What you're looking at could be the 2056 Alfa Brera with the optional hover package. Called the Alfa Romeo Spix flying concept car, it was designed by a 2-D/3-D artist from Belgium (we think) who posted pics of his creation along with an absolutely stunning video on CGfolks.com. Can you believe he does this for fun? (Actually, it appears he's begun a small design firm, but we can't confirm that due to the language barrier.) Known as Creatix on the CGFolks forum, the artist explains his attempt to fuse an impression of power and robustness in a design that reflects what Alfa Romeos might look like in 50 years. The concept is very creative and just goes to show how much untapped creative talent is out there. We're just saying, an automaker could do worse than having someone like Creatix on the payroll.

      Cool car. Now we have to figure out how to get it over speed bumps and gutters at four way intersections.

      I bought a new Alfa Romeo once...
      ...it lasted some 18 months, had to throw it away, faulty engine, no help from Fiat (and remember, Alfa is just an expensive Fiat)

      That was 2500 dollars out the window, wont be buying another, ever.

      ...looks isnt all!

      Hmmph I'll be sure and let everyone know when I want to buy a car that looks like the face of a Cylon raider.

      The Front is so-so, but the back would scare small children woth its uglieness. It Sucks! Even the I, Robot car was better.

      Building a 3D concept on a computer for show is easy, actually designing a car that works, works well, has good handling dynamics, comfortable seats, intuitive controls, meets street and safety regulations for a dozen countries and still manages to look attractive is incredibly hard. There's a lot more to it than knowing 3dsmax, and what carmakers need are people who understand complex engineering so that their customers don't die. I'm sure they could do worse than this artist, but this doesn't really demonstrate any real car design skills. It's just high tech doodling.

      Its as if its floating on air? But really, where are the wheels, its got to have some bling bling if its going to sell state-side. Americans lover their bling. Italians love their curves.

      It's just a design exercise...it's not a car. Slick video though.

      One of the best concepts that i've seen in the last 10 years.

      Cool none the less
