An Alfa Romeo hypercar will likely never see the light of day but we think you’ll agree that if such a car were to hit the market and looked as good as this concept, it could send shock-waves through the industry.
Designer Oscar Johansson is the mastermind behind this Alfa Romeo that he dubs the Concept Stradale. It looks absolutely gorgeous and would be perfectly fitting of an Alfa Romeo badge.
The car has a very low-slung profile and clearly favors styling over practicality. Up front are a pair of huge tunnels that channel air across the vehicle’s underbody and out from the rear diffuser to generate downforce and eliminate the need for a fixed rear wing. Johansson’s design is made all the more beautiful with the pointed nose of the car.
The bodywork seamlessly stretches back from the front end, over the front wheel arches, and swoops its way along the sides where there are small doors with handles that sit flush. The cockpit is low and narrow and covered in black tinted glass. Completing the remarkable look is a simple rear-end with thin horizontal taillights and a third LED brake light this time positioned vertically. There is also a large diffuser.
While the chance of an Alfa Romeo hypercar becoming a reality is incredibly thin, we do know the car manufacturer is working on a successor to the 8C. The car will feature a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, a twin-turbocharged engine positioned between the axles, a front-mounted electric motor, and have more than 700 hp. In typical FCA fashion, this model isn’t expected to arrive until 2023.
