Retro-inspired cars seem to be all the rage nowadays, especially since Honda’s announcement that its cute Urban EV Concept will reach the production line.
Rather than directly mimicking the design of the Montreal and simply modernizing it with some alterations, Joo has instead taken certain shapes and elements of the classic Alfa and crafted them onto a crossover with radically different proportions and an even more eye-catching look.
Like any proper Alfa Romeo, the front of the Freccia Concept has a triangular grille. The vehicle also makes do without any other additional intakes in the front fascia, resulting in a clean and simple design. What’s more, there aren’t even any traditional headlights – just thin slits that stretch out from the grille towards the front wheel arches. That’s the joy of designing a car that doesn’t need to meet any safety standards.
The sides of the concept are also particularly intriguing, especially the wheels which incorporate three thick curvaceous and sharp spokes each. While there are no visible side windows, there are gaps in the bodywork that allow for a pair of large doors.
Look towards the C-pillars and you’ll notice a series of sharp fins cut from the bodywork. These cut-outs have been inspired be the C-pillar vents of the Montreal.
And that would nice and dandy for, say, a 2030 crossover, probably with electric power. Provided, of course, that Alfa will be a. alive and b. in the black by then.
