Alfa Romeo (Alfa Romeo) recently released the 33 Stradale supercar, which provides a V6 engine and pure electric power versions. The V6 version will also be the last pure-fuel supercar of the brand.
33 Stradale is custom-built, limited to 33 vehicles, and all of them are currently sold out. It is planned to be delivered to the first customer on December 17, 2024, and all deliveries will be made by 2026. It is understood that the price of each car is about 1.7 million pounds (IT home note: the current price is about 15.759 million yuan), making it the most expensive Alfa Romeo so far.
Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale basically continues the styling style of the 33 Stradale model launched in 1967, and retains the brand’s iconic inverted triangle front grille design. Meanwhile, the latest Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale uses a carbon fiber monocoque and an aluminum H-body frame, with a drag coefficient of 0.375.
The car uses many mechanical lever designs in terms of function control, and the interior materials are mostly made of aluminum, carbon fiber, leather, and Alcantara. Thanks to the customized production method, buyers of the 33 Stradale can even participate in the production process, such as co-developing functional exterior details with the Alfa Romeo development team, including air intakes, wheel rims and front body panels, and even customers. You can choose the 8-digit combination in the VIN code. Therefore, Alfa Romeo also stated that no two 33 Stradales are exactly the same.
Buyers have a choice of two powertrains: a 739-horsepower all-electric model or a mid-rear 641-horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 gasoline model. The latter is a pure fuel vehicle, weighing about 1500 kilograms, and 10 V6 engine models and 2 electric models have been confirmed to be ordered.
The electric powertrain on the pure electric model is the first for Alfa Romeo and is said to be equipped with a battery large enough to provide a range of 280 miles (about 450 kilometers) under WLTP conditions, but details have not yet been announced. A three-motor four-wheel drive system similar to that used in sister brand Maserati’s new GranTurismo Folgore is used.
The gas-powered V6 was an uprated version of the 2.9-litre unit used in the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglios, with more displacement and 131 more horsepower. Drive to the rear wheels was through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, and no manual was offered. With a 0-62 mph time of under 3 seconds and a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h), the gas model lives up to its name, while the electric version is “under 2.5 seconds” and offers the Strada (on-road ) and Pista (track) two driving modes.
The new car uses self-carbon ceramic ventilated brakes, with six-piston calipers on the front wheels and four-piston callipers on the rear wheels. To keep weight down, the 33 Stradale’s monocoque chassis was made from carbon fiber, the body frame was made from aluminum, and a striking butterfly door design was used.
In addition to the 33 Stradale, Alfa Romeo also plans to launch two new SUVs, a small SUV Tonale and a compact SUV Brennero, as well as an all-new Giulia sedan. These models will be available in pure electric or hybrid versions to meet the growing demand for low-carbon vehicles.
