Black 4C walkaround

Hi

Check out Alfa Romeo 4C - YouTube

Wanted to share this one with you, for a couple of reasons :

- First movie apart from this one Alfa Romeo 4C at Balocco Race Track - YouTube I have seen featuring a black one.
- It gives a realistic perspective of how wide yet small and very, very low the car is.
- If you set the volume of the voices to normal speaking level (a bit louder maybe as it is in German and those guys always speak a bit loud), you will get a good impression of how loud that exhaust really is.

This is the movie that for me comes closest to the experience I had some weeks ago of seeing a 4C IRL.

Oh, and another reason would be is that I love the black color and I ordered one in it

If they are the standard lights rather than the carbon surrounds, I think I will save myself the (I think) 2.5k premium for the LED lights/carbon surrounds package. Look fine with black car

As far as I can tell (and have been offered the choice) 4C is only available in Alfa Nero 601 Black, so "pastel". I would have payed silly money to have in Grigio Lipari but looking at the vid, I almost see some dark grey in there. Perhaps some serious waxing?

The 4C I saw up close in the dealership has about a meter of exhaust spit behind it from revving it a bit. Hence the cleaning lady here I think. Pretty sure she had to come back at the end of this vid.

I found the correct way to paint plastic bumpers so was tuned in to paint the surrounds body color or have them removed and carbon sticker applied rather than paying the silly money for the "real" carbon ones.
(which in my market I believe means you also have to take the led lights, so about 4500 Euros extra in total...)
But like you say, from this vid there seems to be no need. I played it on TV frame by frame and I detect no carbon weave, so should be the standard ones.

The car in that video has the optional carbon headlight frames, not the standard ones.

You think so? I have to admit it is more shiny than I have seen the standard ones beeing, they look matte, but on the other hand I see no carbon weave at all. So perhaps these are standards polished with something oily like Meguiar 7 or similar?

The standard ones are indeed matte. Those are carbon fiber frames, not polished standard ones. Also, you can clearly see the carbon weave as the camera moves around the car about 6-7 seconds in. I've seen cars both with the standard and the carbon surrounds, and those are definitely carbon. I don't have a shadow of doubt about that.

Found the dealership of the youtube flick, plus another one with a black 4C, this time with a red dual tone interior. Not to my taste but perhaps someone here would like to see.

I noticed you seem to know a lot about the car. Do you perhaps know what material the standard frames are made of?

I think it looks fantastic in Black. Better than the other colours I've seen so far!
