Alfa 4C presentation in Italy

Tomorrow the Alfa 4C will be presented in Milan for anyone who wants to see it live. I am not sure which dealer will be there but it will be in Via Tortona.

Enjoy and post some more pics and video if you go there

Well spotted.

It will be a rare sight. I wonder how much attention it will get. I bet it will be a popular Milan 'attraction'

It's in Milano because they are exhibiting it during the Salone del Mobile.

We all knew. But that is not the reason why today's presentation is in Milano.

There was also a recent presentation in Germany with a standard car with carbon headlights; so I guess it is safe to say that they will be an option over the plastic grey ones.

Think AR listened to feedback regarding the lights.. All said the carbon looks much better than the plastic ones.. And I will bet most will add that to their production car if its made an optional extra

4C LE

It almost looks like a metallic red as opposed to the Rosso of the LE

4C LE

After watching that video I'm wondering how the hell I'm going to get over speed bumps - and car in the video is not the LE. I hope the LE isn't even lower. I may even have to get someone to modify my driveway to reduce the curb height.

It is different.

I was in Essen today and I noticed the same. From my memory the Launch Edition was the non metallic Alfa Rosso. And I was expecting the launch edition there.

So I asked one of the lady's on the Alfa stand and she confirmed that the Launch Edition was Alfa Rosso (non metallic) and the one presented in Essen is the "normal" version in Rosso Metallic, it looks like the same metallic that can be ordered on the Mito and Guilietta, not the 8C red. Although given the artificial lighting there I'm not 100% sure.

The colour looks great by the way, I think it looks better with the modern lines of the 4C. I don't get way Alfa didn't gave this option to Launch Edition customers as well.

It also had the carbon head light surrounds, and they look a lot better in the flesh than on pictures.

the reason I know that this is a proper petrol head forum of fume breathers is that NOT ONE PERSON commented on the women dancing. Bravo!

It looks bloody good in this colour.. It does seem darker than the Rosso Alfa colour... So think onemanshow is right.. Seems more of a metallic colour

I have been the biggest critic of the headlights since launch. 2 things:

1. That colour is the dogs ******
2. The headlights in carbon look fantastic

Thank you alfa for putting the carbon surrounds on non LE cars. I may just be in the market to buy one again

Just confirmed with Alfa.. The carbon headlight surrounds will be available as optional extra on the production cars.. Love the silver 4C with yellow calipers and carbon headlight surrounds!

BMW Z4

Was there yesterday evening.

The car was the same one exposed in Geneva (same frame number), but with carbon headlights instead of plastic ones.

The outer grey looks actually fantastic coupled with the red interior trim, I loved it.

In Geneva I did not notice how low the front bumper stands, any bump might really become an issue. Don't know whether this grey version had the (lower) LE suspensions, if not then the LE would stand even lower (!).
