Sauber Engineering know-how hits the track in Imola with Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm
Sauber Engineering helped bring an icon of Italian design, the new Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm, to one of the most historical venues of Italian motorsport, the Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari in Imola.
The Giulia GTAm, the latest supercar by Alfa Romeo, was the special guest of the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN team in the pit lane, alongside drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi – whose race suits bear the Biscione insignia of the Italian marque.
The Giulia GTAm doesn’t share just the branding with its motorsport cousin, the C41: the new Alfa Romeo sedan embodies the know-how generated in over 50 years at the highest levels of racing. Sauber Engineering, part of the Sauber Group, have been directly involved in the design, optimisation and production of the carbon fibre components in the Giulia GTAm. Sauber’s expertise was focused on parts with the highest aerodynamic impact, such as the new front bumper and adjustable front splitter, the side skirts, the diffuser, the GTA’s spoiler and the GTAm’s aerowing.
Sauber Engineering’s expertise helped apply Formula One technology to high-end road cars, with the company’s know-how in lightweight carbon fibre parts a crucial element of this collaboration. It’s a partnership that benefitted the end product – something that can be applied to many other sectors of the market, in which Sauber Engineering is playing an increasingly major role.
