Re: Does a FERRARI 330GTS look like an Alfa Spider.

Hmm I do see where you're coming from but it reminds me of an incident when my daughter was a child she came running into the house all excited shouting....

"Daddy, daddy, I've just seen a dog just like our Zippy except it had long legs, was a different colour and had a tail............"

Re: Does a FERRARI 330GTS look like an Alfa Spider.

the ferrari 330 gts is based on the ferrari 275 chassis.
the alfa spider was built on the giulia 105 chassis.

so they dont share any genes, similarities are only cosmetic. i would have expected them to share a parent since they both came out at roughtly the same time and they do look similar.

Re: Does a FERRARI 330GTS look like an Alfa Spider.

Yes, they look similar but a lot of cars back then looked similar. Still, a lot of cars look similar these days too, so I don't know if it really means anything.

Re: Does a FERRARI 330GTS look like an Alfa Spider.

Pininfarina is shrew business man. He often knocks out one shape then sells it to a couple of car companies. Remember the Alfa 164? He sold that to Peugeot as the 405. They were were well miffed when Alfa launched the 164. But he then hood-winked Peugeot for a second time, selling them the shape as the 605!

Also, check out the Lancia Aurelia Spider, and other Alfa spiders of that era, for more Xerox moments.

Re: Does a FERRARI 330GTS look like an Alfa Spider.

To the uninitiated, maybe yes; To the initiated, NO!
Family resemblance comes from the same distinctive design-house.
To expand the point, do you think the Alfa 156 looks like a Morris Ital, or the Aston Martin DB4Z looks like an Alfa SZ? I think not.

Yes, same basic proportions. Could be two different versions of one car. The Ferrrari looks prettier!

Re: Does a FERRARI 330GTS look like an Alfa Spider.

Those who are voting no are being very pedantic

They are not the same but they are very similar Some of the lines are almost identical and some are quite different. A quick glance at the front and you could mistake one for the other.

So ... Yes but not exactly

Pretty much do not care ... the Ferrari is stunning, the Alfa has character, love them both... and yes, they do look similar, but not quite...
