Alfa Romeo has long been considered one of the top luxury car brands in the world, and for good reason. The blend of style and performance found in the Alfa Romeo 4C, for example, is truly legendary. How could it possibly be improved upon?
Sometimes you just want to put your own mark on your prized vehicle, making it your own. Garage Italia Customs took the 4C that everyone loves and gave it a vinyl wrap that looks like a snakeskin, calling to mind the vehicle’s speed and precision handling on the track.
Lapo Elkan, owner of GIC and designer of the wrap, along with a company called Italia Independent, has decided to call the look the “Deadly Snake.” The wrap was actually inspired by the Adidas Football Deadly Focus Pack, and it echoes the look of the X15 and Ace 16 football shoes produced by Adidas in a limited-edition pack.
How Does the Alfa Romeo 4C “Deadly Snake” Drive?
When it came to the Alfa Romeo 4C’s engine, everyone agreed that there really was no need for any upgrades, and the Deadly Snake runs as stock.
The stock 4C comes with a 237 horsepower, 1.75-liter four-cylinder engine. This may not seem like a huge power source, but when you consider that the car only weighs around 2,300 pounds, it’s easy to see how blazing fast this Alfa is. The vehicle goes from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4.5 seconds, which should be fast enough to impress even the most hardened of critics. The handling and smoothness of the ride are classic Alfa Romeo. It’s a unique driving experience that offers the same quality that’s come to be associated with the brand over the years.
The Deadly Snake is truly something different, and it really sets the owner apart from the rest of the crowd. There’s nothing else out there quite like it. The striking black and white scaled pattern hugs the body of the car lovingly, and you can’t help but take a second look. The Alfa Romeo 4C, in general, is a car for the enthusiast who wants something a little different, a little special, and we’re proud to be able to offer this at our Alfa Romeo dealership in Santa Monica or Van Nuys.
