Alfa Romeo has already announced plans to unveil a replacement for the 159 sedan, but it we'll have to wait a few more years until we see the final product. Until then, MPcardesign, an Italian studio, has presented a design study of a sporty-looking saloon with a five-door fastback body style and seating for four created with a series production in mind. It will be followed by a complete virtual model line-up within the year.
Dubbed the Alfa Romeo Vittorio Jano, the concept's name was inspired by the famous Italian racing car designer of Hungarian descent that worked at Alfa Romeo from the 1920s through the 1930s.
The prototype presented by Marco Procaccini from MPcardesign is a four-seater, five-door sedan which measures 4,650mm in length, 1,830mm in width and 1,400mm in height.
Compared to the brand's latest models, which are derived from the 8C Competizione, the Jano presents an original evolution of the Alfa styling cues. It is modeled more after the Alfa Romeo 156 and 159 sedans. The front-end modeled around the V-shaped badge and the convex surfaces, which do not have sharp edges, can prove that.
The Vittorio Jano was created taking into consideration the actual feasibility, and was designed for a large series production.
It will be followed by other virtual models from the same designer: from a compact sporty coupe to a sport wagon and a supercar concept.
