Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia Spider Rendering is a Speedster We’d Love to See Built

Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia Spider is La Doce Vita in virtual sheetmetal

This stunning rendering is a concept for a new Alfa Romeo design that pays tribute to the brand’s accomplishments in the legendary Mille Miglia road rally from days past. The Mille Miglia Spider is the creation of Italy’s IAAD student Francesca Fonio and posted to Behance, and it’s a celebration of La Doce Vita.

The mood board for the design shows that the inspirations were the creation of simple but safe surfaces, dynamic movement, purity and classicism, and giving importance to details. That’s if our Google Translator is on the ball today. With keywords of lightness, dyamic, and moovement, Fonico’s early sketches of the design give a rare look into the process of bringing an idea for a new design to life.

We’d call the look inspired by classic Alfas, especially the open-top 8C 2900B Lungo Spyder, currently one of the most valuable cars in the world. But, far from being a copy, this rendering brings its own speedster cues to the final product.

Wheels inspired by those of modern and vintage Alfas (with the five-hole look one of the first parts of the earliest sketches), with a matching motif in the rear taillights, this is a stunner. Just look at the bulging rear fenders, that look to stand off of the Kamm tail grey rear bodywork that itself looks almost uncomfortably like a pair of lips.

Not likely production capable, this is concept car at its finest. Maybe as a seven-figure flagship, but that would take more luck than a quadrifoglio can give you. A shape that looks like it could be real, but that would be equally at home in a museum. Would we love to drive it? Yes. Would we love a sculpture of it on display? You bet.
