Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta concept by Pininfarina – Click above for high-res image gallery

It's all about the anniversaries up here in Geneva. Alfa Romeo is celebrating its centenary, and like the show itself, Pininfarina is marking its 80th this year. And when a design house as venerated as Pininfarina is celebrating, you better believe it'll be mouthwatering.

The quizzically named 2uettottanta concept is Pininfarina's vision for how a next-generation Alfa spider should look. And we can't help but agree. The 2uettottanta represents the culmination of an age-old partnership between the two Italian firms, and pays tribute to the iconic 60s-era Duetto roadster. Power is (theoretically, at least) provided by a modest 1.7-liter turbo four, longitudinally mounted in homage to the 1750 Veloce.

We could go on about the details, but there's a press release for that. A Pininfarina concept is about design, and you can see it for yourself in the live and stock high-res image galleries below.

The spider of the future as seen by Pininfarina

To mark its 80th anniversary, Pininfarina proposes an "open" Alfa Romeo that is exciting and a delight to drive

For those who still like to dream in a car. For those looking for a mixture of vanity, entertainment, and the pleasure of life in the open air. For those who love icons as the greatest expression of the age we live in. For those who want their cars to be an uncommon sensory experience in terms of both style and driving, without being obsessed by performance. For those who want to be excited by a dynamic, sporty car that transmits the exclusiveness and refinement typical of an Alfa Romeo spider designed by Pininfarina.

For all of them, we present the 2uettottanta.

2uettottanta: a name that evokes the legendary Duetto, but also the years of activity at Pininfarina, which launches the celebrations for its 80th anniversary with this concept car. And it has decided to do so with a type of car that is by definition, the work of Pininfarina: an Alfa Romeo spider. A very Italian product, which has become an export brand, representing the inexhaustible talent that the whole world associates with Italy.

The 2uettottanta reflects Pininfarina's determination to look to the future with optimism following tradition, restating its excellence in design and its acknowledged capacity for aesthetic and technological innovation. It is a concept that represents an innovative approach, projected into the third millennium, to a topic that is firmly rooted in Pininfarina history, the 2-seater spider. And like the best Alfa Romeo sports cars to come from Pininfarina's pencil, the 2uettottanta exalts the driving experience and concentrates on the excitement of being at the wheel of an open car with a great aesthetic personality. It is a car that can make people dream and excites even after many years. The icon of a lifestyle that harks back to a lively, tumultuous period. Like the Duetto of the Sixties, which helped to establish a trend based on the themes of rebellion and escape, thanks to the film "The Graduate".

The 2uettottanta is also a tribute to Alfa Romeo, which celebrates its centenary in 2010: the alliance between Alfa Romeo and Pininfarina is one of the most significant and durable in the history of the car, one of men and of passion, of design and cutting-edge technical solutions, which has generated an inestimable number of good-looking, innovative cars with plenty of temperament. With a predilection for sports cars and convertibles. The aim is to replicate all this with the 2uettottanta. So a clean, elegant line was chosen for this "simple 2-seater", which is proposed with a 1750 cc turbo engine positioned longitudinally, an obvious reference to the "1750 Veloce" of 1968, one of the many versions derived from the famous "Osso di Seppia" (Cuttlefish). With its red bodywork, inspired by the typical Alfa Romeo paintwork, the 2uettottanta is 1797 mm wide, 4212.6 mm long, 1280 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2500 mm.

The pleasure of driving and feeling in harmony with nature is transformed into light, sleek, refined volumes, and shapes that seem to slip through the air easily. This generates the theme of this concept: the expression of a single volume, which is some way from the ground and suspended. The 2uettottanta almost seems to lift up from the ground "going further". It is an optical effect achieved thanks to a line that crosses the whole car horizontally. An uninterrupted sign applied to dynamic, sporty proportions – typical of Alfa Romeo spiders – accentuated by the configuration of the passenger compartment, which is shifted significantly to the rear. The force of the design lies in its exaltation of simplicity, which does not need to show its muscles but concentrates purely on agility and harmony.

The front end of the 2uettottanta underlines its true Alfa Romeo character. The design is simple, with a central line that runs smoothly along the nose of the car, while the execution of the surfaces is more sophisticated. At the centre, in full view, and anything but a purely decorative element, is the Alfa Romeo shield, which seems to emerge from the heart of the car and to stretch outwards, in Pininfarina's futuristic, three-dimensional approach. The shield is made of aluminium and incorporates floating horizontal flaps. On either side are the two triangular lateral air intakes. The two elements impressed on the imposing bonnet create a natural link between the logo and the large windscreen, which has been designed as a ring in hand-beaten aluminium that emerges from the body of the car without interrupting its flow. The front headlights, which adopt the latest LED technologies, are embedded under the line that gives the whole car its character. A strip of carbon in the lower part of the front acts as an air splitter, channelling the air to the rear end of the car.

The side view of the car, where the theme of the single volume is repeated, highlights the flowing line of the whole, with the shapes merging naturally. The horizontal line "cut" into the sides gives a sense of great dynamism; it starts from the front wheelarch and extends back to the rear wheel. Like an athlete, for a car, being slim also means achieving aerodynamic efficiency. Pininfarina has always strived for natural shapes that can convey efficiency and respect of the environment, an approach confirmed by its great commitment to the theme of eco-sustainable mobility. The 2uettottanta is in perfect harmony with nature, becoming the formal expression of a response to the needs of our day: it is an arrow that flies through the wind almost without encountering resistance.

Smooth, essential, soft surfaces even at the rear, which echoes the front, albeit with slightly more emphasis on the muscles. The design combines stylistic simplicity with a strong character in the volumes and proportions, with details designed to underline the car's dynamic, light personality. The two bumps seem to emerge from the volume, becoming floating wings that create the roll-over bars behind the seats. At either end, these bars generate an appendix designed to hold the seat belts. Even at the rear the light clusters are slender and embedded under the line that defines the whole section.

Great attention went into the design of the interior. The result is a spacious, comfortable passenger compartment, conceived with light, dynamic volumes, which envelop the occupants in a strong, reassuring embrace. The shapes are sewn into the leather, incorporating the touch controls: in its functions, the 2uettottanta is faithful to its vocation as a car designed to be a delight to drive. The facia extends fluidly to the sides merging into the doorway as the natural continuation of the volume of the car, thus creating a perfect symbiosis between exterior and interior. The dashboard has a driver-oriented configuration with an innovative approach to the classical circular Alfa Romeo "tubes" that contain the instruments. The tunnel contains the Alfa DNA gear selector in an ergonomic position; this varies the set-up of the car in three modes, Dynamic, Normal and All Weather, adapting the behaviour of the various systems on the vehicle (engine, transmission, suspension, steering, brakes, etc.) to the demands of the driver and the different driving conditions. The tunnel runs through the passenger compartment and it gives structure to the chassis, revealing the carbon elements: the choice of this material reflects Pininfarina's constant research into alternative materials that can make vehicles lighter, reducing consumption and emissions. Another strong element of the interior is the steering wheel, which is a modern interpretation of the Duetto's perforated three-spoke wheel, with the addition of a shift paddle for sequential control of the dual-clutch gearbox. An enjoyable drive and comfort are also guaranteed by the anatomical sporty seats. All the interior of the car "floats": the ventilation ducts are positioned between the passenger compartment and the hull.

The size and design of the tyres, which were created specifically for the 2uettottanta in collaboration with Dunlop, accentuate the impression of strong character and force given by the car. The tyres are of the low profile type, right on the extreme edges of the plane view: designed by Pininfarina to incorporate the innovative technologies developed by Dunlop, their graphics reflect those of the car. Their aerodynamic shape and very smooth lateral profile, guarantee better roadholding and less resistance to air, thus reducing consumption. The rims are treated in aluminium in harmony with the rest of the car, and are a free interpretation of the classic five-circle Alfa Romeo pattern, revealing the high performance carbo-ceramic Alfa Romeo brakes by Brembo.

The 2uettottanta is not a pure styling exercise, but also a project and research: the goal is to grasp the spirit of the spider in the configuration, the proportions and the conception of the car as well as in its stylistic imprint. This working method is part of Pininfarina's genes. For this project, the Pininfarina creative team were given carte blanche to express the values inherent in the Alfa spider "by Pininfarina", the values that are deemed to have made the Giulietta Spider or the Duetto all-time classics. To achieve this result, the car was given a particular set-up, with a low centre of gravity and a passenger compartment that is very exposed so as not to isolate the occupants from the surrounding environment. The result is to bring the road "nearer" to the eyes of the driver and to increase the sense of dynamism even at low speed.

What is the 2uettottanta effect? Desire. Whoever sees it "must" possess it, drive it, enjoy it. Because the 2uettottanta is not an unattainable dream. Nor does the 2uettottanta only want to impress at first glance, but to achieve a beauty that does not strive solely for immediate confirmation, but gradually reveals all its values and transfers them to the future, making the style eternal. As it did in the case of the Duetto, which continues to be celebrated as an icon of design after more than 40 years.

Alfa Romeo-Pininfarina, the story of a happy marriage

Back in the 1930s, the new Pininfarina company was offered an opportunity to create a Cabriolet type 6C 1750 Gran Sport for Alfa Romeo. This was followed by the Spider Sport Aerodinamico in 1935. For the new post-war Alfa Romeos, Pininfarina began small production runs of special versions. It was very slow at first, just 88 of the Cabriolet type 1900 C Sprint. The real milestone of the 1950s was the worldwide success of the Giulietta Spider, which was designed originally to be exported to the West coast of the United States and then sold all over Europe. It was the legendary success of this model, of which 17,000 were built in the Giulietta version and almost 10,000 in the Giulia version, that changed the future of Pininfarina and indicated its future industrial vocation. This success was matched only by that of the Duetto spider. In its original configuration, the Duetto – made famous by the film "The Graduate" with Dustin Hoffman – was presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show: radically revamped and with different names, it continued to be built by Pininfarina until 1993. The Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider, designed by Pininfarina, made their debuts at the 1994 Paris Motor Show; Pininfarina was also responsible for manufacturing from September 2000. In 2003 new versions of both the Spider and the GTV appeared, also designed by Pininfarina. Maintaining the tradition of "open" Alfas designed by Pininfarina, 2006 was the year of the new Alfa Spider (winner of the "Cabrio of the year 2006" title), which is still on the market in its 2008 Model Year version.

      could be a great competitor to the BMW Z4
      • 5 Years Ago
      Some overall aft quarter shots might be nice. Front shots are good, details are interesting... but I don't get much of a sense of the aft end.

      But all in all, it looks quite good. Would make a very nice successor to S2000, with Italian tailored styling, and just a bit up-market from Miata, and now dead Kappas, but not as $$$ as Z4 and Boxster. Something that real people can afford, which the original Alfa spyder was.

      It is nicely purposeful and pure. Pininfarina perhaps can design something that isn't needlessly complicated or disproportionate, like some of the new Ferraris.

      God, that is fantastic. My favorite of the show so far, followed the Porsche.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hey mnmlist I found your interior!!! :D

      btw its a great looking car hope they build it
        • 5 Years Ago

        What's to deny? Its really not that complicated. You brought it up anyway. You state, by your definitions , what luxury is. Basically anything over food, clothing, shelter. That opens up everything else to being a luxury item. What's so hard to understand about that? How old are YOU?
        • 5 Years Ago

        I'm not implying that I believe a tach is luxurious. What i am implying, based on the example definition via wiki which bigdumbface provided, the tach, yes, would have to be considered a luxury item. So bigdumbface would be the one implying that a wiperblade is too much. Read carefully next time.
        • 5 Years Ago
        only an idiot would pay more for a "feature" that doesn't actually help in any way shape or form and hurts the resale and reliability of the vehicle. computers dont last anywhere near as a car should last. and even if they did, what looks tackier than 15 year old "cutting edge technology"?

        your mom, that what

        i think a lot less of people who buy cars with touch screens in them and i completely avoid car companies that force them on you with bundled packages

        it indicates that they are very superficial and make purchasing decisions based on how cool they think it makes them look. small step the the doglets rolling around with 26" spinners and 5 screens playing a movie while they are the only one in the car

        if you want navi, there is an app for that on your trendy ass iphone, or you can buy one for about $50 that you can take with you and the problem is solved forever for all your cars now and in the future, but you wont be as cool so there is that...

        • 5 Years Ago
        Really like it. It's so restrained. It has almost an S2000 quality to it where simple works well.
        • 5 Years Ago

        Again, you are wrong. If you want to say luxury is "anything above strict necessity" then this Alfa happens to have a tachometer(luxury item). My econocar doesn't have one and it drives fine. This Alfa has leather seats(luxury item). This Alfa has air conditioning(luxury item). My fathers 1990 Isuzu didn't come with A/C. Its was an option, as it is too on the new Porsche Boxster Spyder. In fact, the whole Alfa in itself is a luxury item. Impractical by everyday grocery hauling standards. So again you are wrong.

        Sorry for the double post with your name.
        • 5 Years Ago

        I couldn't have said it better myself! You make perfect sense. Classic designs and timeless cars most often cars that don't have all these "at-the-moment gimmicks" that everyone forgets about after a couple years. This Alfa interior if built exactly like this in production is sure to be timeless. For the simple fact that its well..simple. People will remember and cherish this interior design. Trust me, no one is gonna care about how SYNC looked in a 2010 Ford Fusion. Bravo, naggs, bravo.
        • 5 Years Ago

        I'm not criticizing you love of simplistic designs, but you have no right to call me an idiot, so its a good thing you didn't.

        The ONLY point I'm making is despite all your silly examples, simplicity is not luxury.
        Mr. Webster says so. I have no opinion on the matter:

        "Simplicity: the absence of luxury."

        Nobody is saying that society is telling what to like.

        But yes, moron, society DOES get to tell you what is luxurious. Its a definition. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and has duck DNA... its a duck. mnmlist's opinion is not relevant.

        You don't have to like luxury. But you don't get to change terms.

        Society cannot tell you what to like, but they can give a definition.

        If Hyundai declares a division 'luxury' but makes it minimalistic, it is NOT more luxurious. Compared to Hyundai, for example, this new brand is not Hyundai's luxury brand, if Hyundai's have more features.

        Features are luxury. Extravagant shoes are more luxurious, regardless of buyer perception.

        You are mistaking 'luxurious' for 'better.' Better is subjective. Luxury is features. Yes, society wins. If you disagree with society, that is a sociopath, by definition.

        Knock it off. Not only have you been completely flucking wrong, you were an ass to boot just because you didn't like being told so.
        • 5 Years Ago

        I would call you an idiot. But I'm not. You are saying suede shoes are more luxurious than standard fake leather, right? Heres the kicker....more luxurious to YOU(or whoever else follows your rationale, probably 90% America, which is why we had a financial crisis...excess.) Some people may HATE the suede shoes, and absolutely love the fake leather. And guess what? The fake leather is cheaper in price....BONUS!!!! If you enjoy paying more because society states what is and isn't luxury then be my guest. I'll be the one with the money in my pocket at the end of the day wearing my fake leather shoes in the rain. Meanwhile, you'll either be dodging raindrops or spending even more money on a can of shoe fabric protector. Have fun with your luxury.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You then named some luxury items. Good for you, you're making progress.

        You don't get to say a car is more luxurious BECAUSE of a lack of features. That's the opposite.

        "More features, more luxury right? I think not. This "sports car" is luxurious to me because i feel less is more. But you seem to be generalizing luxury by saying is based on features alone."

        Your opinion is irrelevant. What you call luxury is in fact its opposite, by its very definition.

        "Luxury vehicle is a marketing term for a vehicle that provides luxury — pleasant or desirable features beyond strict necessity"

        You're contradicting your earlier post, but at least you're starting to get it. Features ARE luxury.

        "This Alfa has leather seats (luxury item)"

        You like simplicity, not luxury. That's the way it is, and that's the last thing left for you to get.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Could there come a point where the number of features between old and new makes one type of luxury better than another is a judgment call? I think I'd have to say absolutely.

        Whether you live in a techno-masterpiece apartment, or a castle, I think both qualify as 'living the life of luxury.'

        But I think a castle is likely to beat any apartment on sheer number of extravagant items. Every room ornately decorated? Even if it is old, there's more to 'oooh' and 'aaaah' at. The more stuff that took effort to create and money to buy should make old more luxurious than new.

        Now I'm not going to take that to an extreme and say old is always better than new, just that an opulent castle has a lot of 'extra' features that would cost money these days.

        Old versus new, which is better? I do agree that's a judgment call.
        But I think I'd have to say that if the old Rolls were the top of the line in 1972, and the new one is a bare-bones one for 2010, the 1972 one is more the luxury car, since the 2010 just doesn't stack up to other 2010 Rolls'.

        You're in a really odd state of denial. The only reason any of this makes sense to you is because you don't want to admit you're wrong, and can't take criticism.

        You're completely contradicting yourself at every turn now.

        Nothing you are saying in the last 2 posts is coming close to a legitimate answer. You are in complete contention with reality.

        You've got issues.
        • 5 Years Ago

        Luxury is whatever one chooses it to be. If, by what most people are telling me, that "features" make up a what a luxury car buyer wants then I guess if my Mercedes or Audi has more features, even if by just one feature more, than your BMW or Lexus then the Mercedes or Audi is more luxurious. I mean it could even be something as simple as an extra seat memory button or steering wheel or door lock feature. More features, more luxury right? I think not. This "sports car" is luxurious to me because i feel less is more. But you seem to be generalizing luxury by saying is based on features alone.
        • 5 Years Ago

        Big.Dumb.Face. Nuff said.
        • 5 Years Ago

        I understand what your saying about but you can't only base the definition of luxury on a checklist of options. I'm comfortable with other peoples opinion. Apparently, your not. So if hyundai starts a luxury brand, and has a minimalist design language, and designs an interior like the one in the is post and this being they're standard interior, are you gonna go tell them they're not a luxury brand? Or if, HYPOTHETICALLY speaking, Mercedes decides to go with this Alfa interior design language, will they instantly stop being a luxury brand because all of these "important features" are lost?

        Point I'm making is YOU don't get to decide what is luxury and what is not. You or a definition. Luxury to most people, including yourself, is an upgrade. To me and few others I'm sure, is not. Upgrading is not always a good thing. Luxury changes by the minute for most people in the same mindset as you. Its called "keeping up with the Joneses". For me, its easy, because like i said before...less is more. I don't spend my life struggling to keep up with the next feature. The simple, to me, is better aka more luxurious because I don't worry about stuff breaking, or resale value, or not having the latest tech or gadget. Simplicity affords that luxury.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I know everyone is gonna bash me and rate low for saying it, and I really don't care, and I know its only a concept but.....................................its refreshing to see a new car thats doesn't have a giant screen in the dash, I mean just for ONCE!!! A clean uncluttered dash! A simple well executed interior. Now take that same interior and put it in an Audi and we have a winner(I'm just playing guys relax...but a lot of truth is said in jest). But honestly why CAN'T they put this EXACT interior into say a Lexus or a Merc or i know....an Audi?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Holy Sh!t you guys it was a joke! LOL
        • 5 Years Ago
        Wiper blades are pretty much a necessity. Bad example.

        And no, mnmlist. You're the one who doesn't get it.


        "a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity:"

        Thats what it is! You don't get to change the definition based on opinion. I don't care if you don't like the source, thats the definition! Definition >>>>> mnmlists' opinion. Use a different word!

        "luxurious in its simplicity" or "less is more = luxury" are oxymorons. Nobody is wrong but you.

        Why are you so insistent on changing the terms? You like simplicity. Nobody would have a problem with that if you stopped getting it mixed up.
        • 5 Years Ago
        BigDumbFace is the name of a comedic band. Their music is funny to me.

        Shows I'm able to take criticism and have a sense of humor. Or at least someone who wasn't an idiot would have figured that out.

        You, on the other hand, are trapped in denial about your own stupidity. People are bashing you because you've developed a history of being annoying. There is no conspiracy against you. It is based on your performance.

        "Luxurious in its simplicity" in the case of this car is an oxymoron.

        You want a sports car. Even a well-designed sports car is not luxurious. Stop trolling the d@mned luxury car threads.
        • 5 Years Ago

        I don't mind you liking these simplistic cars. I'm not defending the need for technology.

        The problem is, we have folks here saying that features aren't luxury.

        Actually, that's the veritable definition of luxury.

        A simplistic car might have a few luxury features, but its the features that are luxurious, NOT the simplicity. No matter whose opinion that is.

        Clear as mud?

        I don't get to call a pig a cow. No matter how much I prefer calling a pig a cow, its a derned pig, dernit!

        mnmlist has been effectively doing the same thing as calling a pig a cow. "Well its my opinion".... so?

        That's the ONLY point I want to make, which I've been right about all along.

        Zamafir, chubaka, IdreamAudi, invisiblepigeon! Come see what i found!!!!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yes, compared to NOT having a car, any car is a luxury. I don't think anyone would disagree with that.

        But more checked options that are 'unnecessay' is MORE luxurious. That's how the scale works.

        A car that is a minimalistic car (no luxury items) is not luxurious... for a car. That's the definition.

        So... every time you say that "a lack of features is more luxurious," the world gets a bit dumber just because you said it. It is more-or-less. And you're backwards on it. Verified.

        You don't get to say this car is more luxurious than the Audi without being stupid. The Audi just is more luxurious. That's being objective, using only definitions and features list, therefore I am right.

        You're wrong because you're trying to be subjective about something that has a veritable definition.

        This is you versus reality. And your interpretation of the definition is just... wow... .stupid.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I know right?!!! I was commenting and as soon i pushed add i figured someone would let me know. Haha thanks! But honestly, can you see the beauty in the simplicity? Still luxurious, but simple. Easy on the eyes i must say...NEW WALLPAPER TIME.

      What platform is that?
        • 5 Years Ago
        How many time Fiat and Chrysler kept business conversations in top secret before announcing their partnership publicly? Long enough to catch even media people by surprise, as we even didn't read any rumor before. So, if they're in fact talking with GM to buy a good asset of the Old GM, it isn't so hard to keep it in secret, as they did with the alliance itself.
        As Fiat and Chrysler are still recovering from their really bad days, buying the rights of an already developed (and well-built) platform and only modifying it a little bit (to use Fiat and Chrysler components and solve mistakes as the tank placement and making it LHD and RHD-able) would cost less than develop an all-new basis. Replace external sheetmetal with Fiat or Chrysler, tune it to behave as Alfa as a full-blooded RWD Alfa and most people (even enthusiasts) wouldn't even care that some chromossomes from GM are in the DNA. People in Europe don't care that Grande Punto/Punto Evo shares a lot of genes with the Opel Corsa D.

        We must remember that, because of the huge number of of-the-shelf parts of Kappa platform, it becomes easy to find equivalent ones in other shelfs. Some examples:

        Engine: the Ecotec can be replaced by 1.8 DI Turbo for Alfa and by a 2.4 Global for Chrysler (imagining that a street version of Dodge Demon would be reality)

        Transmission: the one that is the same of GMT-355 trucks can be replaced by the one of Dakota or the 6-speed of the Challenger

        Rear axle: the one from CTS can also give way to a LX or LY one

        Steering: the system derived from Cobalt could have an equivalent derived from Bravo, Delta or Giulietta and also benefiting from the electrical assistence

        Maybe Fiat and Chrysler can manage Kappa much better than the Old GM did and using all the possibilities (stretcheable wheelbase, four-seating versions, etc) that the old owner didn't use.
