Behold, the house of Alfa Romeo resounds with fervor, announcing the rebirth of the bespoke 33 Stradale — the embodiment of Italian flair for both style and driving. The new 33 Stradale, limited to just 33 units, is each handcrafted into a sports car that blends the heritage and future of Italian motoring.

And like the 1967 33 Stradale of yore, the new iteration of the 33 Stradale is born of audacity and innovation. Crafted at Alfa Romeo’s “Bottega,” it marries design, engineering, and history. The car’s grace and technology aim to thrill enthusiasts.

Alfa Romeo Centro Stile combines history with contemporary design elements. A balance of proportions and surfaces creates Alfa Romeo’s “necessary beauty.” Muscular and elegant, the car’s form evokes a feeling you could fly.

Inside, minimalism reigns. The cockpit, adorned with avant-garde displays and controls, offers an immersive experience for those few who will be lucky enough to drive one. Trim options “Tributo” and “Alfa Corse” envelop passengers in a world of materials like aluminum, carbon fiber, leather, and Alcantara.

The roots of the legend sprout from the 1967 33 Stradale, derived from the Tipo 33, a racing icon. The original 33 Stradale epitomized beauty and innovation. It was limited to 18 units between 1967 and 1969; it remains revered, birthing prototypes that have shaped automotive history.
