The Pininfarina Alfa Romeo concept car has been unveiled at the Geneva motor show.

The concept has been commissioned to celebrate Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary and will also form part of Alfa Romeo’s 100th anniversary celebrations.

Pininfarina has said the two-seater Spyder will be an innovative and modern interpretation of classic Alfa and Pininfarina spiders from the past. It is decribed by the company's CEO as being "the manifesto of our future business".

The concept is one of two special models celebrating Alfa’s century at March’s Geneva show. Bertone will also display a concept, which will be based on the Alfa 8C Competizione supercar.

Both cars are billed purely as prototypes and have not been earmarked for production.

Alfa’s 100th anniversary celebrations will also form the basis of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Re: Pininfarina reveals Alfa concept

I like the look, but sadly I don't see that it will productionise well as a volume car. The sharp creases will never meet pedestrian impact requirements, and the flying buttresses and curved header rail would have to change markedly to accommodate a folding top. The shut lines between bumper and body would probably ruin the look too. 10/10 for style. 2/10 for realism.

It looks great right back to the headrests and then... Has Pininfarina finally lost it? One might think so given the excrutiating bum which leaves the whole thing hugely out of balance. Franco Scaglione would roll in his grave.

It looks like a pontiac solstice with a bodykit. A good design in isolation, but not so good if compared to what has already been mass produced by the industry.
