The ‘Alfa Romeo Montreal Vision GT’ Looks Like the Future of Italian Horsepower
Alfa Romeo doesn’t have a true supercar in its current lineup. But if the storied marque did unleash a model that’s on-par with flagship offerings from Ferrari and Lamborghini, this “Montreal Vision GT” would absolutely compete in the looks department.
The striking concept comes from Modena, Italy-based digital artist Luca Serafini’s page on Behance—the same artistic social media platform that’s brought us creative images of a would-be Tesla pickup and this wild Dodge Demon Shooting Brake hot rod-hatchback mashup.
This design is a very modern reimagining of Alfa’s retro Montreal coupe, which was first introduced in 1970. Serafini was inspired by his personal experiences with the vehicle.
“Back in 1986, my father bought a shiny orange Alfa Romeo Montreal,” Serafini notes. “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.”
“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.”
As Motor 1 reports, Serafini’s concept is clearly influenced by the original Montreal, right down to Alfa’s signature triangular grille, hood-mounted vents, and the dual headlights below sloped slats.
Its silhouette and curved lines, however, are much less angled than those of many other Italian exotics. An elongated hood suggests a front-engined platform with room for a big V8 or even a V12, but Serafini didn’t offer any details on powertrain.
The Montreal Vision GT is only one of Serafini’s many gorgeous designs. After basking in the multi-colored renderings above, check out more of his work via the ‘grams below:
