1959 Alfa Romeo Super Flow III by Pininfarina

The 1959 Alfa Romeo Super Flow III by Pininfarina is a stunning concept car showcasing the best Italian automotive design and engineering. The Super Flow III was the third and final car in the Super Flow series, which began with the Super Flow I in 1956.

The Super Flow III was based on the Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 platform, featuring a unique and innovative body design. The car's body was low and sleek, with a long hood and a distinctive front grille that was flanked by four round headlights. The car's lines flowed seamlessly from front to back, giving it a sense of movement even when it was standing still.

Under the hood, the Super Flow III was powered by a 2.5-liter, six-cylinder engine that produced 158 horsepower. The engine was mated to a five-speed manual transmission, which gave the car impressive acceleration and top speed. The car's suspension and brakes were also upgraded, giving it excellent handling and stopping power.

Inside, the Super Flow III was a masterpiece of Italian design and craftsmanship. The cabin was luxurious and spacious, with leather seats and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. The dashboard was dominated by a large, circular tachometer and speedometer, which were flanked by smaller gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, and fuel level.

Like its predecessors, the Super Flow III was never put into production. Instead, it remained a one-off concept car that toured the auto show circuit and showcased Pininfarina's design and engineering capabilities.

In total, there would be four Alfa Romeo Super Flow Prototypes:
