1960 Alfa Romeo Super Flow IV by Pininfarina

The 1960 Alfa Romeo Super Flow IV by Pininfarina is a one-off concept car that was built on the chassis of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider. The car was created to showcase Pininfarina's design and engineering capabilities, representing a milestone in the history of Italian automotive design.


The Super Flow IV features a striking body design that is low, sleek, and aerodynamic. The car's lines flow smoothly from front to back, creating a sense of motion even when the car is standing still. The front of the car features a distinctive grille flanked by four round headlights, while a pair of sweeping fins dominate the rear.


Under the hood, the Super Flow IV is powered by a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 100 horsepower. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission, which gives the car excellent acceleration and top speed. The car's suspension and brakes are also upgraded, with impressive handling and stopping power.


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


The Super Flow IV was never put into production, and it remains a one-off concept car that toured the auto show circuit in the early 1960s.


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