Alfa Romeo has revealed the one-off livery it will sport for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
The Italian Grand Prix marks the third straight race that Alfa Romeo has entered with a unique design for their car, and they are the newest team to officially announce an exclusive livery for the event.
Last weekend in the Netherlands, they ran a livery based on the F1 “Art Car” that they designed earlier in the year. In Belgium, they featured neon green accents on the C43’s customary black and red livery.
Alfa Romeo will no longer serve as Sauber’s title sponsor after 2023, yet the manufacturer has maintained its history of donning an updated color scheme with an Italian accent.
The 33 Stradale, the newest fuoriserie automobile from the Alfa car brand, receives recognition in the latest livery that adorns the C43. It features the Italian tricolor and gold font.
The C43’s black sides and wings have been retained for this weekend, but less red paint has been applied to the front and back of the chassis so that white and green can be fitted in right next to it to make the Italian flag.
The 33 Stradale is a tribute in and of itself, paying homage to an Alfa Romeo model of the same name that gained legendary fame as a stunning SportsCar racer in the late 1960s.
The contemporary transformation will be a small number of custom designs for the most affluent customers, with the choice of a 620 horsepower V6 or a 750 horsepower+ tri-motor EV for a staggering price of €1.7 million plus tax.
The 33 Stradale sports car, which will have a limited production run and be inspired by a 1967 model of the same name, will be unveiled during the grand prix weekend by the Italian-owned Alfa Romeo brand, despite the fact that the team is based in Switzerland.
The C43 will also sport gold wheel covers and lettering in respect to the 33 Stradale. The livery was unveiled to the public today at the official Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, with drivers Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu in attendance.
“As we approach our home race in Monza, it’s a pleasure to unveil this incredible livery,” said team representative Alessando Alunni Bravi. “A true tribute not only to the 33 Stradale, but to Alfa Romeo as a whole and to the country it hails from, Italy.
“This livery is probably one of the most beautiful we’ve ever had on a car, and to be able to showcase it in front of our home crowd – including hundreds of our team members from Hinwil on the grandstands – is an honour for all of us.
“Personally, I am excited by the references to the 33 Stradale: the original model from 1967 was an iconic car that influenced style and design for a generation and beyond.
“And its latest incarnation embodies all this heritage while also setting the path to the future of Alfa Romeo.”
Alfa Romeo CEO Jean Philippe Imparato added: “With the new 33 Stradale, we wanted to create something that lived up to our past, to serve the Alfa Romeo brand and to make the Alfisti fandom proud.
“Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake’s tribute livery embodies the spirit, the passion and the vision we have put in the 33 Stradale: it is pure, classic sportiness, and it combines looks with performance.
“I cannot wait to see it on track this weekend.”
Ferrari, another Italian team, will be racing in Monza in a special livery to commemorate their victory at the 2023 Le Mans 24 Hours earlier this year.
