Surprisingly Alfa Romeo doesn't have a supercar. Some would argue that the 8C already serves that function, but it's more of a grand tourer to me. So that begs the questions, does Alfa Romeo need a supercar in its lineup? Artist Paul Breshke thinks so and has worked on this art project of his for the past 8 months just to answer to himself what an Alfa supercar owuld look like. I personaly think it looks stupendous! The curves and hips are all in the right place, the aggressiveness is there, and the sexy is surely not lacking. This thing is outstanding.
