Say hello Alfa Romeo's forgotten spaceship
Feast your eyes on this beauty from Alfa Romeo
Back in 1976 at the Geneva Motor Show the Alfa Romeo 33 Navajo saw light for the first time. This concept design was the last one out of six cars based on the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. Two (including this one) was done by Bertone, one by Giugiaro and three by Pininfarina.
Also, thanks to its body totally being made from fibreglass it just weighs 870 kg which is light even compared to today's standards.
Just like other cars doing that period it had a wedge shape which was thought to help with aerodynamics. But the retractable headlights weren't on the bonnet like most pop-up headlights instead it came from the side fenders.
This beautiful Alfa Romeo had a 2-litre V8 that could produce 230 hp at 8800 rmp. Even if it was 3.8 meters long it is quite small considering that a Mini Cooper Countryman is 4.3 meters.
It wasn't only small it had rear wheel drive and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). And 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds which is at supercar speeds today.

The interior of the car had a screen behind the steering wheel that had everything on needed for the driver and a 6-speed manual gearbox.
