Alfa Romeo Zeta 6

Octane magazine never fails to educate; I hadn't heard of the Alfa Romeo Zeta 6 before I saw this article. Based on the GTV6 platform, the Zeta 6 takes the compact coupé form and moulds it into something rather more offbeat, with its BMW-esque tail and pinched nose. Various unique styling ideas highlight that this was more concept than production proposal - the hinged flap ahead of the bonnet, the interior free of the complexity of control knobs and buttons - but you can't argue with the logic of a small, V6-powered Alfa with a dab of coachbuilt flair. If they'd had the resources to put this into production, it would have sold like hot cakes.
