Mazda and Fiat’s Agreement Sets Pininfarina Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta Concept for Production in 2015
Especially built for the motorist who sees the car as an uncommon sensory experience, looks for an exclusive mixture of entertainment and vanity, who enjoys life in the open air, and one who wants to be excited by a dynamic, sporty car that transmits to observers the exclusiveness and refinement typical of the Pininfarina designed iconic Alfa Romeo sports cars, here’s the 2uettottanta Concept, a car that expresses the inexhaustible creativeness and genius of Italian craftsmanship. Originally debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show as an 80 years celebration of Pininfarina designs and a tribute to Alfa Romeo, which celebrated its centenary in 2010, this two-seater Alfa Romeo Roadster inspired by the 1750 Veloce of 1968 will now be set to make its way to production in year 2015. As Fiat Group Automobiles and Mazda Motor Corporation officially announced the signing of the deciding agreement which will see Mazda produce a powerful open-top two-seater sports car for Fiat’s Alfa Romeo brand, starting from year 2015.
To be developed for the global market, the new Alfa Romeo Roadster will be based on the advanced architecture of the next-generation Mazda MX-5.
Notably, the agreement foresees for both Mazda and Fiat to develop two brand-specific, differentiated, and distinctly styled roadsters which will feature the high-end rear-wheel drive.
And the Fiat’s Alfa Romeo and Mazda roadster variants will each be powered by highly-advanced, specific proprietary engines which will be unique to each automaker.
Speaking about the Pininfarina Alfa Romeo 2uettottanta Concept, it represents the culmination of an old age partnership between two legendary Italian firms, and pays tribute to the iconic Duetto roadster of the 60s era.
Notably, the machine’s steering wheel will be a striking element, as it’s a modern rereading of the Duetto’s three-spoke perforated steering wheel, incorporating a shift paddle for the sequential control of the dual clutch transmission.
And, the tyres that have been created specifically for the 2uettottanta in collaboration with Dunlop, accentuate the impression of a strong personality and power given by the car.
Further, an enjoyable drive and comfort are also guaranteed by the sporty, anatomical seats of this sports car designed to enjoy.
