And only 22 will be made.
The Ferrari-sourced 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that powers the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a fantastic engine. But what if you prefer the retro styling of classic Alfa Romeos? Germany's Emilia Auto is combining the best worlds - and the result is the spectacular Emilia GT Veloce. Developed in collaboration with VELA Performance, this stunning restomod is a modern take on the Alfa Giulia GT from the 1960s.
To build the GT Veloce, Emilia Auto painstakingly restores the bodywork of an original Giulia GT, which is then built onto a new spaceframe. To modernize the gorgeous grand tourer, the company fits a bespoke hood, new headlights, and taillights, and flared fenders.
The doors, trunk lid, front wings, and front and rear bumper are also replaced with new carbon fiber components. Although not every panel is original, Emilia Auto has ensured the Giulia GT's elegant proportions, lines and curves are retained.
At the heart of the Emilia GT Veloce is the Giulia Quadrifoglio's 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 good for 505 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF sending power to the rear wheels. Speaking of which, the restomod rides on custom 19-inch alloy wheels. To help the Giulia GT cope with all that extra power, the restomod is upgraded with an independent suspension setup with double wishbones at the front, a multi-link rear axle, and KW coilovers at all four corners. Brembo brakes provide better stopping power.
With a curb weight of 2,755 pounds, the Emilia GT Veloce is lighter than the Giulia Quadrifoglio, so it should be even quicker.
Unlike the original Giulia GT, the restomod features modern assists such as ABS and traction control. Modern luxuries such as air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, and a multimedia system can also be found inside the interior.
For now, the Emilia GT Veloce is being shown in render designs, but we can't wait to see the result when the project is completed. Emilia plans to reveal the first completed modern Giulia GT in the second half of 2022. Only 22 of these beauties will be built, each costing around €400,000 ($474,100). Sure, you can buy a Giulia Quadrifoglio for a lot less, but it won't look as gorgeous as this.
