Alfa Romeo, the famous and renowned Italian luxury car manufacturer, just announced a new supercar concept to its lineup: the Montreal Vision GT. This masterpiece was born through a collaboration with Modena-based digital artist Luca Serafini who brings this outstanding and unique design concept.
Shown to the world for the first time on Luca Serafini’s page on Behance, the futuristic renderings of the modern car are the re-imagination of the Montreal coupe, which was first introduced in 1970. From its start in the early 1900s to becoming well-known in the 1960s for its small cars, precisely designed for the Italian police, Alfa Romeo reveals the Montreal Vision GT, a supercar concept on-par with any presently on the market.
“As a young boy, I can say it was the beginning of my growing love of the automotive world. Quite often I went downstairs to uncover the orange Alfa to see its reflections, lines, and shapes. Smelling the leather interior and acting like a pro driver. I loved the concave steering wheel, especially. Nowadays, it’s not a unicorn – but for me it was.”
According to Luca Serafini: “I tried to create subjectively something able to bring me back as a child. Something on 4 wheels that’s making you say WOW! (…) Back in 1986, my father bought a shiny orange Alfa Romeo Montreal. It was all original, except the exhaust system. I remember the night he came home with the quite irregular V8. He parked it in the rear garage. The smoke was surrounding it, and the first thing I saw was the red taillights and chromed mufflers.”
Obviously influenced by the original Montreal, the smooth and shiny design features Alfa Romeo’s signature triangular grille, hood-mounted vents, and the dual headlights below sloped slats. The modern design of this supercar also comprises an elongated hood, potentially as a front-engined platform, and a silhouette which is much curvier than many other Italian exotics. This Alfa Romeo’s eye-catching and unique design is both aggressive and beautiful, but we must agree: it is supreme!
