Built in conjunction with Alfa Romeo, Espera Sbarro presented the DIVA concept at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. Styling cues for the prototype hark back to Alfa Romeo’s past, and with its large gull-wing doors, the still unnamed designer is obviously influenced by the iconic Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale.
Unlike previous Alfa Romeo concepts, the Diva breaks barriers that Alfa Romeo’s own Centro Stile might not. For instance the front end treatment takes Alfa’s familiar face, but with a modern, more ’Formula One’ edge. And, unlike the flowing 8C Competizione released in 2003, the Diva is noticeably chiseled and features a bevy of hard lines.
The is no word on the specification or base model that the Diva sits upon, however the pictures tell us it is a small, mid-engine supercar, quite similar in proportion to the Lotus Elise.
Until March 12th, the Diva and several other Sbarro prototypes can be seen on their stand (2244 in Hall 2) at the Geneva Motor Show.
