Pininfarina is celebrating its 80th anniversary with the unveiling of the 2uettottanta concept today at the Geneva Motor Show. The concept’s name makes reference to both the legendary Duetto, but also the years of activity at Pininfarina. The concept is also an homage to the Alfa Romeo’s centenary.
The 2uettottanta is a 2-seater spider, featuring a clean and elegant design and powered by a 1750 cc turbo engine positioned longitudinally, an obvious reference to the "1750 Veloce" of 1968. The concept’s exterior red paint is also inspired by the typical Alfa Romeo paintwork.
The 2uettottanta’s front is inspired by Alfa Romeo models and features a shield made of aluminum and incorporating floating horizontal flaps, two triangular lateral air intakes, front headlights with the latest LED technologies and a strip of carbon in the lower part of the front that acts as an air splitter.
On the interior, the dashboard has a driver-oriented configuration with an innovative approach to the classical circular Alfa Romeo “tubes” that contain the instruments. There is also a a modern interpretation of the Duetto’s perforated three-spoke wheel, with the addition of a shift paddle for sequential control of the dual-clutch gearbox.
