Alfa Romeo will display a concept car called the Gloria at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show that is jointly developed with the students of European Design Institute of Turin. The concept car with typical Alpa design cues will join the 4C for the European event.
Alfa Romeo says that the car represents the company’s sports spirit and Italian style and will appeal mainly to the Asian and American audience. It is designed to accommodate a state-of-art V6 or V8 engine with leather strips on the bonnet, intended to recall the leather luggage compartments straps from the Alfa cars gone by.
Twenty students were involved in the project from the original product brief, style proposals and development to the final 1:1 scale model. The exquisite concept with typical Alfa Romeo nose and grille will also get a dedicated iPad app that will let users explore the car and select from five colours and alloy-wheels.
The company has already confirmed that the Gloria is purely a concept and will never go to production. Then why write about it? Because we absolutely love the design and hope Alfa will use the design cues from the concept for their future models.
