Alfa Romeo Berlina Da Corsa Design Concept

Seongjun Ko, a Transportation Design graduate from Hongik University in South Korea, has recently presented his Berlina Da Corsa design exercise. The concept was destined for a future Alfa Romeo sports sedan viable on both the track and public roads.

As Berlina Da Corsa translates to Racing Sedan in Italian, the vehicle’s design is much similar to classic Alfa Romeo models such as the GT 1300 Junior and the 1750 GTV from the '60s and '70s.

Alfa Romeo Berlina Da Corsa Concept has an unique roof system that employs a 'stretchable metal' housing on the flexible wires that changes shape through the use of an electric current. This is probably the strongest feature of Seongjun’s project.

The system applied on the Alfa Romeo concept study, which appears to be similar in design to the one used on the BMW GINA roadster, allows the rear section of the roof to be lowered for on track use or raised to enhance rear passenger space, as reported by

There are also several weak points in the Berlina da Corsa concept. From one point of view, the styling of the front and rear parts of the car looks like they belong to two totally different vehicles.

The vehicle is supposed to provide comfortable space for both the front and rear passengers. But as one can see in the pictures below, the car's rear fascia leaves the impression that the passengers won’t have much space to move a muscle.

Another aspect that raises a huge question mark on our foreheads (and on yours also), is the total absence of rear windows. In a world dominated by people who are trying to increase traffic safety, this might be one of the features to pin down the project.
