Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept shows it face at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 6, 2013

The Alfa Romeo Style Centre and design students worked together to build the 'Gloria' Concept currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show. Fiat & Chrysler Design chief Lorenzo Ramaciotti said that in this project, the Master in Transportation Design students gave "their completely independent interpretation of a new Alfa Romeo saloon."

Even if it’s just a styling exercise, the vividly designed Gloria was brought to the European Design Institute display. The Gloria borrows a few design cues from various Alfa Romeos (old and new) but it keeps the typical saloon car dimensions with a focus on passenger comfort and space.

It is powered by some very advanced V6 or V8 bi-turbo engines. According to Lorenzo Ramaciotti, they guided the projects so that they can get the most from their “spontaneous expressions of creativity.” By doing so, the product became stimulating and was “marked by professional and creative excellence.”

Alfa Romeo is slated to launch the Giulia, a new saloon, in 2014 to be the replacement of the 159 in the inactive executive saloon segment. After the Giulia saloon is launched, it will be the turn of an estate version, which is a lot like the 159 (the Giulia's predecessor). It will have the same underpinnings as the Giulietta hatch and Dodge Dart. But of the three, it will be the largest model.
