This car could be based on the Grande Punto, and would feature Alfa Romeo’s mechanical components.

Its design should be a mix of stylistic elements from the Alfa Brera and the upcoming Alfa 147 replacement.

The coupé should also have a strong brand image and should feature links with the past Alfa Romeo models.

As reported by Autoblog.it, some hints on the final design can be taken from the 2005 edition of the "Sportività Italiana" Exhibition, that displayed works from the Turin-based Istituto di Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD).

An extensive gallery of the 14 finalist projects is available at Virtual Car.
