When Alfa Romeo was first founded in 1910 by the name A.L.F.A., they hired a chief engineer whose job was to design vehicles that were more suitable for the Italian market. This man was Giuseppe Merosi and his ideas gave them the A.L.F.A 24 HP and the A.L.F.A 40/60 HP which paved the way for Alfa’s entry into the racing scene. Now the man responsible for the Vittorio Jano Sport Wagon Concept, Marco Procaccini, is paying tribute to the Italian designer with the Giuseppe Merosi Design Study.

This 3-door coupe measures 4,300mm in length, 1,810mm in width, and 1,320mm in height, providing enough room for four occupants. It is distinguished by extremely aggressive lines, a pronounced Alfa Romeo grille, a V-shaped engine bonnet, LED headlamps, and an impressive set of wheels. However, one of the most interesting specifications for the concept is the addition of rear wheel drive, a concept long forgotten by Alfa Romeo after their ES30 (Experimental Sportscar 300).

Chances are we will not be seeing this design study anywhere near an open road, but, somewhere, Giuseppe Merosi is smiling at Procaccini’s tribute vehicle.

This is concept really have the right to be line up for future production. I wonder what does the Alfa Romeo waiting for. In case that it would be in production I would like to see its detailing in other model car.

Wow! I like the decent look of this car and I think this comes in a newer platform. The aerodynamic kit being offer is quite impressive and I think the LED of this car makes it more gorgeous.

This is the worst styling for the V-shaped engine bonnet that I’ve ever seen in the version of the Alfa. I think they made it so exaggerated, it doesn’t makes the car more aggressive but lame! I don’t like to see this on production.

Well, Alfa has always been so elegant, classy , light and beautiful. But I think this model is kind of opposite.

Hope Fiat keeps Alfa and does not squander their long and proud heritage.

Why bother presenting all these useless sketches lying onto the coffin of this hopeless bankrupt brand?

Front & rear design are nice (Maserati influenced) however the side proportions appear off. In addition the driver & passenger window split at the point of the review mirror.

I think in foggy weather the front lights will not manage to help smiley

Probably Alfa Romeo is watching the auto websites and is analyzing the impact it has on people. After that they will decide in what car segment they will want to stiff the new design elements!

This particular car I do not think will see the light as it is now!

This is just a 3D... when you suppose we will see the real model?

It has some elements, however the current feminine feline line that Alpha adopts is not in the same book as this aggressive masculine line, pretty similar to BMWs.

Alfa Romeo should get a good look at this one, it could be the base of a successful future SUV, perfect balance between the Alfa brand iconic details and the strength required by a SUV

This is exactly the production product Alfa needs "now". Far superior to the recently published sneak image Alfa/Fiat released recently.

well for me it looks great, but like what you’ve said there is no place for license plate, but i think you then put them on side just like the Mitsubishi evolution.

another delta air vents I wonder where will you put the license plate in front, good thing that this baby is still in sketchbook.
