How The 1995 Alfa Romeo Castagna Vittoria Resurrected And Old Coachbuilding Name

This Weird Looking Alfa Romeo Resurrected the Castagna Vittoria Coachbuilding Name

Castagna is an old name that dates back to 1849

It started when Carlo Castagna bought Ferrari's coachbuilding business

Castagna built the 1933 Lancia Astura S2 Aerodinamica and 1939 Alfa Romeo 6C Castagna Berlinetta to name a few

But by 1954, the company had ceased operations

However, it was resurreced in the 1990s by Uberto Petra and Gioacchino Acampora

The former was a businessman and the latter - an automotive designer

They came up with the Alfa Romeo Vittoria in 1995

The car was named after Uberto's daughter

It was based on the also weird Alfa Romeo SZ/RZ

Which, in turn, was based on the Alfa Romeo 75

A 3.0-liter Busso powered the Castagna Vittoria

An output of 320 horsepower and 260 pound-feet was claimed

Apparently, the car was capable of 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph

Upgraded suspension, bigger brakes and 18-inch magnesium wheels were also added

The one-off car scores a...unique design

Gioacchino Acampora was responsible for the design

According to some, the front and rear looked like there was missing bodywork

The inside was very similar to the SZ/RZ on which it was based

Wood inserts and lots of green leather and Alcantara were the main highpoints of the interior

After 1995, Gioacchino Acampora used the Vittoria as his personal car

The car spent most of its life on the outskirts of Milan

In 2010, it was fully restored

And attended lots of exhibitions

It was reportedly auctioned-off on June 28 2021, for around $238,000

To this day, Castagna continued work on other projects, the last of which unveiled in 2020
