Calendar ALPRA DESIGN 2018


The theme of the year 2018 - Mysterious night ride

The 24th calendar ALPRA DESIGN draws inspiration in joy of driving and listening music. Especially at night, when there are only contours from the surroundings and there is little traffic, concentration can be transferred into driving and enjoying the sounds of the engine and / or music. The car moves through the bluish blackness only slightly illuminated, enough to be recognized, yet still mysterious. Two songs of one of the best singers, Roy Orbison, could describe this calendar: "I drove all night" and "She's a mystery to me".

12 unique neutral car designs on calendar ALPRA DESIGN reach from small cars, through SUVs, limousines, coupes and convertibles, to super sports cars.
