There is no denying that since the beginning of Alfa Romeo, they have made some of the most beautiful cars. Choosing the best from the 105 years of Alfa Romeo’s inventory is not a piece of cake. But we have done our absolute best to shortlist the most beautiful and iconic Alfa Romeos.
Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Mille Miglia (1938)
This Milan’s finest is unarguably most iconic and gorgeous vehicle they have ever produced. In fact, it is this car that got Alfa Romeo to the top of the luxury sports brands list. Ralph Lauren is a lucky man to have this amazing car in his collection and few years back, he exhibited this beauty at Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France.
Alfa Romeo TZ Coupé (1964)
This TZ coupé helped Alfa Romeo get to the podium of the races like Le Mans, Targa Florio, and Tour de France. They used Zagato body to build this iconic racing legend. In later years, it got auctioned at a whopping $800,000.
Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale (1968)
This one is considered as one of the most beautiful car ever made, it even gave Jaguar E-type run for its money. As the name suggests it is the street version of legendary racer type 33. At the time, this car was made; it was the epitome of revolutionary technology. The chassis included aluminum and magnesium which reduced the weight to just 120 lbs. This beauty also includes the vertical doors (Butterfly doors) which increase the value of this car to many folds. It is almost certain that this icon is invaluable but if we have to put the price on it, it would not be less than $15 million.
Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 TT 12 (1975)
In 1975, TT 12 came as the replacement of 1968 Tipo 33 racer that changed the fortune of Alfa Romeo at the race tracks. In a single season alone, they won seven championships beating the heavyweights like Ferrari, Maserati, and Porsche.
Alfa Romeo 4C Coupé and Spider (2015)
The newest Alfa Romeo sport car to join the family evoke the marque’s impressive heritage and ushers in a new era of seductive style for the legendary Italian brand. It has won praise from critics and car experts around the world for its combination of stunning Italian design and race-inspired performance. The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and 4C Spider continues an Alfa Romeo tradition of performance-oriented lines and proportions. Inspired by the 1967 Tipo 33 Stradale, the 4C models are just as shapely, and offer the classic Alfa Romeo V-shaped “plunging neckline” front grille. While fresh to the market, the 4C is already one of the most desirable vehicles on the road, and is anticipated to be highly in demand as a collectible in the coming years. (We suggest getting your hands on one now while you still can.)
Alfa Romeo had a rough last decade as they didn’t sell any car in the American Continents. But it seems like that is going to change as Alfa Romeo is locked to enter the Americas, and not just entering, but making a splash with their best car yet; “The 4C”. They have made this car with the sole purpose of rebranding their whole company. Ever since it was introduced, critics and customers are all praise and nothing else. The 4C carries the iconic untapped performance of the Alfa Romeo’s engines. Some critics say this might be the most beautiful of all Alfas ever made.
As fewer car manufacturers are opting for the manual transmission, the 4C still goes for the manual transmission which makes it even more appealing. In the coming years, this car is going to be the ‘must have’ collector’s car.
