The Alfa Romeo Vola is a concept car designed by Leonardo Fioravanti.[1] One of its most notable features is a rotating glass roof. The deck lid hinges are concentric with the top, so the entire trunk volume is available and accessible, top up or down. The same idea was later used in the Ferrari Superamerica from 2005, also designed by Fioravanti. Originally livered in black with red interior, the Vola was shown at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show with a red paint and brown upholstery.[2] In 2008 the rear buttresses were remodelled similar to the Superamerica.
