Concept Car of the Week: Bertone Delfino and Zagato Zeta 6 (1983)


Two remarkable coupés, the Bertone Delfino and the Zagato Zeta 6, presented an alternate future for Alfa Romeo GT cars

Attendees at the 53rd Geneva Motor Show in 1983 were treated to an interesting contrast in sports coupé concepts, one each from Bertone and Zagato. There was nothing unusual there – the two carrozzerria were displaying concepts almost every year and vying for attention with other design houses, usually at the Turin, Geneva, or Paris shows.

What was interesting was that the two coupés were proposed for the same manufacturer, Alfa Romeo, and presented two different possibilities for the future of the Alfa sports cars for the 1980s and beyond.
