The 2023 Alfa Romeo supercar teaser appears for the first time

~NEW Supercar~ As we've entered the new year of 2023, Alfa Romeo uploaded a short video highlighting its current products to its official Instagram account. On December 30, 2022, to be precise, the Italian brand introduced the slightly updated Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfa Romeo Stelvio. And then those two cars are joined with the brand new compact crossover Alfa Romeo Tonale went into the global market.

But who would have thought, at the beginning of 2023 it seems that Alfa Romeo has prepared to present something much more interesting. As we can see at the end of the video, there is a glimpse of the taillight design which is currently not offered on any of those three mentioned car models that being sold by the Italian brand at the moment.

And if you look closely, it looks similar to the round taillights, which instantly reminds us to the Alfa Romeo 4C was discontinued its production several years ago, then had also offered on the Alfa Romeo 8C, which was sold in the late 2000s. What is clear, this new supercar is likely to be placed in between the two.

It is also reported that the new supercar will adopt a six-cylinder engine, which will most likely be a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6. Indeed, this drivetrain has been used in the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA which is capable of producing around 540 horsepower and 442 lbs-feet (600 Newton-meters) of torque. So it will be interesting to see if Alfa Romeo's engineers will improve those performance numbers when the such a kind of engine is placed in the new supercar in question.

Well, the supercar shown briefly in the short video here cannot be confused with Alfa Romeo Zagato's one-off creation which was also launched late last year. What we all know is that it's a short wheelbase two-seat coupe model written by the Zagato to mark the 100th anniversary of this Milan-based coachbuilder's collaboration with Alfa Romeo.

As the Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato suggested the official launch of the new Alfa Romeo supercar would take place in March 2023, where he also hinted that this special supercar would be produced in limited numbers and come with a high price tag.

As quoted from Motor1, this mysterious supercar model, temporarily known as the Alfa Romeo 6C, which is said emerged to remedy the wounds and disappointments that arose when the Italian brand had announced the revival of the GTV and 8C but were later cancelled. This will also likely to be the last petrol engined car product launch from the brand under the Stellantis auspices. 
Imparato further also suggested the supercar would be a real Alfa Romeo model, meaning it would not be a rebranded Maserati MC20. Just for your info, Alfa Romeo will transform into a pure electric vehicle brand by the end of the decade, in which the next-generation Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio have been confirmed as EVs, that's a kind of sign for the ending of the ICE models of Alfa Romeo fastly approaching. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ALFA ROMEO | ID.MOTOR1 | TOPGEAR | ED OVENS | AUTOEVOLUTION ]
