Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale revealed with dual powertrain

   Aug 31,2023

The long-awaited 33 Stradale supercar from Alfa Romeo will be the company's final all-pure-fuel supercar, the manufacturer has announced. It is a striking resurrection of a 1960s racing legend that has been in development since 2021 and offers the choice of V6 or electric power.


Powertrain of Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale

A 3.0 litre twin-turbocharged V6 with 620 horsepower or a mid-rear-mounted EV with 750 horsepower was the two powertrain options available to buyers. The weight of the latter, pure-combustion vehicle is about 1500kg. Ten V6-powered vehicles and two electric vehicles have confirmed orders.

The electric drivetrain is the company's first and is said to be paired with a battery that can provide a 450-kilometer range on the WLTP cycle, though more information is still pending confirmation. Like previous EVs like the BMW i4 and Mercedes-Benz EQS, the EV will have its own sound built into the cabin.

Similar to the new Granturismo Folgore from sister brand Maserati, it has a tri-motor four-wheel drive system. It is also offered with a gasoline V6 engine, same as that automobile.

The combustion engine in the Alfa is a modernized version of the 2.9-liter unit used in the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglios, however it has been bored out and given an additional 133 horsepower. There is no available manual gearbox; instead, it uses an eight-speed ZF automatic to drive the rear wheels.

The 33 Stradale offers a 0-100kph time of less than three seconds and a top speed of 333kph when it is powered by fuel. According to Daniel Guzzafame, vice president of product management of Alfa Romeo, the EV achieves a time of "under 2.5 seconds".

The options for driving modes are Strada (road) and Pista (track). With a slower throttle response, softer suspension, and - on the V6 car - exhaust valves that don't open until 5000 rpm, Alfa Romeo claimed it had the "ambitious" goal of making sure the car was as at home on the track as it was on the road. This would give the driver a more comfortable ride on the road. In contrast, track mode stiffens the front and rear double-wishbone suspension, sharpens the throttle response, and maintains a permanently open exhaust valve.


Exterior and interior of Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale

Alfa Romeo made an effort to mimic the dimensions of the original car as nearly as possible in the design of the 33 Stradale. It has the well-known "V"-shaped grille, known as the Scudetto Shield, on the front, and, according to the company, its overall design has been optimized for aerodynamics and "necessary beauty."

In order to make the car as aerodynamically efficient as possible, there is an air intake built into the headlamps and a rear spoiler that directs air into the side intakes. Guzzafame declared that the 33 Stradale's innovative 'V'-shaped grille, elliptical bonnet, and LED lines in the headlamps would be carried over to the company's upcoming vehicles.

Similar to the appearance, its cockpit is made of lightweight materials like aluminium and carbon fiber, and Alcantara is used extensively, furthering the impression that it is a supercar.

The 33 Stradale upholds Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato's promise that the company would keep its interiors "driver-centric" by having a minimal number of buttons on the centre console and a 3D head-up display, which is said to be an industry first and is intended to cause the least amount of driver distraction possible.

The steering wheel has no buttons at all; instead, certain physical controls are positioned above the driver's head on the ceiling. According to Alfa, this feature is intended to create the impression that the interior is an airplane cockpit.

Only 33 Stradale cars will be made. These special cars are only for a select group of people who really value the car's history and significance. The first car will be given to its owner on December 17, 2024, and everyone should have their cars by 2026.
