Alfa Romeo Montreal rendering reimagines 1970s icon
The original concept was unveiled at Expo 67 in Montreal
The Alfa Romeo Montreal was produced from 1970 to 1977
The Alfa Romeo Montreal has a special place in our hearts, namely because we are based in Montreal. The original car was unveiled at Expo 67 which was held 10 minutes from our offices.
This Alfa Romeo Montreal rendering by Pedro Ruperto Mallosto published on Behance reimagines the Montreal as a modern coupe. We think this would make a fantastic successor to the Alfa Romeo 8C as Alfa’s next supercar.
Alfa Romeo has been around for 110 years and as such has a stable of iconic models. The Montreal was the flagship Alfa Romeo in the 1970s alongside the Alfetta and Alfasud.
This particular rendering was created as a tribute to the Montreal’s 50th anniversary. It was submitted to the #montrealdesignchallenge launched by Alfa Romeo design boss Klaus Busse. The rendering was chosen as a runner-up by Busse and FCA Head of Design Ralph Gilles.
The four-leaf clover fog lights are an incredible touch. The rendering keeps the distinctive slats down the C pillar as well.
We could definitely see this rendering become a new flagship for the Italian automaker. Something with a plug-in hybrid powertrain and while we are it, all-wheel drive.
It would certainly shine a new light on Alfa Romeo that has struggled to gain a firm hold on the North American market since its return.
