The 5 Most Beautiful Alfa Romeos Ever Made

Presented By Alfa Romeo
Apr. 14th, 2016

It’s safe to say that every vehicle ever built by Alfa Romeo can be called beautiful. Picking favorites from among the marque’s 105 years of iconic vehicles is a difficult task, but this is a good primer on some of the truly exceptional vehicles from the Milanese maestros.

1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Mille Miglia

One of the most gorgeous and beautiful racing Alfa Romeos of all time belongs to world-renowned fashion designer Ralph Lauren. Designed to compete in the 1938 Mille Miglia, it was one of the starring attractions at the incredible exhibition of Ralph Lauren’s cars at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

1964 Alfa Romeo TZ Coupé

Of the 112 Zagato-bodied TZs ever built – one of the most exquisitely designed cars ever created – the one pictured here boasts a racing pedigree that includes Le Mans, the Tour de France and the Targa Florio. It was auctioned off for $800,000 a few years back and now belongs to a very lucky collector.

1968 Tipo 33 Stradale

Considered one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the Tipo 33 Stradale is a car collector’s dream. Alfa Romeo produced just 18 of the 33 Stradale, the street-legal version of the racing type 33, making each a highly valuable icon. Featuring the very latest in light-weight technology, including aluminum and magnesium, the chassis weighed just 119 lbs (54 kg). Stunning vertically-opening doors add another distinctive element to this timeless design. The value of each 33 Stradale is almost impossible to determine, as the vehicle is hardly ever traded, but is estimated at close to $15 million.

1975 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 TT 12

1975 was a year of almost total domination for Alfa Romeo on the world’s racetracks, with seven wins in eight races landing it the World Championship for Makes title over the likes of Porsche, Ferrari and Maserati. One of its most successful cars that year was this stunning Tipo 33 TT 12 with Campari livery.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and 4C Spider

The newest Alfa Romeo sport car to join the family evoke the marque’s impressive heritage and ushers in a new era of seductive style for the legendary Italian brand. It has won praise from critics and car experts around the world for its combination of stunning Italian design and race-inspired performance. The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and 4C Spider continues an Alfa Romeo tradition of performance-oriented lines and proportions. Inspired by the 1967 Tipo 33 Stradale, the 4C models are just as shapely, and offer the classic Alfa Romeo V-shaped “plunging neckline” front grille. While fresh to the market, the 4C is already one of the most desirable vehicles on the road, and is anticipated to be highly in demand as a collectible in the coming years. (We suggest getting your hands on one now while you still can.)

Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo Automobiles was founded on June 24, 1910, in Milan, Italy, and has been involved in car racing since 1911. Racing and winning is synonymous with Alfa Romeo: Five world championships with 11 Mille Miglia victories, seventeen European Touring Car Championships, plus countless other victories including the very first Formula 1 Championship. It was owned by Italian state holding company, Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industriale, between 1932 and 1986, when it became part of the Fiat Group. In February 2007, the Alfa Romeo brand was transformed into the current Alfa Romeo Automobiles S.p.A., a subsidiary of Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A. Now, after 20 years abroad, Alfa Romeo USA makes its return to North America, bringing with it the same luxury, high-performance and seductive design it has been recognized for since 1910....(Read More)
