1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo news, pictures, specifications, and information
At the end of the 1960's Bertone focussed his creative energies on prototypes. The Turin designer's creativity and daring reached its peak in 1968 wîth the Carabo, which was presented at the Paris Motor Show in October. Built on the Alfa Romeo 33 chassis wîth a centrally-mounted engine, it became a style classic, known for its creativity and original features, some of which contribute to its legendary standing. Design features like its tight lines, tapering front blending in seamlessly wîth the windscreen, and the air inlets and outlets. And the original door mechanism, wîth doors opening upwards and forwards (a concept which reappears on the production Countach), and even the novel colour: iridescent green like a beetle (hence the name Carabo, in Italian, a type of beetle). The result hit the headlines all round the world, and not just in the trade press, and the positive feedback was unanimous. The Carabo was Bertone's bold but aesthetically and functionally valid vision of the sporty car of the future. And the use of new materials and novel construction techniques means that this concept car was something more than just an exercise in styling.
