Pininfarina Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta Concept 2010 2011 Unveiled

Simple lines and simple curves without the clutter of huge intakes all over the car. Somehow I got a huge sensation of calmness while looking at the pictures. Now what we need is a coupe version so that we can enjoy this car even when it's not a pretty summer day. That is, if they are going to make this thing at all. I wish they do.
There are a few things that just don't seem well finished, however. The side crease is really a distraction.As we predicted yesterday, the new concept, called the 2uettottanta, is a revival of the much-loved Alfa Romeo Duetto first produced in 1966.

The new two-seat spider not only maintains the cuttlebone design, but it even maintains some similar measurements. Though at 1797mm it is a full 170mm wider than the original, the new car measures 4213mm long by 1280mm high, about 40mm x 15mm less than the first version.

Where the pitch to Alfa may live or die is in its front end. Pininfarina designers crafted the front without several of the elements seen on Alfa's current design theme. Bug-eye headlights set well above the bumper have been replaced with thin LED strip lights. There are no horizontal air inlets on either side of the signature upside-down grille. A heavily carved hood would make no sense in a car trying to keep the cuttlefish-inspired look, but the hood does not even subtlely alude to the car's nose I generally don't like how side creases have become such a gimmick. Even with that bias aside there is something just not right with this one. As nice as the smaller lights are, they sort of sit in large recesses. The grille/nose does have vintage Alfa/Pininfarina design language, but it still looks unfinished. The entire car has an "unfinished look" to it. Something about it screams "molded out of fiberglass". The way the side crease wraps into the rear deck really does make the car look like it's built in "frozen snot" (a famously used, disparaging term for fiberglass).
