A current topic of the last years, specially for the sports car, is the comeback of the “one-off”. Fioravanti, in its 20th anniversary of activity, caters to the Alfa Romeo lovers proposing this concept, previously showed in Geneva, as base for single pieces.
The technical layout that Fioravanti suggest with Vola is the famous and typical Alfa Romeo “transaxle” and it’s possible to adapt with few modifications the existing “transaxle” mechanics.
The aim is to give again to the passionate of this glorious brand the typical Alfa Romeo values of agility, sensibility and enjoy of driving. The rotating roof that characterize this concept is an innovative and extremely simple solution and it can operate both automatically or manually. It’s the same system that Ferrari has used for the limited series of 575 Superamerica, such system let to obtain evident advantages for: weight saving, room for luggage and very slight variation in the “baricenter” of the car between open or closed roof.

Designed and developed at the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, this prototype will become a true brand icon, evoking a great sports car tradition of which the name is part. In the Thirties and Forties, the ’8c’ signature that returns here, identified the racing and road cars that were equipped with the new eight cylinder engine developed by the famous engineer Vittorio Jano. The term ’Competizione’ on the other hand, is a tribute to the 6C 2500 Competizione, the sports coupé driven by Fangio and Zanardi (...)
