Stunning Alfa Romeo 6C Vision Gran Turismo Study Will Leave You Drooling

From 1927 to 1954 Alfa Romeo called all its six-cylinder cars 6C and those were some glorious times for the Italian brand.

But could the Alfa Romeo 6C make a comeback? Well, the brand’s moves in recent years seem to suggest that. First, the Italians revived the 8C nameplate with the limited-run 8C Competizione and Spider built between 2007 and 2010. Then, earlier this year the company announced the 8C would make a comeback in 2022 as a mid-engined hybrid supercar.

Considering that Alfa Romeo also invented the 4C lightweight sports car in 2013, the 6C would look like a logical addition to its stable of thoroughbreds. Unfortunately, while there were many rumors over the years about the return of the iconic nameplate, Alfa officials never confirmed them.

The last time Alfa Romeo used “6C” in a sentence was in 2014 when it released preliminary sketches (above) of a virtual concept called 6C Biposto Vision Gran Turismo. Interestingly, the carmaker didn’t follow through on that project and the concept never made it to the Gran Turismo 6 video game.

Well, Italian designer Gaspare Conticelli decided it was time to right that wrong. He set out to design a 6C Vision Gran Turismo study for Alfa Romeo. We don’t know about you, but the speedster looks absolutely breathtaking from where we’re standing. Striking features include the split windshield, transparent engine cover and intricate aerodynamics.

The fact that Mr. Conticelli’s LinkedIn profile says he previously worked as a designer for Alfa Romeo and Maserati gives the project a semi-official status. It certainly looks as if it had Alfa Romeo’s stamp of approval. If we were to speculate, we’d say this is the continuation of Alfa Romeo’s 2014 project. Or at least it should be.

      Right, I was thinking Supra!

        It could be a take on the Alferi since dude worked on with Maserati.

  • Gorgeous car… but could be any italian car.

  • NICE.

    Really nice job. I especially like the use of aero ducting through the front fascia while retaining the Alfa triangular grille.

    That said, FCA is nuts for even having the 4C and 8C while other brands are starving for product. Low volume cars like that make no sense when brands like Chrysler have only 2 models (and likely, soon only 1) and popular Dodges (and the Grand Cherokee) are still riding on a platform that has roots dating back to a nearly 2 decade-old Mercedes.

    FCA needs to do one thing, and one thing only. Invest all their resources in building the most reliable cars on the planet, and show the world when they do. Otherwise, it won’t matter how good the product, people won’t buy it if it has MOPAR and Fiat/Alfa levels of reliability. They need to step up their game, and they need people to know it.

      True, but its nice!

    It may be “stunning”, but it’s also a Ferrari Rossa rip-off

  • Larry Qualls

    I mean, I guess it’s nice….some cool bits. Other than the clover, doesn’t have Alfa design language. I do like the split windshield. Shrink wrap that 8 and you’ll have a winner! That thing was beautiful

    This is what I thought of. Only this Mustang concept actually looks more like an Alfa than this Alfa concept.
