Alfa Romeo 33/2 Coupe Speciale

Alfa Romeo 33/2 Coupe Speciale by Pininfarina

If ever a 60’s Alfa Romeo were to rival the Tipo 33 Stradale (by Scaglione) for outrageously gorgeous design, it is this Pininfarina special. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti within the design studios at Pininfarina — it should no surprise that this Speciale started life as a Ferrari. Based on Fioravanti’s Ferrari 250 P5, updated the design for the chassis of an Alfa Romeo 33/2 and was debuted at the 1969 Paris Motor Show.

My reimagined version hasn’t deviated much from as originally debuted aside from minor changes that I’d make myself if I build a recreation of it.

As for Fioravanti? I bet most of you have never heard his name before but you will inevitably recognize the list of Ferrari’s he designed during his tenure at Pininfarina:
