It looks like a GTV6 that has been modified to look ( a bit if you squint a lot) like a brera.

Agreed. But it does look as though it is based partially on the GTV6 or - if you follow the roof line - the GTV Junior.

Penned at Bertone by the look of it.

You can see the styling similarities between Stratos, Miura, Countach, Diablo plus quite a few others too!!

Re: does anyone know what this alfa is?

just been looking it up, it was a 1969 concept designed by Giugiaro, the countach which is very very similar was designed by Gandini for Bertone in 1971

Re: does anyone know what this alfa is?

I never really liked the shape of the Countach, also wasn't it designed by the same bloke who designed the Citroen BX?

Both look very old fashioned nowadays, unlike the Miura which still looks great.

Re: does anyone know what this alfa is?

The Miura, Countach, Stratos and Diablo were all designed by Gandini(mostly while he was working for Bertone). Although he disowned the Diablo after the then Lamborghini owner Chrysler softened its edges. Yes, he designed the BX as well.

Re: does anyone know what this alfa is?

It is a car built by a Malaysian company (Racer-X) design, for a car show


I actually like it, or at least the concept behind it ....it would be nice to see a proper "modernized" 116 series GTV, or even better , a Bertie !!!

Re: does anyone know what this alfa is?

The Iguana up top was a Design study, based on one of the 33 Stradale platforms given to design studios for this purpose by Alfa Romeo. It is currently sitting in the Museo in Arese..... odd paint job on this one, it is sort of a metallic flake, but much more pronounced than "modern" metallic finishes...... stunning car..... here is another one, this time from Pininfarina..... and another.....also n a 33 stradale platform..
