The Alfa Romeo 33.2 is a Pininfarina designed concept car, first presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1969. Leonardo Fioravanti designed this 2-door coupe. The design was influenced by the Ferrari P5 concept shown a year earlier at Geneva.[1]

The car was powered by a mid-mounted 2 litre V8 engine producing 245 PS (180 kW; 242 hp) at 8800 rpm, and is based on the road going 33 Stradale. Top speed of the car is around 250 km/h (160 mph).

There were two more 33 based concepts: Giugiaro's Iguana and Bertone's Carabo. The 33.2 featured hydraulically working butterfly doors and pop-up headlights.[2]
