The future Alfa Romeo 159 GTA was caught on video by an amateur. The 159 GTA will go on sale in 2009 and will compete with the BMW M3, Audi RS4 and Mercedes C63 AMG.
Under the hood there will be a 4.3 litre V8 engine built as an evolution of the 4.244 cc GranSport unit. The engine delivers around 440 bhp at 7000 rpm with 505 Nm of torque. And it only weights 183 kg. The very good news about this engine is that with minimum of modifications it can deliver more of 500 hp.
