Alfa Romeo 4C Tuned by Zender Italia Is Stunning -

I remember when Zender tuned the Ford Capri boy i am old.

I can still remember scrolling through my 1996 issue of Auto Tuning Katalog and looking at Zender parts for Fiats and Alfa Romeos. They looked pretty cool, but not like the Alfa Romeo 4C they've customized this month.

Because everybody is preoccupied with the Frankfurt Motor Show, and they don't follow Zender on Facebook anyway, the project has gone unnoticed... until now.

Mind you, the base 4C is a stunning car in its own right, but it lacked aggression. What Zender did to fix this was to make a Cayman GT4 rival.

Starting at the front, we notice a new bumper has been installed. At the bottom, it has two protruding wings that resemble those on F1 cars, while carbon fiber air intakes have been added to cool the brakes.

You might notice that the insect-like headlights are flanked by extra plastic. That's because the front fenders have been widened to make room for larger alloy wheels. These have a central lock design and black spokes, making the 4C look like a baby Ferrari.

The side is dominated by an extra set of air intakes placed at the bottom. They've been designed so well that you can't tell Alfa Romeo didn't make them. New wing mirrors with carbon finish and Italian flag accents are small hints at the aggression and national price of the 4C.

A carbon fiber roof contrasts with the overall red body while the rear diffuser gives the 4C a premium look. The old exhaust pipes, which were simple and round, gave way to two sculpted tips that resemble the air intakes.

The interior of the Alfa Romeo sportscar can feel a little spartan when compared to the Porsche Cayman. But the guys at Zender have taken care of this too by covering everything in black leather with contrasting red stitching. Patches of Alcantara and black carbon fiber also give it an exotic taste.
