The Alfa Romeo Visconti is a concept car made by Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The car was seen for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in 2004. The car is a four-door coupé and is almost 5 metres (200 in) long. Under the bonnet is a 3.2-litre V6 JTS biturbo engine, which produces 405 PS (298 kW; 399 hp) at 6000 rpm and 680 newton metres (500 ft·lbf) of torque at 2000 rpm.

The car is front-engined all-wheel-drive assisted with rear-wheel steering,[2] with a six-speed automatic gearbox and Brembo's composite ceramic brake discs all-round.

The name Visconti comes from old Milan family ancestry.[2]
