The Fiat Group has got big plans for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The Italian automaker will, first of all, be unveiling rebadged versions of existing Chrysler group products for the European market, with a Dodge rebadged as a Fiat and several Chryslers anticipated to debut with Lancia nameplates as well. But what of Alfa Romeo? According to reports, the hottest of Fiat's core family will roll in with an all-new concept car.

Tentatively dubbeed the 4C GTA, the show car is tipped to pack a 265-horsepower 1.7-liter turbo four into a svelte coupe package. Like the MiTo and Giulietta, the 4C will likely take its design cues after the 8C Competizione (and hopefully a little from the Pininfarina 2uettotanta pictured above) only slotting in below the eight-cylinder supercar in the company's line-up.

Of course it would have to be approved for production first, and right now all we've got are rumors from our unrelated Hellenic compatriots, so stay tuned.

      That Duettotanta is SOOOO flippin' hot.

      (and no it is not 2uetto... Italic cursive capital letter I looks like a stylized 2.)

      Just build it. Sell it as a 2-door convertible, and a 3-door coupe. (think of a junior 8C Competizione, with something like 8C's fastback roof on the Duettotanta's body otherwise.)

      Build it with the engine between the firewall and front axle line, and a slick transaxle gearbox in the rear axle, manual or automated-clutch, not slushbox automatic.

      Sell it in the US.

      Price it between the Miata and the Z4, in S2000's old price point slot. This car is better looking than both of those.

        Sorry... typo.

        capital D is like a stylized 2 in cursive.

      Fiat has been getting all sorts of accolades in the automotive press for their attempts to turn Chrysler around. Yet the success of Alfa Romeo has eluded Fiat for two decades. I am very skeptical that Fiat has the capability or the audacity to offer a proper Alfa Romeo to the road-going public.

      This is a beautiful beast of a vehicle.

      265 hp from a 1.7L engine? YES!

      even better is the alfa tz3 concept. 1800 lbs with a 4.7L V8

      I always hated Alfa Romeo because their unique triangular grill looked hideous to me, but this... this is just... SEXY. The first Alfa Romeo that I actually liked.

      Bring Alpha Romeo to North America!
        • 3 Years Ago
        Alfa Romeo is coming to North America, by 2012 I believe.

      that is so beautiful. Current styling trends in all cars are to add huge chunks of ugly fake black plastic intakes all over the front. Large black plastic surrounds around flog lights. LED strips and or chrome strips.

      This front is so clean. A beautiful sculpture.

      That car is absolutely gorgeous. Buying an Alfa is never a rational decision but is rather the heart overriding the mind.

      Well, a lot of reports say that this is going to be nased on the Challenger's LC platform.

      The current Spider is already being criticized for weight issues, and being based on a 400 frame isn't going to help Yes, the Challenger is a good muscle car, but it has serious weight issues, and those issues are going to be even worse by basing t off the Challenger.

      I'd suggest that it be built on the Mercedes SLK platform. Price it at BMW Z4 level, and offer a shooting brake (Brera?)

        Typo. I meant "4000 pound frame" instead of "400."
