The Alfa Romeo 6c DiscoVolante Pays Tribute to Two Classic Cars

Automotive designer Alex Imnadze's latest creation is the Alfa Romeo 6C DiscoVolante. The car is inspired by two Alfas from the past: the 6C and the Disco Volante. Both have been out of production for years, but with the brand's reemergence it may not be long before company product planners go hunting for models to resurrect. The Alfa Romeo 6C DiscoVolante is a design study and doesn't feature an engine so there are no performance figures and times to share.

The Alfa Romeo 6C DiscoVolante is a mix of luxury and performance. The gigantic front splitter and rear diffuser suggest a car built to create downforce and stick to the track. Yet the long, flowing lines and wide track suggest a grand tourer built to turn heads as it slowly strolls down Europe's poshest streets. It's unlikely Alfa Romeo will build a car like this any time soon, but if it's looking for a new range-topper in the next few years there's a point of reference waiting.
