Body and chassis

The car was designed by Alfa Romeo Centro Stile (Style Centre) and developed by Alfa Romeo. The carbon fiber tub is produced by TTA (Tecno Tessile Adler) in Airola, as a joint venture between Adler and Lavorazione Materiali Compositi (Lmc). The carbon fiber components that make up the chassis are cut using CNC technology. The body will not be made entirely of carbon fiber, with the front and rear frames being made of aluminium. This increases the weight to around 900 kilograms (2,000 lb).
