The automaker announced that Alfa Romeo's highly anticipated flagship supercar is set to debut on August 30. Rumored to bear the iconic 6C moniker, the forthcoming Alfa Romeo model is poised to embody the brand's rich heritage while showcasing cutting-edge performance and design.
CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato unveiled the exciting news, revealing that the long-awaited flagship vehicle will be showcased on a date coinciding with the prestigious Italian Grand Prix. Accompanying the announcement was a tantalizing teaser image adorned with the evocative tagline, "date to dream" (translated from Italian).
The teaser image offers a glimpse of what appears to be a portion of the front grille, captivating enthusiasts and setting imaginations alight. Previous teasers had showcased the distinctive taillight design, resembling a fusion of the numerals 6 and C.
These intriguing details have only intensified speculations that the new Alfa Romeo will join the esteemed ranks of the 8C and 4C as the latest addition to the brand's exclusive lineup of halo cars.
Powerful 2.9-Liter V6 Engine Expected
Considering the mounting rumors surrounding the 6C moniker and the flagship status of this forthcoming model, expectations are high for a powerful six-cylinder engine.
Alfa Romeo possesses a formidable V6 powerplant—the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 derived from Ferrari and currently employed in the acclaimed Giulia Quadrifoglio. Even in its GTAm configuration, this exceptional engine churns out a formidable 532 horsepower (397 kW/540 PS) and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque.
For Imparato, the realization of this project represents a personal "dream come true." In an interview with Autocar, he acknowledged the ambition and audacity of the passionate team behind this venture, aiming to achieve something extraordinary.
Drawing inspiration from Alfa Romeo's illustrious past, the design may incorporate influences from the iconic T33 Stradale. Despite initial skepticism within Stellantis, Imparato's unwavering commitment to this visionary endeavor has prevailed.
The forthcoming supercar will be exhibited alongside the revered 8C at the esteemed Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese. Enthusiasts and automotive fans eagerly await the unveiling of this remarkable creation on August 30, poised to solidify Alfa Romeo's enduring legacy of innovation and performance.
