    Geneva 2014: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

    Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Doesnít Have Ugly Headlights

    Last year, Alfa Romeo launched its 4C sports car at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and this year the Italian automaker returned with a 4C Spider variant, previewing the future convertible sports car.

    The soft-top 4C Spider is scheduled to enter production next year and remains an ultra-lightweight, high-performance driving machine. To retain the Alfa Romeo 4Cís focus and purity, the Italian automaker extensively used carbon fiber along with low-density Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC) to keep the 4C Spider lightweight and agile. But the most interesting component on the 4C Spider preview are the headlights. Perhaps the automaker listened to the feedback on the 4Cís funky headlights and decided more traditional units is the way to go.

    I actually liked the old headlights - these look a little too much Michael Bay Transformers for me...

    I've been waiting for the next Toyota MR2 to come out. Sweet.

    I love this.

    When does it go on sale in the US? For that matter, when does the hardtop?

    The original headlights made me think of an insect alien being. Creepy. Icky creepy.

    Not a fan of spider styling.

    The alfa coupe is better.

    Re: Geneva 2014: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

    Where's the roof go when it's a convertible?

    Is it a hard top targa or soft top roof?

    I had a mid engined Lancia scorpion that had a soft top that rolled up into the targa bar....

    It was actually a really sweet idea at the time.

    Still wish the a/c worked on that dam car...it was hot during the summer months.
