Alfa Romeo and notable design house are both celebrating anniversaries this year so it was a logical move for both companies to figure into a partnership of sorts. The result of that collaboration is a new Alfa Romeo concept that celebrates both Alfa’s 100th anniversary and Pininfarina’s 80th anniversary.

There aren’t a lot of details about the car that have been released yet although Pininfarina did come out with a couple of teasers in the past with the latest being released only today.

Continued after the jump.

From what we know, the man behind the two-seat Alfa spider is Lowie Vermeersch, who at 35, has risen to the title of Design Director after beginning his career at Pininfarina as an intern only ten years ago. Judging from the teaser sketch released by Pininfarina, the Alfa Romeo spider concept could be a likely successor to the Alfa Romeo Duetto, a car that Alfa has been planning on reviving for quite some time now.

Despite the constant fodder over what this car would look like when it makes its debut, the teaser sketch still leaves a lot to the imagination. Nonetheless, we should at least expect more info regarding this spider concept from Alfa Romeo and Pininfarina in the near future.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Personally, I think it is simple and beautiful. I love how the fender line continues through the top of the door and wraps inward to terminate behind the driver.

Well it’s definitely different, wouldn’t know just yet if good different or weird different. At least it is original design. It’s just that most super cars nowadays seem to look like each other. Some cars looks like Lotus and some looks like McLaren. There aren’t that much excitement anymore with the looks. Only the concept cars are new but they don’t go into production so it kills the excitement and thrill about it.

This Alfa Romeo is not even comparable with Porsche but i’ll definitely say that it’s one of the best looking car.
