The Alfa Romeo 1750 Berlinetta by Giugiaro.

Vehicle Overview

The Alfa Romeo 1750 Berlinetta holds a unique place in automotive history as the first design by SIRP, a company founded by the legendary Giorgetto Giugiaro, which later evolved into Italdesign. Conceived as a prototype for Alfa Romeo’s Centro Stile (design center), this coupe model aimed to succeed the iconic Giulia GT, boasting the mechanics of the new 1750 model. Despite its innovative design and promising features, only a single prototype of the Alfa Romeo 1750 Berlinetta was ever produced. Regrettably, it never saw the light of day in public exhibitions, as it was deemed too advanced for production at the time. Nevertheless, its bold and forward-thinking design laid the groundwork for future developments in automotive design. Six years later, the design cues and concepts pioneered in the Alfa Romeo 1750 Berlinetta found new life in the Alfetta GT, which made its debut in 1974. The Alfetta GT, influenced by the prototype’s visionary design, embodied a new era of Italian automotive excellence, blending style, performance, and innovation in equal measure. While the 1750 Berlinetta may have been ahead of its time, its legacy lives on through the Alfetta GT and subsequent models that drew inspiration from its groundbreaking design. As a testament to Giugiaro’s visionary talent and the innovative spirit of Italian car design, the Berlinetta prototype remains a symbol of creativity and innovation in the automotive world.
