the car that inspired the Alfa Romeo 4C - 33 Stradale

1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale

First built in 1967, the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale was based on the Autodelta Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 race car,which competed in the World Sportscar Championships. The team took second at Daytona and swept 1-2-3 at Le Mans.


The road car made its debut as the Stradale at the 1967 Turin Motor Show, designed by Franco Scaglione and built by Carrozzeria Marazzi. While there is some debate regarding the actual production number, 18 were reportedly made. Stradale translates as “road going” and is thought by many to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time. Examples typically auction for $2-3 million (U.S.)

The mid-engine rear-wheel-drive sports car featured butterfly doors and weighed in at 1,543 pounds. It was powered by a 230-hp 2.0-liter V8 and 6-speed manual transmission. The 33 Stradale had a top speed of 160 mph and accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
