We’d Love To See This Alfa 4C Concept As An 8C Competizione Successor
If you take the original 4C Concept and sprinkle a few modern Alfa Romeo design cues on it, you might just end up with something that looks very menacing indeed.
The way designer Khashayar Jenabi went about creating this concept involved a two step process. First, he completely redesigned the 4C, and then he took that rendering and made an Abarth version of it.
While the rear end design looks original enough, albeit with some Giulia elements clearly visible, the front seems to borrow some cues from the Bugatti Chiron hypercar. Other notable design elements include the two piece rear wing, shark-like air intakes and, on the electrified version, a blue cover masking the exhaust pipe.
The concept was drawn up in multiple configurations, with different rear diffusers and front spoilers, and though it’s just a rendering, it would be a fitting successor to the gorgeous 8C Competizione supercar.
In the real world, Alfa Romeo is doing its best at making a comeback, with models such as the Giulia saloon and Stelvio SUV earning multiple awards since their debuts. But while the 4C and 4C Spider have received mostly positive reviews, they really aren’t supercars, are they?
This concept, however, does look like a supercar should and would be an exquisite halo car for Alfa Romeo, much more so than the 4C. The latter, though, is supposed to be replaced, probably this year, so there’s a chance it might grow up and play with the big boys instead of the Porsche 718.
