Alfa Romeo has just released some never before seen images of the 4C, before its official unveiling at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March.
While the interior does look exciting at first glance, it seems to fall flat in certain aspects. From what I can gather, you will be getting a lot of carbon fiber and plastic in the interior of this car. Carbon fiber lines the door sill, bottom of the center console, and I’m sure in other hidden places as well. The dashboard looks to be made of plastic, as well the center console. The bucket seats are very simple, and don’t look all too comfortable, but the stitching and logo included on them are very stylish. However, I’m not upset with this simplistic approach to the Alfa Romeo 4C’s interior, in fact, I prefer it.
If I’m driving a little sports car, I don’t want all the bells-and-whistles, and a lot of clutter. Instead, I want a simple interior with as few buttons as possible. That way I can pay attention to the most important part: the road in front of me.
Overall, I wasn’t expecting a Rolls-Royce type of interior in the 4C, but who was? Its a 2-seater that will hopefully offer a thrilling ride, not an extraordinary interior. I must be a freak of nature because I’d prefer the bare minimum over the flash, but that’s just how it is when you want a driver’s car.
