Alfa Romeo Shows 4C In Deep Red, Wins Award
We'd imagine the Alfa Romeo 4C's curves look good even before they're covered in paint, but the concept's paint schemes have been spot on. The original icy red simply refused to be ignored, and the follow-up fluid metal silver was nearly as luxurious. For the Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este this past weekend, Alfa presented a new color of 4C. And it's every bit as mesmerizing as its predecessors.
We haven't seen the proper name for the new paint, but what we do see is a deep, robust red that hugs the 4C's curves as naturally as lipstick on a supermodel's lips.
Despite the fact that the 4C debuted more than a year ago, the new deep-red paint job was enough to help the 4C beat out notables like the BMW Zagato Coupe in taking home the design award for concepts and prototypes.
Alfa's good fortune in Lake Como didn't stop with the 4C. It took home a total of four awards at the event, including the "Concorso d'Eleganza Best of Show" for the rare 1933 6C 1750 GS that it displayed. The public agreed with the best of show jury that the 6C 1750 GS was the best of the elite, earning Alfa the Coppa d'Oro, essentially the public "best of show."
It may still be a concept today, but the 4C will soon be a driveable reality. Alfa Romeo is prepping the concept for production, and it should be available in the US as of 2014 - hopefully in all three colors we've seen thus far.
