Designer Dreams of Alfa Romeo 6C Sports Coupe Concept to Rival Mustangs and Stingrays

|

Alfa Romeo's comeback with the 4C coupe at the Geneva Motor Show next month is a welcome move from the Fiat-Chrysler alliance, but it's only a single model and a limited production one at that.

If the Milanese firm is serious about catching up with the rest of the world, and by that, we mean German, Japanese and even American carmakers; its needs to follow up with more proposals, and especially ones that capture the hearts and souls of car enthusiasts.

Automotive design student at IED Torino Alex Imnadze has just what the doctor ordered with a new conceptual model named the Alfa Romeo 6C that he dropped into our email box earlier today.

Imnadze, who we first heard about on Carscoops through his work for a Lamborghini GT study, dreamed the 6C as a classic sports car with a front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration, designed to compete with American muscle coupes like the top editions of the Ford Mustang (think Shelby), Chevrolet Camaro and even the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

He says that he was inspired by the shapes and lines of production models like the 1948 Alfa Romeo 6C and the modern 8C Competizione, as well as contemporary concepts such as Pininfarina's 2uettottanta.

Hop over the break to check out the pictures in more detail and tell us what you think about the concept and how it could be realized in the comments below.

I like it, the front end could break a little more with the past though.

Wow... This is just beautiful. What a fantastic design. Alfa? Get this guy to work with you lot. You're in need of fresh blood, criative and with skills. Start building cars that stir up blood. Chop chop... Great renderings as well.

What do you think about this other Alfa 6C proposal http://nacho-cuesta.blogspot.com.es/

Why not? It's Italian...Having driven in Italy for six plus years, directional signs, speed limits, and traffic lights are simply "recommendations".

Stunning !!! make it while you have Chrysler in the fold and leverage the Viper V10 for a supped up version ;)

I love out I do see jaguar f type coupe in the rear, still see 8c as well. What needs is a sedan to compete with top end Mercedes. The author is wrong, Alfa's do not have to compete with Chevy's Fords etc... Alfa's are in a totally different class. Chevy Fords Dodges etc compete with Honda, Toyotas, Nissans etc.. Alfa romeo's are more akin to Maserati's and not Volvo or SAABS etc.... Id like to see them create a M5 Sedan for Auto Enthusiasts etc...

Build it on the viper chassis which will make it feasible expense wise for alfa. smc panels like the 4c for light weight. v6turbo 400 hp+ and v8turbo 500 hp+ from maserati. DCT and manual. sub 3000 lbs. 0-60 4-4.5. $40-$70 sweet spot occupied by corvette shelby and not much else. and the interior style that clashes with the 4c would work here. ill take one in red or white.
