The Nuvola

1996 Alfa Romeo Nuvola (I.DE.A) - Concepts

that's what actually got me into Alfa's in the first place. at the Alfa Romeo exhibition in the RDS quite a few years ago now. Even still have the exhibition book with all the pictures in it.

1954 Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva. 1954!?!?! 250 GTO-esqe (front-end anyway) almost 10 years before the daddy came out.

Why did this not make it into production - such a sin

Cuore Sportivo I think it was called, I was at that too, some amazing metal on display. It'd be great to bring it to Ireland again.

I am struggling to find an image of the twin concepts that went into production as the 916 GTV and Spider......I remember seeing them in Car magazine, possibly at Geneva and being absolutely knocked over by them.

cheers - the timing would suggest the Proteo but it doesn't quite ring true for me........I have a mental image of two cars, at a motor show, which were basically a GTV and a Spider in silver or possibly white - they looked absolutely amazing. Proteo seems a little long and a bit slab-sided.

Maybe I dreamt it.

Yea.. there was a bit of cross breading going on alright.... The Navajo looked like the love child of a Delorean mixed with a Sinclair C5...


*** showing age now of course...

/anorak_start

EDIT: John Delorean was considering using an Alfa engine in the DCM-12.... I think there was emission issues for the US market.... don't remember the details....

And then there's the current Alfa Romeo Bertone Pandion Concept, which looks as though it was designed by someone who had just sat through a Battlestar Galactica marathon
