To sit along side the rare and expensive 33 Stradale another concept car was built for the 1967 Expo in Montreal - a nickname which stuck.

I have been pondering the styling looking through Alfa Romeo’s back catalogue.

Geneva 4c

To much fanfare Alfa Romeo has stunned Geneva with the Alfa Romeo 4c concept and has stated it will make production with a target date in late 2012.

Concept car inspiration

Automotive News Europe are reporting the Alfa 4C design concept will draw inspiration from legendary 33 Stradale.

They published computer generated images from Italian magazine Quattrotuote claiming a close match to the concept due to appear on Alfa Romeo's stand at the Geneva Motor Show.


Automotive News are reporting that Alfa Romeo will show a concept car at Geneva to rival the Porsche Cayman. The stated aim is to build 4-5,000 a year selling at circa €40,000 it will utilise the 1.7 turbo engine from the Giulitta Cloverleaf tuned to “in excess of  250bhp“ and weighing in at 850kg.

They are also reporting the styling will be Alfa’s own by Centro Stile and the rear wheel drive chassis will be technology developed by Dallara.

Rumours continue

Uk magazine Autoexpress is indicating the new car will see the return of the legendary GTA badge. Reports suggest that the Italian manufacturer is set to unveil a two-seat coupe concept at Geneva, reviving the GTA badge last seen on the firm’s 147 and 156 models, rather than the currently favoured "Quadrofoglio" (four leaf clover) badge for the hot models.

Autoexpress went on to speculate that the 4C GTA will use the four-cylinder 1750 TBi, uprated to around 260bhp.

Rumours - Alfa Romeo concept car have posted teasers of the 4C concept looking like a model or a computer rendering. They go on to suggest it as “Alfa Romeo 1750SS”  but most other sources suggest it will be known as the 4c, a little brother to the 8c Competizione.
