The Alfa Romeo Nuvola concept from
the 1996 Paris Motor Show was a front engined sports coupe
with classic proportions and a longitudinally mounted
300 bhp V6. With a 6-speed manual gearbox the Nuvola was
capable of reaching 174 mph. The 'Nuvola' name was a tribute
to one of the greatest Italian Grand Prix drivers of all
time, Tazio Nuvolari.
The Nuvola was designed by the same
man responsible for the Alfa GTV
The Alfa Romeo Nuvola concept was similar in size to the
Alfa Romeo GTV. Both the GTV and Nuvola were designed
by the same man, Walter de Silva, and both cars feature
twin recessed headlights positioned either side of the
small triangular Alfa grille.
Inside the Nuvola concept the classical theme continued
with the interior trimmed in bare metal and leather, a
wood-rimmed steering wheel with polished spokes suits
the design perfectly.
Unfortunatley the flowing, rounded design of the Nuvola
was never taken to production and the car remained a concept.
On the upside however, the equally gorgeous Alfa
Romeo 8c Competizione concept from 2003 went into
production in 2007.
