After years of anticipation the world of motoring recently got its first taste of the Alfa Romeo 4C, the first proper sports car they’ve made in more than two decades. And although it’s not perfect, the 4C is a fresh breath of lightweight, rear-drive air, in a world dominated by nose-heavy, front-drive dullness.
This is only the start of it, though. Pretty soon Alfa is going to launch a hard-core track version of the 4C and also a drop-top Spider version, which is the subject of this post. Here we have a pretty nice rendering by X-Tomi Design, trying to give us a preview of what the upcoming sports car may look like.
Alfa Romeo 4C Spider offers all that is good about the hardtop version, such as a nicely-balanced chassis, awesome agility, spine-tingling exhaust note, and absolutely beautiful looks, plus nine thousands miles of blue sky.
The lack of a hardtop may make the car a bit heavier and a bit less precise in terms of handling, but it offers many advantages that are more than make up for those compromises. Without the roof, not only you can hear the superb soundtrack of the track even more clearly, the driving experience becomes more of an occasion. What’s more, we think the 4C looks a lot sexier topless!
