1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo

May, 2017 § Leave a comment

The 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo concept car was created by Marcello Gandini, and was based on one of the most beatiful cars on history the 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. But Alfa had trouble finding buyers due to its price. As a result, five of the Stradale chassis were passed to Italian carrozzerie: two to Pininfarina, one to Italdesign and two to Bertone. One of them, this Carabo with a V8, red-lined at 10,000rpm, and 230bhp.

Carabo is derived from ‘Carabidae’, a family of ground-beetles with a distinctive green and gold colour.

1964 Alfa Romeo TZ Coupe

One of the most desirable Alfas, TZs are considered as Alfa Romeo’s version of Ferrari’s GTO. Only about 112 were built until 1967.

A gorgeous aluminium Zagato coachwork that competed against Ferrari 250 GTOs, Shelby Cobras, and Porsche 904s.

I´ve just realized that gorgeous car has no post for one of the most beatiful cars created in 2000, the 8C Spider.   We have to say thanks to Mr. Wolfgang Egger for designing this car taking some styling cues from 30´s and 40´s Alfa Romeo models.

Enjoy the pics in white…

2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

Alfa has presented the Spider versión of 4C,  as gorgeous as that, but with a new front lights (you can avoid the ugly fly/spyder styled eyes).

A really nice design, it´s good to have Alfa Romeo on the road again, after 2007 8C they keep creating new gorgeous designs.

1970 Alfa Romeo Montreal

Presented in 1960 as a concept car, this Alfa was stylistically different from previous Alfa.  It’s distinguished by its front headlights, a hood duct and nonfunctional slats behind the doors. In a certain way it resembles Lamborghini Miura ‘cos both of them were designed by Marcello Gandini (also Lancia Stratos, Lamborghini Diablo or Countach!)

2012 Carrozzeria disco volante concept

This is the modern version of the 1950′s Alfa Romeo Disco Volante in its 60th anniversary.

A really original design for a modern car, I’m posting pics of the new and the original, so u can compare.

The only thing I don’t like in this car, It’s a kind of disguised 2008 Alfa Romero 8C, and… I’m sorry but I prefer to see the original one.

1952 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spider

June, 2011 § Leave a comment

Another special car from Alfa Romeo, often exploring modernity and futurism in automobile design. This car is very important in Alfa’s history, so it inspired a bronze sculpture to celebrate 100th anniversary of the brand.

Look at this 50’s car… ¿Don’t you think that nowadays designers are too much conservative?
