I like this one, a lot. The only changes I would recommend is to get rid of the excessive fins in the side intake, replace what I'm guessing is the side view mirror with a bigger one up higher, and add two round tail lights inside the beautiful back, to match the two round ones in the front. The doors would have to extend lower on the side to make getting out of the car easier too. You'd probably have to go with heavier framing for rollover protection in the upper cabin area, but as an overall concept, this is beautiful. It's elegant, classy, has a modern feel yet clearly has an Alfa heritage feel to it. Thanks for posting this!

Very cool. Thanks for posting this, Al. I do find the headlights a bit sleepy-looking. I prefer my Alfas wide awake.

It's gorgeous. Can you imagine a supercar you could see it of? Agree about looking my Alfas wide awake btw! Also the trail has a lot of family resemblance....to a dodge charger!
Still, the design eats the Maserati MC20 for breakfast

Easy fix. Instead of a chrome headlight border, make that the DRL element. Remove the sleepy "eye-lid" and change the "inside" of the headlight to be more like the 8C Competizione from the late 2000's , but with modern matrix LED technology. Voil脿! A wide awake Alfa.

Cool.

Too bad it will never be made. I guess there is no risk to a design exercise.

For a real car, get rid of the bubble canopy. Every car that tried that discovered that it cooked its occupants nicely.

I wonder what the price would have been had that car been released with an Alfa Romeo badge, instead of Maserati.

electronically dimmable sunroof has been around from 2002 introduced in Maybach. In 2012 Mercedes SLK also had it as an option.

Beautiful? Yes, absolutely. Elegant? That's not the word I would use. It's more brute than elegant to me. But this is all subjective.
let鈥檚 just split the difference and call it Beautiful Brutness!?馃榾
More and more I鈥檓 liking the fact that MC20 has a lot of downforce without some big gaudy rear wing. The Tipo 33 Stradale didn鈥檛 need no stinky wing either馃榾
Clean!!
