The Alfa Romeo Diva is a concept car of the Italian automobile manufacturer Alfa Romeo. The car was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2006.[2] The car was developed through a collaboration between Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, Fiat Group's research center Elasis and the Espera design school led by Franco Sbarro.[3] The design of the car goes back to the icon Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, making use of the butterfly doors. Although the car has the characteristic Alfa-nose, the nose is much like on a Formula 1 car. The car is built on a heavily modified chassis from an Alfa Romeo 159 and a transverse mounted 3.2 liter 290 bhp (216 kW; 294 PS) Busso V6. The car has top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in five seconds.[4]
