Alfa Romeo’s Legacy of Excellence

This latest accolade for the 33 Stradale joins a celebrated lineage of award-winning models including the Brera, 8C Competizione, 8C Spider, TZ3, and the 4C Concept. Alfa Romeo remains the only brand to have clinched both the “Coppa d’Oro” and the “Design Concept Award” in the same year. This extraordinary achievement was first realized in 2002 with the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 and Alfa Romeo Brera, and again in 2012 with the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS (series 6, 1933) and Alfa Romeo 4C Concept.

A Tribute to Timeless Beauty and Innovation

The spotlight at this year’s event was firmly on the new 33 Stradale, a model that epitomizes Alfa Romeo’s blend of design excellence and driving dynamics. This bespoke, limited-edition vehicle draws direct inspiration from the Tipo 33, a legendary name from the 1960s, celebrated as one of the most beautiful cars ever crafted. With only 33 units being produced, this two-seater coupé merges artisanal craftsmanship with cutting-edge design, reminiscent of the Renaissance workshops and the storied ateliers of Italy’s famed coachbuilders.

The 33 Stradale’s success at Villa d’Este is a testament to its sculptural beauty and innovative design elements, which showcase Alfa Romeo’s evolving aesthetic. The question now stands: is this the most beautiful new supercar on the market today?
