Alfa Romeo Introduces Its New 33 Stradale Super Sports Car!

Based On The Maserati MC20, Only 33 Units Will Be Built...

Alfa Romeo, renowned for its legacy of exquisite automobiles, has again taken the automotive world by storm with the revival of a timeless icon, the “fuoriserie” (custom-built) 33 Stradale.

This limited-edition masterpiece pays homage to the historic 1967 model while boldly embracing the future of style and driving experience. With a mere 33 exclusive units, each a testament to the brand’s artistry and dedication, the 33 Stradale bridges the gap between Alfa Romeo’s storied heritage and its aspirations for innovation in Italian sportsmanship.

Drawing inspiration from the classic 1967 model, the Alfa Romeo Centro Stile meticulously crafted the new 33 Stradale, fusing the original’s sculptural beauty with contemporary design elements that embody the brand’s evolving style language. The car’s exterior is a symphony of proportions, volumes, and surface dynamics that embody Alfa Romeo’s intrinsic concept of “necessary beauty.”

The front design commands attention with a muscular stance and iconic shield, complemented by elliptical-base lighting. The profile boasts dynamism and elegance, with butterfly doors featuring large air inlets. The cabin’s wraparound sunroof and corner openings provide a unique cockpit-like view. The rear design, characterized by its “brutal” aesthetics, perfectly contrasts the front, creating a captivating visual journey. This harmonious design also serves aerodynamic efficiency, achieving a Cx of 0.375 without relying on active systems.

Inside, the focus is on driving engagement. The minimalist interior design minimizes distractions, with essential controls located on the center console. The 3D telescope display directly ahead of the driver offers an immersive interaction, while the steering wheel’s uncluttered design enhances the pure driving experience. The cockpit-style instrument panel features aviation-inspired materials like aluminum, carbon fiber, leather, and Alcantara. Wraparound seats, reminiscent of its predecessor, blend comfort and ergonomics seamlessly.

True to Alfa Romeo’s legacy, the 33 Stradale offers an extraordinary driving experience. The development team aimed to deliver a track-worthy performance in a road-worthy package without compromising comfort and safety. F1 driver Valtteri Bottas contributed to the car’s tuning, melding F1 expertise with everyday usability.

Powertrain options are awe-inspiring. A Maserati-sourced twin-turbo 3.0-liter “Nettuno” V6 engine delivers over 620 horsepower, harnessed through an eight-speed DCT gearbox and an electronic limited-slip differential for dynamic rear-wheel-drive performance. For those inclined towards an electric future, a BEV configuration yields over 750 horsepower, coupled with an estimated range of 280 miles (450 km) according to WLTP standards. Performance numbers are staggering, with a top speed of 206 mph and a 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) sprint in under three seconds.

The new 33 Stradale showcases Alfa Romeo’s engineering prowess and heavy-based on the Maserati MC20 super sportscar, featuring double-arm active suspension and a front axle lift system to navigate obstacles. A carbon-fiber and aluminum roof structure supports the iconic butterfly doors, while carbon-ceramic brakes promise outstanding stopping power.

An embodiment of exclusivity and craftsmanship, the 33 Stradale project led to the creation of the Alfa Romeo Bottega, a team that collaborated with customers to design 33 unique vehicles. This bespoke approach, reminiscent of Renaissance workshops, ensured each car was a personalized masterpiece. The collaboration began at the 2022 Monza Grand Prix, and within weeks, all 33 units were claimed. The Alfa Romeo Bottega operates within the historic Arese museum, a homage to the brand’s heritage. The 33 Committee, headed by the CEO of Alfa Romeo, guarantees the preservation of the brand’s essence.

Limited to just 33 units, the 33 Stradale promises a level of customization that is unparalleled. The collaborative design extends to functional stylistic elements, with each of the car’s air intakes, wheels, and front shield reflecting the owner’s personal touch. Moreover, customers can assign a personalized VIN, ensuring a truly unique bond with their vehicle.

Crafted by the renowned Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, the 33 Stradale encapsulates the essence of Italian craftsmanship and attention to detail. In every respect, the new 33 Stradale is a testament to Alfa Romeo’s history and its bold journey into the future.

The question must be asked and Dodge fans deserve an answer. If it is now acknowledged that this new Alfa Romeo is spun off the Maserati MC 20 can Stellantis deny Dodge their own Viper spin off that uses Dodge engines and styling to produce a next generation, more affordable spun off Viper? Sure it would need a facility upgrade for much greater production volume in Italy but this Viper would not be more than a brand halo car and not a volume Corvette fighter. If numbers are perhaps a few thousand per year and ways can be found to bring costs down by eliminating non-fundamental structures or compromise mechanical integrity, then it demands serious consideration. Hey if the Chrysler Crossfire, a true modern classic and performance icon that is now a sought after collectible can be built in Germany, why not a Dodge built in Italy where the best sports car are historically built? The key is using Dodge engines or a Dodge modified Alfa engine for motivation and Dodge styling cues.
A Viper replacement is fundamental to Dodge success, especially if the all electric strategy falls flat on its face, as I predict and the Hurricane is not embraced by Dodge fans, then the Viper might save the day.
Sure it’s a stretch, but if Alfa Romeo, a volume brand gets theirs, Dodge should get theirs too. Right?

No Viper is not fundamental to Dodge’s success nor is necessary. It was a halo car and would be a halo car.
Alfa’s Ferrari built engines are dying away with this 33 Stradale.

Don’t get me wrong. I want to see a Viper’s successor, but not just another sports car with a Hurricane engine. I want to see it with special engine like the previous V10.

V10s sound like a badly tuned tractor, how fast they are doesn't matter.... the exhaust tone is only thing that matters.

The current Halo is the Demon.... Likely will be a Daytona that is quicker.

A V10 based on the Hurricane even hand built for a New Viper would be cool, but not needed.

The V10 was known for its horsepower and torque. Yes it’s outdated even more than the HEMI.
A 1000 hp hybrid Hurricane would be fitting for a Viper.

I’ll take my Viper anyway it’s delivered, no matter the platform, no matter the engine, but I bet it’s off something in house. The definition of vital is subjective, but let’s face it Dodge needs a halo performance car beyond Challenger and realistically I think the Maserati GT holds the answer. I think I could make a persuasive argument that this platform spin off is reasonable and by some measure, vital. We agree a Viper replacement would benefit Dodge. Agreed?
