Turkish car designer Ugur Sahin’s latest project is a concept for a two-door, front-engined Alfa Romeo sports car.
The concept is dubbed the C12 GTS and Sahin is currently seeking investors to help him bring his vision to production. Making requests through his company Ugur Sahin Design, based out of the Netherlands, Sahin has released plenty of images and a written description of the C12 CTS Concept.
This stunning concept is just the most recent from Sahin, who is building up a nice resume that so far includes: 2007 Ferrari Dino, 2010 Aston Martin Gauntlet and the 2011 Soleil Anadi, which is the design study for the production version of the 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z03. The Z03 was released last year at the Top Marques car show in Monaco, and Soleil is producing 300 of the $299,995 models.

From Ugur Sahin:
“The main goal of this design is to reinterpret Alfa Romeo’s historical lines, surfaces and styling cues with fresh perspective and state of mind in order to create an appealing design and combining the familiar design language of Alfa Romeo combined with sharper lines and surfaces without losing the organic attractiveness of the car.
One of the main features of the design is the way its stance is shaped. As a whole it gives you the impression of “forward-movement” even while standing still. The iconic Alfa Romeo Grille hosts the center of the organic lines which flow towards the back and around the car with minimum distraction and maximum visual impact. The way the front is designed consists of two different shape compositions to make the face of the car sporty and aggressive, yet so appealing.
The side silhouette creates a balanced front-to-back ratio that grabs your attention with proper proportional balance and the perfectly straight line that divides the upper and the lower parts of the car seamlessly wraps around the back making the car look as a whole.”
Currently we are actively looking for investors and parties who want to be involved in the project in order to build an exclusive car which is destined to give its owner the ultimate feeling of powerful design and driving experience.”
