Third Alfa 4C Spider Report Hints Geneva Debut Is Very Likely

The Geneva Motor Show is probably the most expensive venue in the European calendar. Even working up a sweat in order to bring you the latest stories means you have to pay an arm and a leg for some bottled water. But the cool thing about Geneva is that lots of expensive cars and people with fine taste come.

Geneva is also a stone's throw away from Italy, which means it's a good place to show Fiat, Alfas and maybe a few Chryslers. According to a tip from, one of the cars coming to Switzerland is a Spider 4C, probably a concept.

Taking the roof off the 4C will add character and prestige to an otherwise controversial motor. Reviews have been suggesting this sportscar is not as fun to drive or direct as the sub-ton weight and no-assisted steering system would lead you to believe.

According to the same story, Alfa has finally designed a new headlight unit for the 4C as well. The current fixture is a cluster of LED held in place with carbon fiber, which not only makes the car look like a wannabe kit model, but has resulted in people calling it "bug eyed".

This is not the second but the third time we've heard of the  4C Spider and these updates for the car, as reports surfaced in December and October 2013. Fingers crossed, they appear to point to a Geneva debut.

A million miles of headroom, an Italian engine in the background and the promise of better headlights – that's more than enough to make us fall in love with the 4C again.
