The concept cars built based of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale chassis (Part-1)

Now we talking about beautiful cars made by Alfa Romeo which is also famous in the 1960s, namely Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, this car known as a road-legal version of the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 racing car. At that time, this car was also recognized as one of the world's most beautiful cars. This car model was built as many as 18 units from 1969 to 1971.

As we all knew, five units of 33 Stradales were made into concept cars by three Italian coachbuilders, such as Pininfarina which built 1968 Alfa Romeo P33, 1969 Alfa Romeo 33/2 Coupé Speciale, and 1971 Alfa Romeo Cuneo (made in the same chassis as the Roadster P33).

As well as two other concepts built by Italdesign named Alfa Romeo Iguana and the other is Bertone with a car called Alfa Romeo Carabo in 1968, and 1976 Alfa Romeo Navajo.

And here are 3 concept cars made into concept cars by Pininfarina.

1. Alfa Romeo P33 Roadster
The first car produced was the Alfa-Romeo P33 Roadster which was built in 1968 and was first displayed at Turin Motorshow in November 1968. This concept car uses a V8 mid-mounted engine.

The P33 Roadster featured a wedge-shaped design, a large overhead spoiler, or aerofoil positioned just behind the cockpit and "beetle-wing" doors, and the car was painted in white with the interior and aerofoil in brown.

2. Alfa Romeo 33/2 Coupé Speciale
The next car is the Alfa Romeo 33/2 Coupé Speciale or commonly known as 33.2. The car was first introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1969. One design that stands out is the pop-up lights and hydraulic butterfly doors.

This 2-door beautiful coupé was designed by Leonardo Fioravanti and said that the design was influenced by the Ferrari 250 P5 concept shown a year earlier at Geneva.

And the 33/2 Coupé Speciale is based on the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale chassis No. 750.33.115 and bore a striking yellow paint.

3.  Alfa Romeo Cuneo
It is thought P33 Roadster's body was later removed by Pininfarina and replaced with the 33 Spider Cuneo design that debuted in January 1971 at the Brussels Motor Show. The Alfa Romeo 33 Spider Cuneo was a Paulo Martin-designed concept used a fully functional 230 horsepower 2-liter V8 engine and weighs just 1,400 lbs.

It was shaped like a racing powerboat and sported an aerofoil just behind the cockpit that also served as a roll bar and oil radiator. The headlights were grouped into a single cluster on the bonnet, with a similar cluster at the rear enclosing the tailpipes.
Despite the remarkable end result, the bodywork was dismantled shortly after the show over. (Jump to the next part.) *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1 | OLD CONCEPT CARS | DRIVETRIBE
