Spy-Shots of Cars

If these spyshots are anything to go by, the Alfa Romeo 4C is set to receive the fabled Quadrifoglio Verde makeover, which should involve several aesthetic as well as performance enhancements. The four-leaf clover treatment in Alfa-speak usually denotes the highest possible trim for a model.

Fortunately for us, no amount of camouflage can really hide the 4C’s distinctive design, and immediately obvious are changes to the front of the car which now feature slightly larger air intakes along with a refreshed front bumper. Look closer and you might be able to spot new, smoked headlights.

Further additions – which the camouflage hilariously fails to mask – are the new side air intakes located directly in front of the rear wheels. New five, double-spoke wheels and a bolder side skirt complete the profile changes on the Alfa Romeo 4C Quadrifoglio Verde.

At the rear, a mildly updated bumper is present, with what appears to be a new exhaust pipe design, albeit a very minor alteration. Other amendments to the rear could be the inclusion of a more pronounced rear spoiler design – either that, or the camouflage is doing a good job.

The regular 4C comes equipped with a 1.75 litre, turbocharged inline four-cylinder producing 240 hp at 6,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 2,100 rpm, mated to a six-speed TCT dual-clutch gearbox. Top speed is officially rated at 258 km/h and the 0-100 km/h sprint is accomplished in 4.5 seconds.
