The Alfa Romeo GTA was a series of lightened race cars built by Alfa Romeo starting in 1965. Based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the GTA saw numerous guises with different engines and specifications, such as the GTA 1600 Junior, GTA 1900, GTA 2000, and GTAm. The GTA had aluminum outer body panels instead of steel, magnesium alloy wheels, clear plastic side windows, an aluminum rear upper control arm, different door handles and quarter window mechanisms, and lightweight interior trim. The engine had a new double ignition cylinder head (called twin plug, later in the eighties the system was called twin spark) cylinder head with a Marelli distributor from a Ferrari Dino, 2-barrel 45 mm Weber carburetors instead of 40 mm and magnesium camshaft cover, sump, timing cover and bell housing. The transmission gear ratios were closer than standard and the gears were machined for lightness and quicker shifting. This car came to The Wilson Collection in 2015 as a 1967 Alfa Romeo Sprint GTV and underwent extensive work and modifications at the owner's request with a primary focus on engine upgrades and livery changes.
