Alfa Superflow 1 (or great ideas in fenders)

The Alfa Superflow was a show car produced for the 1956 Turin Auto show. The theme of the car besides the fins, was plexiglass, the top was a transparent bubble, as were the front fenders, which were part of a pair of bubbles that covered the headlight, the top and the wheels and continued back to the door edge.

Dramatic for sure, and the car was a hit with showgoers. However, a few weeks afterwards, the car became Superflow 1 as the body was stripped down to make another more reserved version, Superflow 2 (below). The chassis went on to form the basis of two more showcars later on.
