The Alfa Romeo Scighera is a fully working, futuristically styled concept car designed and constructed by Italdesign of Turin, Italy in 1997. The Scighera is derived from the 164, and has an all aluminium body and frame structure is made of aluminium-carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer composite, and powered by an Alfa Romeo 3.0 L (180 cu in) twin turbo V6 engine. This car accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds. The engine produced 400 hp (300 kW; 410 PS) at 7,500 rpm.
The front-end of the Alfa Romeo Scighera GT was produced in a single piece incorporating the grille, wings and bonnet: made out of carbon fibre instead of aluminium, it could be completely removed and was hinged to the sides. The doors open in conventional manner but the windows are fixed.
The rear is also made out of carbon fibre and emphasised by a monoplane spoiler fitted centrally at the end of the tail.
