Presentation of 3 new cars
Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce ’67
Alfa Romeo’s iconic high-performance coupe of the 1960s.
The first generation Giulia range, sold from the 1960s to the 1970s, was a huge hit for Alfa Romeo. When the Giulia was launched in 1962, it was initially only available as a 4-door, but a coupe version was soon added to the range in 1963. This first coupe was called the Sprint GT. It was designed by a young Giorgetto Giugiaro, who at the time worked at Carrozzeria Bertone. With a shape made up of smooth lines and soft curves, as well as a distinctive edge at the front, it has retained many admirers over the years. The car is equipped with a 1.6-liter DOHC in-line engine. Producing 104.5 hp. and 14.2 kgf/min of torque, it accelerated the lightweight 950 kg body to 111.8 mph. The Giulia Sprint GT has become extremely popular as a high-performance coupe thanks to its compact, lightweight body that delivers excellent handling along with a sports car engine. It became a long-running model with many names and detail options, and was produced until 1977.
Landscaping by Maverick Auto Company
A wonderful hot rod with 1200 hp, tucked into a nostalgic body.
The SEMA show is held every November in Las Vegas, USA. At this world’s largest festival of custom cars, Gran Turismo has selected cars for the SEMA GT Awards; and the 2018 Best in Show winner was the 1971 Ford Maverick by Greening Auto Company (GAC). The Maverick was originally an inexpensive compact coupe built on the Ford Falcon chassis. But GAC turned this Maverick into a monster hot rod that can still be driven around town. On the outside, the lowered ground clearance and flared fenders are the first thing to catch your eye, but the biggest highlight is under the hood. The engine inside is Ford’s famous 7-liter small-block Windsor V8. Combined with not one, but two turbochargers, it is said to produce up to 1,200 hp. But this is not just an uncontrollable horse, switching the engine control logic will allow you to cruise leisurely around town. In the spring of 2019, this Maverick entered the top speed competition, setting a record of 202.748 mph (approx. 202.6 mph). This is a rare model where nostalgia and advanced technology meet.
Nissan GT-R NISMO (R32) ’90
A homologated model with 500 cars built for Group A racing.
Armed with a Group A-spec RB26DETT engine, four-wheel drive to save power on the road, and a 4WS system to extend the chassis’ capabilities, the BNR32 Skyline GT-R was a model born to win touring car races . Proof of this is the GT-R NISMO, which appeared in its second year of production, a Group A homologated model with a limited production of 500 cars. Compared to the standard GT-R, the GT-R NISMO features fins above the front grille to increase airflow into the engine compartment for cooling, as well as air intakes in the front bumper. To improve aerodynamic performance, the rear end of the side sills are equipped with protectors that straighten the air flow around the rear tires. A small rear spoiler was added, and the turbines were changed from ceramic to metal. The exhaust manifold was specially redesigned for this car, and to reduce weight, the air conditioning, audio system and rear wipers were omitted, making the car 30 kg lighter than the base model. The GT-R NISMO has won the top touring car class in Japan as well as many other famous endurance races in Europe and Australia. As a result, he is well known for wreaking havoc in Group A races around the world.
