Carrozzeria Castagna GC 2003

Eight years ago Gioacchino Acampora and Uberto Pietra revived the name of the famous Carrozzeria Castagna by presenting an unusual Alfa Romeo 75-based prototype in Geneva after purchasing the right to the historical name.
After a quiet period Acampora bounced back at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show with new and reworked concepts.
The G.C. is a two-door, two-seater custom-body based on Alfa Romeo chassis with rear wheel drive. The car is a sporting two door coupé on a rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo chassis. It will be fitted with Alfa's 3.2-litre V6, offering 260bhp @ 6,600rpm, and Selespeed gearbox. The G.C. is 4168mm long, 1728mm wide, 1280mm high and with a wheelbase of 2513mm.
Following the Carrozzeria Castagna tradition, the lines are sharp and they underline the volume treatment. The prow frontal: a typical Castagna emblem of the 1930's. Among the line cuts of the body, the new LED main-beams allow the coachbuilder to offer new lines. It sits on 245/40 tyres at the front with 275/35 tyres at the rear.
Nowadays Castagna offer to the owner a direct relationship with his car. Through a wrist whatch, the car recognises the owner and opens its door. The leather trim colour is related to the exterior.
