Pininfarina to reveal Alfa concept at Geneva

Pininfarina will reveal an Alfa Romeo based concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

The car will be shown to the public on March 2nd at the Pininfarina stand, as it will celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Italian styling house.

The picture above is the first official image of the concept which has been released. As we can see, it will present a 2-seater spider theme. It should be a modern interpretation of the old, Pininfarina-styled Alfa Romeos. It will also be a present to Alfa as the Italian firm are celebrating their iconic 100th anniversary this year. To celebrate this, Bertone will also bring a special Alfa to Geneva, one based on the 8c Competizione.

Both the Bertone and Pininfarina cars will solely be a tribute to Alfa Romeo and they will only remain as concepts, with no plans for going into mass-production.
