As a driving machine, the Alfa Romeo 4C is… flawed. But it is extremely pretty. So we’re not sure Zender’s new bodykit for the 4C is entirely necessary, but it does add a certain something to the dinky coupe’s styling.
Namely, lots of carbonfibre. Make that lots more cabronfibre, as the 4C is largely made of the stuff. Fortunately, Zender has resisted the urge to add big spoilers and splitters, instead crafting lots of little flicks and tunnels to improve cooling and aero.
The wheels are rather sexy race-spec centre-lock items. Though the suspension isn’t lowered, the wheels and body bits combine to notcieably improve the 4C’s stance.
The interior has been luxed up with leather, alcantara and red stitching. Yet 15kg has been shaved off the hardly lardy 895kg kerbweight.
Some extra power has been squeeze from 1.75-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine. An extra 34bhp lifts the output to 271bhp and torque increases to 295lb/ft. According to Zender the 0-62mph time drops to 4.3secs. Unfortunately, the power plant is still hamstrung by the uncooperative dual-clutch gearbox.
Though weren’t not sure Zender’s bodykit particularly enhances the 4C’s styling, it doesn’t detract from it either. Now we just need someone – Alfa themselves, preferably – it invest some time and effort into making it handle properly.
