Students Design the Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept Sedan
|   Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Alfa Romeo has joined hands with design students to design the Gloria concept car and this could be the basic designing principle on which the Gloria is actually designed. The project was undertaken in association with Master in Transportation Students and they have done a great job in independently designing their version of the Alfa Romeo sedan. Fiat/ Chrysler Head Designer Lorenzo Ramaciotti seemed to be quite impressed with what he saw.

Although this is just a sketch of the Gloria Concept, Alfa Romeo decided to showcase the sketch at the European Design Institute at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Gloria Concept sedan features styling elements borrowed from both old and new Alfa Romeo models. The Gloria focuses mainly on styling, comfort and customer satisfaction and the designed vehicle seems to be doing all with elegance.

The vehicle could be powered by a twin turbo V6 or V8 engine and Lorenzo says that during the designing process, the student's were allowed to do what they wished for as independent expression is the best way to get the best ideas out of fresh minds. The result obtained was quite impressive and phenomenal in its own rights. In fact, the creative and professional excellence of the design work has impressed many of the top sources related to the industry.

Alfa Romeo is planning on launching the Giulia sedan in 2014 to replace the current model of the 159. The executive sedan segment of Alfa Romeo has not seen any major action since a long time and the company plans on breaking the lull with the Giulia. Alfa Romeo plans on including different versions of the Giulia like a sedan, hatch back and a possible coupe.

However, plans are on and nothing has been officially confirmed. Alfa Romeo plans on launching similar models of the Giulia as that of the 159 to corroborate the models'. Fiat / Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne hopes to increase global sales by 200,000 from 100,000 recorded last year to 300,000 in 2013.

This may seem to be a lofty target at the moment but with vehicles such as the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes Benz C Class in its segment the sales target might be attained. Competition is high and that is the fun of selling premium segment vehicles. Alfa Romeo has a reputation for meeting their sales targets every year and this year will be the actual test for the company as new models are in line. The Giulia will feature the underpinnings of the Dodge Dart and the Giulietta hatch, which is also expected to be the top most model in the lineup.

However, the bosses have not confirmed whether or not the Gloria concept will be actually brought into production but the designing work has been a breathtaking work and it is expected that this could be used in the future to develop cars based on the Giulia platform. The students designing this vehicle work closely with the Alfa Romeo design team and are expected to design more cars in future.
