True Italian Arachnid crawling to Geneva. Here are the bits from Autoexpress :
The Italian job is heading to Geneva. Celebrating its collective 180th birthday, Alfa Romeo and Pininfarina turn 100 and 80 respectively this year. And what better way to celebrate both manufacturers anniversaries than a collaboration between the pair.
Based around an Alfa, the Pininfarina Concept will draw inspiration from spiders of the past and this first official sketch gives us a clear look at what the show car will look like. Featuring alloy wheels borrowed from the stunning 8C Competzione, the concept will be a true 2-seater, steeped deep in Italian heritage and tradition.
The concept looks like it won’t be short on style either, with smooth flowing lines and plenty of curves in all the right places. Full details on the cars performance will be revealed when the concept makes its world debut on March 2 at the Geneva Motor Show.
