The bodywork, in plastic and polyester, roughly echoed the shapes of the A310, but restyled in a more modern key, thanks to the pencil of Heuliez, the author of the restyling. The GTA was initially offered in two versions: the first was the GTA V6 GT, equipped with the 2,849 cm³ V6 PRV engine, capable of developing 160 HP (120 kW) of maximum power at 5,750 rpm. The top speed was 235 km / h.
