Alfa Romeo Boss Confirms Brand Will Launch New Combustion Sports Car In 2023


Alfa Romeo chief executive Jean-Philippe Imparato has revealed that the car manufacturer will introduce a new combustion-powered sports car in 2023.

While Alfa Romeo has already committed to going all-electric by 2027, Imparato revealed that it isn’t ready to bid farewell to combustion engines just yet. While details about the vehicle are limited, Auto Express believes that it will be mid-engined and use a carbon fiber chassis.

“Alfa is sportiness,” Imparato said when discussing the car. “You will see something sporty in the first half of 2023. I am on two scenarios: full EV or full ICE. I can tell you [this car] will be a very exciting one, very expensive, very selective. We will probably have some surprising, interesting proposals that will not always be full EV for the coming two years.”

Powertrain details have not been confirmed. However, it is possible that the sports car could feature an upgraded version of the 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 used by the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio.

In designing the car, Imparato confirmed that Alfa Romeo has looked to its past, leading to speculation that it could take inspiration from the iconic 33 Stradale.

“I am not the only one to love Alfa’s past,” Imparato said. “We have so many fantastic ideas based on our iconic history, so I can say yes, but I can say it’s like nothing else. In each of our proposals, you will always, always find a kind of signal of our DNA and our heritage, and you will find it clearly and quickly, so I am sure when you see something [the car] you will say this reminds me of whatever. You will hear more in November.”

Separately, Imparato said that the automaker is working on more high-performance, limited-run models, but insisted there will not be any new GTA special editions.
