Alfa Romeo has unveiled its new 33 Stradale, a limited-edition supercar that pays homage to the iconic 33 Stradale of the 1960s.

The 33 Stradale is available as a fully electric vehicle (EV) or with an internal combustion engine (ICE). The latter is a 3,0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine with over 462 kW and an eight-speed DCT gearbox, rear-wheel drive and electronic limited-slip differential. The battery-electric version delivers over 537 kW, with an estimated range of 450 km (WLTP).

Alfa Romeo claims a top speed of 333 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in under three seconds, with braking from 100 km/h to 0 in under 33 m. The manufacturer did not provide any comparison between the performance of the EV and the ICE version.

The 33 Stradale is built on a carbon fibre monocoque chassis and features a lightweight aluminium body. It has a sleek, aerodynamic design with a long, low hood and a sloping rear end.

Only 33 examples of the 2023 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale will be built, each priced at over €1 million (R20 million). The first deliveries are expected to begin in early 2024.

In a statement, Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato said, “The 33 Stradale is a true supercar, combining stunning design with incredible performance. It is a car that will excite and inspire drivers around the world.”

The 33 Stradale is the latest in a line of high-performance cars from Alfa Romeo. The company has a long history of building iconic sports cars, such as the Giulia TZ2 and the 8C Competizione. The original 33 Stradale was launched in 1967.

The new 33 Stradale is a significant car for Alfa Romeo, as it marks the company’s return to the supercar market. It is sure to be a hit with collectors and enthusiasts alike.
