Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale meets its 2018 Concept
Alfa Romeo’s beautiful 33 Stradale was built for 18 months in the late 1960s, and was one of the exotic cars back in the days. It celebrated its 50th birthday just last year and here comes a re-imagined version of the gorgeous muscle car.
Alfa Romeo’s iconic 33 Stradale was designed by Franco Scaglione, and officially debuted on August 31 1967, on the eve of the Italian F1 Grand Prix in Monza.
Alfa Romeo’s 33 Stradale is considered one of the first supercars and the new design by independent designer Patrick Pieplow has definitely taken that into consideration.
The car’s side design has got dramatic changes from the original version, and the most common feature between the two models are its large headlights. However, the Patrick Pieplow’s 33 Stradale has got some extravagant look with modern LED lighting and racing-inspired yellow tint.
Overall design looks sleek and soft compared to the original muscle version and instead of curves, the recreation is coming with straight lines and aggressive angles. However, the design retained the Alfa Romeo’s customary triangle grille and the glass roof with a bit of modern retouch.
At the back of the car is a pair of taillights that are interestingly connected by a thin, horizontal brake light. Other features you notice is a spoiler that has been incorporated into the rear wheel arches and a large diffuser, both of which give the new model an aggressive, and yet sexy look.
