The Alfa Romeo Montreal concept is a creation of Karl
Sanders, a design student at Coventry University currently
completing his final year.
The Montreal concept was inspired by the original Bertone
Romeo Montreal which was introduced at the Expo 67
held in Montreal. The original car was not actually called
the Montreal but due to the location of its unveiling
the name stayed with the car throughout its lifetime.
The Montreal concept is based on the current GM/Fiat Premium
platform which is used by the Alfa
Romeo Brera and Alfa Romeo 159. The concept was specially
designed as a show car for Alfa Romeo when they reintroduce
the brand to America in 2011 as Alfa Romeo have not been
in the American market since 1995.
Just like the original car the Montreal concept features
distinctive and unique styling elements including a deeply
recessed and blacked-out grille and headlight unit, louvers
above the headlights, an upward sweeping window line at
the rear of the door, and parallel vents integrated into
the rear wheel arches. At the rear both the original and
the concept share a simple and uncluttered layout, however
for the concept Montreal Sanders has replaced the square
taillights with sleek circular units which give the car
a more contemporary appearance.
