Geneva 2010: Pininfarina 2uettottanta

- Two-seat concept Spider called 2uettottanta - Celebrates 100 years of Alfa Romeo and 80 years of Pininfarina - Power comes from 1,750cc turbocharged four-cylinder engine

Pininfarina's and Alfa Romeo's history is littered with beautiful collaborations and the 2uettottanta could hint at the next one. The Italian styling house has created this '2uettottanta' concept to show the world - and the decision makers at Alfa Romeo - how the next Spider could look.

What's all the fuss about?

Just try getting past the Pininfarina stand without stopping and staring. The 2uettottanta is absolutely gorgeous, Pininfarina's designers taking classical Alfa design cues and incorporating them into this beautifully proportioned two-seat sports car. If a future production car can get anywhere near to looking like this then expect disorderly queues to form outside Alfa's dealers with people holding deposit cheques.

Any new technology?

The 2uettottanta is meant to be a simple, compact two seater and that's reflected in its lack of superfluous technology. A 1,750cc turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers it, while Alfa's 'DNA' system, which alters steering, throttle, brake and transmission response at the push of a button, also features. Pininfarina has utilised LED lighting technology to better its dramatic lines front and rear, but otherwise the 2uettottanta is as pure a sports car as it looks.

Estimated release date: For now it's still a concept.

Estimated cost: Should it be built as Alfa's Spider it could conceivably cost as little as £28,000.
