MILAN -- Alfa Romeo has revealed the 33 Stradale, a limited-edition “halo” sports car with a price tag of more than 1.5 million euros ($1.6 million) and inspired by the race car-derived 1967 33 Stradale.
The 33 Stradale was unveiled Wednesday at an event at the Stellantis brand’s museum in the Milan suburb of Arese. Alfa Romeo will build 33 examples of coupe, and all of them were sold at the end of 2022, the automaker said. The price was not disclosed, but a source familiar with the matter said buyers will pay 1.5 to 2 million euros, depending on special requests.
The cars will be assembled by the coachbuilder Touring Superleggera, whose shop is close to the Alfa Romeo museum. The first car will be delivered on Dec. 17, 2024, the 57th anniversary of the original 33 Stradale.
About two or three units will be built each month.
The 33 Stradale has similar specifications to the Maserati MC20. It will be powered by at 3.0-liter, V-6 twin-turbo engine that produces more than 620 hp, an evolution of the 2.9-liter, V-6 engine used in high-performance Alfa Romeo models such as the Giulia Quadrifoglio midsize sedan and Stelvio Quadrifoglio midsize SUV.
A battery-electric version also will be built, starting with deliveries in 2025, with an output of more than 750 hp and a range of more than 450 km (280 miles). The split between gasoline and electric models has not yet been determined, Alfa Romeo said. Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato said that most buyers had initially opted for the V6 but that some had changed their minds and chose the electric version.
The configuration of the electric version has not been finalized, Alfa Romeo executives said. It could have two or three motors, with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.
Both versions have a top speed of 333 kph (206 mph) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (0 to 62 mph) in less than three seconds. There are two drive modes, a softer road setting and a race-oriented track one.
