Coachbuilder ErreErre Fuoriserie clearly wants to be the Italian Mitsuoka, with the Turin-based firm debuting a modern-day Alfa Romeo Giulia that’s been redesigned to look like 1962-1978 original.
The “retromod” seen here made its debut at Auto e Moto d’Epoca, a vintage car and motorbike show in Bologna that ran over the weekend.
For its modern reinterpretation of the original 1962 model, ErreErre Fuoriserie has completely reclothed the modern car. Every exterior panel has been redesigned with the only clear visual links to today’s Giulia being the door window shapes.
The smooth, rounded surfaces of the modern Giulia are dispensed with, and the boxy lines of the original overlaid on top of the modern structure.
Arguably the ErreErre’s redesign is most successful at the front, where the company has faithfully reinterpreted the original Giulia’s four round headlights and small shield grille.
Around the side the flat surfaces are broken up by the blistered front arches, new lift-up door handles, and two character lines running the length of the car, the lower of which squares off the rear wheel arches.
The 20-inch alloys are styled to resemble the original Giulia’s wheels.
ErreErre was unable to recreate the original car’s wraparound rear windscreen, so the retromod has restyled C-pillars which are designed to look thinner than they actually are.
The car terminates at a bluff rectangular boot with small round tail lights set in a large grey rectangular section.
On the inside, ErreErre has simply re-trimmed the modern Giulia’s cabin with a mix of brown leather and off-white velour.
Under the skin, the car by ErreErre is based on the Giulia Quadrifoglio, and uses a retuned version of Alfa’s Ferrari-built 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6.
In this car the V6 been tweaked to develop 419kW, and is paired with a Capristo exhaust with two centrally mounted tailpipes.
Other key upgrades include the fitment of a six-speed manual transmission, and adjustable Bilstein B16 suspension.
We’re not entirely sure why ErreErre decided to paint their show car baby blue, as the racing green colour used in the renderings posted by Motor1 Italia do a better job of hiding the car’s shortcomings.
According to the website, ErreErre’s “retromod” Giulia will cost €400,000 ($668,000) before sales tax. The price includes the cost of the unmodified Giulia Quadrifoglio. Build time is approximately six months.
ErreErre plans to limit production of these retro-styled Giulia Quadrifoglios to just 33 units.
