Alfa Romeo Giulia SWB Zagato is finally presented to the world after numerous teasers. The design of this car is out of this world. You either love it or hate it. We, at the Alfisti Crew, adore it, however, while we do like eccentric and unique designs, we have to admit that this might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
The car is based on Alfa Romeo Giulia QV. It has a shortened wheelbase, and specs upgraded so it matches the one of the GTAm version.
The back end of the car is simply stunning. It has smooth well-designed lines which exude Italian style and sportiness.
The main feature which stands out is the taillight or the taillights. It follows the contour of the back end, and it simply looks beautiful.
The profile of the car reminds us of the previous models Zagato designed, and it is characterized yet again by smooth muscular design lines.
The front end of the car on the other hand is much more aggressive. By the looks of it, Zagato implemented the headlights from the Tonale, while it kept some of the design cues from the GTAm version as vent mesh and hood vents found in both GTAm, and QV versions.
The front end of the car could’ve been more refined in our opinion. The vents are seemingly too big while the bumper is essentially non-existent. However, they are the experts and they did create a design that certainly stands out from the crowd.
Engine and Transmission
The Alfa Romeo Giulia coupe is powered by the same engine found in the QV version. However, it is tuned to push out 533 horsepower. Unlike the GTAm version, this particular car comes with a manual transmission which makes it that more special.
If you ever wondered how this car was created, it was a special request by a German customer who has an appetite for special cars.
The price of this car has not been disclosed yet, but considering the price of the Giulia it has been based on, and the enormous amount of work that went into creating this car, it had to cost a fortune.
