We've seen our fair share of retro-inspired revivals of iconic nameplates, but the latest one from Alfa Romeo is undoubtedly the most beautiful by far. Meet the 33 Stradale, a revival of the iconic sports car from the 1960s, and the first supercar from the Italian brand since the last 8C rolled off the line in 2010.





This modern-day 33 Stradale is capped at 33 units, which makes it almost as exclusive as the original model, which was limited to just 18 units. It's also worth noting that all examples are already sold out, as order books closed just weeks after a private reveal to prospective buyers, which took place at the 2022 Italian Grand Prix at Monza. And like any other limited-production supercar, no two 33 Stradales will be alike. Alfa calls it a "unique and unrepeatable work of art," which is exclusively curated by a new commissions team called "Bottega," which literally means that no two will be the same. Alfa Romeo tells us buyers will be able to customize everything from the eight-digit VIN to the air intakes.





The flagship Alfa features a carbon fiber monocoque and carbon fiber window frames, along with an H-frame consisting of aluminum. Meanwhile, the roof combines the two aforementioned materials, while Alfa says the rear glass is actually made of polycarbonate.


At the center of the 33 Stradale's lightweight build is a 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6, which sends over 620 hp to the rear wheels through an eight-speed DCT transmission. This powertrain is said to be an evolution of the 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 found under the hoods of the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio, and is not related to the similar Nettuno V6 from Maserati. That being said, Alfa Romeo didn't provide any information on torque, though the V6 in the brand's Quadrifoglio models produces 443 lb-ft.


Interestingly, buyers can also opt for a fully electric powertrain in their 33 Stradale, which generates over 750 hp. This matches the power rating found in the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, which uses a tri-motor setup that also generates 996 lb-ft of torque. The 33 Stradale is also capable of traveling up to 280 miles on a single charge on WLTP cycle, which matches the GranTurismo Folgore as well. While Alfa didn't directly mention whether the 33 Stradale borrows its electric powertrain from Maserati, the striking similarities make it highly likely.


All 33 Stradale models, whether gas or electric, will be capable of reaching 62 mph from a standstill in under 3 seconds. Each flagship Alfa also gets Brembo carbon-ceramic brake discs and brake-by-wire technology, along with a double-arm suspension setup with active dampers and a front-axle lift mechanism.






Opening the butterfly doors will reveal the 33 Stradale's masterful cabin, which is available in two themes the brand calls Tributo and Alfa Corse. The first one is meant to mirror the interior of the original 33 Stradale, while the Alfa Corse takes on a sportier atmosphere. But regardless of the cabin's theme, Alfa Romeo has set a major focus on the simple art of driving. As a result, the steering wheel lacks controls completely, and the supercar eschews a touchscreen altogether. Instead, there's a small digital display behind the steering wheel, while various controls are laid out throughout the cockpit-like cabin. In terms of materials, the cabin of the 33 Stradale incorporates leather, aluminum, carbon fiber, and Alcantara.



Alfa Romeo hasn't said when the 33 Stradale will begin delivering to customers, nor is it willing to reveal the supercar's pricing to the media. However, Motor1 reports that this won't be the last from Alfa in terms of bespoke supercars, as the company is planning more of them for the future.
