Click to view the 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale in hi-res

As if Alfa Romeo didn't come to Geneva with enough eye candy, sitting at the back of its booth at the Palexpo, behind the new 8C Spider and updated Brera, Spider and 159, sat a rare classic supercar, bathed in more red lights and surrounded by more mirrors than an Amsterdam window.

The 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale was, for all intents and purposes, the Bugatti Veyron of its day. It was the most expensive road car available to the public. Only 18 were ever made. Its 2-liter V8 was pulled directly from Alfa's racing cars, bearing no relation to the production units of the time, and featured such advanced systems as fuel injection and dry-sump lubrication. It sported butterfly doors long before they appeared on the likes of the Ferrari Enzo and McLaren F1. And it was and remains unspeakably gorgeous, like a true Alfa supercar should be. We had fun photographing this stunning beauty, and bring you the results in the gallery below.

      Just an example for the technological and stylistical powress of Alfa Romeo, maybe those wondering why the 8C will be produced in such small numbers and with such high price can get some answers. The pre-war 6C 2300B is another example of the true beauty of alfa, as are the achievments in F1 racing.

      That is the most beautiful man-made object ever.

      Think where automotive design could be now were it not for Ralph Nader and personal injury lawyers.
