Alfa Romeo has always been guilty of creating amazingly beautiful cars that ooze Italian flair. It doesn’t matter which year we’re talking about, the company is responsible for some of the best-looking cars to ever grace the world’s roads. What you see here is the reimagining of a classic Alfa Romeo that’s often regarded as the best-looking Alfa ever made, the 1967 33 Stradale. With all the modern manufacturing processes in play along with the styling that’s synonymous with the brand, this limited-edition modern interpretation of the 1967 classic is as good as it gets. “With the new 33 Stradale, we wanted to create something that lived up to our past, to serve the brand and to make the Alfisti fandom proud. Such a result could only have been achieved thanks to the expertise, hard work and passion of our team, with the support of management who have the clear ambition to contribute to writing chapters in the brand's future, in full respect of its unique history,” said Jean-Philippe Imparato, CEO of the Alfa Romeo brand. “This is the brand's first fuoriserie (custom-built) car since 1969, and I promise it won't be the last.” Handcrafted at the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, the tailor-made quality standards mean an obsessive attention to detail, and each car is designed to be a unique, one-off work of art, becoming part of Alfa Romeo's history. 

The car manages to stick to the original lines of the classic with just enough modern flair to make it look as stunning as the ‘67 original. Having butterfly doors is just a cherry on top. The 33 Stradale can be had in two trims; Tributo and Alfa Corse and both feature a minimalistic design with a limited number of controls and buttons to keep the focus on the task of driving. There aren’t even any controls on the steering wheel. The controls that are in play have a layout like in a cockpit with some found overhead. Cool. The two models have different drivetrains available. One will be fitted with a twin-turbocharged V6 that will have over 620 hp on tap, and that will be directed to the rear wheels only via an automatic 8-speed DCT transmission and with an electronic limited-slip diff to aid in traction. The second option will be the more modern one and will have more power on tap. Adding in slime electric power this version will have over 750 hp to play with, and still have a nice 450 km range. To make it a harder choice for prospective buyers, both of the cars are reported to have the same brilliant performance. These modern 33 Stradales will hit 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds and will have a top speed of 333 km/h. The 33 will be at home on the racetrack even though it’s made for a comfortable drive on winding country roads. To get the handling prowess nailed down, Alfa Romeo is working with Finnish F1 driver Valtteri Bottas at the Balocco Proving Ground in Vercelli province of Italy. This new 33 Stradale is a perfect homage to the 60s original, and there will be 33 very happy Alfa Romeo collectors taking delivery of the limited edition car in the near future. There are some great features and brilliant technological things wrapped up in this special car, but Schmee will take you through that.

Take a look at the YouTube video from a man who knows all about modern supercars and hypercars, Shmee, as he takes us on a visual tour of the amazing new Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale that has to be one of the best-looking cars of this kind we've seen. But that's typical of limited edition Alfa Romeos, or most top-spec ones anyway. In fact, we prefer the offerings from Alfa Romeo over the things from sister company Ferrari: New ALFA ROMEO 33 STRADALE! First Look at the LIMITED EDITION Return of an Icon | Shmee150
