At the 2015 Dubai International Motorshow, Alfa Romeo, which was established 105 years ago on June 24, 1910, is showing a stunning new model that combines the past, present and future and is one of the most brilliant examples of Alfa Romeo’s automobile excellence.
The extraordinary 510hp Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, inspired by Ferrari technology and being shown for the first time anywhere in the world outside Europe, sees a new page being written in 2015 for the brand that never ceases to surprise.
Also on show are the latest Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio, Alfa Romeo 4C Coupé, and, also for the first time in the Middle East, the all-new Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, whose open-air performance cockpit and mid-engine proportions draw from more than 100 years of groundbreaking and functional Italian design.
Taking a starring role on the Alfa Romeo stand is the captivating 4C Coupé show car, the result of the partnership between the Alfa Romeo brand and Milan-based Garage Italia Customs, the company founded and owned by Lapo Elkann, the world-famous Italian creative entrepreneur.
Garage Italia Customs specialises in the creation of bespoke restyling and design projects on cars, boats, and scooters to reflect the unique personality and tastes of its customers.
The external livery of the 4C on show features matt pearl paint with a gradient-effect that runs from the black carbon-fibre based roof to the “Accursio” red body underneath. The engine cover also features the same gradient-effect paintwork, creating a feeling of completeness thanks to the transparent rear window that gives a glimpse of its colour and the mechanics.
In addition, the generous use of Alcantara, in shades of red and black on the seat upholstery, door panels, dashboard and roof, with a special gradient shade on the windscreen pillars – gives the car a further air of exclusivity.
The 4C Coupé show car created by Garage Italia Customs, is, therefore, the modern evolution of Italian craftsmanship excellence which is legendary across the world and makes the already extraordinary driving experience behind the wheel of an Alfa Romeo 4C even more unique.
