Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

2014-03-04 15:18

This is what we can expect from Alfa Romeo - the stunning new 4C Spider. It's making its debut at the 2014 Geneva auto show and will go into production in 2015.

  • Alfa Romeo 4C Spider preview
  • Captivating pictures, mesmerising sound track
  • Watch the 'creation' video

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider seen at the 2014 Geneva auto show was a pre-production prototype designed by the Centro Stile.

The show preview model was an exercise in style intended to selecte contents to be implemented for production, scheduled for early 2015.

Video: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

Alfa said: "The convertible development of the 4C is a valuable secret to be guarded carefully and hidden away from prying eyes." The video was presented to the international news media at the March 2014 Geneva auto show.
The opening frames show a revolving 4C stroked and pierced by laser beams which transform it, after an explosion-implosion sequence, into a 4C Spider which isrevealed one feature at a time. The video continues with a sequence of wide and narrow shots of the car to suggest it's shapes without ever showing it in full.


What appears to be the end is actually only the beginning: the screen lights up and the music resumes with new power. Finally, the camera spins about the 4C Spider and all the stunning car's details are disclosed under bright white light.

"A crescendo of emotion," Alfa says, "leading from the dark of the beginning to the full light of creation."
