Twenty four hours after our story on the Mercedes-Benz F 800 and its resemblance to the BMW CS Concept, we return with another….dilemma. The Italian automaker Alfa Romeo will unveil their latest concept, dubbed Bertone, at the Geneva Motor Show.

Shortly after the first photos hit the web, a new heated discussion has begun. Some automotive fans are bringing up some similarities between the Bertone Concept and BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show last September.

We will refrain from jumping to a conclusion since once again, we don’t have any information on how far back the Bertone project goes and this could be a simple coincidence.

But….we would still like to point out some of the similarities we have seen. First, we have the side design, very sleek, futuristic and with the same coupeish-look. Second, the glass doors are very follow the same design rules as seen in the BMW VED. Third, the rear-end. While not an identical replica, the design idea is similar: layering that channel the flow of air.

We’ll stop here with the speculations, but feel free to share your opinion on the photos we put together below.
