Romeo Concept Cars. This page contains
concept cars and others that had limited production. Many of them was
only made in one example. This page is huge due to a lot of pictures,
and with a slow phone-jack modem it will take some time to load. I did
it this way because once it's loaded, it is much nicer to browse through
all the cars, without having to change page.
ROMEO BELLA 1999
First shown on
the Geneva motorshow in 1999, this is the "bella" which means
beautiful, and it is easy to agree. Designed by Bertone and based on the
Alfa 166 mechanics with the 3.0 liter V6, 166KW. This could be the coupé
version of the 166. I hope it happens.
2+2, very practical. True since only
3% of travels actually uses backseat in normal 4 seat cars
ROMEO DARDO 1998
Designed by Pininfarina
and based on the Alfa 156 mechanics and has the same 2.5 liter V6. Dardo
ROMEO SPORTUT 1997
this stylish 4x4 4-door SUV that it calls "Sportut." Sport-Ut is apparently
SUV pronounced in afrench dialect (?).
Italdesign working concept car.
Designer: Fabrizio Giugiaro, (son of Giugiaro senior, the man behind the
Alfasud 1971, VW Golf 1974 and Fiat Panda 1980). Engine placed in front
of rear axle, 3 liter V6, twin-turbo DOCH 24-valve producing 400 HP and
0-100 in 4.9 secs. All-wheel drive system, sequential six-speed gearbox

body fitted to a super lightweight frame made of an aluminium-carbon fibre
composite material. L: 432, H: 115, W: 198 cm. The name SCIGHERA comes

See how practical it is, all these bags
The designer himself
ROMEO NUVOLA 1996
Tazio Nuvolari, one of the greatest racing drivers, L: 429 W: 186 (cm)
and their first show-off of the engine to be placed in the 1999 introduced
166, the 24 valve 2.5 liter V6. The Novula version is a 300 hp and 0-100
in 6 secs. Was apparently withdrawn from the 1997 Turin autoshow, otherwise
it would have stolen attention from Fiats new Bravo/Bravo series introduced
the same year. There is a spider version as well.
ROMEO SPIDER MONOPOSTO 1992
Stile (Zagato) Concept car, shares looks with current GTV and Spider series.
ROMEO 164 PROTÉO 1992
car for the Geneva Autoshow 1992. Looks to me as a rounded up version
of the SZ Zagato from 1989 with the inclution of the wedge line from the
ROMEO" MINARI 33 KITCAR 199?
This doesnt really belong here, but I
don't know where to put it otherwise. The Minari is a kitcar that can
be built on the Alfa 33 (the 83-95 33s...)
ROMEO SZ 1989
Zagato squarish design
went into production with the 3 liter V6 and a plastic
body. In production 1989-90. 0-100 in 7.3 sec, 5 spd gearbox V6 SOHC 12
valves, rear wheel drive. A spider version was also available (RZ). Made
its debut as the ES30.

ROMEO CUNEO 1968
this car pre-70's or what!? It was probably as stylish as you could get.
Like something brought from one of the more cheaper Bond-movies. Cool!
this is one of 2 Pininfarina's designstudies based on the Type 33, the
other was called "Coupé 33".
ROMEO TYPE 33 STRADALE 1967

of its mechanical components with Giulia TI. It was an an effort to tame
and make a roadworthy version of the Zagato GTZ, who dod splendidly at
the race tracks.

Ghia study (6 made) based on 1900
ROMEO 2000 SPORTIVA COUPÉ 1956(?)
Scaglione of Bertone designed this car based on the Disco Volante frame.
Extremely potent looking.
He also designed the spider below.
ROMEO 2000 SPORTIVA SPIDER 1955(?)
as the Coupé this is based on the Disco Volante frame. Also
a France Scaglione of Bertone design. A unique
feature for its time was the beneath-the-nose air-intake. All cars have
ROMEO GIULIETTA BERTONE SPIDER 1955
could have been... Only one built of this masterpiece by France
Scaglione! Alfa Romeo finally selected the Pininfarina design for the
prodoction as the Giuletta Spider during the 50's.
ROMEO BERTONE B.A.T 1953-55
Each year between 1953 and 55 at the Turin Auto show, Bertone
and Alfa Romeo presented a BAT concept, the BAT 5, 7 and 9. They were
all based on the 1900 floorpan and where design studies for aerodynamics.
The CV/CD values bacame as low as 0.19. BAT stands for Berlinetta Aerodinamica
Tecnica. From left to right: BAT9, BAT5 and BAT7.
ROMEO DISCO VOLANTE 1952
Disco Volante meaning "Flying Saucer" was based
on the 1900 platform. This one is from the Alfa museum in Arese (north
of Milan). It looks like this one has a hardtop. There were a number of
variants, some looks really nice. I am still looking for pictures.
