Looks different again from that angle around the rear three quarters....It really is a stunning car....

Alfieri is clearly very special. Let's hope it comes on time and is a reasonable drive.

I must admit I looked at those pictures, and I did a virtual wash of it in my head, how sad :(

That rear is very special, I am still not 100% on the shark front end, it sort of does not balance with the back, but what do I know, I am no car designer!

Judging by the wheel diameter of 20", they should be fine. But it does look gorgeous.
So some more digging on the - EU regs require the lowest point on the headlight to be a minimu of 400mm from the ground 19.5"...so the front my have to be re styled to ensure this is met as they appear to be lower than the top of the alloys by a few inch. Unless they fit the projector high in the unit but the top of the light looks too slim for that.

Bit like the old Alfa Brera,looked fantasic in the design stage but turned out to look and drive like a heavy Fiat/Chrysler lump of lard!

I think the Brera looks bloody amazing still...Especially in S form.....but do agree with Dave,,,The drive never lived up to its looks....A real shame...
