Giulia GTAm tops poll of favourite Alfas

With more than 70 models in its 100 year history, it came down to a battle between two iconic Alfas in a poll of fans’ favourites, set up to celebrate the Italian marque’s centenary year.

And it was the Alfa Giulia GTAm that came top of the poll, beating the 8C Competizione supercar with less than 1% more of the vote.

The votes for the poll were collected from admirers and owners – known as Alfisti – who submitted photos of their Alfas to the website.

The GTAm and Alfa’s current supercar, the 8C Competizione, led the way against a shortlist of classics including the 2900 B Le Mans, Alfasud and the 156 GTA.

The Alfa Giulia GTAm, which is derived from the standard 1750 GT Veloce production model, secured its place in the Alfa Romeo elite by winning the 1970 European Touring Car Championship.

The 8C Competizione debuted as a concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003 and went on to be produced in 2008 as a limited edition model of 500 examples and selling out almost immediately. The car’s name derives from Alfa’s world famous 8 cylinder (8C) engine and the marque’s racing pedigree.

The Alfa Spider Duetto, widely regarded as a design classic, finished in third place. This car was first launched in 1966.

The latest five-door Alfa Giulietta model, which takes styling cues from the iconic 8C Competizione, is now on sale in Europe.


  • Alfa Giulia GTAm 20.4%
  • 8C Competizione 19.8%
  • Alfa Spider Duetto 16.1%
  • Alfa Giulietta 13.1%
