This is not the new supercar Alfa Romeo to be unveiled next year, but a little surprise from the Italian car designer Zagato who presents his Alfa Romeo Giulia SWB.
This is not really a surprise, as Zagato had already announced in 2019 that it was working on a new car based on theAlfa Romeo Giulia. After a few weeks of teasing, here it is finally...
The Alfa Romeo Giulia SWB Zagato!
To start, SWB for Short Wheel Base, which indicates the Giorgio platform has been shortened, with a shorter wheelbase. Then this Giulia SWB Zagato uses the new lights inaugurated by the Alfa Romeo Tonale. Under the hood, the engine of the Giulia GTAm, the 2.9L V6 of 540 hp, coupled to the manual 6-speed gearbox of the Quadrifoglio.
At the rear, we must be honest, we can see a reference to Aston Martin... and the roof could also remind the Peugeot RCZ! From the side we can see the reference to the Alfa Romeo Zagato SZ.
It should be noted that if everything was done by Zagato, the Alfa Romeo styling center had been put in the loop of the project as Alejandro Mesonero, head of Alfa Romeo design, explains: "As Centro Stile, we are pleased to have supported Zagato in contributing to the design of this car, which, with this "unique piece", has chosen to celebrate its historical link with Alfa Romeo."
In any case, like it or not, it's always good to see something new from Italian designers.

Not a fan but happy to see Zagato working with the brand, I hope this will herald other exclusive collaborations like the barchetta with Maserati presented this summer at Villa D'Este.
I admit for the front I'm septic and still just the bumper, as much for the profile and rear.... I'm craaaaaacute and in profile, you can see the affiliation with the Z😍!
Alexandre you can do as you like to rob Credit Suisse or UBS but I want one!😁👍
For me it will be a Bertone GB110, thank you!
It is beautiful but we still don't know its engine?
Bertone being first of all a coachbuilder, which thus celebrates its 110 years, it is not surprising 😉
It's strange Fredo because we know that it's a thermal engine that also runs on recycled waste, which seems strange that we don't know the number of cylinders or whether it's flat, in-line or V-shaped?
The base is (after research) an Audi R8 and well we saw better as a base hoping that it is rather a Huracan at least.
We'll keep our fingers crossed that this is the one for a real comeback.🤞
From some angles, on the video, the front looks like Montreal too!
P..... I really want one!🤤
The dented roof is "THE" trademark of the house of Zagato since ever, so the Peugeot can go to hell because it already appeared on Alfa, Aston and other brands signed Zagato (the 2 brothers at that time). The rear was ordered like that because it has a lot of Alfa and Aston.
