In 1970, the Alfa Romeo Montreal was presented to the world at the Geneva Motor Show. In fact, it appeared in 1967 as an unnamed concept car at an event in Montreal. Since it was not named, people called it Montreal and when Alfa Romeo decided to build it, you get the idea.
It was 50 years ago. The suave 2 + 2 coupe would ultimately benefit from seven years of production, but to celebrate the debut of the car, Pedro Ruperto Mallosto developed a modern interpretation of the classic design and there is no other way to say it. – it’s a spectator. It is useful that the original Montreal is also a very attractive design, but this restart is simply sensational.
The design was not just a flight of fantasy. According to the post of Behance.net, this modern Montreal was created for an Instagram design challenge presented by Alfa Romeo. It would have won second place among all the entries, and from our point of view, it is a well-deserved place because this interpretation does an excellent job by combining classic elements with a modern touch.
The most identifiable aspects of Montreal are undoubtedly the horizontal vents of the C-pillar and the headlight grilles of the long hood of the car. Integrating the vents on an updated version shouldn’t be a big deal, but incorporating the grilles with a modern headlight design isn’t plug-and-play. To this end, we think this creation does a fantastic job of mixing the old with the new. And what about the four-leaf clover integrated in the high beams? It’s a very smart way to call it a Quadrifoglio.
Since it was created for an Alfa Romeo design competition, does this mean that it is planned to restart Montreal? Given the current state of the world, let alone the struggles that Alfa Romeo faces, it is very unlikely to happen. As such, we end up with creations like this and our imaginations to bring them to life.
