The new Alfa Brera has been crowned the "Most Beautiful Car in the World" at the 21st annual International Automobile Festival, beating out three other finalists: the Peugeot 407 Coupe, Chrysler 300C Touring and Lexus IS 250.

Other awards went to the Citroen C6 for Best Interior, the Bugatti Veyron for Supercar of the Year, and the Mazda Senku for Concept Car of the Year. Italdesign's Giorgetto Giugiaro (who penned the Brera) was awarded the Grand Prize for Art.

Since its debut as a concept car, the Brera has won numerous awards, including Best of Show at the 2002 Geneva Auto Show, and "One of the most elegant in the world" at the 2002 Challenge Bibendum.
