Beautiful Pininfarina-Alfa Romeo concept car (1969)

"QUANTUM SHOT" #90(rev)
Link - by Avi Abrams

This could be the most shapely car ever built

This could be a classic case of split identity: two prototype cars had the same gorgeous body, both designed by the great Italian design firm Pininfarina in 1968-1969. The first was
Pininfarina Ferrari 250 Prototipo P5, shown in Geneva in 1968; the second - Pininfarina Alfa Romeo 33 Coupe Prototipo Speciale, made for the Paris show in 1969.

Treat your eyes to the slim and sensual forms the likes of which have not graced the streets since... well, 1969. Certainly we can not complain if Pininfarina's virtuoso of design used it on more than one prototype car!

If you have pictures of a Ferrari prototype (presented a year earlier, in 1968) - send them in. It will be fun to compare the twins.
