Not much is known about Alfa Romeo’s clandestine 6C Supercar at this point but knowing that the brand’s future is electric, this may be the last piston-powered model. Talk about going out with a bang.
Rumour has it (a phrase that will come up a fair amount in the next few hundred words) that Alfa Romeo is taking a step into the past to honour their storied nameplate before delving into a very different future. What is meant by this is that it may rebirth the legendary ’33’ badge with its supercar, which will arrive on the 30th of this month as potentially the last piston-powered model from the Italian firm.
Now, the 113-year-old brand has a healthy collection of models to source inspiration from, which is no exaggeration but the platform underneath is rumoured to be from Italian stablemate Maserati. If true, it would mean that its platform would be the same as the MC20 but rumours report that it would incorporate a hybridized version of the potent and sonorous Quadrifoglio motor.
This all means it could deliver somewhere around 522 kW and 600 kW! In the context of Maserati’s compact and lightweight MC20, it would likely be a machine to be reckoned with! All of this is unlikely to come cheap though, independent Alfa Romeo publication Alfattiude reports that production will be strategically limited to 33 units and cost around €1 million for each.
Now, we have only had the most subtle of teasers from Alfa Romeo displaying what is likely the Scudetto detailing, but project of Juan Carlos Trejos displays a similarly proportioned MC20 derivative wearing Alfa styling. The project which went live a few days ago is titled “Alfa Romeo Racing Concept”.
Personal Project I did to showcase a next gen racing car from Alfa Romeo where i tried to implement classic design and blend it with contemporary and get a very entertaning shape, also with congruent aerodynamics and even implementing active front aero flaps. – Trejos
Being unofficial, it is unlikely the model being unveiled on the 30th of August will look like this. We will have to wait and see.
