Alfa Romeo 4C ‘Competizione’ and ‘Italia’ revealed

By Chris Thompson, 02 Mar 2018 News

Alfa Romeo 4C Competizione geneva

Special series sports coupes and Spiders to debut at Geneva Motor Show

Alfa Romeo has announced it will debut two more special edition cars at the Geneva Motor Show, the 4C Coupé Competizione and the 4C Spider Italia.

Both cars will be limited to 108 units each, just as the ‘NRING’ Stelvio Q and Giulia QV special editions, and each will be focused on a different outcome.

The Competizione, as you might have guessed, will be a tougher-looking version of the 4C Coupe, styled to seem more at home on the track than a standard 4C.

It’s finished in matte Vesuvio Grey, with carbon details on the roof, rear spoiler, mirror caps, side air vents and headlight moulding.

Dark-finish five-spoke wheels (18-inch fronts, 19 rears) with red brake callipers add to the look, while an Akrapovic exhaust allows the Competizione to be audibly differentiated from regular 4Cs.

Inside the Competizione, leather and microfiber seats with red stitching, a racing steering wheel, and a numbered badge on the central tunnel indicate the limited nature of the car.

It’s a similar story in the Italia, though the styling is more elegant than aggressive… and the roof isn’t permanent.

Instead of racing seats and a steering wheel, the Italia scores an Alpine premium Hi-Fi system, and sports a Misano Blue paint finish.

Asymmetric five-spoke wheels in the same sizes as the Competizione partially cover yellow brake calipers, which matches yellow stitching on the seats, dashboard, steering wheel, and door panels.

The Italia also gains an Akrapovic exhaust, though it’s visually easier to spot thanks to a "Spider Italia" sticker in the colours of the Italian flag on the side of the car.

As with the NRING special editions, Alfa Romeo Australia is yet to confirm whether any of the 4C special editions will make it to Australia.
