Alfa Romeo’s recently unveiled 33 Stradale has been heralded as one of the most beautiful cars to come out of the modern era and now Alfattitude has gotten under its skin and spoken to those responsible for its design. Watch here and take an intimate look at the Turinese Supercar.
With some sultry performance on offer, in both EV or 462 kW V6 form, Alfa Romeo’s 33 Stradale’s performance has more often than not dominated news headlines however it stems from a much more romantic history, borrowing design elements with its namesake from the 1960s. Alfattitude has now spoken to its chief designers Alessandro Maccolini and Inna Kondakova to get a better understanding of the design choices that were made in order to honour its beautiful predecessor.
As a recap, the latest entry into Alfa Romeo’s elite stables will be produced in highly limited numbers with only 33 expected to come to life in either EV or V6 format depending on owner preference. Speaking of which, all have already been accounted for which means this won’t be added to a private collector’s garage anytime soon.
Despite offering two types of powertrain, it is expected that the vast majority, if not all, will be V6-powered. Under the bonnet in this case would be a twin-turbocharged 3,0-litre V6 engine rated at 462 kW while torque figures have not been listed but are expected around 600 N.m Shifting is handled by an eight-speed dual-clutch DCT which is channelled to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential
The silent EV option would be motivated by a 560 kW electrified powertrain with 1 350 N.m. Range for the model is similar to the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore at 450 km on a WLTP cycle. Both models are rumoured to have a 0-100 km/h time of less than three seconds and a top speed of 333 km/h.
