Romeo 12C GTS
The Alfa Romeo 12C GTS is a sports car concept which is designed to
capture the classic appeal and drama of historic Alfas - cars like
the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante - and wrap it up in a modern package.
According to Ugur Sahin Design, the creators of the concept: "The
main goal of this design is to reinterpret Alfa Romeo's historical
lines, surfaces and styling cues with fresh perspective and state
of mind in order to create an appealing design and combining the familiar
design language of Alfa Romeo combined with sharper lines and surfaces
without losing the organic attractiveness of the car.
Unlike his previous design the 12C GTS has no obvious model on which
it is based. And as such there are no drivetrain details or engineering
specifications of any kind.
One of the main features of the design is the way its stance is shaped.
As a whole it gives you the impression of "forward-movement"
even while standing still. The iconic Alfa Romeo Grille hosts the
center of the organic lines which flow towards the back and around
the car with minimum distraction and maximum visual impact. The way
the front is designed consists of two different shape compositions
to make the face of the car sporty and aggressive, yet so appealing.
The side silhouette creates a balanced front-to-back ratio that grabs
your attention with proper proportional balance and the perfectly
straight line that divides the upper and the lower parts of the car
seamlessly wraps around the back making the car look as a whole."
