Alfa Romeo Scighera

The Alfa Romeo Scighera is a fully working futuristically-styled concept car designed and constructed by Italdesign of Turin, Italy in 1997. The Scighera is derived from the 164, and has an all aluminium body and frame structure is made of aluminium-carbon fibre composite, and powered by an Alfa Romeo TwinTurbo 3-liter V6 engine, and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds. Horsepower was rated at 400 at 7,500 rpm, the Scighera had a top speed of 186 mph (299 km/h) and its four-wheel drive gave it crisp handling. The four wheel drive system was derived from Alfa Romeo 155. Italdesign was considering even a small scale production but that never happened.

The car is featured in the 1998 racing video game Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit, but only in the PC version. The PSX version uses the Nazca C2 instead.
