The Alfa Romeo Nuvola concept car was released at the Paris International Auto Show in 1996. It is a 2-door coupe featuring a 2.5 litre (2492 cc), twin-turbo 60-degree V6 coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission which puts out 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) at 6000 rpm and 285 lb·ft (386 N·m) at 3000 rpm. The car has a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h) and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (97 km/h) in six seconds. The Nuvola was named after the legendary Italian race driver Tazio Nuvolari. The Nuvola has a front-mounted engine and four wheel drive.
The car is based on a separate tubular aluminium frame with the body made of polyester, designed to handle virtually any body style, from coupe to station wagon.
The prototype is currently on display at the Alfa Romeo History Museum in Arese, Italy.
