Alfa Romeo Disrobes Its American-Aimed Gloria Concept

Coming off the unveiling of the all-new 4C, headed for Geneva (and the U.S.), Alfa Romeo has unveiled its latest 'Gloria' concept; a creative design for a futuristic saloon car, developed by students at the Instituto Europeo di Design (IED). While the concept is expected to appear in the flesh high in the Swiss Alps (Geneva), the concept was developed mostly in the classroom, by students at the IED and the Alfa Romeo Style Center, in order to appeal to a consumer-base in countries like China and the United States. Alfa Romeo states that, "In effect, the saloon remains a symbol of elegance and prestige for these (Asia/N. America) markets, associated with the idea of a comfortable space both at the front and the rear, expressed by the length of the model." If put into production and sent stateside, this Alfa would rival the likes of the Germans and Americans in terms of the BMW 5-Series, the Audi A5, or even the Cadilllac CTS. More details on if, when, or where the concept will be put into production will be detailed at the Geneva Motor Show. PHOTOS: See more of the Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept
