The exterior design admonishes two of Alfa Romeo’s most iconic cars – the front and rear end look like its taken from the 8C Competizione while the whole blueprint and dimensions – almost 4000 mm long, 2000 mm wide and 1180 mm high, refreshes memory of the classic 1967 33 Stradale. In short, the 4C is a fine mixture of classic and modern styling. Inside, Alfa Romeo uses carbon fibre to enhance the sense of uniqueness and light weight.
