Alfa Romeo supercar: what we know one week ahead of its unveiling

Alfa Romeo is preparing to unveil its new supercar, which could be the brand's last to use a combustion engine. Here's everything you need to know about this exceptional car, on display at the Musée d'Arese on August 30, during the week of the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

A name steeped in history

It doesn't yet have an official name, but it could be called 6C or 33in tribute to Tipo 33 StradaleThe Tipo 33 Stradale was a sports car produced between 1967 and 1969, considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. The Tipo 33 Stradale was based on the Tipo 33 racing car, which won several endurance titles.


A powerful, exclusive engine

Alfa Romeo's supercar will be equipped with the V6 Alfa Romeo / Nettuno Maserati enginewhich already equips the Maserati MC20another supercar from the Stellantis group. This engine develops 630 horsepower on the MC20, but it could be increased to between 700 and 800 horsepower on Alfa Romeo's supercar, according to rumors. The engine features innovative Formula 1-inspired technology for enhanced performance and efficiency.

Limited production at a (very) high price

It will be produced in 33 copies onlyAccording to some sources, all have already been sold. The price would be over one million euroswhich would make it one of the most expensive cars in the world. Production will start in 2025This gives future owners plenty of time to wait.


A car dedicated to the track, but approved for the road

Alfa Romeo's supercar will be designed to offer the best sensations on the racetrack, but it will also be homologated for road use (unlike the Maserati MCXtrema). It will share the same base as the Maserati MC20, which is a light, agile car with a carbon-fiber chassis and optimized aerodynamics. The Alfa Romeo should be even more radical than the MC20, with a typically Alfa Romeo design and superior performance.

An important model in the brand's DNA

Finally, it will be the first 100 % Stellantis model from the Italian brand, which is part of the new group resulting from the merger between PSA and FCA. The car's design is led by Alejandro Mesonero-Romanosa Spanish designer who has worked for Renault, Seat and Dacia. He joins Alfa Romeo in 2021The new Alfa Romeo will be a flagship model for the future of the brand. The Alfa Romeo will therefore be an emblematic model for the future of the brand, which will also have to turn to electrification in the coming years.

  1. Design-wise, I'm afraid.
    It's not Pininfarina, Bertone, Giugiaro or Sbarro.
    Engine selection question
    I'd prefer an Alfa engine
    Taking up the MC20 platform
    Excellent news, but let's hope that its length is somewhere between that of the 4C and the MC20.
    But why not?
    A series of 33 Stradales dedicated to the track
    A series of 33 spider versions.
    These would sell like hotcakes.
    All we need is a Stratos and we've come full circle.

    PS: I hope Alexandre remembered to order my version because my birthday's on Sunday 😁

    • I'd prefer an Alfa engine: good thing the Nettuno V6 is an Alfa Romeo engine! Code name V6 PDI at Alfa Romeo and V6 TJI at Maserati. Not long ago, a Maserati mechanic confirmed that the Nettuno engine had an Alfa Romeo badge...

      The pre-order is done, I've started a fund, I hope it will work otherwise I'll have to mortgage my house.

      • It's true that the basic block is the same, but I'd have preferred the latest, even more compact Ferrari.
        Perhaps in the future Stratos, as was the case at the time - who knows, time will tell.

      • Hello, I thought it was a Maserati engine, but the "Italpassion" site told me that the Nettuno was basically the 2.9 L V6 from the Giulia QV (originally from Ferrari, modified to a 3.0 L V6), so ????

  2. A lot of energy for 33 cars... I'd like to see as much enthusiasm for a giulia SW or a giuletta bis... it seems simple to me, doesn't it? Or maybe I just don't understand cars anymore!

    • The Giulia SW was a mistake from the start, and the Giulietta should have evolved as much as possible, but we didn't get any of that, and that's Marchionne's fault.

    • He screwed up:
      Alfa Romeo:
      159 and Brera disappointing
      Not making a true 156 evo 2 Q4 (like the crosswagon and Sportwagon) and upgrading the Giulietta.
      Having abandoned the 4C, the 8C and the duetto project too early, as well as the Giulia SW and the Giuliana project (based on the Ghibli and the Levante-based SUV).

      Withdrawal from 124 too fast
      4C project scorpion version stopped.
      Not to have brought out a 500 Bispoto with the rear mid-engine as on the Clio or R5

      Lancia: Didn't replace the Thesis (based on Ghibli and SUV on Levante).
      A new Delta (on Giulietta), Stratos.
      Having made a Ypsilon that's no match for its predecessor and plastered American 🇺🇸 cars that aren't so good in Italian (what a waste).

      Maserati (not upgrading the Ghibli every year and not doing the same with the Levante, as well as not listening to customers when they asked for an extra-long version of the Quattroporte).

      Fiat: failing to develop the Tipo family and the 124, and dropping the 500L too quickly.

      Artega: he didn't take over the GT when Paragon offered him the chance, even though it would have been perfect as a flagship for Lancia (he wanted it for a handful of cherries and the Mexican group took it away from him).

      For the rest, it's a clean sweep, from Ferrari and Alfa for the Giulia and Stelvio to the Chrysler takeover.

  3. There was talk of Fiat defaulting in 2004... Ten years later, the group bought Chrysler. Ten years later we have this magnificent 33 Stradale (as expected), which is an "instant classic" even if the presentation seems very odd to me (we finally get the model specs after half an hour).
