Alfa Romeo 12C GTS Concept
Anyone who is fanatically up to date with their Corvette-based sports cars will have heard of the name Ugur Sahin. That’s because last year he managed to take his Corvette Z03 from concept to reality, albeit under the new name “Anadi”. So it’s with more than the customary pinch-of-salt that his latest computer creation should be taken.
The Alfa Romeo 12C GTS is a sports car concept which is design to capture the classic appearance of historic Alfas, and wrap it up in a modern package. Unlike his previous design the 12C GTS has no obvious model on which it is based. And as such there are no drivetrain details or engineering specifications of any kind. Yet.
According to Ugur Sahin Design: “The main goal of this design is to reinterpret Alfa Romeo’s historical lines, surfaces and styling cues with fresh perspective and state of mind in order to create an appealing design and combining the familiar design language of Alfa Romeo combined with sharper lines and surfaces without losing the organic attractiveness of the car.
One of the main features of the design is the way its stance is shaped. As a whole it gives you the impression of “forward-movement” even while standing still. The iconic Alfa Romeo Grille hosts the center of the organic lines which flow towards the back and around the car with minimum distraction and maximum visual impact. The way the front is designed consists of two different shape compositions to make the face of the car sporty and aggressive, yet so appealing.
The side silhouette creates a balanced front-to-back ratio that grabs your attention with proper proportional balance and the perfectly straight line that divides the upper and the lower parts of the car seamlessly wraps around the back making the car look as a whole.”
At the moment the Alfa Romeo 12C GTS is just a series of pretty pictures. Pretty pictures Sahin hopes to again turn into something real. At the moment him and his team are seeking investors and potential clients with a view to producing the car in limited numbers.
