To mark the year of Pininfarina's 80th anniversary, and also Alfa Romeo's centenary, the famous Italian styling house has developed a stunning sports car concept for the manufacturer.

The car was unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. At the same event Bertone also unveiled an Alfa concept, the Alfa Romeo Pandion. But whereas Bertone went for a futurisic look, Pininfarina went for a more classic design.

The unusually named 2uettottanta concept is based on the Alfa Romeo Spider platform and shares the same layout. Mounted up front is a longitudinally positioned 1750 cc (1.8 litre) four-cylinder turbocharged engine. This engine is designed to call on the heritage of the 1750 Veloce - one of many connections to past Alfa models. The 2uettottanta name itself is supposed to be a reflection of the popular Duetto.

Alfa Romeo and Pininfarina have both in conjunction and separately been responsible for producing some of the best looking cars on the planet. So it's no surprise that when they work together on a birthday present for themselves they come up with something pretty special. There's not many cars which can match the visual appeal that the 2uettottanta is packing.

The front end screams Alfa Romeo thanks to the distinctive upside-down triangle grille. For the 2uettottanta the designers have inset the grille so it just peeks out from within a gap in the bodywork. The menacing slit-like LED headlights and molded air intakes just below nicely match the recessed grille. A strip of carbon fibre in the lower part of the bumper acts as an air splitter, channeling the air to the rear end of the car.

In profile the almost textbook sports car proportions of the 2uettottanta concept can be clearly seen. A long, low hood is beautifully complemented by uncluttered body panels and a tapering, streamlined decklid and rear panel.

One of the more unusual aspects of the 2uettottanta's design are the humps behind the seats. These have a notch cut into them which exposes the seatbelt mechanism and provides a focal point for the styling in an area which would otherwise be uninteresting.

While there's no mention of whether the 2uettottanta will go into production in some form or another, it's certainly wouldn't be a difficult design to translate into a production model. Elements of its styling could quite easily find their way into the next Alfa Romeo Spider.
