The interior of the Alfa Romeo 4C has been revealed ahead of the car’s upcoming Geneva motor show unveiling, with the Italian manufacturer releasing a series of new images.

While several new exterior shots show more angles of the two-seater sports car first shown in production trim last month, the new batch of Alfa Romeo 4C images shows the high-quality red-and-back-themed interior for the first time.

Alfa Romeo 4C - 1

Inside, heavily bolstered black seats with red stitching, black door trims with red surrounds and a conventional handbrake lever and a flat-bottomed steering wheel with gear shift paddles accompany high-gloss carbonfibre touches on the door well and centre tunnel separating driver from passenger.

A brushed aluminium panel bearing the Alfa Romeo 4C’s name is inset into the clean black dash while the company’s badge is embroidered in red into the headrests of the seats complimenting the stitching.

Alfa Romeo 4C - 3

A 1.8-litre direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine will power the rear wheels of the four-metre long, two-metre wide Alfa Romeo 4C via a dual-clutch automatic gearbox in a combination that aims to see a power to weight ratio of less than 2.96kg/kW.

The compact mid-engined 4C is to be produced in the Maserati plant in Modena, Italy, before going on sale later this year.

The 2013 Geneva motor show kicks off on March 5.

    I’m not liking it. Seat looks wrong and uncomfortable and there’s no manual stick either.

    • Johnno

      Fair enough about not having a manual stick, however I would reserve judgement untill you drive it. It arguably looks great, has cutting edge dynamics and makes a Cayman look bloated. I get the feeling this will shock people……. 

      • Paige

        Shock people with poor build quality and dodgy reliability ?
        Nah that won’t shock coz it’s an Alfa.

        • Johnno

          Paige – you must have been teleported from the 70’s. Alfa is now no worse than any other European manufacturer. In fact, JD power surveys confirm Alfa is now better built than the VW owned conglomerate of manufacturers such as Audi. Japanese cars are still better.

      Yeah, the seat it bizarre – it is actually an acute angle, designed for people with short arms and long legs rather than the usual Italian fare which is designed for people with long arms and short legs.  It’s only a drawing, but it makes my back hurt to look at it.  No doubt the car will be nice, but that drawing is awful, not awesome

      Considering it is a dual clutch automatic (only) there is not much need for a magic wand. Just use the flappy paddles.
      Personally my complaint is the interior ( computer generated ) looks rather boring for a potentially A$120,000+ sports car.

        Might be 120K here, but no where else. Got to say the Porsche interior walks all over this one. In fact even a Focus interior looks pretty sharp by comparison

  • Monk

    That should be a pleasant environment within which to await the tow truck’s arrival.
    That said – I want one!

  • Zaccy16

    Looks good! wish i could afford one of these! if i win the lotto tonight i could by a fleet!

    • $29896495

      Looks a little tight to me. 

  • Morphian

    Seats are looking a little vertical… should be adjustable, me thinks.

    • $29896495

      Should be but those seats don’t look adjustable plus there is a fire wall right behind.

  • carnut

    all the comments above must take in consideration that this car is designed in turin by fiat not Milan by alfa romeo, its just a glorified fiat

    • Igomi Watabi

      I thought it was a glorified KTM? Or am I thinking of something else? Anyway, given that it’s now coming up to 27 years since FIAT acquired ALFA Romeo, then I think people do realise their respective styling departments are not autonomous. In fact, most of the people on here probably don’t remember anything else.

      But anyway, my comment on the interior – there’s not really a lot you can do with the interior of this kind of vehicle, is there. I mean, nobody would say the interior of an Elise is particularly attractive. This sort of vehicle is not about the looks or the luxury, it’s about the driving – I mean, if it were about posing, they would’ve made the outisde prettier.

  • B.mused

    the interior will be big enough
    I’ve been driving an MR2 Spyder recently – I’m 6’2″ and fit in easy enough – it basically has the exact same dimensions – wheelbase – 1.8 engine, weight …. as the Alfa

    re build quality
    my understanding is the carbon fibre is being done by Dallara who do the KTM and lots of racecars including all the Indycars etcthe assembly is by Maserati …. so it won’t be cheap … and it won’t fall apart. Dallara are in Parma just up the road from Modena where Maserati’s old factory is
