The most beautiful Alfa Romeo Scighera concept car of 1990s

Alfa Romeo is indeed famous for having cars that have great appeal, even arguably very sexy, surpassing the Ferrari & Lamborghini! In the row of Alfa Romeo's beautiful concept cars, there are Alfa Romeo TZ3, Alfa Romeo 4C, Alfa Romeo Brera, and the most legendary, Alfa Romeo Scighera.

That's probably the design that doesn't suit most tastes. However, many car design observers assume that the Scighera, designed by Italdesign, one of the famous Italian design bureaus is one of the most beautiful car designs in the world. Great is not it?

The Scighera, which was first introduced in 1997 and built based on Alfa Romeo 164, and uses a chassis and body from a combination of aluminum composite and carbon fiber, thus making Scighera has a relatively lightweight, which is only 1,447 kg. This lightweight was obtained with exotic designs such as unique door and window openings, which then made many people captivated at that time (and until now, maybe!)

At that time, when Alfa Romeo and Fabrizio Giugiaro from Italdesign made Scighera, they wanted to make it the mainstay supercar of the Alfa Romeo brand, which at that time its prestige as a sports car manufacturer began to fall.

To fulfill this purpose, Alfa Romeo then installed a 3,000cc V6 TwinTurbo mid-mounted engine taken from the modified Alfa Romeo 164. The engine has a quite impressive capability at the time, namely bursts of power up to 400hp at 7,500rpm.

But for now, maybe a burst of power of 400hp is considered standard for the sportscar. Although it has a standard power, the Schigera can accelerate from 0 to 96kph in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 300kph. This impressive performance is obtained in addition to the light bodyweight and aerodynamics, also because the sports car applies a 4WD drive system taken from the Alfa Romeo 155.
The Alfa Romeo Scighera GT also included as one of the participants of the NFS Hot Pursuit III racing game simulation(Picture from: https://bit.ly/2WOANgO)
The appearance of the racing version? Although Alfa Romeo and ItalDesign do not plan to include Scighera in the production line, in order to further stick their impression as a supercar, then Alfa Romeo made a racing version of this car which was later given the name Scighera GT to enter in a famous racing game, NFS Hot Pursuit III.
This car looks fierce with a more aggressive body design, full of sponsors' stickers, a giant GT Wing, and the use of Sparco Cromodora's super-lightweight alloy wheels, making the Scighera GT equals with the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione, as a serious-made racing concept car. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1]
