What did you say here again? What "current infuential Asian automotive products"?This design, to me, follows a couple of styling languages and one overall trend. The "abruptness of line/shape" seen in some Lotus offerings (Elise/Exige) and the angular tension of BMW's "flame surfacing" (Z4) seem equally represented. I consider both of these schools to be a conventional/European derivation of the generally softer-of-shape - though sometimes more extreme in execution (Qube, anyone?) - "anime/non-organic/transformer" sensibility of many current, influential Asian automotive products.
While I don't care for the body design, as it reminds me of the fat kid at the local elementary school, or Pugsley Addams, like nbaum, I look forward light, nimble, rear wheel drive Alfa.What did you say here again? What "current infuential Asian automotive products"?
Agree that the concept looks a bit derivative - I also had thoughts of a new Lotus.
At the end of the day, let's see when the thing is in showrooms and on the road - Of course, I love the idea of a nimble, light weight, RWD Alfa at a reasonable price and I am looking forward to comparing it to the Cayman S or R - Still the greatest new car design since the Audi TT ...
And the Cayman goes as good as it looks. Brilliant! Hope the Alfa will come close as it might be impossible to best Porsche
The earliest one I was aware of was Nissan's S-Cargo (shown in '89 - produced from '89-92):What did you say here again? What "current infuential Asian automotive products"?
Agreed - the Audi TT was a brilliant, architecturally-derived, and heritage embracing (Avus record cars) response that definitely moved the goalposts.[..] looking forward to comparing it to the Cayman S or R - Still the greatest new car design since the Audi TT ...
You mean you don't discuss automotive design with your date?All I know is when you guys are at home critiquing the 4C design details, I'll be out on the road in mine rolling with the laydeeeez. Aw yeeeeeah!
If you're going to dream, then why not dream BIG? Make the 2uettottanta, give it a 500HP engine that gets 75MPG, and sell it for $3000. There, that's better.little italian is right on that...make the 2duettanta,,sell it for $25000... to $34000.00 loaded.. they wont have time to stop the factorys in buildling them...
The realistic number is 34k to 45k loaded. Hit that, and you're money....sell it for $25000... to $34000.00 loaded..
