Alfa Romeo Carabo

Alfa Romeo Carabo model made by Solido with Ref.: 1816

The concept car was shown in October 1968, at Porte de Versailles in Paris, to a stunned crowd. The Alfa Romeo Carabo was a milestone in Supercar design, "Carabo," meaning beetle.
Designed by Marcello Gandinni for Bertone. The Lamborghini Miura, also previously designed by Gandini, had suffered from front-end lift at high speeds, so the Carabo was an exercise in focusing on an aerodynamic solution. The car also featured upward hinging doors, which later inspired the Lamborghini Countach.
It was built on the Chassis of the mid-engined V8 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 with a V8cyl DOHC 1995cc 230hp at 8800rpm at 7000rpm Spika Fuel Injection 250km/h 0 to 100=6.4sec 6speed gearbox 990kg.
