Should Alfa build this ‘6C’ supercar?

Design student renders shapely supercar concept to out-muscle the new Corvette…

Alfa Romeo 6C

Clearly, we're not the only ones tingling with the prospect of driving the new metal headed your way this year. Stuff like the new Chevrolet Corvette and Alfa Romeo 4C.

But what if you popped the essence of both these cars into the Giant Top Gear V8 Food Blender and set the speed to poweeerrr? Probably, something like the blood red supercar you can see above. It's called the Alfa Romeo 6C, and is in no way affiliated with, erm, Alfa Romeo.

It is in fact, a design study by a chap called Alex Imnadze, a student of the highly regarded IED Torino (who were 2005 winners of the Ferrari World Design Contest and runners up in 2011), and proud fan of Alfa and Pininfarina's rich design heritage.

He says he cooked up this rendering - which is no way real at all, unless you're in The Matrix - as a competitor for the new Chevrolet Corvette; "an Italian muscle car, if it's possible to say", he tells us.

And it certainly looks striking. Front-engined (no word, probably the 450bhp 4.7-litre V8), rear-wheel-drive and with hints of the Alfa Romeo Montreal at the front, together with snippets of the rather delectable Alfa 2uettottanta concept, the gorgeous 8C and of course, the original Alfa Romeo 6C. Shame there's no whisper of the bite-the-back-of-your-hand beautiful Alfa 33 Stradale, but we've always got the upcoming 4C for that.

Have a click through the pictures and let us know: reckon Alfa should build something like this 6C?
