A gorgeous Diva concept of Alfa Romeo

It is undeniable that many beautiful cars are produced by Alfa Romeo, one of the leading Italian automotive manufacturers that attracts the attention of the world's automotive enthusiasts. Did you remember the most beautiful car ever made by this manufacturer named Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale?

And a beautiful car species was re-born by this manufacturer and named Alfa Romeo Diva Concept which was revealed at the 2006 Geneva International Motor Show. This beautiful car was developed in a joint effort between the Fiat Auto’s R&D arm Elasis, the Alfa Romeo’s Centro Stile, and Franco Sbarro’s famous Espera automotive design. It was also built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Espera design school.
2006 Alfa Romeo Diva Concept used a 3.6-liter 'Busso' V6 engine mated with a semi-automatic Selespeed gearbox, which features six forward speeds and a paddle-shift feature mounted on the steering column. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2yrsI89)
The Diva Concept was built on an Alfa Romeo 159 chassis, and beneath that curvaceous body, panels were a heavily modified 159 chassis reinforced with carbon-fiber, suspension, and brake systems that were electronically adjustable and a 3.6-liter 'Busso' V6 engine.

And thanks to a clever new exhaust system and a semi-automatic Selespeed gearbox, which features six forward speeds and a paddle-shift feature mounted on the steering column made the engine developed the power of 290 horsepower and propelled the car from 0–60 mph in five seconds, which said is more than enough for a 1,100 kg weighted car.

While its exterior appearance is brought the typical Alfa Romeo front grille for the nose. The car’s overall look and feel were influenced by the iconic Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale which can be said as the modern presentation of the legendary car.

The car looks nice and purposeful squat, those small but voluminous proportions and the butterfly doors whose windows fold into the roof. Described as having a ‘Formula 1 edge’ when new, the chiseled double-decker front diffuser looks to us a bit like the snout of the Boano-designed 750 Competizione from 1955.
The Alfa Romeo Diva Concept’s lightweight, minimalist interior and good power to weight ratio actually puts it somewhere in the Lotus Elise category. But the boys from Lotus should not worry as the Diva never went into the production line. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ALFA ROMEO | PAULTAN | CLASSICDRIVER]
