Franco Scaglione and the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale
May 22nd, 2015.
Less well known than many of the famous Italian automotive designers Franco Scaglione was responsible for some of the most original designs of the 1960s and 70s. I plan to prepare a separate piece about his work in the future.
I was recently asked for my opinion about the design of the 1967 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 ‘Stradale’ road cars which were the work of Turin based Scaglione. Only 18 cars were built, 14 as ‘Stradales’, all based on the Autodelta Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 sports racing car; Autodelta was the official racing arm of the Alfa factory.
