Alfa Romeo Nuova – the concept of 1996, which we forgot

The car was named after the Italian race car driver Tazio Giorgio Nuvolari. Officially, the concept was presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1996.

Alfa Romeo Nuova is a concept car that was shown by an Italian brand back in 1996 – the show was held at the Paris Motor Show. The then new product was equipped with a 2.5-liter V6 engine with two turbines with a capacity of 296 horsepower (386 Nm), which worked with 6-speed manual transmission, and its body was made of polyester. He received four-wheel drive, and it took 6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h. The maximum speed of the concept was 280 km / h.

Why did we decide to remember Alfa Romeo Nuova now? Not only because it was pretty much like the British TVR supercar. It was an interesting attempt by Alfa Romeo to revive the glory days of car builders who made the bearing body for carriages.

After seeing recently appeared on the network images of the not yet released GTV model, we decided it was time to recall another 2-door sports coupe from Alfa Romeo. On the appearance of this concept worked personally car designer Walter de Silva. It was he who created the Audi R8 supercar, not to mention the great concept of the Lamborghini Miura and Egoista. He was also the man behind the beautiful Alfa Romeo 156 and many other models from the Volkswagen Group.

The Nuvola concept has got a long hood and a strongly inclined roofline, ending in a short rear. The concept served as a preview of the new Alfa Romeo style. The Italian brand considered Nuvola as a car with a monocoque body – a modular chassis with a spatial frame was used.
