Umberto Palermo Design from Italy has redesigned the Alfa Romeo 4C, reinterpreting the bodywork and interior in an effort to follow the tradition of the country’s coachbuilders. Debuting at the Turin Auto Show, this painstakingly-detailed artisanal project will remain a one-off.
The body of the Alfa Romeo Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001 is 20 cm longer and 6 cm wider than a stock 4C. While the height remains unchanged, the body is much closer to the ground, making it more aggressive, especially with the diagonal headlights. Also not to be missed is the louvered rear window. The interior features contrasting black and tan leather matched with carbon fibre.
The team has not touched the mechanics, so the Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001 has the same turbocharged 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine as the standard 4C, with 0-100 km/h acceleration at 4.5 seconds and a 258 km/h top speed.
