A GTA should be.....

It has to be light.

I put 4WD as long as it didn't severly compromise "light".

Atmo' engine ideally.. but a turbo/supercharged donkey would not detract from the ethos.

Re: A GTA should be.....

Plain and simple, it should be:
obscene, a complete and absolute hooligan.
About 350 BHP (supercharged 3.5/3.7 V6 - of autodelta origin), 4WD.

That should keep a few happy!

Voted turbo by the way

Crazed Re: A GTA should be.....

Obscene, that sums it up. NA ideally, but if charged in a way that doesn't compromise response or weight (why I mentioned the GTA - SA!!) excellent!

A car that has more than 1 phychological/ sociopathic problem????

One that will make you PAY if you get it wrong???

Are we all saying we want it with teeth????
