The Biggest Boots

Alfa Romeo’s new supercar, the 33 Stradale, 2024.

The new car will be hand-built in an edition of 33 cars and powered by a 620hp twin turbo 3.0 litre V6 or a 750hp BEV tri-motor drivetrain.

This limited-edition supercar has an anticipated price tag of £2.6 million.

However, it is a modern take on one of the world’s first Supercars, the 1967
Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, a mid-engined sports car.

The car was launched at the Monza Sports Car Show in September 1967, and only 18 examples built between 1967 and 1969.

It was the fastest production (Stradale means road-going) available car for the standing kilometre, 24 seconds when introduced in 1967.

This supercar had a top speed of 160mph and 5.5 seconds to 60mph.

The only cars close to the Alfa were the Maserati Ghibli, Lamborghini Miura and Ferrari Daytona, all with double the number of cylinders.

For the new Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale to have the same impact on the market as the old 33 Stradale had, let’s say it has some pretty big boots to fill.
