Displayed at the last year’s Geneva Motor Show, the beast is a one-off model with 4C architecture, and now it’s up for sale. So if somehow you think the regular Alfa Romeo 4C isn’t beautiful enough to you, you might love this thing more.
As a one-off 4C with custom exterior, this Alfa is clearly a special vehicle. You will want to attend RM Sotheby’s Lake Como auction next month if you’re interested in buying the car, because it will be there.
As you can see, the 4C’s exterior looks striking and aggressive, while retaining Alfa Romeo’s design language. Dubbed the Mole Handicraft Construction 001, the model was made last year, after late FCA boss Sergio Marchionne announced that the current 4C wouldn’t have a successor in the future. Basically, the car was a normal 4C that had clocked around 25,000 miles, until it was modified and transformed into this cool-looking creation.
The one responsible for drawing the design was Umberto Palermo of Up Design. The sports car got a new face that looks angrier and more masculine than ever before. The headlights will remind you of those of the Giulia sedan, while the tail have probably got some Zagato in it.
Not only the vehicle gained a new body, but also multi-spoke aftermarket wheels replacing the regular ones. In addition, the transformation has given the 4C two more exhaust pipes, making a total of four.
Despite all these changes, the vehicle is essentially still an Alfa Romeo 4C. Yes, it packs a 1.75-liter straight-four engine that delivers 237-horsepower to the rear wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The interior has been refreshed with two-tone premium leather, making it look more elegant.
RM Sotheby’s exclusive Villa Erba auction will kick off on May 25. There, in Lake Como, Italy, the special Alfa will go under hammer. We don’t see an estimated price listed. However, since this is an enhanced version of the regular 4C and is the only one that exists in the world, you better believe that it will be more expensive than the normal 4C.
