2003 Alpha-Romeo GT Coupe

Posted on by 1

A perfect balance of passion and rationality, emotion and safety, style and versatility: Alfa GT, the coupé that offers maximum driving pleasure with all the elegance and comfort of a saloon with exceptionally generous interior space. A car that makes dreams come true. Engines that deploy superlative automotive technology to deliver searing performance, fuel economy and unparalleled flexibility, also in city traffic.The model, designed by the Bertone Style Centre, will be appreciated for its original, pleasing styling that promises all the satisfaction of a sporty drive with full respect for brand traditions. The Alfa GT also succeeds in packing the results of Alfa’s superlative engineering heritage into a shape inspired by a sense of style and flair that could only be Italian. The stylists were also able to call on a great Alfa Romeo tradition that has brought us models that remain benchmarks for the category: from the 1900 SS to the Giulietta Sprint, from the Alfetta to the Giulia Sprint.

Exterior

With a length of 4.48 metres, width of 1.76 metres and a height of 1.37 metres, the Alfa GT Coupé is aggressive and compact (its wheelbase is 2596 millimetres), with a shape marked by certain distinctive traits that define its strong personality and render it immediately recognisable as an Alfa. Hence the designers’ decision to go for smooth, clean motifs and shapes marked by an unmistakable sense of Italian flair. The result is a strong, spare front end dominated by an Alfa Romeo family resemblance encapsulated by the distinctive three-lobed motif bearing a shield that is slightly larger in size than at present. The entire car appears to grow from this point to combine a slight edge of styling aggression with outstanding elegance of form. This impression is reinforced by two side air intakes and light clusters that are objects of beauty in their own right.

Dashing and solid but also dynamic and sturdy. It took a clever balancing act to wed such disparate features. This contrast is evident in the Alfa GT’s profile where a side shelf unmistakably conveys the idea of a car that is agile but also anchored to the ground. And more.

The taut lines that meet at the rear and the small area of glass (compared to the large expanse of metal at the side) add elegance and also sturdiness.

The slightly raked and tapering tail design is brand new and paired with large, integral bumpers. The rear window is drop-shaped, while the light clusters are embedded in the body to create an attractive wraparound look.

Alfa GT has the looks of a coupé but is, at the same time, a luxury saloon with surprisingly generous inside space and maximum comfort, shaped to cater to different requirements and to adapt effortlessly and with great versatility to different driving, space and habitability requirements. The elegant personality of a de luxe saloon is reflected in the generous space available to the driver and passengers: five real seats for refined, exclusive habitability, with a level of sound-proofing that exalts the pleasure of driving in maximum silence. With Alfa GT, trip comfort soars to new heights, rewarding those seeking the emotions of sporty driving without having to compromise on comfort. 

 
The sporting lines of the coupé and the elegant environments of the saloon hide an unexpected level of flexibility. A 320 dm3 luggage compartment, surprisingly large for a sports car that, exploiting the many different combinations of the split-fold seats, mushrooms to 905 dm3. A fully utilizable load platform: a new personality with the leitmotiv of habitability and maximum ease of use. A character able to cater to all needs, a different personality for each situation, a versatile identity that always amazes and meets all requirements.

Interior

 
The fascination of vintage Alfa Romeos, combined with the strength of the present consisting of passion and elegance. That is the spirit of the Alfa GT.With an uncompromising personality, strong and decisive, the Alfa GT offers a driving pleasure that you can see, touch and experience. The dashboard has a special satin-finish, while the interior upholstery is soft to the touch and luxurious to the eye. The instrumentation, with its clear background, combines racing design and maximum visibility. There is also a sporting touch to the steering wheel and gearbox, ensuring the driver of total control.And as soon as it starts to move, it provides new thrills: the Alfa GT dominates the road in total safety, with the performance of a genuine coupé, together with comfort and spaciousness that make every journey an experience in comfort.
Alfa GT: a pure expression of Alfa Romeo sportiness and elegance. 

A new idea of comfort: the freedom to choose materials and elegant combinations to match one’s personality. In a choice of three trim levels to create the perfect environment. Progression, with seats and panels in Alfatex®, the technical cloth patented by Alfa Romeo that garantees comfort and elegance. Distinctive, with seats and upholstery in black, blue, red, tan or gray leather. For both trim levels, there is a choice of three interior finishes: sporty black, elegant black and gray two-tone, and the bright single-tone gray. Lastly, there is Luxury, the most exclusive trim level with leather seats and gear lever, and door panels and dashboard in full grain leather. Then there is the Bose® Hi-Fi system with CD and MP3 player, dual-zone climate control system, Cruise Control, on-board info-telematic system, radio and telephone controls on the steering wheel, and a multi-function display providing all the information the driver needs, just when it is needed.

Safety

 
The focal element of Alfa GT’s unequalled safety is the torsional rigidity of the bodyshell which helps to guarantee maximum stability and road-holding. Around its progressive deformation bodyshell, Alfa GT features an array of top class equipment: the FPS (Fire Prevention System) with tank-locking valve and inertia switch that cuts off the flow of fuel in the case of impact, seat belts with inertia reel and load limiter at the front and rear, fully collapsible, adjustable steering column, anti-intrusion bars in the doors, energy-absorbing internal trim that already complies with stringent USA standards regarding flammability. And 6 standard airbags including two newly-designed window bags that inflate more quickly and open from the top down in order to protect the head of the front passenger. Maximum safety in order to really appreciate the intense emotions of brilliant driving.
