Alfa Romeo 4C Looks Good in Blue
The main difference between this production model headed to Geneva and the concept from the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show is the color. Instead of the matte finish, this has a simple red paint jobs, so we thought we'd do a little something to spice up Alfa Romeo's life.
Cosmetically, the 4C is pure Alfa Romeo, not really modern or retro in any way. Its timeless sportscar lines are only disturbed by over-simplified headlights, which look like the result of financial constraints.
Despite its flaws, the 4C is a new chapter for the Italian company, thus cause for optimism in the automotive world.
We think the color blue best shows the way in which the body of the 4C is designed. The front has any panel lines. At under 4 meters in length, practicality was not on the agenda, so there's no luggage compartment in the front. But will this put people off from buying the first real Alfa Romeo in over a decade? Not likely.
