Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept

With some helping hands from Alfa Romeo Style Centre, twenty students from the European Design Institute of Turin (IED) have come up with a concept called ‘Gloria’. The saloon is set to make its first ever public appearance at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show next month.

The Gloria concept is the students’ interpretation of an Alfa Romeo saloon that is supposed to appeal to the American and Asian market. At 4,700 mm long, 1,920 mm wide and 1,320 mm high, Gloria is a sporty car that features the brand’s trademark grille on the front as well as aggressive lines running down from the side to the rear end. Leather strips on the front bonnet evoke “the memorable leather straps for the luggage compartments of the brand’s historic cars”. Alfa Romeo said that the car will be powered either by a state-of-the-art V6 or V8 biturbo engine.

The process of designing Gloria began with a briefing from Alfa Romeo Style Centre. After some research and study, a total of twenty initial designs were handed over, of which one was selected to be worked on in full scale.
