Alfa Romeo has reportedly given the production green light to an all-new sports car dubbed the 6C.
Tuning company Pogea Racing, which has decades of experience working with Alfa Romeos, claims to have received word from a trustworthy source that a new Alfa sports car is in the pipeline. It’s believed that it will launch in early 2020 following a public reveal later this year or during 2019.
Pogea claims that the source is “very deep into the decisions of the management of Alfa Romeo”. We’ve reached out to the Italian carmaker for a comment and will give you an update once we hear back from them.
At this stage, details about the 6C are very limited. However, it is safe to assume that it will be much larger than the lightweight 4C and potentially use the same platform as the Giulia. It seems possible that the vehicle could be similar in size to the Jaguar F-Type and that a 6C Quadrifoglio would very well be the latest Alfa Romeo model to use a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine delivering a touch over 500 hp.
This isn’t the first time reports have surfaced about a potential Alfa Romeo 6C. In fact, we first reported on the possibility of an Italian F-Type rival back in August 2014. At the time, it was suggested the car would arrive in 2017 but that never happened.
