In a tribute to its 1960s sports car of the same name, Alfa Romeo has unveiled the revival of the renowned 33 Stradale; Widely regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time, the 33 Stradale has made a legendary comeback. Handcrafted in a highly exclusive production of only 33 vehicles by the renowned Milan-based coachbuilder Touring Superleggera, the car offers an unparalleled level of personalization. Utilizing a carbon fiber monocoque combined with aluminum front and rear subframes, each vehicle car is designed to be a unique and unrepeatable work of art.
“The new 33 Stradale has been designed to enhance our identity, elevate our aspirations, and embody our DNA and values,” says Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato. “It is the brand’s first custom-built car since 1969, and I promise it will not be our last. It brings Alfa Romeo back into the ‘Supercar Club’, of which we were one of the founding members. We wanted to create something that lived up to our past, to serve the brand and to make the Alfisti fandom proud.”
Under the bonnet latest Alfa Romeo special edition offers the choice of a V6 twin-turbo engine producing over 620 hp, or it’s available in a BEV setup boasting more than 750 hp. Exceptional performance characterizes both variants, with a remarkable top speed of 333 km/h and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than three seconds. The interiors are also distinguished by minimalism of design and materials, two interior trim options are on offer: “Tributo” and “Alfa Corse.” While the former will mimic the classic car, the latter will be sportier.
In the case of the Tributo variant, a blend of leather and aluminum materials is employed. This includes a two-tone combination of biscuit leather and slate, present in various elements such as the seats, dashboard, door panels, and central tunnel. Alfa Corse selection showcases a fusion of carbon fiber and Alcantara. This combination extends to the seats, dashboard, door panels, and central tunnel, where Alcantara and leather harmonize in color schemes like black, red/black, or blue/black.
The cost of all this? While the price hasn’t been officially disclosed, and as per CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato, it will never be, rumors suggest it’s around €1.7 million, and this is before taxes. Alfa Romeo has indicated that all 33 units have already been sold, with customers having been approached as early as last year.
