Twetta what?

Another sexy Geneva concept car was unveiled yesterday, this time from Alfa Romeo. Dubbed the “2uettottanta” (two-etto-tanta, say it with me), the name is an homage to the storied Alfa Romeo Duetto, one of the all time classic roadsters. More pics after the jump.

Tututattana? I don't care, it looks good from any angle.

No word on power from the turbocharged 1.75 liter motor, but the layout appears to be front engine, rear drive. Dimensionally, it’s a little bit bigger than the pictures make it look. Compared to a current generation Mazda Miata, the 2uettottanta is about 8 inches longer and 3 inches wider, with a slightly longer wheelbase.

Twittytinto? It just looks Italian, and that's a good thing.

With lines like that, you could call it the Snuffleuphagus and I'd still buy it.

Now that we’re likely to see Alfa in the US again, I say build it but keep it simple. We really don’t need the weight or complexity of a power retractable hard top; a simple cloth top will do just fine, thanks. Build a base model with a six speed manual and cloth interior and price it below $25k. Make a premium model with a leather interior and more farkles (heated seats, Bluetooth,etc.) and price it just below $30k. I suspect there are enough of us gear heads with a soft spot for Alfa Romeos that you’d sell them by the boatload.

    I’d consider trading my Spider in on that one.
