Dashboard

As on any car-but perhaps even more so on an Alfa Romeo – the dashboard is undoubtedly one of the elements that really rings the changes. The dashboard mirrors the development of the car, evolving with it over the course of the years.

Developments

In 1910 it was sufficient to have a few instruments screwed onto a simple plank of wood to create a board. As models came and went, however, the dashboard became more complicated. The number of instruments grew and the wood was replaced by a panel, first flat and then with a more multi-shape.
After World War II, it became typical to using synthetic materials such as Bakelite and Perspex for the knobs and panels: this is noticeable, for example in the Villa d’Este and in the Giulia T.I.
In this way, we gradually came to see the classic round instrument layout that is still typical of all dashboards on Alfa Romeo cars, with the rev counter and speedometer in front of the driver.
In the case of racing cars or out-and-out sports cars - such as the TZ2 and the 33 Stradale - the speedometer was moved to one side, in front of the passenger.
These main instruments are joined by secondary instruments (fuel, oil and water) of lesser diameter and located in the centre of the dashboard: examples can be seen on the Duetto of 1966, the Alfa 156 and also the 8C Competizione.

Contemporary

Recent developments led to the advent of a dashboard that is more driver-oriented. The sensation for the driver is that of being in perfect control of the vehicle, of a safe, wrap-around passenger compartment with everything within easy reach. The sensation of control by the driver is backed by that of safety and comfort for passengers.
Developments present on the dashboards of the most recent additions to the Alfa range: a forceful dashboard with an intuitive control panel and graphics developed specially for the driver of the Alfa Romeo Mito; a horizontal dashboard for the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta harking back to the taut and light lines of the historical Giulietta in the 1950s and the addition of rocker controls in the centre.
