Geneva's Pininfarina Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta: Funny Name, Seriously Cool Spider Replacement

Pininfarina’s Alfa Romeo spider has debuted in Geneva, and it now has a name: 2uettottanta. Built to commemorate Alfa Romeo’s centenary and Pininfarina’s own 80th birthday, the 2uettottanta spider is an eye-popping look at the gorgeousness that could be a possible roadster from Alfa Romeo to replace the current Spider.

The 2uettottanta is built for “those looking for a mixture of vanity, entertainment, and the pleasure of life in the open air”, and Pininfarina seems to think a production 2uettottanta-based Duetto would go well with a side of 1,750cc turbocharged 4-cylinder (“positioned longitudinally, an obvious reference to the ‘1750 Veloce’ of 1968”). I’m inclined to agree.

Dimensions come in at 1,797 mm wide, 4,212.6 mm long (with a 2,500 mm wheelbase), and 1,280 mm high, putting it square against the Z4, SLK, and Miata.

All that really needs to be said, however, is that you’re doing yourself a disservice by not checking out the images below. Pictures are worth a thousand words, after all.
