Prototype cars are so cool! Too bad the manufacturers ends up choosing something safe and boring.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

It pleases me much that this designer crap did not apply to modern cars. Sure some are nice but most of them is just futuristic stupidy.

But my point is that had this radical styling been adopted more fully and developed from this era, then the cars that we have today would be something to see.

Also, Giotto Bizzarrini, was an engineer for Alfa Romeo and he created the Bizzarrini brand... It is therefore pretty obvious that there could be Alfa crossovers, probably used as platforms for his cars. Do your research before saying "DUH", you ignoramus.
