Alfa Romeo Gloria represents the Italian spirit and sporty soul of the company. Every Alfa Romeo has to look similar to the past but look towards the future. Stylistically, it has a sleek design with a prominent grille, a long bonnet and thin LED lights. The body has many curves, the roof is painted in silver to make the contrast stand out while everything stands on OZ Racing rims measuring 20 inches. Overall, the dimensions are 4.7 meters long, 1.92 meters wide and 1.32 meters high, with a wheelbase of about 2.9 meters.
It still remains unclear what the engine of Alfa Romeo Gloria will be, but officials claim that it was designed so it could fit a “state-of-the-art V6” or a twin-turbo V8.
Finally, the company will also launch an app for the Apple iPad, where users can choose between five different car colors and rims, which are already designed by the students along with OZ Racing.
