At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show today, Pininfarina is celebrating its 80th anniversary with the debut of a new concept – the Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta concept. The goal of the 2uettottanta was to produce a “concept car with Alfa Romeo mechanicals, reflecting Pininfarina”s desire to look to the future with optimism.”
The 2-seater spider is also a tribute Alfa Romeo, which is celebrating its centenary at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show with two other concepts and a bunch of other debuts.
As for the Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta Concept – Alfa says that it is not a pure styling exercise but also a project and research. The main goal behind the 2uettottanta is to get a hold of the spirit of the spider in the configuration, the proportions and the conception of the car as well as in its style.
“For this project, the Pininfarina creative team were given carte blanche to express the values inherent in the Alfa spider “by Pininfarina”, the values that are deemed to have made the Giulietta Spider or the Duetto all-time classics,” Alfa said in a statement. “To achieve this result, the car was given a particular set-up, with a low centre of gravity and a passenger compartment that is very exposed so as not to isolate the occupants from the surrounding environment. The result is to bring the road “nearer” to the eyes of the driver and to increase the sense of dynamism even at low speed.”
So will we see the 2uettottanta go into production? We sure hope so.
